    • Group of friends

      Friendly and helpful staff. Best location.

      Decor very dated but ok for the cheaper price and a weekend away.

    • Single

      Located in centre of town and walking distance to restaurants and minimarket. Helpful and friendly staff. Room is clean.

      Need to improve on the security of the back entrance of this hotel. Didn't feel safe during my stay there.

    • Couple

      Location is good and near Lake

      Much noize from fantasy festival

    • Older travelers

      Great location and reasonable price.

      Very noisey party in room somewhere close by. Could hear the next room through walls.

    • Older travelers

      Hotel is in need of a re-vamp. Looks very old fashioned and tired, TV's are old, bed not too comfy and it was very noisy as the fridge kept us awake throughout the night.

    • Older travelers

      Location was great, staff were very friendly. The guest kitchen was very handy as was the guest laundry.

    • Group of friends

      The location is great, good walking distance to all the local facilities. This is the second time that we have stayed here. I spent a little extra for the room and it was worth it. The bathroom and bedroom were larger than the cheaper ones it also had a balcony the other plus side was that you didn't have the constant drone of the refrigerators from the building next door.

      It would have been nice to have chairs on the balcony so you could sit out in the sun in the evening. The sliding door to the balcony could do with being made to run smoothly on its runners.

    • Couple

      The location is good to walk to the Lake.

      We asked for a twin room and got a room with bunk beds and an un made up double bed. The room had dead squashed flies over the wall and ceiling. The room was tired at best.

    • Older travelers

      The view was lovely and the room was very clean, although small

      We were on the first floor with no lift and it was a long way to carry luggage. Semi detached kitchen was on ground floor so lots of climbing up and down stairs

    • Older travelers

      The room was wonderfully furnished and had a large sliding door that opened out onto our own private balcony which had a view of the lake.

    • Couple

      Convenience and Location

      There were half used drinks in the fridge from previous guests.

    • Older travelers

      The receptionist was brilliant with knowledge & helpful.The waitress in restaurant also excellent.

    • Older travelers

      Easy access nice and quite

      Overall great

    • Family with children

      Good location

      Getting on a little - needs an upgrade

    • Couple

      Good location, handy to walk to Wanaka town & lake. Comfortable stay with good facilities including a shared kitchen, laundry and cafe. Reasonable price.
