This was one of the few apartments we stayed in during our 21-day trip to New Zealand, and we enjoyed our stay there. The apartment we had had a wonderful view of the lake, plus a small but cozy veranda. The apartment itself was furnished in a "Scandinavian" sort of way -- square, angular furniture. The bathroom had a heated...

It did take a couple of days of low cloud before we could enjoy the lake view but the apartment had everything we could need and was as luxurious as we had hoped. It IS a healthy walk to the town but perfectly manageable. You will need a taxi if you have more than hand baggage and are not hiring...

I stayed here recently with a group of girlfriends before and after walking the Milford track. We were able to store our suitcases here whilst our on the track. These are serviced apartments and it is not a hotel so the office is only open during business hours. I stayed in different rooms in the same apartment which are either...

Really lovely! Close to The city and a really Good apartment/hotel. The beds and The bathroom were amazing. We really enjoyed ourselves. Parking lots was there plenty off and the staff was really helpful and friendly. Ask the staff and they will help you with tours and other things to do in the beautiful Queenstown.

Beautiful location, with stunning lake views and over the Remarkables. Well equipped apartments, clean and good check in and out service. Fifteen minute walk up steep hill from the town, which might not be good for some. Paintwork in the apartments looking very tired.

We flew in to Queenstown from the UK after an extended series of flights and needed a place to recover before beginning our 6 week adventure 'down under'. We could not have chosen better. We picked up our hire car at the airport and drove straight to the apartment. We had taken trouble to make sure the view really was...

Beautiful location. Views to die for. Sitting on your balcony overlooking the lake was a pure pleasure. Facilities were good and very clean and the staff excellent and helpful. A gentle ten minute stroll to all the shops and restaurants on the harbour side though a little longer coming back up the hill. Heh we're in our late sixties and...

A big thank you to all the staff at this establishment right from our initial enquiry, booking and arrival:) Very helpful!! We requested a high floor apartment with mountain/lakeside views and when we arrived we were totally blown away by the scenery which made the mountains look like they were standing out in 3D. The apartment itself, clean, well equipped...

Stayed a night after booking a 2 bedroom apartment. Was disappointed to be given a studio apartment with adjoining room. The configuration was funny and make it difficult to coordinate movement between the friends staying. However view was good of the lake. Room well appointed and the facilities including microwave and fridge and cooking facilities are very complete. Quite a...
