Modern and clean! The good points we got a 2 room suite that had a very large living space and just breath taking views of the lake. Service was nice enough and the rooms were clean and modern. Location close drive into town. Also if you plan on cooking in the suite it had a massive kitchen and dinning area.... More

The views from our balcony justified paying a little extra than other motels. The underground car parking and a massive suite including a personal laundry room made this location the best stay throughout our month trip around NZ. Would not hesitate to re-book.

We have stayed here twice now - and chose it for the superb location, views from the rooms, and spaciousness of the living areas. I will keep coming back here. Expensive for us, but not for Queenstown, so this way we know we are getting a beautiful place to stay in. On this trip everyone was so happy with the... More

We stayed a couple of nights here in suite 508, which I wanted to take home with me! Great views of the lake from the big picture windows and the fantastic balcony, furnished to a high standard (apart from a lack of oven gloves!)and nice and clean. Breakfast was not included in our room rate, but was a reasonable price.... More
