Having decided to use Queenstown as a 4 night stop over we wanted a good level of accommodation. I chose The Highview as it ticked most of the boxes. It's position on the fringe of the main town means it's a slow 10 minute walk to the centre. However that's down hill. The return is a little more invigorating. The... More

We stayed in a Studio Apartment in February 2015 for 7 nights. There were many pluses and minuses to this accommodation. Pluses: the rooms were clean, modern and tasteful. The receptionist was extremely helpful and accommodating. The bathrooms were spacious and the beds quite comfy (although way too soft for my partner's liking). Free Wi-Fi and the hot tub was...

Thank you for taking time to review Highview Apartments, We are looking into the Air Conditioning as we realise for a short time that the weather is uncomfortable for some guests. Although we have never had anyone mention Mosquitos before and working on the complex for 5 years this is a first, we feel for you but were never spoken... More

I loved staying here. Very clean, really quiet, hotel quality finishings with an apartment feel. The studio room I had didn't have a view but once outside, the view from the property over Lake Wakatipu afforded me some beautiful photos. There was plenty of parking and the staff were always friendly, helpful and available. It's an easy ten minute walk... More

We travelled to Queenstown in summer so these apartments are well placed as they are only a 10 min walk to the town centre. As we walk everywhere I would only be concerned about this location during the colder months as a section of the road to town is quite steep and therefore may become slippery. We were in room...

We got a one bedroom apartment with lake views and the wife and I are very happy. With a open style floor plan in the lounge /bedroom area with bifold doors to inclose if you wish. Block out curtains on the balcony which also have bifold doors opening up on to a magic view. Looks as if the apartments have... More

We stayed in a queen size apartment on the second floor with a lake view. The view is amazing and the living space is quite big. Heating is very good, noise is very quiet and there is enough parking for all apartments. It is about 5-10 minutes walk from the town centre, about 1.2km from the gondola. The only minor... More

There were 5 of us - 3 adults a 4 year old and a 1 year old. This was the ideal accommodation with the main bedroom and bathroom separated from the lounge by folding doors. The galley kitchen was well equipped and the second bedroom had its own bathroom. Having a bath was great for the children. In addition there... More

Great place to stay before and after the Routeburn walk. We were in a studio apartment unfortunately with no views but the place was tidy, clean and modern and it was perfect for what we needed. Extremely helpful host who assisted with our washing needs after our hike and alas we didn't get to try out the spa pool... It... More

We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment (ie two adjacent rooms) for three nights earlier this week. The rooms are nice, clean, modern, well equipped kitchen including dishwasher and washing machine. A patio/deck (ground floor level) was a brilliant spot for having breakfast enjoying the magnificent views of Lake Wakatipu and Queenstown. One never tire of that view! Beds comfortable and... More
