“Magnificent in every way”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

After several nights traveling and staying in cheaper accommodation we stayed here for 2 nights as a luxurious treat. Situated right in the heart of Wanaka opposite the lake the apartments are huge - probably more the style of apartments that people actually live in than 'holiday' style. The three bedroom apartment we had on the second floor had stunning views over the lake and town. The panorama is seen from the main bedroom and the living room and because of the layout can be enjoyed from the kitchen and meals area too. The only rooms not to have views were the 2 minor bedrooms located at the back of the apartment.
The furnishings were of excellent quality and the well equipped kitchen allowed for cooking on a grand scale if desired. The bathrooms had underfloor heating (ahhhhh), heated towel rails, and were exceptionally clean . All the rooms were very large and spacious and the bedrooms had fantastic beds with electric blankets. There was plenty of heating to keep out the winter chill.
There is undercover, lockable, parking and space to securely store snow gear or sports equipment in your own garage.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
These apartments tick all the boxes - views, location, space, style, comfort, cleanliness.......
Will I stay here again? Hopefully!

Room Tip: Just book - you can't go wrong.

We have now stayed at the Lakeside Aparments in Wanaka 3 or 4 times.
The un-interrupted views of the lake and mountains can't be beaten, and it is very close to shops and restaurants.
The appartments are large and very tastefully decorated. They have all facilites you would expect, and more.
The Managers are very friendly and quick to help.
Will be returning.

THis is a lovely modern apartment complex right on the lake. All the views are fantastic and the facilities are superior. We were delighted to be offered a complimentary upgrade for our 4 night stay to the stunning penthouse apartment. It has amazing views from an enormous deck where we enjoyed the jacuzzi. This apartment was very well equipped and the furnishings

It is hard to say enough good things about these apartments and the people who run them. The views are outstanding and the sunsets were spectacular. The beds so comfortable, the kitchen was very well appointed and the general layout of the apartment worked beautifully for our family. The apartments are so convenient to everything in Wanaka yet still quiet and peaceful.
The staff were the most obliging of anywhere we have stayed and just delightful to chat to.This is an all season place to stay and we will definitely stay there agin next time we are in Wanaka.

Room Tip: All the rooms have brilliant views. The ground floor rooms have very convenient access to the pool a...

We apprehensively went to New Zealand in the winter, and were extremely pleased with the weather, the people, and the incredibly beautiful scenery. Among the many hotels we stayed in, I would easily say the Lakeside Apartments were the most spectacular. Beautifully furnished, huge, fantastic views of the lake, a congenial and accommodating staff, and all at a very reasonable price. We could not have been more pleased!

The apartments were amazing! They had everything we needed as a family to have an enjoyable ski trip. The service was efficent and everyone there was very helpful! The rooms are extremely comfortable and spacious to come home to after a long day skiing. All apartments have amazing views of over the lake looking at the mountains, and we saw a spectacular sunset each night. The children enjoyed the spas at night! No where nicer to stay in Wanaka! Would come back again and again!
