Great stay in Wanaka!”

We stayed at Wanaka Hotel for 2 night with a 7 months old baby. The location of the hotel is perfect, within a short stroll from the lakefront and all the shops and restaurants around. There's a little supermarket just across the street and a bigger one a couple of minutes drive away. We stayed in one of the lake facing rooms and we love our view! Our room had clearly been renovated recently and it had all the amenities one could hope for. However the hotel itself is a bit dated and it shows, for example in the fact that there's no lift available. Kitchen and laundry are available to guests and there are a couple of restaurants and a cafè within the hotel. The staff at check in was super helpful! Would love to stay here again.

Love!!!”

Loved our stay here at the Wanaka Hotel although it was just a night stay. The room was clean and cozy and I could step out of our room to an amazing view of Wanaka town. Everything was just within our walking distance and we decided to take a cool, breezy stroll along the main street. Parking is convenient as well. Not exactly the cheapest place but it was well worth it. :)

Good value, no frills”

The Wanaka Hotel was perfectly situated close to all of the towns attractions (lake, shops, restaurants). Our room was very clean and well-equipped, with a heater, TV and balcony, as well as a decent bathroom. Our only real complaints are of the pillows/bed and the noise. As the hotel houses many guests and is in an older building, it's extremely loud and not at all soundproof. Not only were the walls thin, but we could clearly hear the people above us. Despite this, the hotel is perfectly adequate and well worth the price if you're looking for a mid-range, 3 star stay.

Excellent location, clean bight room and very comfortable.”

We overnighted here whilst travelling the South Island. Wanaka is a wonderful town to visit. There is a plethora of restaurants and shops to visit. The hotel was convenient to walking into town, the staff were friendly and helpful. Our only complaint would be that the WiFi is a little inconsistent and weak.

We stayed here for one night. Great little town with great scenery around Lake Wanaka. our accommodation was clean and well equipped and the bar and restaurant served magic steaks - one of the best steak meals we had whilst in New Zealand. I would stay here again - the location is a great tourist attraction.
