I have stayed at Turner Heights Apartments twice in four visits to Queenstown and it is my favourite accommodation. Sure it is located at the top of a steep hill, but I found this year my fitness level must have improved as it didn't bother me as much as the first time. You need to be on the hill to get the truly spectacular views and watch the Lady of the Lake as she chugs up and down Lake Wakatipu.
The rooms are clean, but you do need to be mindful that they are holiday units owned by other people and to take care to empty all rubbish and return all items to where you found them before leaving. No great drama, common courtesy really. If you don't want to clean up after yourself then it is best to stay in a hotel.
There are full cooking facilities and laundry facilities in most units. I believe 5A and 6A are the single bedroom units and these don't have a laundry. We used the staff laundry which was available late afternoon until 8pm with no problems for the week that we stayed.
The staff were friendly and helpful, though the wifi was a bit expensive but there are free hotspots around Queenstown.
The security to the unit doors could be a little better, it is just a single lock. Maybe I'm used to life on the Gold Coast with dead bolts and triple locks on all my doors.
I will definitely stay again on my next visit.
