Returned to Highview apartments for our second stay. We stayed over Christmas in 2012 and hoped it would meet our expectations when we returned with our adult daughter for 6 days in June. Again it met our expectations and we were blown away by the view in winter. So nice to come back and find it just as good as... More

We stayed at Highview for 5 nights in one of their one bedroom units. Before our trip, we had a few email correspondences with Julie and Laura and they were very prompt and helpful in their response (off to a good start). The view of the Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables mountains from our unit 309A was simply BREATHTAKING. Somehow... More

Highview Apartments certainly lives up to it's name. It's high and has excellent views. We had a 1 bedroom apartment on the ground floor and couldn't fault it. The view is to die for looking down on the lake and over the mountains. The colours change throughout the day and it is spectacular in every way. Our apartment was modern... More

This was our second stay at Highview ( first was 3 years ago) and it's still fantastic. Great views, wonderful rooms and really helpful staff. We stayed in a 2 bdr which is on the top floor. The second bdr is a self contained room and was perfect for our teenagers, giving them their own space, bathroom and TV. Especially... More

My husband and I stayed here with our 4 month old son after a trip to Oz and a wedding in Wanaka. We had 3 days here before heading home on a very long journey to London so we just wanted a relaxing few days in Queenstown. We had a very modern apartment with a beautiful view of the lake.... More

My wife and I stayed in Highview Apartments for three nights in April 2024. We reserved a one bedroom lake view. The room came fully equipped with a combination washing machine/dryer. The internet service was reliable and included in the room price. Both of us were able to use the internet simultaneously. The view is stunning. Unfortunately due to rain,... More

Enjoyed a longer than expected stay, however it was so comfortable, we didn't complain. The suite was lovely overlooking the lake. Amenities suited us as we like to be self sufficient, so this was excellent, fully equipped. Lovely comfortable bed, spotless and well serviced. Staff were friendly and happy to do whatever it takes to make the stay comfortable. We... More

A great location with superb views over Lake Wakatipu. Very comfortable and well equipped. Possible to walk into Queenstown but a car is very useful. Make sure you request a lake facing room. Staff are very helpful.

We had two adjoining rooms (208a and b) as there were 4 of us and a baby. Lovely balcony overlooking the lake and mountains; the views were uninterrupted and breathtaking. Good kitchen facilities. Lovely bathrooms with heated mirror. Great lounge area. Very comfortable and cosy with a fire if required. Stayed for 3 nights. It was a little expensive but... More
