If you want a reasonably priced motel room in a relatively quiet position within 5 minutes stroll of just about all Central Queenstown attractions this accommodation should fit the bill. No secluded balconies or stunning lake views but we didn't expect these facilities for the price. Peak season when we visited but no disturbed sleep despite being only 400m from... More

The location is very good, everything is in walking distance. The room was a good size and the kitchen was big enough. Downside: our room was room 9 and there was a stair just next to our window which the other guests used to get up their room and everybody could look through our window (and everybody did because that's...

We stayed at Amber Lodge to do the Routeburn Track. We had a 2-bdrm with a queen & 3 singles. Clean, comfortable, and equipped with everything you need to self-cater. No Sky, but 1Gb Wi-Fi. 5 mins walk to town, and only 2 mins walk to the local grocery store. Water pressure in the shower is awesome. Road noise is... More

We recently stayed at Amber Lodge before and after walking the Greenstone. The location couldn't have been more perfect, just a few minutes walk away to anything you might need to do / see / enjoy in QT. The accommodation - one and two bedroom self-contained apartments - was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, functional, and had everything we needed, including... More

Studio was perfectly adequate. Never going to set the world on fire but it was clean and the location is perfect for towns facilities. Staff were all friendly and were more than willing to help. If you want budget accommodation you can't go wrong. Just don't expect the earth.

My wife and I obviously got a different unit to those depicted by Amber Lodge. Our "self-catering" area was jammed at the end of the bed which was our only seating! We had a barren side entrance with no view. Saved by the great location as we could walk everywhere.

My family chose this hotel due to the location and not so bad reviews on Tripadvisor. We arrived and Sue was at reception. Sue is very pleasant and happy, a typical Kiwi. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment and it was just right for us. As mentioned in other reviews, it is dated but clean all the same. Heating is... More

Our unit was clean and comfortable but seemed a bit tired needing some minor maintenance. Amber lodge is within easy walking distance to the town, various activities and restaurants. The managers were friendly and helpful

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
