Great location and place to stay in Wanaka. We were even upgraded on arrival! We liked the apartment so much and the town, we requested to stay an extra night and it was arranged by the staff with no issue at all. Spacious apartments, parking and free WIFI.

This is a group of condo’s which face Lake Wanaka. The town of Wanaka is a short walk, less than 5 mins. to one section and 10 mins. to the other section of town. Our single bedroom was actually a 3 bedroom but the closed off the 2 additional bedrooms as we had only requested a single bedroom. There was... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Lakeside Apartments. Your description describes the apartments well and yes, all apartments face the lake, so all have spectacular views of the lake and mountains. And yes, each apartment has secure individual covered car parking. Being just a stone's throw from the lake, access is very easy. As you... More

Perfect location, excellent accommodation, poolside, option to cook in our walk to all the local restaurants. Cannot be beat in Wanaka or most of NZ. Wake up to a lovely lakeside view. Yes, it is expensive but again, worth every dollar.

What a fantastic place to stay. We were in a poolside unit, so made good use of the pool and spa. The accommodation and all the facilities were immaculate and the staff friendly and helpful. We hope to stay again next Christmas/New Year - Illingworth Family

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in one of our Poolside apartments. The beauty of these poolside apartments is the proximity to the pools. Behind the safety gate from each Poolside Apartment, children are kept safe. Yet they are within sight if old enough to be around the pool. Ideal for our family guests. And who... More

Great views from all apartments, spacious, modern and well appointed amenities. We had everything we needed for our stay. The best of all is the friendly and 'never a problem' attitude of Blair and the rest of the team at Lakeside. There are 4 levels (including ground level, Level 1). Each apartment has 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms. They can... More

Thank you for your review of Lakeside Apartments. Guest reviews that point out the facilities are always great, because potential guests can read for themselves, other guests experiences. Yes the configuration of the apartments with the ability to lock off the second and third bedroom and second bathroom is very smart. Guests that are couples can then enjoy the vast... More

I absolutely loved this place. We had a 2 bedroom deluxe apartment on the 3rd floor. It was so spacious and clean with a huge balcony and a fantastic view of the forever changing lake and mountains. It was serviced daily which was lovely. The bed in the main bedroom was one of the best I've ever slept in -... More

Thank you for your review and I know what you mean; waking up in those luxurious beds to the awesome lake and mountain views is truly worth a longer stay. With the central location, these apartments are so close and walkable to most Wanaka restaurants and shops, yet being opposite the lake, means the views are spectacular from every apartment....

Great stay here! We were upgraded to a penthouse suite which was HUGE. The whole place was great - really modern with a clothes washer/dryer, beautiful bathrooms, soft robes, comfortable bed, incredible hot tub on the deck and the views that went on forever. Great parking too. They gave us directions and recommendations for meals which were good. We got... More

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.
