First impression - great location, clean, great service, big room, quality fittings. Pool was lovely and warm (29 deg) in December, good kitchen. Was a a little noisy over weekend (close to town) although double glazing helped.

This is one of the best accommodation we've ever experienced in our travels: 1) location is at town center. Very convenient indeed 2) great view, probably the best view in Wanaka 3) large apartment, well furnished and fitted, and good interior design as well 4) comfortable bed, good sleep 5) excellent service - management willing to make some adjustment to...

I could live here forever. The 2 bedroom has a lot of space, 2 toilets and everything you'd ever need. Decorations are not flash, but it's comfortable, homely and of good quality. Views are to die for. A home cooked dinner on the balcony with the lake and mountain views as side "dishes" are amazing. Literally across the street from... More

The housekeeping staff were friendly and efficient, and happy to assist with anything we asked of them. The room was clean, comfortable and had the touch of luxury ... with a very well fitted out kitchen with everything you could need including a dual... More

Right from walking in the door everything was superb. As a couple they upgraded us due to our late night arrival so we would have a close room to parking. The 3 bedroom apartment we were in was spacious and would be fantastic for a group or family. Views and service matched the great location. Highly recommended

Lakeside Apartments are just perfect. Wanaka is a beautiful location with breathtaking views from your apartment. We had a 2br bedroom apartment on the third floor and it was just perfect. Very clean with everything thought of. Serviced daily/full laundry facilities/comfortable beds. Spacious and so close to the shops/restaurants and cafes. Staff were very friendly. Thank you Kaye. Just PERFECT!

This is my third stay at this property and it is the best of all apartments I have stayed at in New Zealand. The apartments are immaculate and furnished with everything imaginable. The location is perfect and each unit has its own parking. They provide 50+ channels of SKY television on a super big flat screen television. With a washer,... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Lakeside Apartments. Always good to hear reviews from our returning guests. The apartments are now 12 years old, but with constant upgrading and refurnishing they still look fresh, modern and new. Couple that with our fantastic housekeeping team keeping everything spotless and we have the high level of standards,... More

We stayed here half way through our tour of the south island. Beautiful location across from the lake with a pool that the kids enjoyed in the late afternoon. Very spacious, modern and comfortable accommodations that were immaculate. There was a washer and dryer in the unit so we were able to wash all of our clothes for the second... More

One of the best places we have ever stayed, anywhere. Very large and well appointed apartment - wonderful views across the lake from lounge and master bedroom. well equipped kitchen, en-suite bathroom and laundry room. What impressed most was that everything seemed to have been thought of - if you thought 'I wonder if they've got that...', you opened a... More
