We had the pleasure of staying here in January for 4 nights, it was fantastic. beautiful apartments with amazing views and quality well thought out rooms. We could not fault this place. Anything we needed was seen to and with a smile. The pool is wonderful and it wouldn't be hard to stay for longer. Spotlessly clean and well looked after, can wait to go back, thanks

They are a bit pricey but this was the best apartment of our trip around South Island. Everything is top quality and any difficulties you might encounter will be quickly dealt with by the very efficient and charming manager. Stunning views from every apartment from what we could see. Top floor is obviously best, only problem we had on ground floor was nearby kiddie pool with screaming brats whose useless parents were ignoring them. Just our luck, otherwise damn near perfection.

Room Tip: Away from kiddie pool

This apartment hotel was the best in our 2 week stay in New Zealand. We only stayed here 2 nights but wished we had planned to stay longer. The views of the lake were lovely, the pool and barbecue enjoyable and the apartment itself was beautiful, immaculate and very comfortable. We booked this contemporary 2 bedroom/2 bath apartment with another couple and we both had plenty of room to ourselves while enjoying the shared living/kitchen space. The kitchen was especially well equipped with high end products, the dishwasher was an added bonus as was the washer and dryer. My favorite part of the apartment though was that the living room and master bedroom both opened onto a large terrace with a table and chairs as well as chaise lounges, and since we were on the end, the terrace extended around the side as well. Lots of glass and light, but since the draperies were lined with a blackout fabric, sleeping was also wonderful. Everything was actually perfect in this hotel and I cannot give it a high enough rating!

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms open up to the pool, hot tub and BBQ areas. All of them appear to face the l...

We had a penthouse for 2 people to make the most of the stunning views in Wanaka and it was HUGE! Only the bedroom accommodation was for 2, the rest of the apartment was for 8. It was equipped to a very highs standard with 2 bathrooms and a hot tub on the equally huge terrace which also included a gas BBQ, loungers and table and chairs. The apartment was impersonal compared to the fabulous hosted lodges available in NZ but it was a nice change to be completely private in a town which has so much to offer. The wine tour by Ridgeline was great, as was our meal at the next door restaurant The Landing. Soul Food round the corner did great breakfasts and the best cup of tea ever with loose leaves and granny's old china. The apartments come with a designated parking spot (a garage in our case) wifi and every kitchen facility imaginable. They are expensive ($600 a night) but very spacious and luxurious and I would stay there again. There is a swimming pool on the ground level at the front of the property and communal bbqs to use.

Room Tip: Indulge in a top floor penthouse for great views and a hot tub on the terrace,

This is the second time we have stayed at Lakeside and once again we were not disappointed - it offers a great location, awesome views, immaculately clean apartments, grounds and pool area and is a real home away from home

Could not recommend more highly

Our second time at Lakeside, it's just difficult to fault. Blair and Gary are excellent hosts, nothing is a problem. The accomodation itself is superb and immaculately presented - can't be faulted. Facilities are second to none and extremely well maintained. Even the location is perfect, everything is walking distance, view from the balcony over Lake Wanaka is stunning, there's always something to watch. We're already planning next years' visit !!!

Thanks again to Blair and Gary for making us feel so welcome. Well worth the 24 hour flight from the UK !!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room price with no servicing, the guys are very flexible with pricing. Even though we took...

Many thanks for taking your time to review Lakeside Apartments and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay.

Regarding your comment on the no servicing – yes we are always happy to accommodate guests needs and although daily servicing is standard, not everyone wants this level of service so Gary and Blair are happy to be flexible.

We are pleased with your heading comment ‘Best accommodation in NZ’ – in the current 2013 Trip Advisor travellers reviews we were awarded second most luxurious hotel in New Zealand!

Thanks again for the review and we look forward to welcoming you back to Lakeside Apartments when you next escape from the UK.

You have to see the size of the apartment to believe it! And so beautifully appointed I could move in permanently. The location is fabulous - with gorgeous views over the mountains and the lake and within walking distance to the lakefront, shops, cafes etc. When we arrived the very sweet receptionist first showed my husband where to park in the little garage each apartment has and then showed us to our apartment. She explained that each apartment is the same with three bedrooms and two bathrooms but as we were just a couple they lock the unneeded rooms leaving the master bedroom and en suite, the full size kitchen, dining area and lounge room for us as a couple to use.

This was on the pricey side but worth every cent. One of the very best places I have ever stayed in. Highly recommend.
