Our family of 5 booked a 3 bedroom villa for 3 nights. We stayed in villa #13. We arrived in Queenstown in the evening, after the front office had closed. They left a key for us, and we managed to find the villa with no problems. The villa is on 3 levels, with 1 bedroom at the entry level on...

Thanks for your lovely review. We do provide all guest amenities for free, including laundry powder, so there's no need to buy your own when you stay with us. Also we have a deal with Green Cabs - a flat rate of $12.00 to town instead of $15. We usually mention this when guest check in. We hope to see...

LOVED this place from the moment we arrived. Stayed for 4 nights over Christmas. Location is just stunning, views of the lake and mountains right outside our door. Room itself was very very modern, and had all that we needed and more. Main bed and sofa bed extremely comfortable. Great size, kitchen fully equipped. Heated floor in bathroom such a...

Thank you so much for your lovely review. The dish washers in the 1 Bedroom Suites are all new. They are a little dishdrawer system and we are always happy to help guests using appliances if they are having any trouble. We do provide a pot mit for handling hot items in the kitchen, but maybe this was overlooked as...

Our stay at the villa del Lago in October 2016 was a truly wonderful experience; made possible by luxurious accommodation which offered a first class view of Lake Wakatipu every which way you turned; and is close to all major attractions. Add to this, the warm hospitality extended by lovely and most affable hosts Charlotte and Nic (who recommended and...

Villa del Lago is the best place in Queenstown to stay. It has a modern kitchen, an ultra modern bathroom with heated floors & a fantastic fireplace. Best part is the view of Lake Wakatipu and mountains behind it. Will surely go back there in our next visit to Queenstown.

We stayed at Villa Del Lago twice in December 2016 and loved it. Great views of the lake, attentive service, and full facilities (dishwasher, washing machine and drier). Villa Del Lago is within walking distance to Queenstown. To avoid the Queenstown traffic, take the lakeside walking track.

Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic!! We have travelled all over the world and this would be one of the best accommodation hotels/resorts we have ever stayed in. Our one bedroom apartment was well appointed with everything we could want plus providing stunning views over the lake and to the mountains.

Checked in to our one bedroom apartment a few hours early...as house keeping was finishing tidying our room. Receptionist/property manager saw to it that our room was made ready promptly (she runs a right shift) and offered spot-on recommendations of local activities and restaurants in the meantime. Once ready, she showed us to our room. Stunning views. Amazing balcony. Right...

We stayed at Villa Del Lago as part of our honeymoon. The suite we stayed in was beautifully appointed and perfect for our needs. The free laundry facilities were particularly welcome during our long trip. Charlotte and the team made us feel very welcome by decorating the bedroom and providing us with some treats.

Great views of the lake and mountains. Great rooms and amenities with great room service. Great customer service. Close to the walking trail and a good walk into the town centre. Deck area to sit and relax and check out the view.

I stayed at this hotel for 10 days in Nov 2016. It was presented as a quiet secluded spot with great view of the lake and mountains. And this is exactly what it is. The staff were friendly and the facilities very good. The only note of caution which I would sound is that people who will have difficulty with...

Thank you for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Yes, we are on a steep site with great views, but this does mean that all of our apartments have stairs.
