Only had one night in this beautiful place. Premier Elite Studio was massive and had a really highly spec. Everything was in pristine condition. Great location and good value for money.

This apartment style accommodation is everything you could wish for. The location is easy walking distance to the centre of town, giving you access to cafes, restaurants, a large supermarket among other speciality shops.

The accommodation is modern, clean and extremely livable. The full size kitchen allows you to be self sufficient if you like. The loungeroom opens up to a view of the onsite pool and Lake Wanaka. The bedroom and bathroom were also very comfortable and clean. There is a laundry located inside the apartment.

The caretakers are also very friendly and approachable. I would highly recommend this property!

Room Tip: Advise staying in an apartment above ground floor for a great view of the lake.

We stayed for a few nights and enjoyed our stay, however on our last night we were kept awake by the people in the room above enjoying a party. This was not very pleasant as they were using our deck below as a bathroom and ashtray. Before this I would have said our stay was great but this really changed my opinion. From the way they were speaking and the coming and going for most of the night it sounded as if it was a local group of people.

Thank you for your feedback of your stay at Lakeside Apartments, which we can see, the last night, was not as enjoyable as you had hoped for.

We normally ask guests to notify us of any concerns during their stay, so we have every opportunity to rectify any issues. We would be very grateful if you could email us the dates of your stay and your apartment number, so we can ascertain what actually occurred and, if necessary, put procedures in place to ensure this does not happen again.

We did have a problem with one Penthouse Apartment over the weekend of the Rippon Music Festival (4th and 5th February) where unfortunately we had to involve the police. Some guests did inform us they were inconvenienced and, by way of apology we gave them an instant 50% refund on the cost of their stay.

We hope that we can welcome you back to Lakeside Apartments in the future and thank you again for your review.

We recently stayed in a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom penthouse for 3 nights. The property was ideal for 3 couples, perfect location, 1st class amenities including the pool and common areas. The owner was always available and clearly knows how to offer hospitality and what it involves including local knowledge. Suggestions of the best coffee shops and restaurants were spot on.
We travelled around the South Island for 13 days and Wanaka was our favourite place made much more memorable because of our stay at Lakeside Apartments. We certainly hope to return.

Room Tip: Sorry can't help - we just loved the 4th level penthouse with stunning view but I would stay in...

Wanaka was the last stop of our week-long trip, so we were relatively tired when we arrived. As we were checking in, we were told by the reception that because they were very busy and that they were fully booked, they have upgraded our apartment from a 2-bedroom one to a penthouse, free of charge. Needless to say that we were all very pleasantly surprised. The staff showed us to our apartment, and it was absolutely stunning. Although it was a free upgrade from a much cheaper apartment, we had all the luxuries of the penthouse: wireless and wired broadband, a magnificent balcony with a stunning view over the lake, a spa pool, etc. There are also a swimming pool and two barbecues for all the guests to freely use. Not only was the room itself beautiful, the room cleaning was incredible. We happened to still be in the apartment when the staff came around to clean, and it took them about 10-15 minutes from start to finish, leaving our room perfectly tidy again. The location was fantastic too, overlooking the lake, as well as being conveniently close to shops, restaurants, the supermarket and the rest. Overall, the experience was simply overwhelming and fantastic.

Thank you for your feedback of the accommodation at Lakeside Apartments, which obviously was a winner in the last few days of your holiday.

Thank you also for acknowledging the great work of our housekeeping staff. We pride ourselves on our great staff; most of whom have been with us for many years. They do a fantastic job at keeping up the high standard of cleanliness we require here at Lakeside Apartments, as well as looking after our guests.

Not everyone is lucky enough to receive a free upgrade to a Penthouse Apartment but you were obviously pleased with yours and aren’t the extensive balconies just amazing in those apartments.

We had booked a 2 bedroom apartment with a lakeside view for 4 adults. On arriving we found the town filled to capacity due to a Triathalon but we had been upgraded to a higher floor that gave us better views!! Great location - with stunning views of Lake Wanaka and minutes from the shops and a convenient supermarket. Very helpful front desk. Though we didn't have time to use it, the pool, spa and BBQ area looked great - very clean and well cared for.
The rooms were comfortable and for us the highlight was the huge balcony where we spent most of our time and which overlooked the lake.
Very well provided kitchen facilites which we used to dish up our takeaway meal - eaten on the deck.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views. Also corner suites have a wrap around balcony.
