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.

The motel was centrally located to almost anything that you would want in Wānaka. It is within blocks of the lake side, restaurants, shopping, and grocery store. The one bedroom apartment was very spacious and had two additional beds which were very comfortable. The full kitchen had a stove, refrigerator and freezer and all the supplies you would need. The bathroom had a jacuzzi bathtub and shower, along with a washer and dryer right in the apartment. The apartment had a spacious living room, television, and free Netflix. The outdoor patio had amazing views of the mountains and a stream right below you and the staff were friendly and accommodating. Wishing we could have stayed longer.

We were looking for a good 2 bedroom self catering cottage or apartment and were pretty staggered by the high prices for a five day stay in early March 2024. Eventually we found the Clearbrook Motel online and were pleased to snap up a two bedroom apartment because it had everything we wanted and offered more bang for our buck than alternatives we'd seen elsewhere. Having our own clothes washer and dryer was also very welcome. Price was not cheap but for this town it was very good value for money. Location is excellent with shops, restaurants and lake within 100 - 200 metres and we had a lovely view from our living room over a babbling brook and even snow capped mountains. Reception staff and cleaning staff were extremely nice, respectful and helpful.

We were unfortunately a little disappointed with our stay in the Clearbrook Motel. The motel itself overlooks a little stream with a lawned area, which is quite nice, but the walls in the room are very thin, so we had to listen to the children of other guests running up and down etc on the lawns in front of our room until quite late at night. The room itself needed a bit of a decor update - the sofas were ripped and everything felt like it could do with a bit of a lift. When we first arrived, the room was not ready until about an hour after allowable checkin (the gentleman at the desk was flustered and explained they were short staffed that day, and I think he was left with both the cleaning and reception at the same time). When we first walked in we were hit with a real lemon bleach smell, which stayed with us for the entire time we were there (and I think probably effected our experience as a result). The bedroom is quite hot as well, so we didn't get a good sleep. The room comes equipped with a full kitchen, and there is a washing machine in the bathroom wet area, which we didn't use, but would be helpful. The location is good, and it's easy to access the main streets of Wanaka from the motel (it's just around the corner from the WONDERFUL Cinema Paradiso, which we thoroughly enjoyed) , and we strolled down through the streets to the main lake. I think we would perhaps give another place a try next time.

The motel is very well located for the town. The gardens are well maintained and are very attractive with the stream running along the edge. We received a friendly welcome on arrival. We booked a ground floor studio with river view. There was a lovely outlook onto the lawn and stream, and we could sit out on our patio (chairs and table) in the sun listening to the water. There were a couple of bbqs and picnic tables. Our room had a comfortable bed, sofa and dining table and chairs. We only stayed one night, but the room was really well equipped for a longer stay, with plenty of storage. The kitchen had a proper cooker, as well as a good sized fridge, microwave and even a dishwasher. There was also a washing machine and dryer in the room, with washing powder provided. It was great to have a tv with sky and Netflix! The provided toiletries were nice. It was more of a wet room than a normal bathroom. I’m not sure if all rooms are like that, or if ours was an accessible room. We walked into town, wandered around the shops, and ate at the Lake Bar. Overall a lovely motel and it’s a shame we couldn’t stay longer.

After five years in a row, this was my first stay at Clearbrook since pre-Covid, four years ago. It is most pleasing to report that some things don’t change. Despite personal changes, the service remains outstanding. Clearbrook remains clean and quiet, and with everything provided. The spa is delightful after a hard day on the slopes. Lauren and her team provide high quality service with a genuine attitude of “what can we do to make your trip better or more comfortable?” I am already looking forward to next year’s visit.

Excellent size of the room, kitchen, living room and bathroom. Everything so very well cleaned and neat. When you find places cleaned like this is because they care about your health and staying. Amazing location, many options of restaurants, shops and groceries stores. We had a problem thinking that my husband's mobile was stollen from the room until we realize that it had dropped from his pocket on the street and someone, very nice local, took it to the police station. Although, before that, the nice desk clerk named Kori gave us all the attention to find out what really happened. My husband wasn't sure if he had left the mobile in the room or someone got into the room because we had forgotten to lock the balcony door. We would like to apologize for the confusion and we really appreciate Kori's help after his working hours. thank you very much.

Fantastic location - short walk to town and the lake. The little brook out the back was so pretty! Negatives - there was rarely anyone at the desk due to staff shortages, and it's a little dated. Also, if anyone is enjoying the back yard (As well they should!) they are looking right at you if you are on the bottom floor. Positives - Clean, Close to everything, great shower pressure - and the in unit laundry units! We used the heck out of that thing. Would absolutely stay here again.

A wonderful find in Wanaka! Really enjoyed staying at this motel. Great location with a short walk to the local cafes, restaurants and of course the beautiful lake. Well appointed apartment with everything you need. Lovely balcony to sit on looking across to the lake while listening to the fast running brook at the front of the motel. We were only sorry we couldn't stay longer.

This is a great spot in wanaka. We had a ground floor apartment that opened up into the patio and grass area. There are bbqs if you want to use them. Close to town which was great and around the corner from the food truck area. Had everything we needed including washer and drier in the room.
