The lady receptionist is ok but is not as friendly as compared to many hotel/motel I stayed in New Zealand. The laundry is not opened 24 hour. Traveller like me may come back to the hotel late and may wish to do the laundry late.

Our room was a good size and the bathroom was relatively new. We had a lake view and despite the stormy night we had a blissful sleep. Service was friendly. We were within walking distance of all the eateries. Off-street parking too. We will look to stay here again if we visit Wanaka.

Great location but you can hear all of the footsteps and annoying noises the guests on the second floor and on the other rooms are making. Not enough parking space too. Would not recommend to others..
