Unfortunately we only had one night due to flight changes but we will definitely be returning. Amazing views; beautifully appointed apartment, comfy beds. Felt very spoilt. Planning on a returning during ski season and can't wait!

We stayed in apartment 306 for two nights, and I have to say that I wish we could have stayed a week. The view is stunning and the apartment nicely furnished and spotless. The large balcony with sun loungers, and table and chairs made for a delightful spot to enjoy the incredible view. This is a large, comfortable unit with...

Thank you for your thorough review of Lakeside Apartments. We are finding many of our guests stay longer than anticipated, especially when they realize that we are within an hours drive of Queenstown and the many delights of Central Otago are on your doorstep. Perfect for day trips. There is certainly plenty to keep you occupied for a week or...

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, everything was perfect. We had a third-floor apartment (there is a lift) with great views over Lake Wanaka and the surrounding mountains. The apartment is huge and beautifully appointed. The kitchen is really well-equipped. We made full use of this, deciding to eat in each night to take advantage of...

We stayed in the Lakeside Apartments for 3 nights in a penthouse apartment. The apartments are very nice with a massive deck overlooking the lake. The hot tub was used extensively to unwind after three great days. The room included laundry and a full kitchen. My only quibble was that the level of water in the hot tub should have...

We had a 1 night stay in one of the penthouse apartments with our toddler. From the very start, the service was exceptional! Very friendly and welcoming, we couldn't have asked for more. The apartment was absolutely perfect! It was hugely spacious, and it's nice to have the 3 different bedrooms seperate enough so that if they're all used you're...

Thank you for taking the time to write an extensive review of your stay at Lakeside Apartments. So many of our guests are truly surprised at the spaciousness of our apartments, but they are what the images depict; luxurious spacious apartments with spectacular views of the lake, from every apartment. The Penthouse apartments on the top floor are larger than...

This place is worth staying at. Excellent view of the lake, great location and quality accommodation. The apartment is spacious, clean and comfortable. The bed is comfy, the bathroom clean and the kitchen is massive. There is a big balcony overlooking the lake. It's a very short walk across the main road to the town centre. Good for couples and...

We stayed here only one night before going on to Queenstown. We paid for a one bedroom apartment but were treated to a 3 or 4 bedroom apartment (I forget which), albeit with the additional bedrooms locked. Nonetheless, we had plenty of extra room. Our main motivation for renting an apartment here was to have ability to do our own...

Thank you for your review and for staying with us at Lakeside Apartments. All our apartments have three bedrooms. The master (with ensuite) is at the front of the property, facing the lake, as does the lounge area. The second and third bedrooms are locked off if not needed, along with a second bathroom. So if there are two guests...

Our second floor apartment was superbly laid out with a fabulous kitchen and dining area with a separate lounge room that could be closed off. As other reviewers have noticed, it was impeccably clean and the fixtures and fittings were the highest quality. The spectacular views could be seen from the living area and main bedroom and the huge balcony...

Thank you for taking the time to submit your detailed review; always good to hear we are meeting customer expectations. Spring has bought the usual interesting weather patterns and the views across the lake are wonderful come rain or shine and as you say, the sun setting over the mountains gives plenty of entertainment from the balcony.

3rd floor units are recently renovated and very nice with a huge living area and massive patio. Walking to restaurants and grocery store is about a 4-5 minute walk. Incredible lake views and a perfect apartment (and a HUGE 60" ?? TV).

Thank you for your review and you are correct, earlier this year we renovated our third floor Premier Apartments. The complex was built in 2002 and we regularly refresh and renovate the units to keep them luxurious and modern. Yes the TV is massive - over 50 inches!!! But the view is more spectacular.
