“Relaxation in Wanaka”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

We had a terrific time at Lakeside.The location is fantastic with the best views of the mountains, and the apartments are expansive and of the highest quality. The staff are friendly and helpful and the facilities are first class. Having a swim in the heated pool after a long day walking or having a drink on your balcony watching the sun set over the mountains was very relaxing.
Absolutely stunning. Richard

After a week in a one-bedroom beach hut in the Cook Islands, my husband decided I needed a taste of luxury. This is it! Our spacious 2nd floor apartment was beautifully furnished and equipped and boasted a balcony with a spectacular view down Lake Wanaka. Reception was welcoming, housekeeping outstanding. I couldn't have been more comfortable.
Lakeside Apartments are not the cheapest in this location (though you might be able to negotiate a little) but proof that, in this instance at least, you really do get what you pay for.
My only small quibble was that, during a spell of extremely hot weather, there was no fan or air-con, perhaps an argument for installing ceiling fans in the bedrooms.

Room Tip: 302-307 probably have the best views.

Thank you for your feedback of your stay at Lakeside Apartments. Cook island beach hut to 5 star luxury in Wanaka – a wonderful combination.

We are pleased your stay was comfortable and you enjoyed the facilities in the Deluxe Apartments, as well as the outstanding housekeeping. Regarding your comment on the hot weather, yes January and February can get very hot in Wanaka. We try to balance between allowing our guests to enjoy the magnificent lake and mountain views from the large balcony (without a large air conditioning box) and feeling comfortable in the hot weather, by the provision of fans; the majority of our apartments have a portable fan in the hallway cupboards. However, since reading your comment we have decided to expand the fans to all apartments.

Hopefully you will be back to Wanaka in the not too distant future to test out the fans. Or try a winter break – the apartments are toasty warm in the winter and you get a spectacular view of the snow capped mountains.

The whole complex is just beautiful and beautifully maintained. Garry and Judy who run the place are very nice making your stay there just pleasant.

The apartments are very spacious, modern, beautifully designed, shiny, and clean.

When you go to the beautiful town of Wanaka don't hesitate, this is THE place to stay in.
Really great value for your money.

Room Tip: If I am not mistaken all suites face the lake side ....

Thank you for your feedback of your stay at Lakeside Apartments, which you clearly enjoyed.

Since taking over the management of these apartments in November 2010 we have strived to ensure the highest standards of cleanliness are maintained. With the dedication of our valued staff we are pleased to receive feedback that we are obviously living up to our goals.

You are not mistaken; all apartments have awesome views of the lake and spectacular mountains of Mount Aspiring National Park beyond.

We have some well needed rain in Wanaka today which will make everything green again after our long hot dry summer.

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay in the spectacular Lakeside Apartments and look forward to your future visit.

A truly enjoyable stay. A warm welcome from the staff and no request too much trouble. The appartment we had on the second floor was large, comfortable, well equipped and impeccably serviced.
The perfect base for exploring an exceptionally beautiful area.

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and our family of 7 adults thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay. The apartment was very clean, very comfortable and roomy, located close to all amenities and the lake view is spectacular. We're now looking forward to our next trip.
