The Moorings is a very nice motel, impeccably clean and tidy and in a perfect location across from the lake with mountains behind. The host is very friendly and helpful.

We received a very warm welcome from Peter on our arrival. He is a good source of information for the local area and recommended a super half day walk that we did- the Rob Roy glacier walk. We stayed for two nights and I wish we could have stayed longer to explore the area some more, although with Peter's help we definitely made the most of our short visit.
The Moorings is in a super location- just a couple of minutes walk from town and with a wonderful view over the lake. The room was very clean and spacious with everything we needed. The bed was large and comfortable, there was a sofa as well as a table bench with two chairs that you could sit at and eat, and also a table and chairs on the balcony overlooking the lake. The kitchen was well equipped, although we only used the kettle and fridge. Tea/ coffee/ hot chocolate/ sugar/ biscuits/ milk were all provided. The wifi connection was excellent. We found it very good value for money considering its super location, and will definitely return here on a future trip.

Very clean, comfortable and really well equipped unit which delivered us more than we expected. Lovely friendly staff, excellent customer service, we were warmly welcomed and nothing was too much trouble for them. They even gave us directions to a hike we wanted to go on. There was a hotplate, microwave, TV, tea/coffee making facilities, well equipped kitchen utensils, laundry etc. Great view over the lake and it was central to everything, The wifi was great (no problems streaming from the internet) and free of charge. A voucher system but we were still using the same voucher the next day although they gave us a back up one just in case which we never had to use. The only problem was that we only booked the one night and we would have loved to stay for longer. Wanaka has so much to offer. Definitely will stay there again when next in Wanaka but longer next time.

Room Tip: We stayed upstairs and in unit 12.

Thanks for your very positive review. The Moorings has a great reputation for being clean, comfortable and welcoming. We are new to the business and are doing our best to keep it up. We have recently upgraded our WIFI so nice to hear it works well. We would love to have you stay another time.

We booked the 2 bedroom apartment and it was excellent for my family of 4. There's a bed room upstairs with a bathroom and another bedroom room downstairs with a bathroom.

There's even a gas BBQ pit outside the deck area with outdoor sitting.

The location is great and it's a 3 minutes walk to the main town. The lake is just across the road.

The apartment is very clean and the service was great.

My partner and I stayed at the Moorings for 3 nights in November 2016. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The Moorings is central, easy walking distance to everything in town, with great views across the lake.

The room was spacious, and the bed comfortable. There is a fridge, hotplate and cooking implements (pots/pans/plates/knives), TV and lounge. Kitchen was provided with fresh milk, biscuits and tea/coffee/hot chocolate.
The decor is perhaps a little dated, but impeccably presented and clean.
The large balcony has two chairs and a small table, and we enjoyed many sunny afternoons drinking some great NZ wine and watching the world go by.

Peter was incredibly helpful and friendly. Keep a lookout for Claude Monet, the resident cat, who likes a pat.

There was also free wifi, which we found was the exception, rather than the rule in NZ.

Wanaka was our favourite place in NZ, and the Moorings was the perfect accommodation to compliment.

Room Tip: Upstairs studio unit, on the outside of the building was the best. Large balcony with great views.

Wow, thanks for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review. Now that summer is arriving it certainly is nice to sit on the balcony and watch the sun go down. Thanks also for noticing the care our staff take when presenting The Moorings - it is good to get positive feedback. Best regards.
