A perfect place to stay for our last night in Queenstown. Clean, friendly motel with views too good to be true. Lake view room a must. Wonderful breakfast and extremely friendly service. Lovely short walk into town. We will definitely be booking for our next stay in Queenstown. Wish we had found this place earlier 😃

The hotel is well-situated on the lake, just a little outside of the main area, but a very short walk to all the bars and restaurants. A very spacious room and clean with everything we needed. The person at reception was always very helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here. We only stayed for two nights, but this would be... More

We had a great stay at the Earnslaw Lodge. It was our second time there and we will be back. We had a wonderful view of the lake, the service was lovely, and everything was reasonably priced. Overall an excellent experience and one which we can highly recommend.

A lovely place to stay. Very reasonable rates, superb views, and friendly owners. Very happy with our stay, however brief. The breakfast was freshly prepared, and the coffee was good. Our room had great views of the lake. The location is perfect in my mind away from the noise of downtown. Room was spacious, and clean. Bathroom was large. WiFi... More

Thank you for the review. Always nice when someone can take the time and let you know that there stay with us was enjoyed. We are a small team, the housekeepers pride themseves in clean comfortable rooms. A room with a view is certaintly worth the little bit of extra price wise. Hopefully you will be able to stay with...

We got a very cheap deal at Earnslaw Lodge - $99 including small but perfectly adequate breakfast and thought it was exceedingly good value. The room was spacious and clean and there was a big radiator to keep us warm. The bathroom was much larger than usual in a hotel room. Our room looked onto the street and towards the... More

Poor attention to guest comfort. No heating had been turned on and my room was really cold when I arrived back for the night at 12 pm. No electric blanket on the bed, no complementary fresh milk and hardly enough of the long life for more than one cup of tea. To add to this the shower had hardly any... More

Dear Janet Sorry that you think that we didnt offer any personal service, as we pride ourselves on this. With regards to the heater it is controlled by the guest as we dont know when everybody is coming and going. As our rooms are very warm we have never had electric blankets in the rooms. We supply milk on arrival... More

What a find, nice clean three star hotel in handy location. Plenty of room in the family unit we had with everything you need. Hosts took great care of us and made bookings on our behalf. Will be coming back to stay next trip.

The lodge is clean and tidy and the hosts are super friendly and helpful. We got the chance to upgrade to a lakeside room as there was a cancellation, was so happy we took the room. Stunning view! Queenstown is wonderful. We will be staying here again.

very friendly and helpful staff, great location. We stayed 2 nights there, and it is too short. This time we didnt choose the lake view room, but next time we will definitely choose that. The view is fantastic!

We stayed here for 5 nights in one of the studios. Our room was well equipped and very clean with a cute little patio area to use weather permitting. We found the owners so very helpful and generous of their time. Have no reservations recommending this place.
