We had a 7 night stay in room 309a. Outstanding views. Short walk into town away from the hustle and bustle of queenstown. Bit of a hill on the way back but ok. Bathroom design isn't the greatest as water splashes on the ground however this doesn't take it away from the awesome room. Would highly recommend and would stay... More

We stayed in Queenstown for five nights, all of which were spent at Highview. Literally one of my favorite moments of our entire trip was when we walked into our apartment and saw the completely unobstructed view of Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables (we reserved a lake view room - absolutely worth the extra cost). The place was big, clean,... More

We stayed 3 nights in a one bedroom apartment. Great welcome from the friendly and helpful receptionist (Julie?). There was everything you could need including a washer/dryer which was very useful. The view was fantastic and more than made up for the fairly steep climb up the hill. You just need to be reasonably fit! The only addition that would... More

Stayed here on Thursday and Friday evening. Had booked a room online but was to small. I was easily upgraded for a fair cost and relocated to Room 205A. 1 Bedroom apartment with a deck with a view from Mitre Peak back into Queenstown. Plenty of room and very nicely appointed. Room would have been 100SQM with galley kitchen and... More

These apartments are just a little outside the CBD, on a quieter stretch of road, which we liked. However if you were walking, they are probably a good 10-15 minutes walk from the centre of town. First time we have stayed here, and we were very pleasantly surprised. Large apartment with a high level specification. 2 bedrooms, each with walk-in... More

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...
