We stayed here for 2 nights in early aug 13 and absolutely loved it, the 3 bed room apartment on a higher floor was like a home away from home, check in was as easy as "hi, welcome and here is your key" no time consuming paper work to fill out, we had just drove from Chrischurch and just wanted to shower and relax.
The apartment had everything we needed, great heating and wonderful views of the lake, with a very big veranda. Just a 2 min walk to the local pubs, shops etc.We made use of the bbq one night for dinner as the apartment has all the utensils we needed, and even though it was a bit chilly my husband used the jacuzzi and loved every minute of it, If i return to Wanaka i would return to this hotel gladly.

We stayed here for a Family get together weekend. The Apartment was spotlessly clean, very spacious, lovely decor, and in excellent condition overall. The location is lakefront with outstanding views across the lake to the mountains. I would rate it as five star standard. Thank you also to the very lovely and helpful Lady Manager. We look forward to staying again.

Room Tip: All Apartments face the Lake. All have fine views.

We had a 3 bedroom apartment, the bedrooms were very spacious, huge kitchen & lounge!
Great views overlooking the lake and surrounding mountains!
Was very close to walk to all restaurants and shops!
Big thankyou to Mandy for giving us some great advice on where to eat and shop!

We have now stayed at Lakeside on 3 separate occasions. Each time we have found the units to be immaculate, the Management friendly and helpful, and the views spectacular. It is an easy, short walk into town, so the car can be left in your personal lock up garage. The kitchen is huge and the cupboards fully stocked up for entertaining. The cleaning staff are efficient and friendly. The paper is delivered to your door each day, the beds are comfortable, the floors and towel rails heated in winter, the deck area is large and the deck furniture comfortable to take in the amazing views of the lake and mountains. There is not a bad word to say about Lakeside. It is perfect! Wanaka is such an amazing and beautiful town and staying at Lakeside makes it even more memorable. We will only ever stay at Lakeside whenever we return to Wanaka.

Wow - Wanaka is so beautiful. Unfortunately we only spent one night here. Next time we will definitely be spending a lot more! This unit was HUGE. The kitchen is fully kitted out and you could happily spend a couple of weeks here. The room we stayed in had amazing full views of the lake just across the road. The bed was very comfortable and the ensuite was large, warm and very clean. We were both really impressed with this place. Our room also had a massive TV with all of the sky channels (pay TV) which was nice to relax with after a long day's drive. The room comes with a lock up garage which was very much appreciated. I cannot say enough good things about this place.
The gentleman at reception next morning recommended Gusto for breakfast (just downstairs really) which was lovely so I would also happily recommend! We ate the previous night at the Mexican restaurant across the road - Amigos. Very, very busy (we could not get a table at all) so ended up eating our dinner sitting on the couches next to the fireplace, which was actually very pleasant. Great food if you like Mexican although if you can book ahead.

Room Tip: I think most of the rooms fronting Lakeside Road would have lake views but I would definitely recomm...

This is a great set of apartments. They are three bedroom units, and they shut off the rooms you don't rent. This means the living areas are very generous. The units are well appointed. The housekeeping is efficient and unobtrusive. The reception staff are friendly.

The location is perfect. Walking distance to most of the local restaurants and shopping, but still quiet.

We couldn't recommend this place highly enough.

My family and I recently had a fantastic two week holiday in New Zealands South Island. Our first week was spent in Wanaka, with three days skiing in Cardrona.
Our second week was spent traveling around in a Britz van which was amazing but by the 6th day, and arriving back in Wanaka we needed a bread from the van...and we found Lakeview!!
Could not recommend this accommodation more! We were lucking enough to stay in the Penthouse for two nights which was nothing short of amazing!!
Beautifully appointed rooms, extremely friendly staff, amazing view and walking distance to everything you could possibly need.
