Very picturesque location with gorgeous lake views. Room was large and had all the necessities required. Very friendly hosts. Not much privacy, with shared patio area, but otherwise was in a good location and within walking distance of downtown Wanaka.

The drive confirmed that New Zealand is the most beautiful country in the world. End of. We had a little walk around the massive lake when we ...
... That said when I got up there on the Gondola, with the wind howling, I think I would have bottled it. The Gondola was bad enough - see photos. After an exhilarating, underpants filling time, we then left to get to Arthur's Point - our next stay. Due to Chinese New Year all accommodation in Queenstown was fully booked. So using the Internet I managed to find by chance Nuggets Point Hotel at ...
... very curious positioning
- It gave the perfect view of the valley
- from there it wasn't long until we reached the routeburn falls, which was the hut we were staying in that night
- we got there around 2, so we had a lot of time to kill
- The hut was nice, it had a big kitchen, and bathrooms with real toilets, they were honestly just as nice as any other toilet, except it might be cold in the morning, and once, a while ago, somebody left the door ...
