We booked based on all the high Tripadvisor ratings, unfortunately the only thing that lived up to the high praise was the view. We booked a one-bedroom apartment with lake view, on the website it says they all come with baths – they don’t. When we asked the receptionist she replied that most people don’t care about the bath tub... More

I planned the trip from Australia to propose to my GF, Highview knew what was happening & went above & beyond to help me with organising the occasion. 1 bedroom apartment was perfect with amazing views..!!! close to town, spotless room, bed was nice & comfy with good pillows which is usually a rare find.... HEATED FLOORS...!!!!!! that's what did... More

The 1 bedroom apartment with a lake view was perfect - the view was world class, the room was spotlessly clean, the bed was so comfy, the fire place heated the living area perfectly and the kitchen served us well after a full day snowboarding. Plus you're only a short drive from town, with ample parking on site. The amazing... More

Stayed in the one bedroom lake view and it was perfect! 15 minutes walk to town even better because we had a car. View was stunning and it was surprisingly private and peaceful seeing as it wasn't very far away from town. Loved the size of the room + underfloor heating is always good for winter. Would love to come... More

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.
