Great location. Clean room. Friendly enough staff. TV2 didn't work, and was not repaired on my request although I was informed it would be looked at. Bathroom heater didn't work. Dim light bulbs in the unit, inadequate for any detailed work. Good heating. No view from downstairs unit. Single bed's only in my unit, seemed small, but was adequate. Good... More

Lake view unit on the top floor. The unit was clean well equipped with all you require. The bed was comfortable. The staff friendly and well informed. The easy walk to town to restaurants was a bonus. Even though this is an older motel it has been well maintained and looked after. I would recommend this to families, couples, and... More

We stayed in one of the upper level rooms which had a terrific view over the main street of Queenstown and out onto the lake and the Alps beyond. The room itself was quiet, warm, spacious and along with the kitchen and bathroom was immaculately kept. The facilities were ideal for self catering. There was free Wi-Fi included, and the... More

It was great value for money and would definitely stay there again!! Sue and Alan were very welcoming when we arrived and also helpful at checkout. The unit was clean and... More

It's hard to find a decent place with kitchen facilities so this was perfect. The heaters are on timers so it was a little cold at times but I couldn't really fault it, especially with the very comfy bed and electric blanket. The staff and owners were all friendly and helpful and even gave us some extra internet without charge.... More

Our group had a terrible experience with this place. First of all, the heaters were not working properly and it was freezing in Queenstown that I caught a bad cold. Also, the "cleaners" done not so much in cleaning up. Moreover, were not assigned parking space and we received no help at all in finding one. We can forgive poor... More
