We stayed for 3 nights in the downstairs 2-bedroom apartment with beautiful views. Housekeeping and linen replacement was done each day. Washer and dryer was available as well which was extremely handy. A clothes airer or string line under the decking would be the cherry on top. Sis, the owner, was very welcoming and friendly. The price was suitable for... More

If it's privacy and your own space you want without the price tag, this is the place! Bedrooms and bathrooms are very nice. From a green perspective, place could be better insulated but very warm. Fantastic views and owners are lovely!

We stayed in the downstairs 2 bedroom apartment, it was amazing. Neat and Clean with all the facilities we needed. The laundry was helpful to do our mid holiday washing while being able to stay in pyjamas. Free wifi was fast and much better than most places we had tried in. The views are amazing and there is an area... More

Balmoral Lodge was a bit tricky to find from the street as the nav man we had was trying to take us past on the opposite side of the road. I think some additional signage would have fixed that. The owner greeted us on arrival and showed us through the accommodation. After some of the places we stayed in, this... More

This place was sensational! We struggled to find the entrance (it's on the hill side of the street) but once we did- it was well worth the effort The owners were very warm and friendly. The bedrooms were well sized and very well appointed. The living area was comfortable! Should I return to Queenstown, I will also look to return... More

We were travelling with another couple and booked the two bedroom suite. The rooms were excellent and the living room/kitchen area was roomy with a great view of the lake/mountains/city. Outdoor seating in good weather would be a plus. Although you are very close to the heart of Queenstown, it is a hike up the hill, so I would recommend... More
