“often imitated, never replicated”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

highly recommended, top facilities, only 2 mins walk from all amenities. wake up to 180 views of snowy peaks emerging out of the deep blue lake.

spa, heated pool and jacuzzi and barbeque with lakeside views

expensive and tastefully furnished rooms with private balconies directly overlooking the water

kitchens Martha Stewart would approve of, scanpan cutlery. spotlessly maintained

friendly, attentive and obliging proprietor Blair and his team will ensure you lack for nothing.

impressive attention to detail, down to activity recommendations private garages, ski drying rooms, laundry , selection of international adapters, baby-siting arrangements

i came to wanaka intending to ski, but couldn't drag myself away from Lakeside and its' picturesque vistas

i've been through my share of top notch accommodation, but few come close. 10/10 across the board. intended to stay 3 days, ended up as 3 weeks

Stayed August 2012, travelled solo

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Lakeside Apartments. You obviously enjoyed our luxurious and spacious apartments in the centre of the village.

We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and all those little things, like warming up the apartment, add up, allowing the guest to enjoy their stay that much more.

The lake and mountain views are pretty spectacular and every apartment has the awesome view from their balcony, master bedroom and the lounge.

Sometimes a two night stay is just not enough so we look forward to welcoming you back to Lakeside Apartments for a few days longer in the not-too-distant future.

Spacious apartments, an owner/manager with an attention to detail that is outstanding, and everyday cleaning service that is well above standards for an apartment. Free cable TV, well-appointed kitchen and a location that could not be better. In overall, good value for money, highly recommended.

The location is excellent, huge apartments and very well appointed kitchen, amazing views of the mountains and Lake Wanaka. The spa pools were lovely to soak in after a hard day skiing. It is the perfect place to stay.

We stayed 8 nights at the Lakeside Apartments, and found everything to be outstanding. The location is ideal if you don't have a car. Directly across the road from the visitor information centre and restaurants and cafes next door and a short walk into the main street (2 min away). The views are amazing, overlooking the lake and the mountains, waking up to that view each morning was a perfect start to the day.
The apartments are very well fitted out with all the mod cons you could want, including free wifi, heated floor and towel warmers! The rooms are impeccably clean, almost making them look brand new! The rooms are serviced each day and cleaned back to new. We really liked the open plan design of the kitchen / dining and tv sitting area, again, overlooking the lake.
There is a pool and spa out the front which we didnt go in, but they looked clean and would be nice in summer.
It;s not the cheapest place in town, but its worth every cent. We rate it as one of the best places we have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: They are all great, but the higher to floor, the better the view obviously
