These can be organised at reception, and prepared by you on one of Edgewater’s gas barbeques.

Google Reviews



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:   BEST SCONES I’ve ever eaten! We didn’t actually stay at Edgewater however stumbled across the Cafe on our walk and the most incredible scones! It’s a 30 minute wait however it’s so FRESH and so worth it. We went back for round 2 before leaving Wanaka! Also very lovely service! Thank you :)

Review:   Beautiful place. Highly recommend. Amazing views by lake front where you can walk for miles and enjoy the tranquillity of space. Rooms are amazing. Food superb with wonderful staff. A walk away from town centre and local vineyard. Car recommended to enjoy scenic drives and local activities. We would definitely stay again

Review:   The property was amazing. We were on our honeymoon and we truly enjoyed staying there. Lake view rooms are most preferred. Services are good. In room facilities were ok... Our kettle had some weird smell and even bath tub wasn't clean properly
