If you're looking for an excellent stay, then this must be the accommodation to stay. Vast apartment equipped with the best amenities, and an amazing view on lake wanaka. The bed was so comfy, the toiletries are superb, and the whole place makes you feel at home. And most importantly, it's a walking distance to everything. When in wanaka, consider this your first choice. Whether you're a couple, a family, a group, there is plenty of space of everyone. We enjoyed every moment!

We stayed here for only 1 night (unfortunately - it deserves 2 or three nights). Wanaka is fantastic, and this apartment was perfect. It was MASSIVE - we could happily live in it. The balcony was great, with deck chairs as well as a table and chairs, and it looks out over the beautiful Lake Wanaka. We will definitely come back here.

Believe all the glowing positive reviews. Lakeside in Wanaka is the best serviced apartment we've ever stayed at: location, spacious rooms, full kitchen, clean, comfy beds & sofas, good shower pressure, outstanding views - the list goes on and on.
Three of us stayed here for a bike race recently and couldn't have asked for more - space on the deck for the bikes (we were offered lock up storage as well), spa pool after the race to recover, parking; Blair and the team couldn't be more helpful. Proximity to centre of town hard to beat. We were on the ground level which suited us perfectly. Heated flooring in kitchen and bathrooms - fantastic! Hairdryers in both bathrooms, TVs in the bedrooms as well as the lounge and great selection of channels - even a small tablet in the lounge! Rooms were cleaned daily. Wi-fi worked well, great to have daily newspaper - shall I go on?
Suffice to say we'll be back next year. These guys care about what they provide and it shows. Not the cheapest but great value for money when you consider what's provided - you get what you pay for. You'd have to be pretty darn picky not to enjoy this place. Thanks.

Room Tip: Ground floor units have short cut pedestrian access to town and pools

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Lakeside. We hope you enjoyed the annual bike race.

The ground floor Poolside Apartments are perfect for direct access to the swimming and spa pools and also have outstanding views of the lake and mountains.

We are pleased to hear you are back next year; book early to avoid disappointment!

The Lakeside Serviced Apartments were recommended by our New Zealand friends during our visit to Lake Wanaka (about a 1 hour drive from Queenstown Airport) from United States. We knew the property was highly rated but it exceeded our expectations. The reception from Blair was outstanding - providing us all the information we needed about our unit and the property. He continued to be a friendly source of valuable information during our three day stay. The property is truly five stars, both the unit itself and the common areas - pool, hot tubs, garages, etc. The apartment is enormous, both inside and the deck overlooking the lake - so gorgeous it look like a movie set. We chose the one bedroom, second floor option - there is an elevator. The deck has 2 chaise lounges, a dining table and chairs. The living area, bedroom, kitchen and bath were flawless - large and well equipped.

The property is in the heart of the town - walking distance from shops and restaurants, bike rentals, etc. We rented bikes for a half day and rode in a circuit around the lakefront and river back to the town - relatively flat but scenic and interesting. Another day we drove about 15 miles to Diamond Lake and hiked for a rigorous few hours to an incredible view.

The Lake Wanaka dining was perfect - there is even a wonderful Thai restaurant next door to the hotel, a supermarket within 100 yards and coffee shops and and ale house a little further away. Too bad NZ is so far away or we would make this a more regular stop.

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter and have better views, buth the first floor has direct access to the pool/hot tubs.

Thank you for your very thorough review of Lakeside Apartments.

We are pleased to hear our usual standard service was well received and the Apartments exceeded your expectations.

All our luxurious apartments face the lake so have wonderful views of Lake Wanaka and the snowy peaks of Mount Aspiring National Park.
