Stayed here for 7 nights and I would highly recommend. I had a studio which was quite spacious. Fridge, microwave, crockery and cutlery very handy. Yes, it is a bit of a walk uphill to get back from town, but most people would be fine. I used the small gym, it has a treadmill, rower, bike, multistation weight machine. Manager... More

We arrived before the usual check in time and would be out all afternoon and evening and hoped that we could leave some valuables and collect our key. This was no problem and we really appreciated this. The apartment was massive, the bathroom bigger than my own bathroom at home. Although water did leak out of the shower onto the... More

We stayed here for a week in January and found the 2 bedroom apartment to be modern and well-equipped. These are really 2 studios with an interconnecting door and passageway, so each studio apartment is fairly small, although both are fully self-contained. If 4 people want to use the living area in the main studio, it is a bit cramped,... More

We stayed at their 1 Bedroom Apartment for 4 days and the room balcony lake/mountain views were by far the best we could find in Queenstown. The hotel is situated further and higher than most other hotels, hence the views from the rooms are uninterrupted and better than other hotels that are near the main city center. The room was...

We visited Queenstown as a family for four days, staying at Highview. It offered a two bedroom apartment with brilliant views from the full length balcony at the rear. The best part is that you can slide the glass doors open to have full floor to ceiling and wall to wall access to the balcony and the view. The amenities... More

The one bedroom apartment has beautiful views of the lake and mountains , the kitchen is well equipped and the open plan appeals . The bathroom/shower area is not too comfortable and the number of available tv channels is restricted ; most disappointing was the fact that our apartment was not serviced during our five night stay ; the lady...

Wanted a great view over the lake, so chose Highview Apartments, and it did not disappoint! We decided it was one of the better places to stay because of the view. Not cheap, but worth the extra as would not of been happy in one of the non-view studio's (which our relations were staying in). Apartments have everything you need... More

Thank you for taking the time to comment on our Apartment complex, we agree and think the view is definitely worth the money and find it ever changing year round. From snowy backdrops (and sometimes foreground) to the changing autumn colours, boats on the lake and all the activities in between, to a quiet cuppa and paper on the balcony,... More

They charge a good hotel price but not provide the same service hotel should provide, such as cleaning room and change towers. Basically they only help with check in and collect money upfront, not much afterwards and you could even hardly find them in office. For instance, I recently stay in this "4 star" apartment for 4 nights, they did... More

Stayed in a stunning one bedroom apartment with views across the lakes to the mountains. Queenstown was buzzing over the new year period- but the apartment was a good walking distance from the centre of town that it meant that it was quiet at night. The apartment was well set up with kitchen and laundry facilities. Breakfast on the balcony... More

We booked a 1 bed lake facing room. Although not a separate bedroom (folding door can be pulled across to separate lounge) we quite enjoyed the open plan style. The apartment was spacious and has quality fittings. The kitchen was well equipped with hob,oven,dishwasher and microwave. The bathroom contained a washer dryer and washing powder was supplied. The best aspect... More
