What can I say? This place has it all! Great design, en-suite and bathroom, full kitchen with full size fridge, undercover parking, comfortable beds, more than adequate crockery and cutlery. Only two minutes walk to the CBD shops and restaurants and the lake is across the road.

My sister and I were traveling in New Zealand and stayed in the Lakeside Apartments while we spent time in Wanaka. The hotel itself is located right across the street from the Lake and in very near distance to all of the restaurants and sights in town. The apartments are beautiful and very clean. We loved the lake view and...

Almost on the water and right next to the CBD, these apartments are arguably in the best location in Wanaka. Inside, the rooms are plush spacious and quiet. Our room had a gorgeous view over the lake. This is clearly a well run hotel and I recommend it highly.

We were traveling NZ South Island on a self-drive holiday and ended up in Wanaka on a Friday evening leading in to a busy ski weekend in town. Based on reviews and a 'vacancy' sign, we walked up to the Lakeside. We were warmly greeted and shown an apartment available for the night (upgraded to a higher floor). We did...

My family have come here every New Years for around 5 years. The apartments are spacious with great facilities. They are in best location and everything is very accessible. The option of an apartment with a view or those poolside with a gate suits all. Very much recommended!!

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us.

Our family of 5 came here for a ski holiday. The spacious apartments had everything we needed. Warm, comfortable rooms to rest in, a spa pool to soothe the tired muscles, easy walking to a variety of restaurants, shops and the great Paradiso Cinema.
