Had somewhat high expectations which have led to being disappointed. I should have read the fine print when booking as the pictures didn't match the room at all. If I had have seen the view of the car park in the pictures and had any idea of how small the room was I would not have stayed. There was one... More

I stayed in a studio for two days, then went hiking and stayed in a lakeside for three days apartments were fine and nice and close to town I didn't hire a car as I could walk to town in ten minutes, price is ok if you book early, best part is the views. TV is outdated and limited channels,... More

Stayed here for 5 days over the marathon weekend. Very convenient. Always enough parking. Unlike most "apartment" rentals where your room is never looked after, they clean and re-stock your room every 2 days. The onsite manager is great. Very accommodating and helpful. Rooms are very modern. Kettle, fridge and microwave (though I think some of the larger rooms have... More

Finding a room with two beds for my mum and I for a 2 night stay in Queenstown when on a budget was proving difficult until I came across Highview Apartments. We stayed in a studio suite facing the parking area...in hindsight we should probably have paid the extra for a lake view but it wasn't that big an issue,... More

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
