10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing staff very clean and peascful
10.0 Excellent
Pros: A near-impeccable place of accommodation. Located just a 2 minute drive or 5 minute walk from the edge of the town centre (which itself is not very big), the grounds are lovely and each room has its own little patio area (which are connected to the other rooms). Instead of windows you have balcony doors which can be left open to enjoy the breeze - makes even staying indoors in the daytime very comfortable and relaxing. Heaters are provided in the room and in the toilet with extra heaters and blankets available. There is a selection of coffee, tea and hot chocolate available in each room. The toiletries provided are of very good quality however they were not refilled on the 2nd morning so we had to use them quite sparingly. 2 luggage racks are provided instead of just 1 which was quite a change from the other South Island places of accommodation so far. Bed is quite comfortable. For breakfast there is a yoghurt and cereal buffet with fruits, and you are given a choice of hot food - bacon/salmon/mushrooms served with toast and eggs. It is in all senses indeed a luxury boutique lodge.
Cons: Only thing is the sound proofing is really not good within the house and as the patios are all connected sometimes you will have people walking past or you can often hear them. Of course there are curtains for privacy.

Pros: Oasis of luxury just outside Wanaka in quiet and secluded grounds. Superb staff - friendly, warm, chatty - it’s like you’ve known them forever!

Excellent dinner prepared for us on the night we arrived by the in-house Chef who kindly and creatively catered for our various dietary restrictions, and followed up next morning with an equally excellent breakfast. Would we stay here again if in Wanaka? Absolutely!
