This is the second time we have stayed here and I can't fault it in any way. Very obliging staff, nothing is too much trouble. Apartment was inviting, very comfortable and very clean, beds were so comfortable. The view was out over the lake and the mountains and was stunning. Lovely place to stay, totally recommend it.

As a family with 2 young children we wanted somewhere to stay in Queenstown that was comfortable, clean, convienient and centrally located and we definitely found that at Pounamu. The beds were great, the amenities were excellent and the staff were so lovely and helpful. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. We'll be back one day.

We stayed in the lake and mountain view one bedroom fully self contained apartment which is seriously a must if you can afford it. If your looking at these price ranges you probably can. We didn't want to leave, with the heated floors/ towel rail, dim-able lights, gas fire place, full kitchen, laundry and that view you'll understand why when... More

This review is actually a long time coming. I am a world traveler, and I apologize that this took so long. I stayed here in Jan-Feb 2010 (the form insisted I say 2015 at the earliest). The owners were there at the front desk, and it was one of the few places that actually had a computer in the room... More

We love staying at Pounamu. One of the best views in Queenstown and always very comfortable. Beds are amazing. Heated floor and fire place just give it the best feeling in winter once the kids are asleep and we can have a wine with the fire and that view. We will be back again!

Whilst the web site did say "no views" what it doesn't say is that for more than 300 bucks a night you get the tiniest room you can imagine. It is absolutely the worst value place I have ever stayed in New Zealand. Don't take the propaganda they write seriously. On their website it is impossible to judge just how... More

Visited for two nights in a non-Lakeview room but wished we had upgraded for the amazing lake views. The room (studio) was very small and below ground level, so could be claustrophobic for some-a shared entry way & washing/drying facilities may not suit all travellers. Allocated parking & very helpful service at Reception (thank you Charlotte) made our stay very... More

Very happy with the apartment, it was comfortable and clean. Staff were all very kind and nothing was a problem. Close enough to the main town if you want to walk but easy enough to get a taxi if need be.

Great apartment, had everything you could need for a short stay. Cozy, romantic, relaxing and beautiful views. it was great waking up and enjoying a coffee with the fire going, watching the sun rise over snow capped mountains. Staff were very friendly and very helpful. Would love to go and stay again. Thank you for making our stay a memorable... More

We stayed in a one bedroom lake view apartment for 4 nights (26Aug-30Aug 2016) and couldn't fault our stay. On arrival we were asked which type of milk we preferred for the room and then shown around the apartment; shown how to work the gas fire, the appliances and given some local info. Apartment was stocked with everything you could... More
