“Great stay and a home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

I stayed with my Mother and we had a 2 bedroomed 2 bathroomed apartment.

The apartment was fabulous and so quiet. Probably wouldn't suit someone who wanted to be on the tourist strip but for us, great that we had a quiet night and could pop back and forth after going into town.

Beds were a bit hard and it was a tad difficult to find....if you book here, just head along the lake front heading west and look for the road with the big rock entrance (about a kilometre past the turnoff to Queenstown via the Crown Range Road) and the road is on your left. It is in a residential area so it can be confusing.

Clean, well equipped and large - we did not see anywhere in Wanaka we would have preferred to stay so thumbs up.

We did find a pair of mens shoes in our apartment (under the coffee table) so maybe the vacuuming wasn't up to scratch but heavens that is being picky!

Room Tip: Stay close to reception - WIFI connection is better.

We booked a two room unit Jan 2013. The rooms were perfect for a us, Two kids aged 2 and 10 months. This was the perfect base to explore Wanaka and the lakes. Walking into town and the playgrounds was a breeze. The unit was perfect for relaxing and settling the kids. couldn't recomend highly enough. Units were Clean, very comfortable, and very quiet. The BBQ facilities were fantastic. We actually rang a friend to join us on our last night as was soo comfortable!!

We stayed in a 1 bed apartment for a 6 night stay and were very pleased with the apartment. It was great value, very spacious, well appointed and very comfortable. The apartments are well positioned in a lovely and quiet area which is only a 10 minute walk to town (or a 5 minute walk to the lake and a fantastic trail for a daily run!). The reception and housekeeping staff were friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again when we are next in Wanaka (and we definitely want to return - such a beautiful part of the world!). The only *minor* negative was that the wi-if signal was a bit weak from our apartment, but in the scheme of things this really did not matter!

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit and it was very comfortable and furnished to a high standard. Very friendly reception. All mod cons - DVD player, washer and drier, coffee maker etc. The pool complex was very nice and great to have in summer. WiFi Internet is available for a very modest fee but was a bit erratic in our unit.
Location is good - there is a shortcut for walking to the lakeside.

We stayed here for one night on a drive from Southland back to Christchurch.
We called ahead to warn that we would be late in arriving, the lady at reception was very friendly and accommodating. The key was left to pick up on our arrival after reception had closed.
We were very impressed by the size of the one bedroom apartment. It was equipped with sufficient kitchen appliances and implements to make a longer stay very comfortable. A gas fire in addition to standard heaters would ensure that a winter stay would be very cosy. My only negative comment would be that there didn't seem to be any provision for cooling (although I may have simply overlooked it), and the temperatures in Wanaka can get quite hot during summer. The place was a little warm and stuffy when we arrived, but we slept well on the very comfortable bed with the windows open slightly.
The location was good - an easy 10-15 minute walk along the lakeside to the shopping/food area.
Would definitely stay here again for either a stopover, or a longer trip.

We stayed at Wanaka Luxury Apartments in early Dec 2012. We stayed in one of the smaller apartments, which meant we were farthest from the main building. This would account for the poor internet reception. Despite being well appointed apartments, the housekeeping service was terrible.

Room Tip: Go for one closer to the main building / office area to guarantee decent wifi. Specify the type of c...

We stayed at apartment 6b December 8-9th December . We had a two bedroomed apartment with two bathrooms, open plan kitchen/dinining room/lounge. The accommodation was superb in every aspect - beautifully clean and maintained - with as much heating as you wanted. There was even a coffee making machine! The accommodation came complete with washing machine and tumble drier/ TV etc - everything you needed for a restful, relaxing holiday. Wi-fi was extra but reasonably priced.

Well done to everyone concerned.
