“Very good place with full amenities”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

The ground floor apartment was spacious, modern, nicely decorated and with fully equipped kitchen. It comes with all the amenities you'd get in a four star hotel. It also comes with a wash machine and dryer. It has a heated large outdoor pool and a hot tub. The outdoor common areas has also 2 BBQ. The staff is mostly friendly and helpful. Last, the apartment comes with its own private garage.
Tip: if you want gorgeous views on the lake, it is best to ask for the top floors.
Also, I fully recommend the Massage in Wanaka salon for exceptional massages.

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

Yes the upper floors of the apartment complex do have gorgeous lake views. Every apartment has a lake and mountain view with the ground floor also having direct access to the pool. The top fourth floor, our Penthouse Apartments, have outstanding views.

We hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip and look forward to seeing you back in Wanaka soon.

To Gary, Mandy and the team at Lakeside, what can we say - the perfect apartments for us during our wedding week. Our guests were amazed by the beautiful well fitted out and huge rooms, the personal touches and amazing service really made our time in Wanaka even more special. Great central location and wow what a view, we look forward to celebrating our anniversary in this beautiful place. Thank you so much for everything. Karly & Joel

We booked a 3 bedroom apartment . The place is quite new and clean with very good location. Don't forget to request for a lake view room, the view is spectacular !
Has cooking facility with reasonable size kitchen.

Overall, I would recommend this place.

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

With our central location, we are very popular with guests to Wanaka.

All of our apartments have spectacular lake and mountain views. With four levels to choose from, the lower level has not only views, but also direct access to the pool; many of our guests our regular visitors to the pool at the moment, with these high summer temperatures. As you move up the levels, the views do improve, with the top fourth floor Penthouse apartments providing fantastic views.

Built in 2002, our constant refurbishment programme ensures the apartments keep up their 'new' look.

Thanks again for reviewing and recommending our apartments and we hope to welcome you back to Wanaka and to Lakeside Apartments.

Had a five night stay ( family of 3 plus Grandmother) in a huge 3 bedroom apartment at this lovely location. Could not fault anything! We were on the lower level just steps to the pool. Had lovely lake views and very quick access into town( no need for a car most days) Everything about the apartment was perfect- size, comfort of beds, cleanliness- they have thought of everything. Initially thought it may be a little noisy as it was the room next to reception but we didn't hear a thing. Best equipped kitchen I have ever had in a rental apartment. Didn't catch the managers name but he was a really nice and helpful guy. The cafe and Thai restaurant next door were also very good. It may not be the cheapest place in town but we definitely felt we had value for money. Look forward to a return visit.

Thank you for taking the time to review your family holiday stay at Lakeside Apartments and we are pleased to hear you had such a lovely time in Wanaka.

Yes, we certainly are known for our spectacular views and the kitchens really are superbly equipped for a family holiday stay. And so central. Indeed the perfect place to stay.

We are having a wonderfully sunny warm week in Wanaka and the lack of wind certainly makes for a perfect evening on the private balconies.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Wanaka for a summer break or in fact, any time of year, Wanaka is spectacular in any season.

Ours was described as a 2nd floor "de luxe" apartment, & this was very apt, for luxurious it certainly was. Ultra modern with every facility you could possibly need & a comprehensively equipped kitchen. It was stylish, spotlessly clean & enjoyed a wonderful view from its sunny (afternoon & evening) balcony. There was even a communal barbecue provided.
One is hard put to think of any negatives, but guess that if you are wanting a peaceful afternoon sunbathing on your balcony, you could find the happy, but slightly noisy children in the pool a slight distraction - unless you were used to it like many of us Grandparents!
However all things considered, this establishment gets 10 out of 10 from us & our sincere thanks for a most enjoyable stay.

Although we only spent one night here, the apartment/room was huge, modern and looked new. We had a nice view of Lake Wanaka and the hotel was well situated and an easy walk to restaurants and shops. There was a private 1 car garage included. Our room on the ground floor had direct access to the pool area (and hence street) via the rooms veranda. I really find it hard to fault this hotel (although I thought there were more interesting towns in NZ than Wanaka).
Although it unlikely we will ever return to Wanaka, I would definitely consider staying there again if we did.

Room Tip: The rooms on higher floors probably have a better view, but no direct access to pool and street

My family (wife and 2 little girls) and my father-in-law spent two nights around X-mas.

Apt was spotless: clean, great amenities, very spacious (we took the three BR apt), and location is unparalleled. Wi-fi worked v well and we were v happy with the service.
