THIS is the place to stay in Wanaka. It's a 5 minute good-for-exercise walk to town. Because it's on a hill, you have magnificent views of Lake Wanaka. We stayed in room 6, which had an excellent, firm Queen bed and a loft with a single bed. The room also had a table by a huge window where you can...

We are currently staying here right now for 2 nights. We were so impressed with this little gem that I needed to write a review instantly. This is a two leveled unit with an amazing broad view of Wanaka and the lake. Upstairs is the bedroom with a divider wall, allowing you to see downstairs and the amazing views through...

We stayed for two nights and loved this motel. The room was spacious and comfortable and the view over the lake was fabulous. The hostess was kind and helpful, and we were glad to take advantage of the laundry service. I am happy to recommend this motel, and if we return to Wanaka we would definitely stay there again.

Stayed there in Sep 2013. The hotel was overlooking the Lake Wanaka and the view was spectacular. Room was clean and spacious. The motel provides free unlimited wifi to their guests! The host was friendly and was accomodating.

Stayed here during our honeymoon. True to what the other reviews say, the view is spectacular! On the first morning, we saw a huge rainbow stretch across Wanaka lake from our window! Coupled with snow capped mountains in the distance, it was indeed a view to die for. Rooms were quiet, clean and warm, with a heater in the bathroom...

Being set one street up from lake level, Lakeview Motel has a great outlook over Lake Wanaka while also being close enough to walk into the town centre. Our unit on the top level had a staircase up into a second, smaller bed (which could be useful for families or travelling parties of three adults). We thought Lakeview Motel was...

We really liked this motel. It was a nice place for the money we paid and we would definitely return and recommend to others. The owner was lovely and pleasant. There is quite a steep hill to the town which isn't made clear on the website but other than this it was great. It was fine for us as we...
