Travellers' Choice
Edgewater lies right at the water’s edge of Lake Wanaka. It is the perfect destination for you to experience all that Central Otago’s seasons have to offer. Our long, hot summers fade slowly into beautiful autumn colours, before the clear mountain air promises snow and crisp winter days. As the snowfalls melt, spring returns with its lush, bright greens. At Edgewater we have genuine local knowledge that complements our inviting accommodation and enticing seasonal menu. Since Covid 19 has swept the world, we stringently follow NZ Government directives to be welcome guests safely. We are fortunate to be located within a park-like setting and we have no lifts. We can unlock the very best Wanaka experiences, tailored for you. Edgewater is a four star Qualmark graded property situated on the edge of Lake Wanaka. Come and touch the seasons at Edgewater.

Bathroom was outdated, didn’t know it was a shower and bath in one, wouldn’t of booked this place if I had known. Limited car parking for all the guests, definitely needs more parking. We were in a room which shared a very thin wall and door which was closed off in the room with next door and a tiny balcony. Probably would of preferred to stay closer to town.

Covid has wrecked havoc on this business. It used to be an absolute paradise. This has all changed. There is a restaurant on site but you have to eat in your room (and pay for the room service charge). The service is extremely slow (40 minutes in an empty bar to get a mulled wine). No housekeeping which is fine but make sure you don't run out of anything because everything is charged as an extra!

Nice and spacious room. Kitchen was small but fine for us. Excellent staff in the reception and restaurant. We also booked a tennis lesson and the coach was fantastic. The location was fine as well. It took us maybe around 15 minutes to walk to the center with the kids.

We had 5 nights here on a family ski holiday. Found the service to be friendly and helpful despite the usual COVID challenges. Unit was very clean and warm. Outlook is stunning, food is good and we loved the spa after skiing. We will be back!

This has become an annual pilgrimage for us and our friends. A great place to socialise; comfortable units with awesome views. Clean, well stocked, and friendly staff. Great restaurant, bar and cosy lounge with a fire to enjoy a mulled wine or two. The location is great for lovely walks but about 15 minutes into town by foot. They need more staff but the staff that are there are fabulous. Looking forward to next year already!

Warm and pleasant hotel : well placed, absolutely marvelous view from the Lake rooms. Very pleasant dinner on site. Offers suitable for families: rooms with washing machines, diligent welcome for kids, children's gifts at arrival, playground in the garden.... A wonderful stay - this hotel deserves to stop there for several nights.

We were on our way to the west coast when bad weather stopped us in our tracks in Wanaka. But what a lovely place and hotel to be marooned! We were not disappointed. I think we had the best room in the place 111 112 overlooking the lake with 180 views and we relaxed in the heated spa looking at the rainy snowy view of lake to wake to a fantastic buffet breakfast.

Small room, well presented ground-level room with lake views. Basic, clean bathroom with decent SHUB. Room had black out curtains and combined with peaceful lakeside property meant a quiet night sleep to be had. If you happy with a decent 20min lake front to have a break from your hire car - then the location is not a problem!

We spent six nights in a Lake View one bedroom apartment and it was an amazing place for our latest holiday. The position of the apartment was perfect with a beautiful lawn from the apartment down to lakeside and the Resort is an easy 15 minute walk [or 5 minute drive] to Wanaka Township.
