Superb layout of the complex, each room seems like it has it's own viewing corridor, most to the lake. Fabulous cafe and a top shelf coffee. We booked for a night but added another we were so taken with the place.

Amazing view to wake up to - ducks on the pond and view of the lake and poplars in the near distance. Nice and quiet location with clean rooms and friendly staff. The restaurant menu could be a bit more extensive but great service and accomodating hosts

The location provides beautiful views and a lovely stroll to town along the waterfront. Concierge George provided helpful information on a myriad of options, including helicopter rides, hiking trail conditions, and places to eat along the way during the next stage of our journey away from Wanaka. The room was comfortable. The breakfast was expensive, but delicious. Also, there is...

Edgewater is a nice little spot about 20 minutes walk from the city centre of Wanaka. The rooms were fairly simple but nice. The bathroom needs a bit of work and looking a bit old. The price was very reasonable. We had a bay window in our room which was a nice place to sit and relax

This Hotel has the most beautiful surroundings and you can arrive via helicopter. I had a rental car so it was easy to find. It is on the edge of the lake so one can enjoy the water& mountains. People are from around the Globe so it must be a popular destination hotel. I believe their high teas are amazing...

We stayed at this large hotel for several days and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The view from the room was beautiful, looking across the lake to the mountains. The room was a standard size with a balcony, a table on the balcony would have been useful. The hotel has a room with washing machine and dryer. A special mention has...

We have stayed several times at Edgewater. The location is great, surroundings beautiful and the accommodation well maintained and very clean. A good choice Summer or Winter. If you are energetic it is about 15 to 20 minutes pleasant and easy walk to town. There's a taxi service in Wanaka to take you back if you are less enthusiastic for...

The 2-bed rooms apartment is really great. Big enough for a family with 6 persons. New and with full furniture. Lake views are excellent. Parking is perfect just next to the apartment. It is pitty that I can stay there for only 1 night. Better to stay for 2 nights to have a relax walk on the lake side.

We thought we would treat the family to some lakeside luxury, unfortunately the Edgewater didn't stand up to the mark of other 4 star hotels we have stayed in before. The view of the lake from our room was perfect, only to be improved by the autumn tones. Check-in, evening restaurant and house keeping staff, were friendly and efficient. But...

Edgewater lies right at the water’s edge of Lake Wanaka. It is the perfect destination for you to experience all that Central Otago’s seasons have to offer. Our long, hot summers fade slowly into beautiful autumn colours, before the clear mountain air promises snow and crisp winter days. As the snowfalls melt, spring returns with its lush, bright greens. At Edgewater we have genuine local knowledge that complements our inviting accommodation and enticing seasonal menu. We can unlock the very best Wanaka experiences, tailored for you. Edgewater is a four star Qualmark graded property situated on the edge of Lake Wanaka. Come and touch the seasons at Edgewater. ... more   less
