We just got home from a week long stay here. Wayne, the owner, was super friendly and helpful and made our stay there even more enjoyable. Spent 4 days snowboarding at the Remarkables and this place was a great base. So close to town and very well equipped. We can't wait to visit again!!!

We stayed here on our honeymoon for 2 nights. Our flights got cancelled getting to NZ which meant we were a day late arriving. Called up before hand and Wayne put a smile on my face with how helpful he was. He changed the dates with no issue. Its what I needed after finding out our flights were cancelled. When... More

The apartment as very good with good kitchen facilities for inhouse dining if required. Bed was comfortable and the view of the mountains was fabntastic. Owners (Joan & Wayne) were very helpful in places to see and all the good eating places. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Queenstown. Great time was had.

Easy walking distance from town centre. Very friendly service throughout our stay. Clean, tidy and comfortable accommodation. We travelled with a baby and were given a cot and high chair at no extra cost. Will definitely stay again next time.

Wayne T, Manager at Whistler, The Chancellor - Queenstown, responded to this review

Thanks for your review – one of the advantages of staying with us is that we, as Managers, live on site. This means we can monitor and hear what is going on around the area and detect and deal with any possible problems. Since reminding the neighbours of their Body Corp Rules about the noise last November there have been... More

We loved our stay at the Whistler, and agree with other reviewers. Wayne and Jan were extremely helpful and the apartment was very spacious, clean and well equipped. Free laundry facilities, parking and Wi-Fi always welcome. And Queenstown was a great place to do some walking and relaxing, whatever age you are. We walked up to the top of the... More

We booked online and were initially awestruck by the lovely kitchen and bath and views of the mountain with the gondolas rising to the Skyline. Wayne was delightful and gave us excellent suggestion for a restaurant (Speights Ale Tavern) which we easily walked to. We spent 2 nights in room 17 and the only criticism we have is that the...

Stayed here just after Christmas - Queenstown was the first place we stopped where we had trouble finding accommodation. Didn't believe the I-Site when they said there was only one room left in the area, because we had seen plenty of 'Vacancy' signs as we drove in. So we started to look and soon found available rooms, but none were... More

We had an apartment overlooking the mountain and park which was lovely. It was exceptionally well equipped - including our own washing machine - and spotlessly clean and we couldn't have wished for more - other than a longer stay! There is under cover car parking but quite a few steps up to the room - though well worth the... More
