Disappointing they have a prime site. The motel was clean but facilities poor and outdated. Only 2 tv channels why? No mirrors for extra use for 4 people. Needs double glazing. Need extra blankets for cold nights

I am sorry you did not enjoy the smart TV which can supply many viewing options. Our beds have a woollen duvet and a quilt as well as heatpump heating. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip.

We stayed there on the way back from our south island trip for one night only. Received an upgrade to a one bedroom unit. When we arrived nobody was there, so we found the check-in info at the door to the office. Actually we never saw anybody there, no manager, staff or other guests. The unit was clean and tidy, however a bit dated

Great place to stay, the unit had everything we needed including an ample kitchenette which had a full oven with 4 element hob and a good amount of worktop for preparing food. The shower had great pressure. The unit was very clean and it’s in a great location only a minutes walk to the shops and restaurants. Located directly across from a large grassed reserve with skate park which our children could walk across to by themselves and across the reserve was the lake. Pip the owner was lovely and was happy to provide ideas for activities in the local area. Would happily stay there again.

+ Amazing view from the room + walkable to restaurants and lakeshore and the famous wanaka tree. + Room had small kitchenette, living and dining areas. + Parking right next to the room . Room was clean but had a smell of an old room - Really old carpet and very bad for anybody with allergies

Just as good as the photos....lovely place to stay looking out over the lake! Location is perfect for walking to town and the smorgasbord of restaurants, bars and cafes available but your motel kitchen is well set up too.....perfect for whipping up a meal if you have the time. The larger sized freezer of the room frig was good for transporting our foods for the onward Glenorchy part of our trip. Great wifi, the bed was extremely comfortable bed and the shower was good as well. Pip was welcoming and helpful....highly recommend you stay here😊
