Room with a view
Quiet with a beautiful view. Restaurant cooked good food. What's not to like.

We had 5 people in the family suite. There is a big bed downstairs (queen/king?) and a loft with a double bed and a single bed. The bathroom has been remodeled and was great. There is some exterior that is a bit weathered but it is a harsh environment. The location is great we had a fabulous view. The rocky beach and lakefront are a nice hike. The restaurant was ok. They were kind and lent us a toaster so we could make our own breakfast. We only stayed one night but could have stayed more. Great spot and much better than anything I could find in Wanaka.

Stunning views!
We really enjoyed the one night we spent in this hotel. The room was spacious and the scenery was incredible. We loved the patio and view of the lake. The parking immediately outside the room door was very convenient. We were there in October when it is still pretty cold out and our room was uncomfortably cold. It took a long time for the small wall heater (which was off when we arrived) to bring any warmth to the room. The bed does have electric blankets, which helped. Make sure to have cozy clothing if you are going to be in the room for much time. The check in and restaurant staff were very friendly and engaging, though the food wasn't great. Make time for dinner in Wanaka if you are heading this way.

Awesome views over a beautiful lake.
Great place to stay. You couldn't get a better view of the lake with the mountains. The room is 2 levels with 4 beds. Had a nice deck with chairs. The restaurant was excellent! Nice big fireplace. Great food and service. We went to the puzzle attraction in Wanaka. I enjoyed it almost as much as my 16 year old. It was nice being out of the busier town of Wanaka.
