I stayed at this hotel for two nights with a friend. It is in a great location - just a short 5 minute walk to town (with no big hill to walk up or down!) and only a couple of minutes from the best supermarket in town. The room had a kitchenette and was very comfortable. Excellent heating and friendly... More

Stayed at The Whistler many times before. Very comfortable well appointed rooms, management very friendly and attentive. Short walk into the CBD. Will stay again for sure. Bedroom is set at back of unit so road noise is not a problem, bathroom has its own washing machine which is handy for those staying a bit longer than a few days.

The apartment had all the amenities. View of the gondola from the balcony was beautiful. It is a bit away from the lakefront. But that makes it much quieter place, which we liked. The hosts were really friendly and helpful. Definitely recommended.

We stayed for 2 nights in late March in the two bedroom apartment. The room was meticulously clean and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need to make meals and it's a very short walk to the main street in town. Considering the outrages prices for places to stay in Queenstown (not to mention that there are A... More

We stayed two nights at Whistler while we were in Queenstown, and were a little disappointed with the room. It was clean and the service was reasonably good, however the heating was not adequate and we could not warm the room up, even with the addition of an electric blow heater the management supplied.

Thanks for your feedback. We are glad you found the apartment clean and the service we provided good. We are sorry though if you felt your apartment could not warm up. You were in a one bedroom apartment that has a heat pump where the temperature can be raised to over 30 degrees Celsius!! The heat pump usually in itself... More

These apartments are very cozy and have everything you need. Even two supermarket nearby, each 5 minutes walking, one you go left, the other you go right. But no worries, because when you check-in you have all that useful information. The centre of the village is just 5 minutes walking, that's right you can park your car and a short... More

I chose this hotel because of it's fantastic TripAdvisor reviews and I'm so glad I did. I am a hotelier and this hotel is capable of living up to anyone's standards. Service- the owners are fantastic and super nice. There is more hospitality that comes from these two than most luxury hotel chains. The big companies should take a page... More

We booked 3nights for a 1bedroom apartment. Check in was easy with Wayne. He's bright and very cheerful and its refreshing to have such exciting welcome. Wayne showed me the room and give me a quick intro on the do and don'ts. The room has an amazing view, big space in the living area and a decent kitchen space. There's... More

This is our second stay at Whistler, our previous visit was five years ago. From the moment we arrived we knew that this was going to be a revival of our previous wonderful vacation in Queenstown. We were welcomed by the owners like we were long lost friends and immediately we caught up on all our news and felt at... More

Wayne was really friendly on our arrival & checked us in to apartment 22. Was larger than expected with a double & single bed in bedroom. Large bathroom & great kitchen. Balcony had a view of the Gondola & paragliders. Nice chairs & TV with DVD player. Was only 6 minutes to town so can park your car & walk... More
