We were welcomed by a friendly staff member and shown to our room. The room felt like it had recently had a fresh coat of paint and was clean and well appointed. The kitchen had everything we required including a slow cooker, microwave & cook top. Tea/coffee/sugar were replenished daily . The beds were very comfortable and even though we... More

If you’re looking for a clean and well-equipped budget accommodation located in central Queenstown, this is the answer. Amber Lodge is a small motel owned by Alan and Sue. First, it’s only a couple of walk to the city central a.k.a Shotover Street. Second, the room is quite spacious and clean, equipped with fast wifi, room heater and heated blanket,... More

We were very happy with our stay in Amber Lodge. We had a four-sleeper room next to reception, which also had a reasonably well-equipped kitchenette. There were plenty of spare blankets which came in handy during the cold nights. The parking in front of the room was also convenient. The gondola is an easy walk, and we found the lodge... More

To start, Queenstown is very beautiful. We were greeted at the lodge by the owner who was very friendly and helpful. The location was great and we were able to walk anywhere we wanted to go in town and to the lake. The rooms were clean and had everything you would need for a short stay. The only thing I... More

Our 2nd floor room had a lovely view of town, comfortable beds, perfect little kitchen and was walkable to all the restaurants, shopping and sites you could need. Wifi, free parking and wonderful, caring people running the place. Would love to go back!

The lodge is located about 70m from the Alpine Supermarket and just a stroll to all the other shops in town. So fantastic just to leave the car there and walk absolutely everywhere especially for dinner etc. The location is absolutely bang-on. The lodge has a modest, older decorating style but is clean. The managers are very friendly and helpful.... More

Good price for Queenstown and being a few minutes' walk from the centre is was close enough without being noisy. Room was a little dated but then most places are compared to the UK. We had a ground floor room with a parking space right outside so that was good. Some of the staff were helpful while others were less... More

Arrived here did not expect the Hilton but was clean and very adequate. Couldn't hear much from town given how close it was. Had room near the front and could hear everyone moving upstairs but that's about all. Location was great just above shotover street and close to four square market in town Centre. I would stay again. 1gb wifi... More

(Please note that this review is based on my stay in Feb 2014.) After a night in the noisy hostel in town, I had to find another place. Without any reservations, I was fortunate to find this place. It's a bit dated, but it's clean and quiet, which is exactly what I needed. There were too many activities and restaurants... More
