We had a beautiful Lake view apartment at Highview and the quality of the facilities was excellent. The apartment is well designed and excellent for a summer or winter stay. There is a charming balcony as well as a gas fire for chillier nights. There is a small gym and spa for use. The only down sides are that there...

We stayed for 2 nights in a 2-bedroom unit with lake view. The view of the lake and mountains was spectacular. The apartment was spacious, modern and comfortable for our 2 couples. The fireplace was an unexpected amenity. The location was only a 10-minute walk to the CBD, which was perfect for our active group. The ample, free, off-street parking...

If staying here make sure you pay the higher price for the rooms overlooking the lake. The studio room looks back over the carpark and if you are claustrophobic be aware as the room is very small (fits bed and one chair) and not much capacity for preparing any food if this is what you want. We always like to...

We stayed for 4 nights on the top floor apartment with a lake view. (Tip: it's well worth asking for this when booking). The apartment was just perfect - clean, comfy beds, quiet and the kitchen was well equipped. We asked the couch to be made into an extra bed for our two kids, and a room divider wall separated...

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights. The apartments are within walking distance from CBD (less than 1Km) which saved me the trouble of driving and parking in QT. The apartments facing the lake offer magnificent view with their own deck and outside private seating. Private parking also meant I didn't have to worry about a parking space during...

We travel regularly to Queenstown at this time of year. Last few times we have stayed at the same place, but this year we thought we would try something different. These apartments are top notch, well laid out, clean and luxurious. If you don't mind paying a little more than average we would recommend this as a great family apartment....

We booked the Highview Apartments for 6 days and really enjoyed our stay. They have everything you need whether you want to cook in or eat out and there are great views over the lake and surrounding mountains. The apartment has a corridor kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom at the rear and sitting room and balcony area at the front overlooking...

Lovely one bedroom apartment with stunning views(apt 204). Good kitchen facilities, serviced daily, ample free parking and a short walk to the town centre, gondola etc. Manageress very helpful. Downside is having to sign into wifi every 10 minutes if not used which is a bore

Julie and Jenny were very welcoming and helpful on reception. We stayed 4 nights here and had an excellent view of the lake and city from the room and balcony. One whole wall had sliding glass doors opening right across.There are other rooms which have a view of the car park and these may be cheaper, but to have had...
