Gorgeous large apartment with stunning views

We highly recommend this apartment hotel with a family. Great location, brilliant pool for the kids and large enough for a family of 5. We will be back.

Lovely apartment right near Lake Wanake

Pros: Spacious, light and really clean with everything we needed including washing machine and dryer
Location: The walk up to a Rob Roy Glacier was amazing! We also really enjoyed Ruby's cinema, the pub at Cardrona and Arrowtown
We really enjoyed our stay at Lakeside Apartments. The view across the lake changed throughout the day as the light played on the water. It was lovely to be able to leave the car behind and walk into the village for coffee, dinner and drinks. The large kitchen in our apartment was well equipped with everything we needed to cook meals when we wanted to stay in! Great support by the staff - really friendly!
