No lake view as we were in studio apartment,all at the back with a car park view. Very clean, good beds, small, nice bathroom. Could not believe there was no sink in the 'so-called' kitchenette. So the only way you could wash up pots was to take a plastic bowl into the bathroom, fill it from the bathroom sink, balance...

Thank you for taking time to write a review and for the positive aspects you have outlined. In all our advertising including on third party websites and booking engines we endeavour to point out that the studios do not have views, to the point of naming the other type of rooms Lake View rooms, we also usually send out letters...

Gorgeous view from a "1 Br lake view suite." Balcony overlooking Queenstown harbour and lake. Very modern, clean and comfortable. Full kitchen and gas fireplace. 2 sofas, dining room table for 4. Washing machine in apt suite as well. Too nice to leave for dinner out- excellent lamb meal from Pedro's Lamb delivered instead. Would highly recommend this apartment complex....

We arrived at Highview Apts having one night left in our campervan but with no reservation thereafter and really struggling to find somewhere as Queenstown was so busy and accommodation hard to find. On arrival Jenny looked after us right away and was very understanding as to our situation too complicated to explain. She booked us in for two nights...

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...
