Lakeside Apartments
Ranked #1 of 20 Hotels in Wanaka
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 March 2012

We had three nights at Lakeside Apartments and could have stayed much longer. Beautifully appointed, very spacious apartments, with spectacular views from the balcony plus a very helpful, friendly staff made this a top spot to stay on the South Island. We had a huge apartment on the second floor which had the advantage of great views without passing traffic and it meant the balconies were shaded by the balcony above. The inclusion of a fully equiped laundry in the apartment with a drier but also a large airing rack was very useful when you are on a road trip around the country. This really is a fabulous property in a perfect position in Wanaka.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have the better view and not so close to the pool.

We stayed here for 1 night and we wish we could have stayed longer and made use of the facilities available to us. We can't rave about this place enough. HUGE apartments, immaculately clean, friendly helpful hosts and spectacular views make this place a must stay on your trip through Wanaka.

Lakeside Apartments are in a prime position for both the amazing scenery and views of the lake and mountains and for being close to the town centre and the many activities available in Wanaka. The apartments are well appointed with everything you need for a holiday experience. We had a large apartment on the third floor, with large deck, plenty of outdoor seating and lovely large picture windows. The kitchen was more than adequately equipped and the dining area was large and spacious, athough slightly dark. The rates arent cheap but then you are in a prime spot - we didnt need to go far - just sitting watching the lake and the moods of the mountains is relaxing in itself. If you are seeking a spacious accommodation in a good location, you cant beat Lakeside.

Room Tip: The corner suites are larger and have all round views alhough I would tend to go for the suites furt...

Arrived in Wanaka and by chance found ourselves viewing lakeside apartments for a 1 night stay. My wife loved it and we found ourselves staying 2 nights in a penthouse suite. Fabulous views, massive terrace, own BBQ and hot tub and a comfortable bed and luxury fittings. Gary and his team are great people. Best stay in 4 week tour of NZ

Stayed two nights with family in 3 bedroom apartment on 3rd floor. Apartment is very good size, with master bedroom and living room both offering direct balcony access and panoramic views of lake and mountains. Fully equipped with all mod-cons, right down to under-floor heating and spa tub in second bathroom. High quality fittings and furniture, very new. All the sky channels on tv, free wi-fi included. Stones-throw from the main shopping and restaurants in town. Kids playground across the street (great for my two young ones). Free and secure parking. Nice heated swimming pool and hot tub on site. Friendly staff.
Easily the best place we stayed in New Zealand.

We stayed here for a week in Feb. A good place for a "get-away" type of vacation. It's a service apartment, so what we needed was a place with all amenities like home. Apartment was very spacious. Nice big bright bathroom. Almost all supplies and facilities were sufficient. Nice washer/dryer. Bed was super comfortable. Good TV with multiple channels. Nice bath products. Has microwave & oven, dishes, pots & pans. Lacking in cutlery: only one little chopping knife, no vegetable peeler.

Apartment is serviced everyday and cleaning crew are great. Nice view of mountain & lake from the unit. There's a children's park across the street so sometimes the children's playing noises get quite loud, but mostly it's ok. We were on the first floor and I like it better than on a higher floor. We can walk directly to the swimming pool and the grill...would be more inconvenient on higher floors. Nice balcony to eat dinner outside while watching sunset.
