Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Very accommodating and friendly host. We were on two motorcycles and he kindly let us have the front unit with hard standing parking. He pointed out places of interest and things to do in the area. The unit was clean and tidy with plenty of space. Comfortable bed, shower over the bath but great pressure.

My wife and I stayed at the Manuka Crescent Motel and really enjoyed our stay there. Mark, the owner, made us feel welcome and provided us with information about the area. Thank you Mark; we hope to return before leaving the South Island.

Last minute stay and chap who ran the place could not have been more helpful with allowing an early check in, storing bags whilst we overnight hiked and generally being very friendly even whilst short staffed. About a 20 min walk to town along the lake which is lovely.

We were greeted by mark who was friendly and welcoming . He gave us lots of information about things to do and where to go. The unit was clean and large. It had an air conditioning unit in the lounge, which we did not have to use. It was very light and airy with large windows which allowed a lot of air in to cool the rooms if necessary. Good range of kitchen utensils and cooking equipment Shower was powerful and clean. The bed was very comfortable Free parking was a bonus It takes about 25 mins to walk into town , where there are large number of restaurants or a 5 minute drive with loads of parking , although we were there over a weekend so the parking was restricted as Wanaka was very busy

This is a great Motel to stay at in Wanaka. Mark the owner was really helpful and accommodating. The unit was roomy and clean and had everything I needed for a really relaxing stay. During the day through the hottest part of the day it was a great place to relax in the cool of the room and reset for more hiking in the later afternoons. It's close to town and supermarket as well as all the good restaurants on the shore front. I'm definitely keen to visit again!

Travelocity said I needed to contact Manuka to request a refund. Manuka said I should contact Travelocity. A total run around and HORRIBLE customer service on both ends. Avoid Manuka and definitely AVOID TRAVELOCITY!!!!

After checking in the lovely lady helped us with our luggage into our unit which was very clean and comfortable with everything we needed. Although not close to town was a short drive away for shopping eating and scenic attractions.

Stayed here in January 2020 for a night. The room was clean and spacious. Good amenities in the room and bathroom. Staff was very helpful. I asked for late checkout and they agreed without any charges. The room had kitchenette with microwave and hob, plus utensils. The room did not have aircon so it was kinda hot as It’s summer in NZ. But rest was all good. The only thing I found bit concerning is -they take down your credit card (for security) details and write it on your reg card, not sure how safe this is.

Would not recommend staying here. Firstly the shower pressure was very very poor and you honestly can’t even wash all the soap off your body, it’s ridiculous. There were also cracks in the shower wall and when you flush the toilet the water would go all over the seat. Our back sliding door wasn’t on its hinges properly so when we tried to open it it almost fell off. Quite dangerous and we could have at least been warned or told not to open it. The only upside was that the receptionist was quite friendly and there is a guest laundry available to use.

Stayed a night. This motel is away from CBD and requires car to get to and from town. Room was spacious. Bed was ok. Motel did not have an inviting feel. Just a basic room. Probably look for somewhere closer to town
