Fabulous hotel on lakeside.

Review of Edgewater
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 Apr 2024via mobile
An absolutely fabulous 8 day stay at Edgewater Hotel. From the moment we arrived until we left the wonderful staff couldn’t have been more attentive. Would like to particularly mention George the concierge who organized an epic trip to Milford Sound for us, plus a sunset cruise on Lake Wānaka. Thank you George! Also Sam and Alex on reception.
Our room 109 was just perfect. Great views of the lake, very comfortable bed and good kitchen and bathroom. Toiletries were high quality, and the addition of a washer/dryer a bonus.
We ate at the restaurant a couple of times and were delighted with the quality and variety of the food served. The scones are just incredible!
To sum up a great stay at an amazing lakeside hotel and we would love to return one day.

The view of the lake, in room washer/dryer, full kitchen, clean spacious seating area, comfortable bed and awesome customer service made this the best hotel on our New Zealand journey. Highly recommend.

Appreciate there is a programme of upgrading underway, but we stayed in one of the unrefurbished rooms. The noise from the upstairs guests was intrusive, the shower over the bath was under the stairs so tricky to stand up if you are tall and the bath itself was very small. The washer/dryer was tricky to use and the iron was completely ineffective. No furniture on the terrace, so unable to sit outside, unless you sat on a little bench to the side. The location is nice - right by the lake and the famous Wanaka Tree. Pleasant walk to the town centre, but overall, we were disappointed considering the hotel is listed as a 4* relaxing haven.

Room tip: Make sure you get a re-furbished room!

The Edgewater location is fantastic! Right on the water and many rooms have beautiful lake views. If not the lawn/garden views are gorgeous. So green! Rental bikes are available. Very comfortable rooms and nice dining area. We've stayed there twice now and will again when we return to Wanaka.

We only stayed here for a couple nights, but we’re super impressed with everything. The rooms are large with plenty of space and are very clean. The town is a short walk away, along the beach, where there are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops!!

Amazing room with heavenly views of the mountains and lake. Room 109 was exceptional. Highly recommended this property. 2 nights is enough time in wanaka as not much to do activity wise but amazing for relaxation. I would go back again to the same resort.
