Cons: Very expensive for the one night compared to everywhere else we stayed. We ate out in Wanaka in the evening which was great but breakfast at the Lodge was disappointing especially for the price. Noisy washing up and cooking all in the same room as the tables and cooked food was quite poor.
7.5 Good
Pros: Nices views and near the village/restaurants.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great stay, good breakfast, awsome helpfull staff they even helped me wash/dry all my clothes before my departure! & central location: )
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Nice staff, cleanliness, they offered us a room with a kingsize instead of the room with two single beds that I originally booked which was nice! Liked the wooden style of the cottage in the garden that they gave us.
Cons: We both didn’t sleep well. The beds were so soft I woke up every time my partner moved while sleeping. The fridge was loud as well. An aircon or fan would have been nice as it was very hot during our stay. Should be alright when it is 20 degrees though.
5.4 Okay
Cons: The description of what was included was not very clear. The hotel stated they had a complementary breakfast but it was not included with our hotel room. Noises from other rooms and the street outside could be heard clearly. Very pricey for the size. Big spider webs on the ceiling.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Very clean and comfortable. The location is really good and walking distance to pretty much everywhere we went. The breakfast was really good, they cooked some delicious scrambled eggs w/ bacon and toast, not to mention a great fruit salad with yogurt!
Cons: We were there for just a night and we didn't have any trouble.
6.7 Good
Cons: Traffic noise at 5 AM

Cons: Internet didn't work on all our devices/wasn't consistent. We didn't inform staff because and used our own data instead, so it's possible there's a solution we just didn't find out about. This was really the only issue.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Reception greeting was very welcoming and we got to meet the two affectionate cats that guard the property. Very informative introduction with plenty of information on where to go and what to do. The room we ended up in had fantastic views over Lake Wanaka and we could slowly watch the water rising (much to the locals demise....).
Cons: I think this place was well above our expectations for the price point we got it at. I mean, no ones ever gonna say no to things being cheaper, but realistically this was brilliant.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Good location to go the downtown! Good lake view~!
Cons: Kind of an old accommodation, so little smelly but it was not a problem during staying~!
9.0 Excellent
Pros: There are many things I like about this hotel - the size of the room, the equipment provided, etc, but the #1 on the list must be the lady at the reception. I'm not sure if she's the owner or a staff, but she's very friendly and welcoming.
Cons: The hotel has 2 wifi networks - the high speed one and the regular one. There is only 1 login per room for the high speed wifi and the other wifi didn't really work when we were there.
