Pros: An absolute slice of heaven- so peaceful, serene and relaxing. Steven and Ann-Marie are such beautiful, warm and welcoming hosts who have put their entire heart and soul in to making the guest experience nothing short of perfect. The home is absolutely gorgeous with beautiful leather couches, a cosy fire place, heaps of outdoor places to sit and enjoy and the dining space is amazing too! The breakfast is next level incredible, with the most incredible spread I think we have ever seen! From healthy muesli options, fruit platters, breads, croissants, a variety of spreads, yoghurts and milk choices, cheeses, meats and more! Ann- Marie will also offer a cooked plate too and man does she make the best poached eggs! Not to mention her delicious baked treaties she pops on the end of the dining table alongside a plate of fruit, to help yourself to throughout your stay. The coffee machine is yours to use whenever you wish and a large option of different teas - so good! The rooms are super spacious with beautiful glass doors that open out to a little private patio overlooking the mountains and grass area, the beds are so plush and cosy, beautiful bathroom and lovely complimentary toiletries. Absolutely nothing has been spared at Wanaka Haven - a truly dreamy, relaxing and wonderful experience. Thank you so much Ann-Marie and Steven, it was everything we had hoped for and more! Cannot wait to come back :)

I could tell the owners took pride in their place and we enjoyed every minute of our stay.

There was a small hand basin with no space to put toiletries.

Pros: Susie, one of the managers was wonderful as were both of the chefs. We chose not to use housekeeping as we were in and out all day but they were also very nice. Great breakfast on the days Suzie was there as we could have special orders.
Cons: The room was VERY small. Hard to move around. For that price we expected more. No TV in the room. Asked if I could do a load of laundry but was never told if would be $25. Stayed all over NZ and NEVER dealt with a laundry fee. Housekeeping said they told my husband but they hadn't. Saw the sign AFTER clothes were in the wash. Dryer did not work so hung the clothes all over our bathroom. I questioned the charge but the new owner wouldn't budge or talk to me. I had seen him but over the three days he never introduced himself or was at all welcoming. We were given NO MAP and google maps took us to the wrong place. Spent an hour trying to find it. Please add written directions to your communication. Be aware they do not take Am Ex.

Cons: We booked the place because we wanted to use its heated pool, but to our disappointment, it wasn’t available for our use at that point - the host explained that they just changed the water hence it’s not hot enough for use...

7.9 Good
Pros: This lodge was cosy and comfortable. The only thing I'd say is that the photos misrepresented the room and the location. This is not necessarily the fault of the lodge, but based on the photos we were expecting a quite sumptuous room with a view of the lake. The reality is that the lodge is in the centre of town (well away from the lake) and our room - whilst very cosy - wasn't quite the luxurious one we'd expected based on the photos. Still, it was a very pleasant stay.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: wonderful friendly staff/owners make you feel at home, treat you like honored guests, really outstanding service best full breakfasts ever! delicious! 24 hour availability of tea, coffee, hot chocolate was delightful cake in afternoons was scrumptious Garden hot tub- wanted to use it didn’t have time but so glad it was there Book shelf exchange in cosy library sitting room free Wifi location perfect and very near to pubs and cafés, shopping, kayaking, lake front, easy drive to good hiking we made an error overbooking reservation and there was a misunderstanding (our fault) and the owners graciously sorted it out when we arrived without charging us. property and grounds were lovely, plantings, private
Cons: Bed not comfortable for my back—mattress too soft/uneven pillows also not comfortable—hard/very firm and too large I have low back chronic pain so for someone else these issues might not be a problem. minor things: room very small (but no problem because sitting areas outside of room were so lovely) bathroom commode appeared dirty (but no problem—it was clean just so old it looked soiled but wasn’t)

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The motel had everything we needed and, as it had two large beds in separate sleeping areas , it was perfect for my adult son and I. The balcony had a great view and it was only a short walk down into town. The pillows were great and we had a comfy sleep.The unit was clean, spacious (we had a one bedroom unit), warm and sunny.
Cons: There is a lot of road noise but with the windows shut you can't really notice it. Bigger towels would have been nice as they barely went around me (but I probably need to lose weight!). The walk back up the steep stairs to the property is a bit hard for those with mobility issues or if you are not very fit so maybe worth redoing those so they are easier and safer to use.
