This is a great property in a great location complemented by an outstanding staff. The apartment we stayed in was very well appointed with a beautiful view across the lake to the mountains. I believe all apartments have such a view. The apartment had everything we needed including a well appointed kitchen. I was pleasantly surprised to find both sides... More

Stayed for 5 nights, stunning view, comfortable beds, quality fittings. Clean and well stocked with selection of teas, coffee, hot chocolate etc. Bathroom a little on the small side. Stairs were not a problem for us, but would request a higher apartment if this is going to be an issue as there are no lifts. Well priced, would recommend. Reception... More

Comfortable apartment , clean and well supplied with kitchen needs , great views .Reception staff friendly and helpful. Unfortunately a long walk to bus in ski gear if going to mountains , also a long walk into town for shopping - self catering as no restaurants nearby. Rooms are accessed by long staircases without ramps so expect to carry your... More

Thank you for your review. We are situated on the lakefront 1.5km from central Queenstown. Our location is quiet and peaceful, away from road noise and the noise of bars, night life and parties of town. The nearest bus stop for a ski bus is 300 metres from Villa del Lago. This is a flat walk along a footpath. There... More

We had a 1 bedroom apt for 4 nights and couldn't fault it. The complex is built down the hill to maximise the magnificent views of the lake and snow capped mountains for all apartments. The apartment was modern but cosy with a great gas fire, reception suggestions proved very good, and we loved the location, away from the hustle... More

My wife & I very much enjoyed our stays at Villa del Lago [in sub-let condo apts] in Queenstown. It was one of the nicest properties in which we stayed in our 3 weeks in New Zealand. The apts -- living room & dining area, kitchen, & bedroom(s) -- are well designed and equipped, pleasant, very reasonably priced, and comfortable.... More

Very well kitted out and comfortable apartment for two people with great views across to the Remarkables and across the Lake. Very quiet, on lake side of Frankton Road into Queenstown. You can just drop down on to a pathway that takes you into Queenstown walking along the lake shoreline, 20 minutes, Great gas log fire for the Winter ,... More

My sister and I stayed at the Villa Del Lago for 4 nights during our stay in Queenstown at the end of our two week excursion to New Zealand. The property itself had a beautiful view of Lake Wakatipu and was very clean. The room itself was nice, but there are a few small things that did not allow me... More

Many thanks for your review. Our housekeepers open and tie back the curtains when they make up a room each day to show they have been there and make the place look fresh and tidy. If you prefer to have them closed, you can always ask us while you are here and we will oblige. We are a small hotel... More

From the moment we arrived we were made welcome, given accommodation with point blank lake views. The accommodation itself, a self-contained one bedroom apartment, is very well equipped. There's nothing I can think of that needs improvement.

From the moment of making our reservation to checking-out, our experience was superb all the way. Six people in 3BR apartment never felt crowded, plenty of room to eat our meals or just sit and relax enjoying the lake and mountain views. Both Mel and Charlotte went out of their way to help with any inquiry and suggestions for us.... More
