Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are all very pleased in Wanaka that mother nature has finally come to the party and covered our mountains in natural snow :) With all the ski-fields now open, our ski visitors can at last spread themselves around the various mountains. Thank you for the kind words about our... More

Perfectly located opposite the Lake front in Wanaka, large clean rooms with great view, walk across the road to great cafes and bars, my only criticism is that I just feel the price is too high, for the money we paid I would have at least expected robes in the room, I guess there is no competition in Wanaka so...

This was our second stay at Lakeside Apartments and we cannot fault it. The views are incredible, both winter and summer. The apartment itself (three bedroom) was immaculate, modern, extremely comfortable beds and fully equipped kitchen. The staff are fantastic and the location is incredibly handy. We cannot wait to go back!

From the moment when we called ahead to request a cot and high chair for our grandson and then arrived and were given an early check-in, the staff and amenities of this property were impossible to fault. Absolutely beautifully decorated, every appliance you could wish for, tasteful furnishings and a spectacular view of the lake. To cap it off, Lakeside... More

I read the reviews of this place on Trip Advisor and decided to book it, and I'm so glad we did. The apartments are located right across the road from the lake within easy walking distance from the shops and cafes. Just far enough away from town so you don't hear all the noise. Although I was worried that we'd... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Lakeside Apartments. A very thorough review indeed. Addressing some of your comments, all our apartments have three bedrooms and two bathrooms and we open up bedrooms and bathrooms depending on the number of guests. Thus, the living area which more than easily accommodates six guests, is a huge space... More

This place faces a beautiful lake and mountains. It was really nice to wake up to such an awesome view! We stayed for 1 night in the premium apartment (Room 301) on the 3rd floor, which was well furnished and came with a huge balcony cos it's the corner unit. The building has 4 storeys and we chose the premium... More

The room reveal was on par with a reality show. To walk in and see that gorgeous view was worth it straight away. Expansive decks, everything super clean, well appointed and attention to detail was obvious. Nice work and so happy to be here :) note. Photo taken at dusk

We stayed two nights on the third level Room 304. Lovely and spacious with everything you needed. Lovely deck with a couple of sun loungers which was nice to sit on and watch the sun go down. We used the TV once in the lounge, but found the volume was set too loud and if we tried to turn it... More

Thank you for your review of Lakeside Apartments. You obviously enjoyed your stay even though you experienced a few issues. We have managed to condense the range of remotes down to just two - one of the Sky TV and one for the music. We have limited to noise on the TV. Like most public spaces, we do occasionally have...
