My husband and 2 daughters (aged 7 & 5) stayed at Alta Apartments for our girls' first trip to the snow. Vicki, the Manager, is welcoming, attentive and committed to her guests having a lovely time. Email communication with her prior to our arrival was prompt and helpful. We were very impressed with the apartment when we arrived and we... More

I would come back here anyday. The service was impeccable and apartment was spotless and has all your daily needs from kitchenware to laundromat. A++++++ great heating as well for those who visit in the winter. And beds were amazingly comfy

I stayed here with my partner and friends for a week during the RWC 2011. The apartment was spotless when we arrived. Very spacious and comfortable. We had been travelling non stop for two weeks so it was so nice to have somewhere as nice as home to settle in for a few days. It is walking distance from the... More

We stayed at Alta for 5 nights- it was modern, clean and a very spacious apartment with a spectacular view of the lake and Alps as well as only being a 10minute walk into the heart of Queenstown. The kitchen was well equipped so we could buy grocery's and make anything we desired instead of eating out every meal. The... More

We stayed 4 nights here in Summer on a Tiki tour from Brisbane. Check-in was great - our plane arrived late and we didn't get there until 10pm. The keys were in a dropbox waiting for us and we went to reception in the morning to sort out the paperwork. The rooms are really roomy and the entire place was... More

Just got back from Queenstown New Zealand, all I can say is WOW! Queenstown is a beautiful holiday destination. I went there on business for 4 days I wish I went for longer. I was booked in to Alta Apartments about 10 to 15 minute stroll away from the city centre of Queenstown, and believe me this is a convenience... More

The previous reports are all accurate. The view from the upstairs is lovely, but you can't guarantee you will get this. You may be looking at the house next door. They are a long way from the centre of town, at least 15 min walk up a fairly steep hill. This got a bit tiresome if you wanted to go... More

Stayed for 2 nights while in business. Apartments were described as luxury... Definitely not what I imagined. Overall the room was clean and roomy. A few things I didn't like. -no office people to welcome me. Only a key in a drop box saying office manager works 9-11am... -tv is smaller than my laptop monitor(will upload pic if I can)... More

I just recently stay at the Alta Apartments in Queenstown. This was my 4th time staying at the apartments. This trip my family shared a 3 bedroom apartment. The apartments themselves are spacious, well maintained and clean. I always look forward to staying in Queenstown and will definitely stay at Alta again on our next trip.

The 'stunning views' were way off in the distance. We had a great view of the roof of the house below. And we had to keep the curtains closed in the main bedroom as people in that same run-down house could look straight in. Maintenance was obviously not a priority for the apartment owners - the door of the microwave... More
