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

First off - the apartments are lovely. Nicely fitted out, well maintained and well provisioned with pretty much everything you need and they have a fantastic view over the lake to the mountains. We had a '3 bedroom' apartment. Explaining how that was made up will explain a lot of the negative comments about various aspects of the apartments that... More

A group of four of us stayed for three nights in the two bedroom apartment and found it great overall. The master bedroom was standard size, however the second bedroom was on the small side but did have great storage to make up for it. A shared bathroom was a bit of though!! The views out of the bedroom and... More

We picked up the key from the office and were shown to the carport/door of our 2 bedroom apartment. There were no instructions inside the apartment, or compendium etc. with information on office hours or contact info if we needed it. We presumed they were serviced apartments but nobody serviced ours the next day. We stayed in apartment 10 (or... More
