“Perfect!! Highly recommended!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

during last easter weekends our friends came to visit from australia & asked if we can help finding them a place to stay. after a several investigations, a lot of people suggested us this place & it was the best decision ever! our friends really enjoyed their stay, mostly because the hosts (andy & melanie) are so nice & friendly & very helpful with my friends who's never been to queenstown before. the price was reasonably affordable even though it was on one of their busiest weekend, the room was so tidy & warm & the location! wow! so close to everywhere. My friends had the best times & i would definitely recommend this place to everyone who's planning to come to queenstown.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

I stayed there with my family and we experienced an excellent service. We were very satisfied!! The staff are very friendly & are willing to help whenever we asked. The room is really spacious and clean. Also, it is equipped with modern and stylish furniture. The location of this apartment is really convenient with easy access to everyplace around Queenstown. I personally really recommend this place to stay, especially for family!!!

Apartment was well furnished, clean and warm. It was quiet, too, even though it was located right in downtown. It was good to be able to walk on flat to town centre since I noticed how hilly Queenstown is. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Great place to stay!

Needs update, mould on windows, some windows jammed, very unpleasant musty smell in rooms, no electric blanket. Price should be lower for this budget venue. Location is a positive with easy walk on flat to central town area and gardens.

this place is the perfect place to stay in Queenstown. not only centrally located, the apartment is great. It's clean and tidy, and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
We will definitely stay here again when we're back in Queenstown.

After walking the Routeburn Track it was great to check-in here. Nice 2 BR family unit, clean & warm. Only a few minutes stroll to the town centre. Staff were friendly and helpful. Well furnished apartment, nice and quiet.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Location couldn't be better. Down a short path and you come out right beside the Novotel in the centre of Queenstown. We chose St James due to the fact that there was four of us travelling (2 adults and 2 kids) and wanted two bedrooms at a reasonable price. Unit had a king size bed in one room and two singles in the other. Two bathrooms and a full kitchen. The unit was reasonably modern (although had a projection TV!) and was clean and tidy. Car parking was included. One thing we noticed was that the hallways were a bit smelly (not the rooms). Also as per other reviews, was surprised they expected payment upfront - most unusual. Would stay again however based on room quality and location.

Room Tip: Get on second floor for less foot traffic and good views
