We loved our time at Highview Apartments. Friendly and helpful staff. Nothing too much trouble. Our apartment had a spectacular view of the mountains and lake. Beds were lovely and comfortable and everything we needed was at our fingertips in the apartment. Loved the floor heating. 10 to 15 minute walk to town was fine.

LOVE LOVE LOVE it here! All the luxuries you could want. Beautiful place to stay & staff very friendly & helpful. The view is to die for. The ultimate place to come home to to rewind after a big day out and it's close enough to town. Would definately stay here again. We loved the heated flooring and towel racks... More

With 2 parents and a child the apartment was good. Great views and warm quiet accommodation in close walk to the middle of town, which also meant it was only $9-$10 for a taxi when we didn't feel like walking. A drawback was the limited TV channels and no kids channel and no ability to play DVD's or external media... More

Beautiful views of Lake Wakatipu and away from the noise of town centre. A bit of a hike but didn't really mind it. Great room and bath. I really enjoyed staying there. Lovely receptionist too! Well equipped apartment even with dishwasher. Spacious and clean. Highly recommended and would definitely return again!

We spent a lovely long weekend at Highview. Our view was out over the lake and the mountains. Lovely large apartment with kitchen, living room, bedroom all open plan. Lovely and clean. We have stayed in a lot of places on Queenstown but never here. We would definitely come back. Far enough from the centre of town to feel private... More

I have never stayed in a prettier place. The views are spectacular, the staff are ever so friendly, everything about it is wonderful. Highview Apartments made our holiday just that little bit more special waking up to mountains surrounding us covered in snow.

A lovely apartment that had everything we wanted. We chose it because it had easy onsite parking, a rarity close to Queenstown. Many had to park in adjoining streets or pay. Uninterrupted view of the Remarkable Mountains. We could walk easily into town, going down the steeper route and using the less steep but slightly longer route back. We asked... More

These Modern Apartments are nicely situated to the town centre and an easy walk. Well appointed and warm and comfortable. Great value for the money. Excellent parking available onsite and helpful reception.

We stayed at Highview apartments in early March. The first thing we noticed was that room had no air-conditioning. Normally, temperature falls at night so you dont need one (so we were told by the Manager of the property). However there were two nights were it was quite hot and humid. We had to request a stand fan to be... More

Thank you for taking time to review our property, As the Manager mentioned we don't have too many days where the humidity is high, previously standing fans have been enough for guests but we appreciate your comments. Most of our guests don't spend all day in bed (lucky things) or the Apartment as they want to see as much of... More

I stayed on the top level and the unit is fantastic. Everything is as good as new and perfectly clean. The view is amazing - just lake and mountains. Its position just 10 minutes walk from town and off the main road means it is very quiet. Love it.
