Read what our happy guests have to say about their holiday experiences in our accommodation.
“We loved this property, the staff, location, value for money and views were amazing! We stayed three nights in a lake view room, it did not disappoint.
The rooms were well appointed, warm, immaculately clean and very comfortable. Just a short walk to central Wanaka, restaurants, supermarket and takeaway outlets.”
"Lovely Lake View"
“Lovely lake view from our first floor room which was very comfortable, clean and good bathroom facilities.
The location was ideal for a short walk across the road to the town centre with plenty of restaurants and bars, so eating and drinking was not an issue”
"Amazing views across the lake!"
“The Moorings is positioned right opposite lake Wanaka with excellent views of the lake and the mountains.
Thoroughly enjoyed sitting out on the balcony with a glass of local tipple enjoying the views. Peter, the manager, was fantastic, very helpful and even offered us a bottle of milk when we checked in.
We thoroughly enjoyed our few days in Wanaka and the Moorings had everything we could’ve wanted, wish we could’ve stayed longer!”
"A Great Place To Stay In Wanaka"
“We were greeted at reception by Peter the owner who was very friendly. The Moorings is right across the street from the lake and a park. It is an easy, short walk into this lake resort town with many restaurants and shops.
The Moorings front motel style building has exceptional views of the lake. The back one and two bedroom apartments are nicely appointed, well furnished, have a great kitchen, along with a nice patio with a partial view and a barbecue.
This is an excellent place to stay while in Wanaka.”
“My hubby and I stayed here for 3 nights for part of our 25th wedding anniversary holiday. We loved it.
Incredible views looking over the balcony. We enjoyed our morning coffee and evening drinks watching people go by. Cooking facilities were handy but there’s no shortage of nice restaurants to enjoy. Thanks for a great stay!”
"Excellent place to stay, close to town & lake"
“We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. It had its own parking bay. It is essentially a 2 bed townhouse, with small garden, and good sized deck, overlooking the lake. A short 5 minute walk into the Main Street of Wanaka for food, shops etc., and only 2 minutes to the lake across the road. Great location.
We loved this place, it was spacious, well equipped, and very comfortable. A large bedroom upstairs, a slightly smaller one downstairs, where the bathroom was. Shower over bath, lots of space in bathroom. Kitchen was well equipped with oven, microwave, cook top, large fridge & all equipment. 4 person dining table, 2 sofas, tv etc. It has good air conditioning. The bonus was a deck with good outside table setting with umbrella. Great service, very friendly. Highly recommend.
We booked through booking.com but were told that they offer better prices if you book direct with them. something to bear in mind for next time.
Free parking, good wifi, good phone reception here.
Would definitely stay again, when in Wanaka.”
"Great Location, Beautiful View"
“This hotel is a great location with a beautiful view of the lake. Easy parking and walkable to all shops and restaurants in town. The staff was friendly and the room was clean.
We were only there for 2 nights, but could easily see staying there longer.
It had a nicely equipped kitchenette and a nice lounge area and outdoor table/chairs.”
"Very happy with our stay!"
“We booked a studio unit at very short notice, due to us being unhappy with our Airbnb accommodation.
We were lucky to get the last room available, at a rate less than what was quoted on various booking websites. We had a ground floor unit with lovely views of the lake and mountains.
Very clean and tidy unit, no issues at all. The location is very central so we walked everywhere. We would definitely stay here again”
