Great Place.....No Staff !!

Review of Edgewater Motel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 28 Dec 2022
This place is in a great location facing the lake and an easy walk to the shops bars and restaurants. Room was clean comfortable and well equipped with a gorgeous bathroom. Our only issue was that due to staff shortages there was nobody at reception at any time so we picked up our key in an envelope taped to the office door. This wasn't a particular problem until the wifi went down on the second day and there was nobody to report it to. We tried ringing the phone number provided but there was no answer. Not a major issue..but it took the gloss off what was otherwise a perfect stay.

This is a basic hotel and they were suffering from staff shortage. But saying that, I appreciated the small things they did offer like salt and pepper in their kitchenette as well as other little thoughtful things like paper toweling. So many places have a minimum of what is needed when one is travelling extensively, so this was a nice surprise. All in all, we had a very pleasant stay.

Room tip: Staff (owner?) was very helpful so when we found no linen had been supplied, this was fixed in one minute. If you need something, just ask.

Room was great. The kitchen had everything needed - pots, pans, dishcloths etc. Bed was comfy - bathroom was modern and the shower was excellent. Location was good too.

I was able to leave a bag at reception while I did the Kepler and was also able to check in early once I finished. Both were really appreciated.

We stayed in the room facing the lake, and it was an amazing view to wake up to every morning. Very clean property and the contactless check-in and out was great. Very close (5 min) walk to town centre (restaurants etc), and also to Real Journeys hub for doing tours etc. Will definitely be back as was a lovely place to stay.

Just stayed at Edgewater in the unit overlooking lake Te Anau. The view was awesome from both the lounge and bedroom. Unit was dated but spotlessly clean. It was only a 5 minute walk to the shops and restaurants. Great locality.
We will certainly be back to stay.

Recently refurbished one-bedroom unit. New bathroom and kitchen. All very clean. Great location, 5-minute walk to the main street and pickup location for tours. Across the road from the lake. Easy check in and check out. Would stay again.
