Date of booking: 18 Jan 2012.  Good quality, reasonable price
We were absolutely satisfied about the kindliness of staff, the cleanliness of room and facilities, the food was good but not outstanding. Wine list could be more sophisticated, the breakfast buffet unfortunately is not more than medium range level. Over all, good choice for 1 or 2 nights, but we wouldn't spend a whole week there.


Date of booking: 16 Jan 2012. Fantastic
it was awesome..i luv much fun and it’s a beautiful stay...


Date of booking: 10 Jan 2012.Great Outlook and Position, facilities average though
No Mini bar, no real coffee, Had to pay for Internet which is really archaic, room overpriced at $230 but outlook fantastic

Edgewater Response: Dear Lawrence, we appreciated you took the time to provide us with your feedback.  You are right, the location is outstanding.  Your hotel room accommodation does include Douwe Egberts Instant Granulated, decafe coffee and a range of teas. Our team in the Wineglass cafe would have been very happy to have provided you with a barista coffee.    

Mini bars aren't provided in room but we would have been happy to provide one for you (there were details in the compendium about this or our reception team would have assisted your query).    

We regularly review internet hotel charges and aim to provide guests with competitively priced access.  Most in our review do make a charge for internet. It is a shame we didn't meet your expectations on this occasion.


Date of booking: 18 Jan 2012.A straight forward process.
Really enjoyed our stay at the Edgewater and would stay there again. Comfortable well sized rooms and kitchen. reception staff very welcoming and helpful.


Date of booking: 18 Jan 2012. Fantastic Wanaka
As honeymooners, we enjoyed travelling NZ.
Edgewater is a beautiful lake facing destination. Courteous friendly staff. I would advise the Hotel to provide better toiletries to their guests since they offer star accommodation and guests of this calibre do expect the same. Also the food menu for vegetarians need drastic improvement, catering better to the travellers of the subcontinent.

Overall Rating:
We arrived close to midnight. We were still warmly welcomed by the very friendly receptionist. The rooms arrangement was very considerate for our two family group. Our "room with lake view" request was also met. Everyone in our group has an excellent experience although just for one night stay.

Stayed here for one night during my visit to Wanaka.  Very nice hotel with the best view.  (Via Trip Advisor)


Guest Reviewed: 31 August 2011

The hotel is located in the very best area of Wanaka, being right on the lakefront and only a short walk via the walkway to town, in fact we left the car in the car park most of the time.  Read more via Trip Advisor.  


Guest Stayed: 1 September 2011. Great room great friendy staff
Thank you to your reservations manager for allowing us to book room 711/712 and for including the buffet breakfast for the four of us. Truly wonderful stay.  What an amazing view that room has and with young children being near the small waterfall and the ducks was magnificent.  


Guest Stayed: 26 Aug 2011.Excellent
We asked to be close to the 'Duck Pond" and it happened. The room had already been made up for extra guests and was re organised as soon as they realised. We went in for late lunch and it wasn't an issue. Big vote of thanks to the reservations manager and the attitude of housekeeping staff as it was excellent. Thanks for the opportunity to provide our comments.


Guest Stayed : 14 Aug 2011.Beautiful location and rooms, great food
Loved the hotel would stay again. We had a one bedroom apartment which was large, comfortable and well appointed and had a fantastic view of the lake. The restaurant way exceeded expectations - once we tried it, we only ever eaten in. Service was friendly and responsive. Great place to stay!


Guest Stayed: 15 Jul 2011.Another EXCELLENT experience
For the third year in a row we had a wondeful time. The location mirrors the quality of the venue along with the staff. A special mention to the staff in the bar and at reception for the great customer service.
