The hotel was very close to the shops and lake wanaka and we even had an average view of the lake. Old facilities and room interiors put me off but it was worth for the money we paid. There is no air conditioning in the room but they do provide you with a fan. The bathroom sink had 2 taps...

A very nice hotel. It doe not look much at the onset, especially the parkingplace, but once inside it is a good, nice, well maintained hotel. The reception service was great, very help full, free wifi in your room (very fast!). A good refrigerator and spotless bathroom completes this stay. And please, try the mexican restaurant next door! Review pending.

Conveniently located in town centre of wanaka, near restaurants & bars & bus transportation. Simple & clean. Design and hotel pretty old and looks like it could do with an overhaul but overall still ok for short stay.

Aged hotel but not expensive. Our room had no view and we did not even get a place to park the car. Location is pretty much in the center of town. People walked past directly in front of our windows to dispose garbage.

We only had one night at Wanaka Hotel. We were very comfortable there,it's close to Restaurants and shops, has even a great guest kitchen. Our room made it possible to sit in the lovely garden for a pre dinner drink. Would definitely recommend this.

The hotel was in a great spot and staff were friendly. Our room was comfortable and adequate for our needs. We enjoyed the hotel restaurant Amigos. The carpark is busy but we were able to get a free parking spot.

Great room in a great location, well appointed and a nice surprise to find a well equiped kitchen available for guests free use. Check in easy, friendly and very efficient. Great to find place that caters for three individuals in the same room.
