We have just stayed at Highview Apartments for the second time and we will return on our next visit to Queenstown. Our first stay was 2 years ago and we really liked it then. Our second stay was even better. The apartments have been upgraded and are even more comfortable and well equipped . We have always stayed in a... More

Having reviewed lots of places we went for a mid price apartment (always better than a hotel room). We thought this may be a bit out of town but it was perfectly placed for us. Not too near to be noisy, as it's in a residential area, but an easy 10 minute walk into town. We also managed to park... More

If scenic vistas are what you look for during your vacation then this is the place for you. Except for the studio apartment, the one and two bedroom apartments all have wonderful views of Lake Wakatipu and the mountains in the background and have a very well-equipped kitchen with nice crockery and cutlery. The washing machine and drier, with washing... More

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment on the second floor and each day I could not wait to return to see the newest shade of blue! In addition to the views we loved the modern and sleek apartment. The linens were of excellent quality and the bed quite comfortable. We highly recommend Highview apartments for a classy and beautiful... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable and very warm as well as being well designed. Reception was friendly and helpful. The walk to town wasn't as bad as some reviews have said if your reasonably fit. First time I haven't put weight on a holiday :) I highly recommend.

Stunning views over the lake and the Remarkables - a great way to start each day! The apartments were well equipt so we could eat at home but we were also close enough to town to eat out. Was great to be able to do our own washing. The ladies at the front desk were really helpful and gave some... More

We stayed in a 2bdm Apartment on 2nd floor. We had a Lake view room which was so impressive as the views are breathtaking. Reasonable walk to town, rooms are well fitted out with everything you need. We were here for 5 nights and loved it.

We stayed for 2 nights in a 1bedroom apartment on the top floor. Our room was 309a which had the most amazing breath taking views of the lake and mountains. The apartment was extremely comfortable with the added bonus of a oven, dishwasher, plenty of crockery & cutlery, washing machine and clothes airer, lovely warm heater and under floor heating....

Back in 2009, we stayed in Highview and I wrote a rave review about this place. We liked it so much we decided to come back and stay in a 1BR apartment. Alas, 5 years later, the apartments were so badly maintained we had 3 missing tiles chunks from the bathroom walls, black (tar-like) stains on the bathtub which is... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for Highview, what wasn't mentioned though is the notice that is at reception and around the property alerting guests and profusely apologising for the work that has unfortunately been undertaken due to burst water pipes, this is not a lack of maintenance as suggested but immediate repair work during peak...

Pros - 1 bedroom apartment is very comfortable and fully appointed with full kitchen and washing machine. Heaters (gas and underfloor) work really well so even in winter, it's warm inside. View is excellent of the lake and mountain ranges. Cons - TV is too small for lounge area. Furniture could use some updating. Really need a hire car as... More
