“Fantastic location and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2012

We stayed at Lakeside apartments for 4 nights during January with our children and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in terms of location, amenities and service. The apartment was spacious, modern and had everything you needed to make your stay comfortable. The view across lake Wanaka is superb and the fact it is just a 2 minute stroll to all the cafes and shops is fantastic. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Our children loved the pool and spa and their is a fantastic playground across the road. All in all we couldn't have asked for anything more.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Lakeside Apartments.

We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay so much you are coming back. The pools have definitely been popular this long hot summer.

Customer service is a priority at Lakeside and sometimes this does mean we are away from the front desk helping other guests. We always have someone on site 24/7 carrying a phone so just a push of the button on the reception telephone and we’ll be there.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Wanaka and Lakeside Apartments.

We love staying at Lakeside Apartments. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the view is to die for. After living out of a suitcase for a month, the apartment living with all amenities allowed us to spread out, relax and cook a home cooked meal.
We recommend staying at Lakeside!!

We loved our time at Lakeside Apartments. We have stayed for a skiing holiday last year and have just returned from our Summer holidays. So close to everything and you can get your morning coffee at the fabulous cafe next door. Apartments have everything you need and sooo clean. The staff are amazing and friendly. We cant wait to go back next year

Room Tip: HIgher floors have the best views

We've just spent two nights at Lakeside Apartments for a few days to ourselves after our wedding. Our apartment was absolutely amazing, views spectacular and we couldn't have asked for more. Management were so kind, and generous for our stay. Was a very short walk to the bars and restaurants. We were recommended a restaurant by the management and its was superb. Would recommend Lakeside to anyone. We'll definitely be back.
Many thanks, Antony & Tarryn Deaker

After a week touring the South Island by car, Wanaka was a bonus stop for us after cutting back a dissapointing Nelson stopover by a day. The Lakeside was magnificent in all regards and the service top class. Apartment living with all amenities included allowed us to kick back and relax and BBQ our own dinner, after a week of restaurants. The views and the facilities are world class and should not be missed for those planning to stay in Wanaka

We stayed here for a nite and was amazed to see the scenery from our balcony. There was a hot tub jacuzzi and my kids and I had a wonderful time in it by the lakeside. Very clean and their barbecue setting area is so well planned. Will surely go there again.
