Out apartment was roomy with outstanding views, and had all the amenities of home, with the added bonus of a fantastic gas fire that really pumped out the heat. Easy walk into village. Only negative was that an unexpected water issue meant we had no TV reception over an entire night, when we had planned a lovely night in by...

The views of the Remarkables are great, the apartment was warm, well equipped and very comfortable - it even had a gas fire and the double-glazed windows cut out the noise from the road. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. As it is just a 10 minute walk into town, we could leave the car in the garage and...

Could not fault the Pounamu Apartments. Had an amazing time and the room and location was faultless. The room was well appointed and met all our needs. Rooms are not serviced during the stay so you need to bring enough toiletries with you to cover any longer stay. Will definitely stay again.

It is our life time memory with Pounamu in NZ. Pounamu is surely the best hotel that we have ever stayed with finest lake view and SPA services. Its location is convenient with the best lake view as far as I see. We will definitely book again next time we visit Queenstown.

The best part of the apartment was the view... amazing views out onto the lake and mountains. Everything was there that we needed - laundry, kitchen. A short walk into town (around 10-15 minutes). Pricey - but then so is everything in Queenstown. Worth it I think to stay somewhere with such amazing views.

The apartments were lovely and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and the under cover car parking was great. Our apartment was very small and the bed was very lumpy. Get a new bed and it will be near perfect.

We stayed for a few days before a trek. The staff were welcoming, the appartment was exactly what we wanted and they kindly held our bags till our return. The views over the lake and walking distance into town make this a very good base for a holiday in Queenstown.

The accommodation was beautiful. I couldn't fault it. The view was fab. Very quiet and no road noise. It was close enough to walk into Christchurch which we did. Washing facilities were shared between 2 units. Very convenient. We stay here again it was great.

Great base camp for activities in Queenstown. A 15 minute walk or a $10NZD taxi ride to center of town. Now, get this, we got an early check in! A first here for the Tucson Desert Rats, it is just as nice as we always thought it would be. The views from the luxury apartment were amazing. We were two...
