Lovely stay in a clean, well kept room. The best part was the beautiful view over the lake, especially at night and first thing in the morning. It was easy to organise with helpful and friendly staff even when we arrived outside office hours. Would definitely recommend.

Very good price, and absolutely spectacular views from the room. The staff were very welcoming and had provided the room to us in a pristine condition. Very comfortable bed on the mezzanine floor - and again, that view! Simply amazing! They were so accommodating too, they gave us a free late check out because it was our anniversary on the...

The staff were great, the motel was clean and very handy to shopping and restaurants. The view of the lake was really mesmerising The bedrooms were a good size and the living area had everything you could want.

We arrived there at around 6pm and it's really nice for the lady staff to wait for us before they closed the reception. It's really pitch dark when we arrived and we had some difficulty locating the motel after passing by the motel twice unknowingly. The motel is really clean, cosy and spacious. The morning sceneries were really mind-blowing. The...

Booked this 6 hours before turning up and we weren't disappointed with the choice! Comfortable and well appointed. The main wow is the view out the window! You come here to look at the lake and mountain, and that's exactly what you get with this motel. Worth every cent to be able to look out the window to that! Very...

After getting into the room it was very cold and never really heated up. There were electric blankets and that was a savor. Hand soap at the hand basin and a look a like one in the shower after you are in there you find it is only shampoo so very frustrating. Nice view from verandah.

Very enjoyable balcony (shared with the next room, but we never saw them, only their boots they put out there to air) where we had our fish and chips takeaway dinner with beer and oysters on a brisk evening overlooking the lake. We walked to the green space / park across the road to lie on the grass and look...

My reason for choosing this motel was that I wanted a room with a view and I was not disappointed. We were very comfortable in our room which appeared to have been refurbished fairly recently. The young woman in reception was very pleasant. I did have a couple of reservations. We had to drive down a steep driveway to park....

After a long time on the road, the greatest pick-me-up would be a warm smile and a safe, comfortable stay. What was certainly a great surprise was its excellent location. Rested on a hill, the unsurpassed views to the lake was as its name suggested, lakeview. It is extremely refreshing to wake up to such a sight and very relaxing...

Stopped over Wanaka for one night on our way back to Queenstown and this place was a great find, great value for its fabulous view and it has everything that you need - kitchenette, separate toilet and clean shower, mini lounge and bay window area perfect for serving breakfast. Couple of minutes walk down to shops and restaurants. Small 2...
