Perth, Australia
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

We had just one night here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room was on the small side but very comfortable with everything to make so. Tea, coffee , muffins, biscuits and fresh fruit available in the lounge all day. We enjoyed sitting in the lounge and relaxing. Free laundry facilities. Breakfast was very good and enjoyed chatting with fellow travelers....

We were delighted with this spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and very welcoming accommodation. Excellent breakfast, very good facilities including a central guest lounge, garden with garden furniture and very good laundry. Well positioned for lovely walks by the lake.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. I too enjoy the seclusion and shelter of being surrounded by established trees and gardens and then only a two minute walk to the lake front.

Our greeting was mechanistic and lacking any warmth. Our room had sloping ceilings and felt quite pokey. There are good additional facilities such as free laundry and inviting sitting room. Coffee and tea are available downstairs to take back to your room. The bedrooms doors are very noisy when they shut and we were awoken by photographer guests at 5...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. All feed back is important so we can make changes to enhance our guests stay. I apologise sincerely if my greeting was mechanical. That is certainly not how I wish to portray myself. The room you stayed in is the smallest in the bed and breakfast lodge but is advertised...

Lodge was away from the main commercial district right next to a park and the lakeside. Attractive buildings and very nice rooms. We were told that the building was constructed using materials from an older structure. We were able to do our laundry when we arrived. Nice and quiet at night and breakfasts were superb. We highly recommend this lodge.

This hotel is very nice. Well-appointed, and delicious breakfast! They also have very nice products in the bathroom! It is not directly in the town center, but very close-by. The staff is also very friendly.

Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. The hosts were so kind, the room was clean and cute, the breakfast was wonderful, and the location is just far enough from the center but just close enough too. Highly recommend this one, if you can get a reservation.

Wonderful location, with breathtaking scenery from every location within the facility. We were there for just over 3 weeks and from day 1 we were made to feel very welcome by wonderful extremely hard working staff. The whole place is kept spotlessly clean and if you are lucky enough to be on the B&B option Thea's breakfasts are superb and...

We booked the side cottage for myself and the family in the winter to go skiing. The cottage was warm and well designed in an open plan manner. There was no shortage of extra heating and bedding. You could fit a lot more people into this cottage with the number of beds and size of rooms. The kitchen was well...

The lodge is beautiful. It was all renovated a few years ago I think, and they did an amazing job creating a modern lodge with old & original wood. The breakfast was delicious, the rooms were large and clean. Overall, it may be the best place to stay in Wanaka!

We stayed in Ruby cottage, 4 adults sharing, and self-catered. Beautiful rooms, spotlessly clean and spacious, with comfortable beds, sofas and dining set. Kitchen had everything you would need to cook and tidy up after. Fridge was extremely cold, due to no cover on the freezer box, but we managed. Free on-site laundry room was an unexpected bonus. Well-maintained garden,...
