Stayed here while on a skiing trip to Queenstown. We were welcomed by Charlotte who was super helpful, told us lots of great info on Q'town and the ski fields - she was fantastic. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. It had amazing views of the Remarkables and the lake! The suite was great, super warm with a cosy... More

The most difficult part of planning our vacation to Queenstown was where to stay. TripAdvisor led us here, thankfully! This hotel was everything we expected and more! Our room was perfect! We had an amazing view of the lake which offered unbelievable views of the sunrise each morning! We had a full kitchen, living room area and a fireplace. The... More

We recently stayed here in a one bedroom apartment for 4 nights and wished it had been longer. The two key selling points for us were the views of the lake and the mountains plus the fireplace. Especially in the winter this just set the perfect ambience for an amazing holiday. It is a little bit out of town (around... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa right on the lake. We managed to take several hundred photos just from the balcony! The views of the Remarkables and the lake are perfect. The accommodation itself was very comfortable, with a large lounge and 3 comfortable bedrooms. The team who run it are very friendly and very helpful. The villa also... More

Stayed at Villa Del Lago for 11 days during our ski holiday. We could not fault the accommodation. Had a 1 bedroom villa which had the best views of the lake and the Remarkables. Was very neat and cosy. The staff were very helpful, often booking us cabs and making reservations for dinner for us in Queenstown at our request.... More

Just stayed for a week in a one bed suite. The apartments was excellent and well fitted out. All of the utensils in the kitchen were of really high quality. Pretty unusual as most apartments have very ordinary cookware. In fact because of the brilliant views we tended to stay at home and eat dinner, drink wine and watch the... More

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
