Greeting was polite but certainly not friendly or welcoming. In fact we could barely understand a word due to a strong accent. We read the reviews & although expected “dated” we were gutted. Once inside the room it was like going back 60 + years. The “covering” on the wall behind the bed cracking & lifting away. No headboard & one pillow each. Only a couple of light bulbs worked. Commercial soap pump by ancient yellow marble sink in bathroom & same in the shower, no other toiletries. No pictures anywhere, drab, dark paint, it felt more like doc cabin room than a nice motel room. The view from the concrete path outside the room was lovely. It was a massive disappointment. Would never recommend!!!

The view from our room was incredible. You could not get tired to looking at that. Just amazing. Short 10 minute walk to town. Parking is available and a bit tight but just go slow down the drive and you are all good. Flo was amazing, my husband left his hoodie in the cupboard when we left and she posted this to our home address for us. Service with a smile. The units have everything you need and were very comfortable. What a great location, fell in love with Wanaka and the lovely people. Thank you Flo for going the extra mile for us, we really appreciate it. Would definitely stay again.

One of the reasons I booked here was for the views and it did not disappoint. It definitely lives up to its name and has a fantastic view of the lake. I had a ground level room, which was spacious, the bed was comfortable and the kitchen was well furnished. I would note it is a little dated, but that didn’t bother me. The staff were friendly and helpful. The motel is a short walk (about 10/15 mins) from restaurants and shops but note it is an uphill walk on the way back.

Lakeview Motel is an older style motel with lovely views over Lake Wanaka. It was approx 10min walk into town. The rooms are old and tired and quite small but adequate for a one night stay, but wouldn't have wanted to stay longer. The bed was I think only a double and the linen was fine.
