Lakeside luxury ”

The Edgewater resort was gorgeous. The view over the lake was beautiful especially for a lovely early morning walk. The staff were very professional and helpful. Loved my stay there.

Hi Michelle, we are so pleased to hear you enjoyed a luxurious stay with us, and you had an excellent experience with our staff. The lakeside walking track is a beautiful place for a early morning walk, and it is quite literally steps from your hotel room door. Thank you for your lovely feedback, and we hope you come and stay again soon.

Amazing outdoor scenery”

Very close to That Wanaka Tree, you can walk down and lie on the lawn to sunbathe, and you can also see many people walking their dogs nearby. There are also many rabbits in the nearby bushes, making it a great place for a walk. The room facilities are simple and clean, with nothing particularly to picky about. The location by the lake is the biggest advantage of this hotel.

Beautifully located, enjoyable stay”

Brisbane, Australia - the Edgewater Hotel is a clean and well maintained hotel positioned right on the edge of Lake Wanaka. The location is second to none - prime lake front and close to town. The staff and service were also highly commendable and very enthusiastic. Some things I think other travellers should know: * walls can tend to be paper thin (we could easily hear conversations in the room next door) * WiFi is free, but patchy. All our devices had issues maintaining a connection and they constantly dropped out. WiFi was also slow relative to other offerings we experienced * Room only has heating, no cooling. Not an issue in winter, but room can get stuffy during hot summer days Would I stay here again? Probably - but only at the right price.

Cosy place by the lake”

The hotel room we had was cosy, clean and had a fantastic view of Lake Wanaka. We loved the place so much that we extended our stay in their Suite rooms which we loved even more! The only downside about our stay was the lack of wifi and weak wifi signal at times! We wished we had more and better wifi to upload and share our wonderful stay at Edgewater with our friends and family back home!
