This is a wonderful place to stay. Right in town and next to the Park and Lake. The pool was great for the kids and the apartments are in very good condition. I really couldn't see myself staying anywhere else with my family of 6 next time we go to Wanaka. Sitting on the balcony driving a glass of wine...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Believe all the glowing positive reviews. Lakeside in Wanaka is the best serviced apartment we've ever stayed at: location, spacious rooms, full kitchen, clean, comfy beds & sofas, good shower pressure, outstanding views - the list goes on and on. Three of us stayed here for a bike race recently and couldn't have asked for more - space on the...

Thank you for your thorough review; you obviously enjoyed your stay then :) All our apartments are 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom and then we lock off any bedrooms and bathrooms not needed, so you have the living space of a three bedroom apartment, even if you pay for a one bedroom apartment. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Everything about these apartments is excellent. I have never given anyone five stars before. Stayed in a three bedroom apartment with two other couples. Immaculately clean, big and spacious in living area, bedrooms fine. Separate toilet room, to main bathroom. There is an ensuite off the main bedroom. Well set up with tv, stereo system. The view is amazing. Lovely...

Everything about Lakeside apartments was great. From check-in to check-out - friendly staff, great large apartment with awesome views, very upscale construction and very clean with daily maid service. No restaurant in the complex, but literally 20 coffee shops and restaurants within a few minutes walk. Highly recommend.

Our family stayed in a two bedroom apartment. We originally booked for two nights but ended up extending for a third night. In hindsight, we should have extended longer as Lakeside Apartments is much nicer than where we went to next in Queenstown. The apartment was lovely; very clean, nicely appointed, and tastefully decorated. It was wonderful to have access...

Thank you for staying with us and for your review. We are very proud of our small town and very proud to offer these wonderful apartments for our guests enjoyment. They really are a home away from home, with the added bonus of daily housekeeping and those jaw dropping views, especially with the recent falls of fresh snow on the...

We stayed here for only 1 night (unfortunately - it deserves 2 or three nights). Wanaka is fantastic, and this apartment was perfect. It was MASSIVE - we could happily live in it. The balcony was great, with deck chairs as well as a table and chairs, and it looks out over the beautiful Lake Wanaka. We will definitely come...

The Lakeside Serviced Apartments were recommended by our New Zealand friends during our visit to Lake Wanaka (about a 1 hour drive from Queenstown Airport) from United States. We knew the property was highly rated but it exceeded our expectations. The reception from Blair was outstanding - providing us all the information we needed about our unit and the property....

Thank you for your very thorough review of Lakeside Apartments. We are pleased to hear our usual standard service was well received and the Apartments exceeded your expectations. All our luxurious apartments face the lake so have wonderful views of Lake Wanaka and the snowy peaks of Mount Aspiring National Park.
