Poor1.0 / 5
Terribly run down
While this hotel is in a very convenient location, it's incredibly uncomfortable. The hotel overall is VERY run down. I felt like I was at summer camp. The hallways smelled musty/bad, the room furnishings were worn, and in general, I felt grossed out staying there. To make matters worse, I slept horribly. The bed is saggy and unsupportive. (Seriously, my dog has a better bed.) You can also hear anyone who's walking around outside. Would never consider staying there again...

Fair2.0 / 5
Bad hotel, good location
The location (close to Lake Wanaka) is the only positive thing about this hotel. The room is very old and in need of upgrades. The front desk staff was very disinterested and unhelpful. Avoid this hotel if possible. Since Wanaka is such a small town, no hotel will be too far from the lake. This one isn't worth it.

Older hotel with outdated facilities in room but in the prime area for tourists as everything is within walking distance.

Excellent4.0 / 5
Great cleaning staff and pleasant helpful desk
My wife and I spend three nights and found that while the hotel was old,it was quiet the staff was great. We were within easy walking distance to Lake and restaurants. A kitchen, which we used one night, was available and included, as well as a room refrigerator. The balcony, with two chairs, overlooked a well maintained yard with picnic tables, as well as a partial view of town. A chair or two in the room would have been nice.
