We stayed here over Easter weekend in a 2 bedroom unit with teenage boys. Whilst unit showed some signs ageing and regular tenancy, it was comfortable with plenty of room and lovely lake front views towards Frankton Arm. Even though there was full occupancy in the complex, noise was minimal and beds were comfortable allowing a good night's sleep. There... More

Very welcome to stay in a large well appointed apartment with great views of snow capped mountains. Yes in March. The management could take a little better care to ensure that all facilities are working correctly. A little inconvenient having to call the office for assistance. Apart from that the convenience of a short stroll to town is worth it.... More

Stayed with my wife in Feb 2012 for a week through a timeshare offer. For the amount we paid it represented good value, but felt the apartment was a little tired and it wouldn't have been worth the rack rate. There weren't many units occupied when we were there so access via the steep driveway wasn't too bad - it... More

This motel is right next to the lake so you have a very nice view. Spacious room and bathroom. Everything seemed clean except for the big stain on the top blanket / comforter. The kitchenette is pretty much complete. Quite disappointed though that you have to wash up before you check out or you'll be charged NZD25. Didn't see that... More

One word... WOW!! This was the definite highligh of my trip. Absolutely stunning views, gorgeous self-contained apartment. Stayed here 3 nights, could have stayed forever. A bit of a steep driveway to get in, but overall, cannot complain. A beautiful home away from home, everything you could wish for and more. Loved it, would recommend to anyone!

We stayed in a 3 bedroom townhouse with family. The house was huge with everything you need - fully stocked kitchen, two bathrooms, washer and dryer etc. The location is beautiful - we had amazing lake views from our balcony. It's a bit of a trek from town - 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk.

you will need a car to drive into the city or a bus. otherwise it will be a good 20-25 min walk into town. The one bedroom which I stayed was simple, neat, nothing more, nothing less. I thought it was expensive to what you would normally get around Queenstown. The room I stayed will be very cold in the... More

Stayed in a three bedroom two bathroom apartment with my husband and three teenagers. Spacious. So much room to spread out in which is great with a grown up family. Amazing views of lake Wakatipu and surrounding mountains. Quiet. (ahhh!) Self contained with everything we needed including laundry. Noticed that the electrical cord was missing from the electric frying pan... More

This place has great views across Lake Wakitipu and the Remarkables. It is a 20-25 minutes walk into town, otherwise about a 5-10 minute drive. The no. 11 (yellow) bus is another option on Frankton Road. Reception is open 9-5, but there is a resident manager onsite. When you enter the property there is a sign that says "luxury apartments"...
