An excellent stay with very pleasant and welcoming staff. The apartments are A+++ and very well maintained. Highly recommended 👍👍 wanaka is way better than queenstown if you want some peace and quiet and lakeside apartments is the place to be.

We completed our 6 weeks 'bucket list' holiday in March and from the 15 hotels and apartments that we stayed at this was 'Simply the Best". Trailfinders found this accommodation for us but we don't think they know just how good it is. Had we realised in advance, we would have booked 5 nights and used it as our base... More

Thank you for your review and we are pleased we came top of your 15 stays during your 'bucket list' holiday. Your wonderful review will hopefully encourage future guests to base themselves in spectacular Wanaka and take easy day trips to Queenstown and Arrowtown, just one hour drive away and the closer Cardrona, just 20 mins away. Wanaka offers a... More

It is hard to top the glowing reviews this special property receives, but here goes! My husband and I stayed here for two nights in April. When we travel, we aim for great comfort and good, central location in accomodations and Lakeside delivered in spades. Our third floor one bedroom apartment was nearly as large as our Boston urban apartment.... More

Thank you for your review. We are always pleased to hear from our guests that we have more than met their expectations, and I can see that is the case with your experience. Yes the apartments are certainly large and spacious. The beauty of the complex is the ability to close off two bedrooms and the second bathroom, to allow... More

Found this place after research on trip Advisor and if I have to describe the place in one word it would be "fantabulous" .......... tried very hard to find fault but unfortunately could not.......... lovely, comfortable, clean, heart of town, lake facing stay !!

We booked for three nights as part of one of our frequent South Island tours and because we enjoyed it so much we extended our stay for another night. We stayed in a penthouse suite which was spotlessly clean and we had panoramic uninterrupted views of the lake and surrounding mountains from both the lounge area and main bedroom. There... More

Our 3 week motor camping trip in the South Island of New Zealand was starting to be more work than relaxation. We both traveled in campers in Europe in the 70's, this was our second New Zealand camping trip, our camper was wonderful , but for about the first 7-10 days . We missed the creature comforts of a roof... More

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay. Yes the warmth and comfort of Lakeside Apartments in the Autumn is more appealing than a camper. Solid walls are an advantage. I can see that you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed the luxurious apartments and spotless grounds. The apartments were built over a decade ago now,... More

This was one of our favorite places in our three-week trip to NZ. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and our two-bedroom apartment was clean, spacious, and nicely furnished. The views of the lake from our balcony were stunning, and private parking and walking proximity to town were more plusses. Fast and reliable internet was included in our stay.... More

This was the best price-quality proposition out of our entire 3-and-a-half weeks in New Zealand (on both the North and South Islands). The front-desk staff was super friendly and helpful. Our 3-BR apartment was pristine: extremely clean with modern bathrooms and kitchen. There was a large terrace with great views of Lake Wanaka. The kids loved the pool downstairs and... More
