My husband and I recently stayed for one night to attend a function at the Cardrona Distillery. Upon check in, the owner really laboured the point of any damage will be charged to our card. We are respectful people who would never damage a hotel room. I was quite taken aback. He went on to tell us that a group of men who attended the same event last year left their room in a state. He presumed they were associated with us, which I found quite presumptuous. He was in fact, wrongly accusing us of being guilty by association and an association we did not have! In fact, the owner mentioned it to our other friends, both couples, who checked in just after us. We were all a bit miffed. The rooms are extremely dated and tired. The queen bed was soft with old linen. The bathroom was…
We stayed here for two nights, the room was very spacious and sparkling clean. It had a kitchenette as well. We received a warm welcome on arrival and on departure were given a list of things to see between Wanaka and Greymouth. It was really helpful on our travels. I would definitely stay here again.
A lovely motel that was clean, warm, quiet and comfortable. Great private deck off the room, with fantastic views of the landscape. Generous room size and very centrally located to the Wanaka township and within an easy walk of Restaurants and Bars. Would love to come back and stay again!
Great units, clean tidy and good value. Host is very helpful as well. Central to Wanaka town with most things within walking distance. Great views of the lake from the room with a creek running outside the units
Return visit to Brookvale Motel (and Wanaka) after 6 years. We enjoyed our stay just as much this time. The rooms are looking fresh, are immaculately clean and very cosy. Incredibly comfy beds and we loved the polished timber ceilings! Added to the coziness of our room for sure! Internet was fast and reliable, and it was great to be able to get a load of washing done and dried on our quick stopover. Location is quiet, yet only a few minutes walk to the lakefront where you will find all of the restaurants and bars. Mark and Karen are amazing hosts and know the meaning of true kiwi hospitality. Thank you!
