“Memorable lake view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Spent 4 days in waking up to a gorgeous memorable lake view from the patio. Spacious kitchen and living area and bedroom for two. We had a romantic time and we can't wait to go back perhaps during the ski season.

Perfect position in the centre of town with views up the lake.The spacious apartment was exceptionally well equipped and spotlessly clean. Good heating and lighting. Servicing of the apartment was daily. Can thoroughly recommend as THE place to stay in Wanaka

2 adults and 2 teenage sons from Oz. Met at reception by very friendly female staff (sorry can't remember her name but she's lovely - possibly owner/manager?). Were allowed to move into our level 3 apartment a little early (near midday) and what a fabulous apartment it was. Absolute lake views, very modern and soooooo clean and neat. Even the cutlery is lined up in the tray, it was amazing how good the room staff keep the apartment. Large comfy bed, and boys had room to themselves with beds each. can't fault the place it even offered BBQ's to cook your dinner by the pool (with olive oil waiting for you). Parking was a tight fit for us but not much of a challenge and you can lock the car away if you feel the need, although no real need as Wanaka felt safe and like a little seaside town = it really is a lovely place. Do yourself a favour and stay at the Lakeside Apartments (we had 306) it's truly fab.

Oh Asian gentleman next door had mighty loud voices, so not sure if it was a case of thin'ish walls or just inconsiderate loud people. Only a problem one night the rest was quiet so 100% recommend.

Room Tip: 306 was great - would suggest this level for views, level 2 for easier access to car park (although...

We travelled in September and it was still fresh and nippy. The view from the room is stunning so get a lake front room for sure. The rooms are self contained and there is a supermarket and bottle shop around the corner.
The staff are friendly and rooms very clean with everything you need but food. They are not cheap but I was surprised to see that you can heggle the price down, we got a discount of 15% from advertised price. Wanaka can get very full during the wings over Wanaka and during peak ski season.
Once again the views are the best in Wanaka and its an easy walk to everything in town.
Highly recommended for a beautiful experience of NZ.

My family has recently toured the whole of South Island recently and we must say that Lakeside Apartments has given us the best memories! In fact, we were all very excited when we entered the apartment. Extremely clean rooms with a well equipped kitchen and lovely lake view from the living room. What more can we ask for? Not forgetting great hospitality from the family who owns the place. Many thanks for making our stay a pleasant one!

I agree with all the comments made by the other reviewers. These lakeside apartments are extremely well located with jaw dropping views of the lake and snow capped mountains beyond. Just walk across the road to all the bars and restaurants, and after a meal and a few glasses of fine pinot, walk back home. No drinking and driving. The free wifi is fast and reliable, the apartment is well appointed and the beds are comfy. The management is friendly and helpful. Then there are the little things that are appreciated; the ground coffee and plunger and complimentary cookies and the morning paper delivered to your door. This is a five star amenity at a very reasonable price. I have stayed at other apartments in Wanaka and most are pretty ordinary. We will stay at Lakeside every time we visit Wanaka. There really isn't anywhere else that compares.

This is a fantastic place to stay in Wanaka. Hugely spacious apartment, immaculately cleaned and just a beautiful place to stay. We were on our second stop of travelling all around the South Island and if we hadn't already booked our next stop we would have stayed longer without a doubt. Free wifi, so close to town, a beautiful view and great heating - not to mention the awesome pool and spa. Very friendly and helpful management was a bonus too. We will be back!
