We had an upstairs room with a balcony overlooking Lake Wanaka which was perfect for our 2 night stay The room was clean, spacious and location excellent within walking of centre of town and restarants and a four square nearby. Staff all friendly and helpful. Would certainly recommend the Moorings.

I organized a group of 19 men to stay 6 nights at the Moorings and everything about it was excellent. Peter (the owner) was very obliging and he loaned us his car to go the supermarket. As if that was not enough one day we returned to find trifles in our room - made by the night manager (Darren McKay) - to his grandmother's recipe! The kindness and hospitality was way beyond normal and much appreciated. Our accommodation was good value and Peter was negotiable for a group of 19 of 6 night. I certainty recommend the moorings.

We had a really enjoyable stay here. The Manager was extremely friendly, very clean and tidy room with a little kitchenette. Great view of the lake. Very close to everything. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the Manager was so appreciative of us staying there as all businesses are finding it hard.
