We stayed at this hotel for two nights and had a good experience. Our room was in pristine condition and had a lovely and close up view of Lake Wakatipu. To get to the city center, you do need a car or another form of transportation but it is a quick drive away (about 10 minutes). The hotel was a... More

The pros of these villas far outweigh the cons. Great sized one bedroom apartment with everything you need. All amenities were perfect with heated bathroom floors and gas fireplace. Fantastic views though we were second row back so ours were partially obstructed by the views in front. Comfy beds, full kitchen facilities and washer/dryer. The staff were unbelievably helpful with... More

We stayed in a 1 room suite overlooking the lake. Oh my word, what a view! And the location was conveniently located to everything - town, the airport, grocery stores, Glenorchy, Arrowtown, Lake Wanaka, you name it. The hosts were so nice (Charlotte and team) and the room service and uptake was fantastic. The 1 bedroom suite has a nice... More

Stayed for 3 nights in 1 bed room villa. The view is simply amazing - sitting just meters from the lake, with no road dividing the room from it. Super well equipped (stove, fireplace, dishwasher, oven, fridge, washer, drier,...) and spacious. Not cheap - but worth the money if you're looking for great apartment close to queenstown (~20 minute walk... More

Our family stayed at a luxury two bedroom suite. The place was clean, the furniture was modern and setting wa very good. All equipments including the gas heater were well appointed and of high quality. Of course the price was high, so it will fall in the expensive bracket but then it was worth it. The staff were very professional... More

Our stay at Villa del Lago last week was fantastic. Staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Apartments are well appointed, comfortable & modern. Tourist recommendations by Nicola were spot on for us! Short walk to town but taxis reasonable. And our bonus was snow on the amazing mountains! Highly recommended!

Me and my group of 6 stayed in Room 3, which was on the same level as the upper carpark (note: lack of need to drag our luggage around). While the furnishing was in my opinion so-so (that being said, the fully functioning washer and dryer was a plus since we just came back from hiking the Milford Track) the... More

The apartment is lovely and spacious with a gas fireplace, two seat sofa and chair, desk, dining table, fully appointed kitchen, Queen bed with a view of the water, a nice bathroom and a washer & dryer. Everything is maintained and well... More

friendly prompt reception. Very happy with 1 bedroom apartment (No 15). Private and warm. We do feel for a 5 star accommodation the bathroom cupboards could be updated as water damaged. Overall we would highly recommend and hope to return.

Thank you very much for your review. We are currently in the process of upgrading the bathroom joinery in many of the apartments as we too are aware of the water damage. We have just a couple of apartments left to complete and the one you stayed in is on the list! We hope that next time you come to... More
