The location is good, it's a walk into town but it's really not far. There is free parking and the owners are friendly and helpful. The room is clean and has everything you need. It is a bit old fashioned but for a guaranteed lake view view it is a winner. When researching hotels I found that some places were... More

The Princess and I were fortunate enough to be referred to the Earnslaw Lodge, by the iSite people, who are very, very nice and good at the job. We were welcomed and shown Rm.1. which was very comfortable and well appointed. The room had wonderful views of Lake Wakatipu and the Gondola. Frank, the Manager, or owner, was particularly friendly... More

Easy to find and very friendly staff. the room was spacious and spotless, with views over the lake and mountains that would be hard to beat.. Make sure you are on the outside balcony when the sun is going down, as you will get the most amazing sunsets. Although you will have to share it with most of the other... More

We started out first visit to New Zealand at the Earnslaw in Queenstown. We stayed there twice, once in a lake view room and once on the street side. Both rooms were clean but the lake view room is most definitely worth the upgrade! Although this is not a high end motel, it is a great place to stay. The... More

We stayed in a 'lake-facing kitchen studio'. The view of the lake and mountains was amazing. The room was comfortable with everything we needed. Not too far to walk into Queenstown, which avoided parking problems. We very much enjoyed our stay.

We stayed in a 2 bed apartment which suited our needs admirably. First thing we noticed was the wow view of the Remarkables and lake from the apartment, it was stunning. The unit was clean and the beds were 1st class. The motel was easy to find with good parking. The proprietor Lynley Jones was very helpful and friendly. The... More

This is not a luxury hotel but it is very clean and nicely located. Perfect for families who want to get out and enjoy Queenstown but not be in center city, and have space to spread out after a long day of activities. Management staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

We stayed 4 nights at Earnslaw Lodge in a superior studio with lake view. The room was very spacious and nicely decorated with great views over the lake. Queenstown seems to be the most expensive place to stay on the South Island, so I thought this good value for money. Some accomodation I looked at was double the price we... More

We had booked a studio with lakeview on Expedia, but when we arrived, we were told it was not available. The owner told us she had tried to call and left message. We were unhappy with basement room available, so she called all around Queenstown, and found us a lakeside room at nearly equivalent price (which we were very happy... More
