We stayed at Wanaka View Motel for 2 nights, and couldn't have been happier. Our host was so welcoming and cheerful, and she told us about some great live music happening that evening at a local pub. The location is perfect - easily walkable to everything in town (we even walked

This little motel has a prime location right across from the park and five minutes from town. The views, particularly from our front room were spectacular. There was parking for four cars and if neccessary for more just across the road. The owner was very welcoming, friendly

We really enjoyed our 3 nights at the WVM. We had #4 and I would encourage getting one of the two front units since the entire front wall is glass and windows to a fantastic view. The down side is you’re on display if you don’t close the curtains. Plenty of windows to get a

We stayed in the “studio” aka converted garage. Very claustrophobic with low ceiling (215cm) and chest high windows opening onto ground level outside, meaning the room was partially underground and therefore very dark. No screens on the windows and no other means of ventilation

I am a little disappointed at your review in view of the fact that I allowed you to check in at 10am and took your bags and stored your food in the fridge for you. This is a purpose built motel and has never had garaging. Thank you for pointing out the need for air-conditioning, this issue has not been raised before. For safety reasons guests cannot park in such a way as to impede access to the chalets. There is unlimited and free parking within 5 meters of the chalets. The SMART TVs are internet capable.

You can see the lake from the rooms. A big park sits between the apartments and the lake front. Probably a 500m walk from door to shore :)
