Located in a quiet neighbourhood which can be hard to find. The reception was friendly, with good info about the town. The room was clean and we found it spacious for a family of four. The provision of plunger coffee was appreciated. Also make sure you get your laundry in early as there is a curfew. There are no shops...

There were three of us and we stayed one night and we were happy with our accommodation. The rooms were clean, comfortable and we had a lovely view of the mountain from the kitchen window. A nice way to eat breakfast! It was very quiet so we slept well and only a short drive into town. We had our own...

The Manuka Crescent Motel was value for money, it had everything you could possibly need and was close the everything. We arrived around 5.30pm and the staff were absolutely lovely, they had put the heating on for us and made sure the room had everything it needed. We had twin beds and a sitting area, very spacious for a motel...

This was a perfect place to stay for 2 nights while we enjoyed the lovely Lake Wanaka. The motel was really well equipped and even had a guest laundry that was free!!! It was an easy walk to town. Would highly recommend to people traveling as a family.

The Manuka Crescent Motel is a pretty standard accommodation. We used this location as a landing pad during our time in Wanaka, and as a result we arrived back at our room late and left early, primarily using the room for showering and sleeping (and it is perfect for that sort of thing). Our room had one queen bed and...

This place was great, especially for the price. We booked a two bedroom place and it was very roomy. It seemed really clean and check in was nice and easy- we were given complimentary milk for our tea. The bathroom was huge and the bathtub was awesome. Overall, would definitely recommend and stay at this place again.

The motel itself was very modern and clean with plenty of room. We stayed in a 1 bedroom family unit for 1 night. When we first arrived (Dec 28th) it was a boiling hot day and couldn't wait to swim as I made sure we picked a motel with pool as my kids LOVE the water. I was told that...

Hi Kirsty thank you for taking the time to review us we appreciate it and would like to take the opportunity to respond to the points made, the pool is not advertised on any sites as it is really nothing more than a children's splash pool and the main reason people visit Wanaka in the Summer is to make use...

Quiet location, 3 min drive from town. Very helpful staff, clean and tidy. Definitely worth considering. We stayed with 4 people in a large unit and it did not feel too crowded, we needed some stuff printed out at reception, no problem. Extra coffee sachets, no problem. All in all a very good experience.

We did not enjoy our two night stay here. There walls are thin and we heard banging from the adjoining unit the whole evening and kids being loud early next morning. Our room was hot during the day and had to leave the windows open to air out the room, but since windows screens are rare in NZ, we had...
