We had high expectations for Lakeside and it lived up to them.
The hotel itself had about as good a location as possible. Right in the heart of Wanaka, on the waterfront with amazing views. For a family, it's excellent with a pool and the dinosaur playground across the street. (I do wish pool was better heated though).
We were able to walk to all of our meals and activities in Wanaka, except Roy's Peak hike) which was nice.
The units were apartments. Full kitchen and living room, large bedrooms, washer dryer and huge deck with hot tub and stunning views. Just couldn't ask for a better unit. Was clean and in newish condition. Kitchen had everything you needed to cook even though we didn't cook much because of the restaurant options in Wanaka.
Wifi was excellent which was a rarity in New Zealand and I commend them for that.
About the only suggestion I could offer was supplying paper towels or napkins - would be better to help folks keep apartment cleaner.
They were also kind enough to accept rental bikes that were dropped off for us. They also suggested a babysitting service which worked out great.
I would recommend highly to anyone.
