I found the whole event ran very smoothly. The Edgewater staff were great and so obliging.For me the venue is perfect as we didn’t have to leave to have lunch and it was all ready for us downstairs. Parking was easy and the morning and afternoon teas were great. Everyone loved the ‘home baked’ biscuits especially when they were straight out of the oven on the second day!  I was very pleased and I would be happy to come back again next year.

First National Conference - April 2018

I am pleased to say we were really happy with the conference facilities, the Summit Room and the Alcove were great. The staff were amazing and we were really well looked after by your team there. The catering was fantastic and everyone enjoyed the working lunches. We loved our one and half working days at Edgewater and would definitely use your conference facilities again. Many thanks to you and the team.

Pivot Remesys Planning Meeting - April 2018

Edgewater, thanks so much for having us, we had a very successful night and the room was just perfect. The food was exactly on time (and delicious) and the beverage service was made so easy. We usually host a number of these sorts of information nights a year so we will definitely be looking at coming back to use the venue again in the future. Gina Barnett.

Flight Centre Wanaka - February 2018

We had a very successful and enjoyable day at the Edgewater Hotel.The room was ideal, the equipment all worked and was perfect. The morning tea was lovely and our lunches were really enjoyable. It was nice to have the break in the Wineglass restaurant and to see the beautiful lake. We will be back again!

Batchelor McDougall Consulting - February 2018

Thank you to Ellita and Jo for fabulous assistance in the organization pre-conference. You were hospitable with our late arrival and change in food requirement times, (which was delicious) and the AV setup was perfect,  Henry was efficient and the handover for the 4pm shift to Leon was smooth. Thereafter Leon and his assistant limited conference interruption which was very much appreciated. Highly recommended.

Dominion Construction - February 2018

Thank you for letting Christchurch Airport host our board meeting and cocktail evening at your hotel this past Monday. Your staff were extremely helpful and we are really thrilled with how it all went. Plus, your property is beautifully located! We really enjoyed working with you on this and look forward to working with you again in the future.

Christchurch International Airport - Board Meeting & Cocktail Function - May 2017

Big thanks to the team at Edgewater for your help and hard work at Breca Wanaka 2017.  The event exceeded my expectations on all levels. There were amazing performances from all the teams involved, and it was fantastic to see them met with such warmth and generosity at the finish. We’ve had excellent feedback from the athletes and their supporters, and this is in no small part due to the contribution of your team. Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved, and I look forward to working together again in 2018.

Breca Wanaka - March 2017

All of it (feedback) has been really positive. We had a fantastic time at Edgewater and want to thank you and your staff for making it all work so easily, both in the preparation and while we were there. The rooms were excellent  and so were all the meals and the complimentary nibbles but definitely the highlight was the staff. Everyone was so friendly, the front desk staff were amazing and also helped by doing the extra bits and pieces we needed. Thank you again and if you need anything more specific please let us know. We move our conference location every year so it will be a while before we are back in Wanaka but we would definitely come again and would have no hesitation recommending you.    Jenny Dent - Clorox New Zealand

SARNZ Conference - August 2016

Dairy Holdings Limited had the privilege of being able to hold its annual conference at the Edgewater Hotel on 26 June 2015 to 28 June 2015. Our conference involved two days of presentations in the hotel’s conference facilities with up to 185 conference attendees. Throughout the two days, all meals and morning and afternoon teas were provided by the Edgewater Hotel.  It has become increasingly difficult for an organisation the size of Dairy Holdings Limited to be able to hold its annual conference within one venue that can provide the conference facilities to meet our catering and accommodation requirements. The Edgewater Hotel facilities were ideal in this regards and we found the staff and management pleasant, helpful and always willing to please.  We would have no hesitations in going back to the Edgewater Hotel in future.  Colin Glass, Chief Executive.
