“THE Best place to stay in Lake Wanaka”
Reviewed October 10, 2011

We spent 2 nights at the Lakeside Apartments in Lake Wanaka and wished we could have stayed longer. The lakeside location is excellent, the views from all of the apartments of the lake are excellent, the service is excellent, and walking into the apartment for the first time, takes your breath away, They are superb. The kitchen alone, blew me away, it was nicer than mine at home! Double dishwasher, large fridge and freezer. Very comfortable beds and ensuites, a lovely lounge to relax in, with dining table, television, DVD player etc. 2 terraces with outdoor furniture.
Walking distance to local shops and restaurants. Cannot fault and we will return!

These apartments are fantastic! Great rates and very friendly staff. Our son got sick on the morning we were due to check out. The front desk told us to sort him out at the Dr's first and not to stress about the check out time. We will definately be back!

Our stay at Lakeside Apartments really "made" our stay in Wanaka. We arrived to find that we had been "upgraded" to one of the penthouse apartments. WOW!! The view was superb, the apartment was immaculate and very well appointed. Waking up in the morning to an amazing view of Lake Wanaka was very special. Allan at the front desk was extremely helpful and friendly and provided us with any information we required, i.e. eating places, suggested trips and local knowledge. The local restaurants were excellent and we felt that they were very good value for money. There is no better place to stay than these apartments for location and presentation. Hope to return here some time in the near future. Thank you to the management team. Would recommend these apartments without hesitation.

Just recently came back from an amazing ski holiday in NZ, made all the better by our stay at Lakeside. Checked in for 2 nights ended up staying 3 and delaying our flights out. After staying 5 nights at a totally over priced hotel in Queenstown (thats another storey) our stay at Lakeside was more than satisfying. Breathtaking lake view apartment, massive kitchen, ultra clean and modern facilities including the 2 hot tubs. I couldn't recommend this place anymore and will be sure to be back next year. Special thanks to the helpful management they were fantastic.

Working for an airline we have stayed in a lot of hotels and this was up there with the best.

Room Tip: Lave view apartments are amazing

Thank you for taking the time to review Lakeside.

We had a great end of season on Sunday with fresh snow on the mountains and t-shirt weather in the town.

We are pleased you liked the hot tubs; we took the plunge in July and invested in a second hot tub which has been popular with our guests. We are even thinking of adding a third next year! The combination of an awesome lake view and relaxing your aching skiing muscles in a hot tub is certainly magic.

All of our apartments have spectacular views of Lake Wanaka and Mount Aspiring National Park; from the ground floor apartments, just steps away from the pool, to the penthouses with their large balconies and their own private hot tub.

Fantastic 2 night stay in 1 bedroom apartment (201). Breathtaking views of lake wanaka, 2 mins stroll into town and local restaurants etc. Friendly helpful service (Gary at front desk was good value). Couldn't recommend this facility more highly. High level finish, common areas clean and modern, competitive price especially considering what is on offer!

Room Tip: 201 is mint, however pretty sure there are plenty with great views!

The apartment was fabulous, spacious, very clean and modern. More than a home away from home, this was a fantastic treat away from home. The location couldn't of been better, very central to all the cafe's bars and activities.

Located on the lakefront so an amazing view from the balcony. We were extremely happy with everything and would recommend to anyone. Can not wait until we come back in Summer - thank you Gary.

Also; there's a brilliant kids playground over the road for those travelling with children.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review and pointing out the variety of accommodation we have.

When we took over the management of the apartments last November, we liked the flexibility of the apartments, allowing us to utilise just one ensuite bedroom or to open up either one or two more bedrooms for friends or family.

Hopefully you will find time to have another trip to Lakeside in the near future.
