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.

We stayed here for 7 nights in room 303a and had the most incredible views over the mountains and lake, truly beautiful. The room was lovely and had everything we needed. We even used the hot spa one night which was so nice and just one of the extra perks. They also have a gym with some basic equipment, everything... More

I has apartment 205a, which was just fabulous. The apartment itself is the same level as the car park and looks straight out onto the lake with an unimpeded view (i.e. no buildings, not even low level ones are in front of it). The apartment itself is large, finished to a high standard and is very well equiped. Highview itself... More

We'd previously looked at apartments on the airport side of town, a little way out from the centre, so were delighted to find this place on the other, quieter side, within such easy reach of town, the lakeside and the gondola up the mountain. An apartment with a view is well worth paying extra for, and the kitchen and bathroom... More

Great location, just a 10 minute walk into town yet far enough to be nice and quiet, the rooms are okay, but for the price, well worth it, we didn't have a view though but was happy we could even actually get a booking during the busy season, the only minor flaw was the tv in the room, extremely small...
