The resort looked fantastic from the outside. We were travelling with another couple and were able to make a last minute booking. The unit we were shown was huge and extremely well appointed, what you would expect from a 5 star resort. We would have loved to have stayed longer but our tight schedule did not allow this. We went for a relaxing walk around the lake in the morning...fantastic. I would recommend this resort.

Stayed: September 2013, traveled with friends

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

The apartments certainly do accommodate couples travelling together. With their spacious living areas and two bathrooms, each couple have their own private space to relax and enjoy their stay.

We are experiencing a wonderful weather high here in Wanaka at the moment and with the longer days and still winter snow on parts of the skifields, it truly is paradise.

Hopefully, when you next come to Wanaka, you will be able to plan a longer holiday and enjoy more of what Wanaka offers.

The apartment was spacious and had everything we needed. The location is perfect. We enjoyed using the hot tub after a day of skiing. The view was also really lovely. The lock up garage was great as we could leave our skis on the car.

Just stayed here for a week with university aged children and had a most wonderful time. Lakeside is in a perfect location for cafes and restaurants but with stunning views over the lake. We stayed in a ground floor apartment and loved the easy access to the spa pools. Apartment 101 got great afternoon sun with the side windows as well as front sun (107 would be equally as good). Lakeside is very well run. The managers are friendly and easy, the staff seem happy and everything is well very maintained.

Room Tip: We liked 101 and 107

My self and two university friends stayed in the top floor penthouse rooms. The apartments are great value for money, in prime position for an easy walk to town, but not on the main road so quiet at night. When we came home tired from a day skiing, the spa and comfy beds cam in very useful. Beautiful rooms, clean facilities. Friendly and interesting staff. Very happy!

Room Tip: Pent houses were fantastic

It is easy to see why Lakeside Apartments is Wanaka's #1 accommodation choice on Trip Advisor

We stayed for nearly three weeks and made it our home. Close to facilities, great location, great service and substantial apartments with lock-up garage so we could leave snowboards on the car roof racks.

Urban Grind next door is a fabulous place for a late night coffee and dessert (in house or take back to apartment).

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.
