Good wifi. Location is good which is very convenient for travelling in Wanaka. Clean in bathroom. Just being noise at night due to the pub downstairs. So far I can sleep well at all. As it may not be a season, there are not lots of people. It is a good choice to live in which the price is cheap with value compared to living in summer. Staff is so nice which they help you to solve your problem which I am appreciated.
