The location is very good, very close to Lake Wanaka. Even I don’t understand, this house made entirely of wood keeps beeping. When I booked the room, I saw netizens mentioning this problem and didn't pay much attention to it. However, when I moved in, it felt very loud. Friends who need quiet sleep at night should be careful. And the Motel feels a bit old, and I didn’t take any pictures😅

The hotel is in a good location, with a large garden just outside the door and a 10-minute walk to Wanaka Tree. Next to a large supermarket. The hygiene is also good. The room is big enough and has a microwave. No breakfast.

Amazing location, that was by far the highlight. Building is in much need of a makeover. Everything is old, run down and gross. Curtains were moldy in both shower and bedroom area. Grime in corners of bathroom., just icky! Smoke detector looked like it was purchased in the 90s doubt if it worked, if it did it would long be expired. We stayed in 8 different places on our holiday and this was by far the worst and for nearly $300 a night I expected much more! It came across to us that the owners only cared about $$$ not the safety of their customers or providing them with a pleasant experience. Such a shame.

Great location in Wānaka for walking, shopping, groceries, and dining. Spacious balcony at our room with nice view for an evening drink. Area was quiet after 10:00 pm. With some street noise before that (we were there on a Friday night). Nicely stocked kitchen, but bathroom was stocked with only hand wash soap dispenser at single (body wash?) dispenser in shower Used our own shampoo, conditioner, and body balm. Room had unique “ski chalet” appearance with wooden planks on walls and ceilings, Great look, but apparently the warm day and cool night, the result was a “popping noise” of shifting planks. If you are light sleeper, this is not a good option for you. Overall, a pleasant stay for us.

The room had a sink to wash cups etc but it drained in to the overflow of the bath/shower tub causing the water to flow in to the bath/shower tub leaving black bits in it - yuck!! One of the wall lights was held on with electrician's tape and another had no glass cover. The mattress was lacking in padding so not a very comfortable night. The shower also had a constant drip which could be heard in the bedroom.

Average hotel. All basic facilities like kitchenette etc is available. Reception only 10 am to 6 PM. No daily house keeping g and no attached restaurant. Very close to the centre restaurants and the lake. Bus pick up and drop is 5 minutes walk. May not recommend for stay.

Great location. Insufficient onsite parking. Older wooden rooms. Our room creaked & cracked. However overall the room was fine & it was good having a kitchenette & sink.

Right in the center of Wanaka, only a few minutes walk to the lake and restaurants, with a huge supermarket right beside the motel. Beautiful wood interior, but you must be aware of the downside as they can create wood cracking sound during sunrise when temperature gets higher, so don't be alarmed by that. The beddings are comfortable, wifi is fast and shower is strong. Overall this is a great value and convenient place to stay in Wanaka

Moderately priced room with basic amenities and a great location - just a block or two from the lakefront park, restaurants, and shops. Nothing fancy and a bit dated, but just what we wanted for our night in Wanaka. Nice to have a kitchenette.
