Truly magnificent. The lake and the high mountain peaks were in constant view from the restaurant and the rooms. Stylish and sophisticated bar and restaurant. The atmosphere, and our wining and dining experiences were fabulous! The apartments are extremely spacious, open and inviting. We had previously stayed at the Rees, but this property is far superior. The apartments are nearly... More

We had a three bedroom apt between one couple and four single guys, which worked well. The facility was excellent for location to the mountains and the town and what it had to offer. Our apartment had a great view of the lake and the mountains. (see pics). Would stay again.

The kitchen was dirty. The dishwasher not only didnt work but was dirty on the inside (if that is possible) and there was bits of food... More

Just the place to stay after all day on the mountain. Great size rooms with all what you would want in a room and great customer service from the staff. Car Parking in the hotel is easy and the free shuttle bus to town is a plus. I will always stay here when I go to Queenstown.
