Wanaka is an awesome town. What made it even more special was where we stayed. Lakeside apartments were comfortable, clean, perfectly positioned and the staff are so accommodating. Nothing was a problem. Highly recommended. A big thank you to Gary. Will definitely stay there on our next next trip.

We had a 3 bedroom apartment. It was comfortable and spacious. Unit was clean and in excellent condition. We had a functionin kitchen and appliances make a difference to a family considering we've stayed at several places and all of the appliances (except the kettle) had problems. If you want to stay a few days Lakeside is a great option...

This was one of the best stays in NZ. We stayed in a 2 bedroom poolside apartment for 3 nights with our daughter and partner. It was enormous and had everything we needed and more. It was beautifully furnished, clean, modern and comfortable. There was even a laundry room which came at the right time in our month long trip....

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...

We stayed in a 3 bedroom pool side apartment for 6 nights. The kitchen is so well equipped that you can just cook whatever you would in your own home. The laundry is a huge bonus and the space just wonderful. This accommodation is just like having your own luxury holiday home. One of the best run establishments I have...

The view, the living environment and the hospitality are superb! Gorgeous view of the lake and mountains. Modern, spotless and...

Pleasantly surprised by the size of the apartment- great location, great views, great pool- wished we had stayed longer in Wanaka and less time in Queenstown. Check in was a bit brusque not did the job.

what's with all the static in the apartment? everywhere we touched (door handles, light switches, etc) all had static and we ended up with a phobia at the end of the stay. Thankfully it was just for one night! Great location, walking distance to town and a great view of the lake. On a clear night, you'll see plenty of...

The apartments are well kitted out. Beds are comfy, showers nice, and views over lake are completely spectacular. Will definitely go back to Wanaka and will stay at Lakeside Apartments. Thoroughly recommend.
