To enjoy Wanaka and all it has to offer. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment on the third floor that had a very large patio with lounge chair and also a dining table. The apartment was nicely decorated and had a full kitchen and washer/dryer. It did front the main road, but just used a sound machine at night...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. 2 nights at the beginning of our stay and one night at the end, in a different but nearly identical apartment. We loved Wanaka and the town but the apartments were so nice we spent every night at home enjoying dinner on our spacious lakefront balcony. The apartments are very nicely furnished...

Lakeside apartments was definitely the best accommodation of our NZ holiday. We had a gorgeous apartment with our private terrace overlooking the pool and marvellous view of the lake. It was very well equipped, very spacious and spotless. It's so convenient to everything. Right in town on a busy road but very quiet at night and you don't hear a...

What a fantastic find. We are definitely coming back! Lakeside sits on a relatively quiet street right in the middle of town - it really is the perfect location. There are four floors; we stayed in a 1BR apartment on the 3rd. It's completely worth it for the absolutely stunning views across Lake Wanaka to the mountains. Our apartment was...

Nice property and strategic lake view position. Big apartment with full kitchen and laundry room in our unit. Very comfortable and nice pool & spa right across the street from the lake/beach. Only negative is no air conditioner or screens on the windows, so it was a bit hot and buggy.

Thanks you for your review. We note your comments about the air conditioning; our summer of very hot days is often so short that air conditioning units are hard to justify. We have fans in each of the apartments for our guests to use. On the third floor we also have external roller blinds to shade the heat of the...

So pleased you enjoyed your stay in our Apartments. With the extended summer, no wind and wonderfully blue sky days, sitting on the balcony watching the lake, is rather special.

Sadly we only booked one night at this wonderful serviced holiday apartment complex! There was nothing to object to. The location is absolutely perfect, on the waterfront just a few minutes walk from the town, it was clean with everything you could need whilst on holiday, the beds were very comfortable and the staff were lovely. I shall hopefully return...
