“Total relaxation”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Absolutely incredible stay. We stayed in a 1 bedroom deluxe apartment for 2 nights, wish we could have stayed longer! The views were to-die-for, kitchen immaculate & with everything we could possibly need. Also, the lounge room was super spacious! In fact, whole apartment was spacious. More like a house, so much room :-) The whole apartment complex was very well maintained. We enjoyed a few drinks in the heated spa bath late at night, looking out to the snow-capped mountains in the distance. Just beautiful. We will definitely be back!

Thank you for your feedback on your brief stay at Lakeside Apartments.

Many of our guests find leaving the luxurious and spacious apartments difficult, especially as we are located just a stone’s throw from spectacular Lake Wanaka.

We are pleased the apartment met your expectations and you managed to take the time to relax in the spa. The recent heavy snow falls have meant the mountains are more than snow-capped, but the beauty here is we are enjoying some of the best snow in years for snow sports yet still move around the town with no snow on the roads. May be your next trip to Lakeside Apartments will be for a skiing holiday.

Thanks again for your feedback.

These apartments overlook Lake Wanaka and were a magnificent location. The manager waited for us to arrive beyond his normal day and provided us with an upgrade to the huge penthouse which was easily the best accommodation we have ever stayed in. A completely private outdoor 6 person spa was put to great use and the location provided easy walking access to the centre of town. The manager was very helpful with local information. The fittings and fixtures were first class and the added touches particularly the bottle of champagne on arrival made it a very memorable stay. We really did not want to leave.

These apartments overlook the lake at Wanaka. The apartment fittings were to a very high standard with attention to detail, loads of room and mod-cons galore. We stayed in Room 201, and it was one of the nicest apartments we had stayed in anywhere. Its at the pricey end but you cannot fault it, and it was definitely worth it. Management were helpful and friendly. We want to come back and stay longer.

We had booked a Premier room but our party of 6 were upgraded to the penthouse. It added so much to our trip. The views over the lake were stunning and the sunsets to be experinced. Everything was laid on - all the amenities were of top class. A real highlight.

A must stay.

Understated quality, quiet, nothing too much trouble, flexible to individual needs, run subtly by experienced locals, housekeeping excellent. If feels like home quickly.

Stay a day or two at least.

Be prepared to be tempted to extend.

We planned on staying one night in Wanaka, but after arriving at the Lakeside we had to stay another day. We could have stayed another year. The apartments are well appointed and comfortable. The penthouse apartments have their own spa and BBQ which we took full advantage of. The reception team was very accommodating. The town is at your feet. We recommend making the walk up to the Rippon winery.

We have stayed in a lot of accommodation during our 6 month extended vacation in NZ. On several occasions I have said 'Best Yet' in my reviews, as the bar keeps getting ever higher. I can honestly say that the Lakeside Apartments at Wanaka, is definitely the very best and I'm pretty sure it won't be bettered, the whole place oozes class. Our apartment comprised of an open plan Lounge kitchen area, a separate bedroom with en suite bathroom and shower.

It could be utilised as a family room by opening up other bedrooms in a corridor off. The whole place is enourmous and has a balcony large enough to hold a Barn Dance, with table, chairs & loungers for your use. The whole place if fitted out with high class furnishings, the bed alone must have cost thousands. There is a 52 inch flat screen TV in the lounge with 50+ channels, and a 26 inch flat screen TV in the bedroom. there are 2 Dishwashers & large fridge freezer in the kitchen area. A separate utility room houses a washing machine and spin drier. The property directly overlooks Lake Wanaka & has superb views and yet is only 2 minutes walk from shops and restaurants. We stayed for 2 nights at a special rate of $199 per night. This is terrific value for the standard of facility, we would have gladly paid more for the priviledge. On top of all this, we were also allocated a garage for our car, this is definitely a first for us. Lifts are also available to upper levels. At the front of the apartment complex, there is a swimming pool and spar. Add friendly staff to the mix and you have the best that NZ can offer. This place is just superb.

Room Tip: If you are in Wanaka, stay here. I don't think it can be bettered anywhere. Higher floors will g...
