Had a fantastic night with brilliant views of the lake and mountains. Owners were fantastic, very insightful close walk to the town and great place for a family holiday. Views are out of this world. Great place.

Spectacular view from the lake view rooms. About a 10 min walk to town center, staff were very nice and let us check in early. Bed is ridiculously comfortable and rooms are huge! Will stay here again on our next visit.

Stayed in Earnslaw Lodge from Tuesday 13th Jan to Saturday 17th. Best few nights ever! Easily accessible by Connectabus as well. Couldn't be happier! Also very close to Lake Wakatipu. Very comfy beds, and lovely owners!

We stayed here for one night before heading to fiord land. It was pouring rain, and the room was stuffy. There was no way to let any fresh air into the room as we were located off an atrium. There were windows there, but the rain would have poured inside. So unfortunately we had to sleep with no air in... More

We arrived into Queenstown during the peak Christmas season having booked our accommodation online and this was to be our longest stopover in a short but busy visit to the Sth Island (my first visit). We were so looking forward to Queenstown and when we arrived at Earnslaw Lodge we were absolutely wrapped with our choice. The location, the stunning... More

Great hotel and priced nicely. Short, nice walk to town with a beautiful balcony - breathtaking view. Super relaxing and can see the sunset from your room. If you don't want to be in the heart of it all, but still close to the center of town, this place is perfect. Rooms were clean, staff was friendly. Didn't pay for... More

Very basic rooms, but nice and clean. We had a lake front room and the views are truly spectacular. Easy walk into town. Hotel has laundry, which came in handy. We didn't eat breakfast any of the days we were there, so I can't comment on the food. Staff was friendly.

Great view, important to get a room with a view of the lake. Comfortable room with good facilities. Friendly staff. 10 minute walk into town where there are plenty of bars, restaurants etc. Queenstown is good city for young people, plenty going on.

Lynley is very friendly - much appreciated. The beds were comfortable and we had a good rest. The best thing about this motel is it is very reasonably priced compared with other motels. It would be good if they had free Wi-Fi like other motels and the gardens for those with a garden view needed a bit of a tidy-up.

First of all we were impressed with the friendly, helpful staff who were busy polishing every surface in sight! Everywhere was very clean but there was no hiding the age of the property. We had a room on the road side which was effectively triple glazed which was impressive. Our room was also very effectively heated, so much that I... More
