Quiet and peaceful, but easy short walk to town. Lovely host, excellent value in pricey Wanaka. A small room, but good for a couple of nights. Clean and tidy, a big lounge, would be great if you wanted to get a few friends together.

6/10 Good

Dated, not really suitable for a location to do business due to lack of wifi, no ironing board and quite dated, looks like an old b&b converted to motel.

Clean, comfortable bed. Friendly and helpful. Loved the stream running next to the lodge and surrounding street. We were welcomed by a Duck or two and woke to a big rabbit running up the hill.
