This is a fantastic place to stay in Wanaka. Hugely spacious apartment, immaculately cleaned and just a beautiful place to stay. We were on our second stop of travelling all around the South Island and if we hadn't already booked our next stop we would have stayed longer without a doubt. Free wifi, so close to town, a beautiful view and great heating - not to mention the awesome pool and spa. Very friendly and helpful management was a bonus too. We will be back!

If you are visiting Wanaka then lakeside Apartments is the obvious place to stay. The apartments are in a prime position overlooking the lake and mountains and only a few minutes walk into the main street. The clever design allows for 2-8 people to stay in an apartment, but you only pay for the number of bedrooms used. The apartments are spacious and well designed. The fittings and furnishings are high quality, the heating is excellent, the kitchen is well equiped and the views are amazing. Don't hesitate to stay here. Garry, one of the owners, is very helpful and happy to assist with advice on where to eat, activities etc.

Room Tip: We stayed in 201 which had a wrap around balcony and expansive views.

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.

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
