The villas here are perfectly located on Queenstown’s foreshore, with the most amazingly stunning views in the world, across Lake Wakatipo. The view here changes by the hour, from covered snow-capped mountains with low hanging cloud in the mornings, to a picture perfect view of the mountains at lunchtime with bright blue sky, to the hanging mist over the lake...

We came late in the afternoon we ended up with a much bigger unit than we had booked. An outstanding view over the lake, comfortable beds and large rooms. Staff in reception were bright and helpful. Apartments are serviced daily and are spotless. Although next to the Frankton road it is quiet and peaceful as it is lower than the... More

Beautiful room with stunning views and great amenities. Very friendly and helpful staff, with owner driving us into town as he was on the way. 5min taxi ride into town. Bus transport to snow fields within 100m of hotel. Fast WiFi with free topping up if data limit reached.

My husband and I stayed one night in the One Bedroom Suite which was very spacious. It has a living room, fully equipped kitchen, dining room, bedroom, laundry area and bathroom. The living and dining room has an excellent view of the Lake Wakatipu and the mountains. There is a direct path from the suite which leads to the lakeside... More

This was an excellent hotel. Right on the lake with spectacular views from your room/patio. The room was great -- large, modern, well equipped. This hotel is 3/4 mile from town which can be a big draw back for some. However, that 3/4 mile is a great walk along a good quality trail by the lake shore. I came to... More

We arrived to find ourselves in the most beautiful room with a view to die for, small hiccup with water meant we had to move to another room but this was even better with views from bedroom and lounge. Facilities fantastic, service amazing and cleanliness unbeatable. Thank you for a wonderful stay,we would come again if ever back in Queenstown.... More

The units may vary so this reflects only the unit we stayed in which was located midway up the hillside, so not at top off the road, nor at the bottom near the lake. Could see the lake, but the view was partially obscured by the roof of the lower unit. These are really villas but we weren't really expecting... More

My partner and I are regular visitors to Queenstown usually flying in and staying at various apartments along Frankton Road. This was our first time at Villa De Lago and it will not be our last. On arrival we were warmly welcomed and shown to the apartment that we had booked on line. The view, while ok ,was a little... More

We stayed here for a week over Easter. The location was great with a fantastic view. We loved walking into town everyday to eat and then back home again. The one bedroom apartment was spacious and we appreciated that they topped up washing powder, dishwasher powder etc everyday which is not the norm for apartments. I had done my research... More
