Just a short distance out of Wanaka, Wyndham Vacation Resorts is a timeshare style of property featuring self-contained apartments. Previously known as Wanaka Motor Inn and Mt Aspiring Hotel, this property was taken oven by Wyndham 6 years ago.

The incredibly friendly and helpful staff will make you feel welcome and will help with any booking requests around town. The facilities are also good, with an outdoor pool, waterslide, hot tub, BBQ area and a small gym. Before your kids get too excited, know that the pool and slide is closed in winter. However you will still have use of the hot tub, which is certainly a nice place to relieve those aching ski muscles.

The apartments range from studios to 3 bedrooms. In general, they are a good size and pleasantly decorated in a modern style. Each one has a balcony or patio.

The studios have a small kitchenette but with only the basic facilities of a toaster, kettle, fridge and microwave. There is no kitchen sink or hot plate, so really best used for light meals such as cereal and toast. The larger apartments have bigger kitchens. We recommend requesting an apartment on a higher floor as they have higher, vaulted ceilings which makes them feel more spacious.

While there is no restaurant at the resort, there is a café that serves breakfast and coffee in the mornings, and drinks and pizza in the evenings. We were told this could change to include more offerings soon.

The layout of the resort does feel a little cramped and parking can be tight during busy periods. It is located an easy 20 minute walk or 2 minute drive from downtown Wanaka.
