We stayed for two nights in a self-contained cottage in a small well looked-after garden. Facilities in our cottage were excellent and if our schedule had allowed we would have liked to stay on as the lodge was well situated for walking into Wanaka.

Centrally situated in Wanaka . Unfortunately no air-con and it was Hot. A small shady garden helped and the service in the wooden building was super. Breakfast in common gave lots of possibilities for meeting others and exchange tips about the region.

I found Wayne and Mandy very easy to deal with and very helpful. They gave us a property within easy walking distance of Wanaka township and just a couple of blocks from Paradiso Cinema.

I stayed at Te Wanaka lodge before and after joining a guided trek into Mt Aspiring National Park. I was able to leave me luggage while tramping, and the lodge is centrally located to Wanaka and the trekking company's HQ. The room was very cosy and well appointed, the bed very comfortable - especially after the trek! Delicious breakfast and... More

Value for money! Great environment and decent rooms. We had a room right next to the common dining area. Only issue is that sound proofing isn't very good so I could hear almost everything happening and talking as I was a light sleeper. Cooked breakfast was nice with crispy pancakes served! Ski advice and decent discount vouchers were given to... More

Had a great stay at Te Wanaka Lodge, 5 nights in the Cottage. The staff was very friendly and helpful, cooked us nice breakfast every morning that we ate at the communial table chatting to the other guests. The outdoor hottub was fantastic after a day on the slopes. Highly recommend and will stay again.

Worst experience I have ever had dealing with the management of accommodation. Backpackers are better! They advertise a hot spa but it was not functioning when we were there.

We are sorry you felt this way about the accommodation. You were offered an apology and all issue's (that were in our control) were resolved. I feel DIY work in a neighbouring property is hardly something we could control, but offered nonetheless to sort it, should this continue.
