Stayed at Amber Lodge for 6 nights. Clean and comfortable room, nice hot shower, warm and toasty bed. Great location, just a 4-min walk away from the town center. The owners were friendly and accommodating. Free WiFi (1GB) but unfortunately it's not very stable. Not a big issue for me as I was on Vodafone's $5/day roaming plan. Would definitely... More

Was warm and only a short walk into town. The cooking facilities consisted of a microwave and stove top, with all the pans and plates you'd need - however everything was a little outdated. Bathroom was a little drafty but rooms were spacious. Free wifi, but you had to pay for it if you went over your limit.

Older style property close to town. Had everything we required in a spacious room with a good sized kitchen (that we didn't use). Friendly young lady checked us in. While the weather was warm for our stay, did see that there was heating in the room and bathroom as well as electric blankets which would make the room very cosy.

Older property, probably from 1960's, but has all the basics needed and is very close to town centre. If you are looking for a long stay, or a modern motel wiih all mod cons this may not be for you. But for a single night or 2, it is quite functional and few minutes walk to town centre.

As I joked with Sue, the proprietress of this place, the Amber Lodge is not a five-star property. It's a simple "mom and pop" place that is clean, comfortable, and fairly priced -- perfect for families. I liked it a lot and will go back should I ever return to Queenstown. As nice as its simple amenities are, the location... More

Good location for Queenstown. Close to shops and restaurants try Pedros house of lamb for an unusual take away. We were upgraded to a one bedroom apartment which was spacious and had everything we needed for our two night stay. Some areas that were not that visable could have done with a bit of a clean but on the whole... More

Alan and Sue are absolutely wonderful hosts. They provide a simple yet home-y feel to their motel. I enjoyed waking up to a mountain view of the legendary skyline gondola. They helped us book an activity and provided extra towels for it. My best friend and I are definitely recommending it to all our family and friends. :) Thanks Al... More

Not sure what the other reviewers were on about. We came to Queenstown on a budget with our intention to spend big on activities. It was a standard room with all the basic facilities and resources we needed. The kitchen was equipped and the bed was lined with an electrical blanket, perfect for the cold nights. The location of the... More
