You have to see the size of the apartment to believe it! And so beautifully appointed I could move in permanently. The location is fabulous - with gorgeous views over the mountains and the lake and within walking distance to the lakefront, shops, cafes etc. When we arrived the very sweet receptionist first showed my husband where to park in...

We stayed in the Lakeside Apartments this November and were so comfortable, impressed and happy that we stayed longer than we'd planned. Beautiful swimming pool, views of the lake, very modern apartment with everything one could want or imagine. Front desk folks were so helpful and helped book a tour of Milford Sound with a great guide (only one other... More

Everything about this place is superlative: location, space, amenities and appliances, staff, cleanliness. Impeccable service and everything you could want to relax and enjoy your vacation. Besides the obvious quality that surrounds you, great attention has been given to the smallest details. Even if the weather doesn't cooperate (stayed 2 nights in November so it was a bit cold and...

We stayed four nights at Lakeside and wish we could have stayed longer. We had a premier apartment and I was very impressed at the level of cleanliness and quality of fittings etc. The view of the lake was spectacular and the location was excellent - no need to get the car out as it was a three minute walk...

You can't beat this place in Wanaka with fantastic rooms and unbelievable scenery of the lake and surrounding mountains. The folks running the place are very welcoming and friendly and did their best to make sure we had an enjoyable stay.

Superbly stocked kitchen & great size fridge. It was cleaned to a very high standard daily by a very friendly team of ladies. The pool & BBQ area is a... More

Cannot fault these apartments, spotlessly clean and well maintained. Well equipped apartments in the perfect location...fantastic views over the lake and strolling distance away from the best cafes and bars in town.

My girlfriend and I stayed in this hotel in November in 2012. The location was perfect and the views totally amazing. The rooms that we stayed in ( we liked it so much we stayed again on the route back) were immaculate and went far beyond what we could have hoped for and it really was one of highlights of... More

My husband and I were given two nights accommodation as a gift for our wedding. The owner found out it was our honeymoon and gave us a free upgrade to the Penthouse. What an absolutely beautiful apartment - fully equipped with stunning views and a massive balcony to view them from. So close to the main street but very private,... More
