Fodor's Expert Review Edgewater

54 Sargood Dr., Wanaka, Otago, 9343, New Zealand

Directly by the water on the edge of town, the suites here have a full lounge and dining area and a well-equipped kitchenette, but it's the bathroom, complete with washer/dryer, that impresses most. The Wineglass Cafe in the hotel has a solid menu and excellent outdoor seating, and locals take the long walk around the lake to the Edgewater just to reward themselves with a famous fresh-baked scone. There are also studio hotel rooms available, and the two-bedroom apartment is really an interconnecting suite and hotel room. There's a free shuttle to town, too, and the taxi home isn't very expensive if you don't feel like walking.

PROS

  • free shuttle to town
  • good on-site café

CONS

  • it's a ½-hour stroll from the middle of town
