About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Had an amazing time staying at Edgewater in Wanaka. Our room had a great view of the lake and was right next to the walkway that lead all the way to Central Wanaka. Service was some of the best we've had with impeccable attention to detail. The room was great with a very impressive bathroom with huge bath and dual head shower. Good price, great place! Will definitely return.

Review:   We are staying in a self contained unit. It is fantastic! Can't complain about the spa bath either 😄 We had a lovely explore along the path around Lake Wanaka this morning as the sun came out. Hoping to hit the sauna and spa on the next day or so. We are just a easy 5 minute drive from the Wanaka township too!

Review:   Loved it! Best place I stayed in NZ. Beautiful rooms and views, huge suite, breakfast was great, location is fantastic you can walk down the beach to town. Be sure to take a picture of "that Wanaka tree" on your way 😉. Really fantastic - I would go back to Wanaka just to stay at Edgewater. Wish I could give it 6 stars.

Review:   This is an absolutely amazing place. It has breathtaking views and the staff are really helpful My kids loved the playground and the vast openess just outside our room. Everything about it is simply brilliant. We travelled the entire South Island and both my wife and I list this as our favourite! Michael LeCaine May 2018, Singapore

Review:   Stayed here 18 years ago and loved it. For a summer stay the room temperature is probably old but chilly for winter. Reasonably comfy. Love the bar and restaurant
