My partner and I wanted to spoil our selves for our two week skiing holiday so thought we would splash out as much as we could afford. The place looks fantastic in the photos but the view out of our window was the only think that really lived up to the photos. The place photographs well but under the surface... More

Thank you for taking time to write a review about Highview, we are saddened that we didn't reach your exceptions and are really shocked that you didn't mention your concerns to our team. We do take a lot of care and pride in our place and although we didn't build the structure are wary of things that need repairing, and... More

Great hotel in an excellent location within walking distance from town! Very clean room and comfortable bed. Shower played up a bit switching between freezing cold and scalding hot. Wifi logs itself out every time You lock your phone but hey when in queenstown explore more of the city and spend less time on your phone

Great facilities, very clean, lovely staff, warm room with comfy beds. Only down fall is the 5min walk to the centre of Queenstown is down quiet a steep hill. However this does come in handy to walk off all the Ferg Burgers consumed during the holiday. Highly recommended!!

Situated about 10min walk from the CBD these apartments are well located and offer an unbelievable view. We stayed with 2 kids in a two bedroom apartment and were more than comfortable with the space and layout. It was great the kids having their own bathroom and the room being situated down the hallway as well as own TV. Kitchen... More

Stayed here with a friend last September whilst travelling round New Zealand. Apartment was small but had everthing we needed. Had a large carpark and wifi. Staff on reception very helpful. Location is perfect. Takes about 10minutes to walk down to the shops/restaurants in queenstown. Views all around Queenstown are stunning! Plenty to do in the area. The biggest must... More

Absolutely amazing, stayed here for a week while we went snowboarding. Everything was beautiful, they have a spa and fitness room for guest use. Would definitely stay again I loved it! Super close to town as well so we walked in every night to have dinner

Stayed 3 nights in a studio apartment and very pleased we did. A well appointed apartment with kitchen, washing machine, gas and electric heating, as well as underfloor heating in kitchen and bathroom. View was awesome over the lake as well as down to the township. We had a rental car so location out of the centre of town was... More

Thank you for your comments Dominic, we are looking into the content of our compendiums at the moment so your review was timely.

I am writing this review on day four of six staying at the Highview Apartments... My girlfriend and myself had treated ourselves to a Queenstown holiday from Perth. Our first room we were given looked amazing. Top floor lake view, all was well... Until ten minutes into cooking a frozen pizza (we were tired) our oven glass shattered! The receptionist... More

We didn't have a room with a view but it was reasonably priced in a good location near town. The room did feel quite small but the staff were welcoming and it was perfectly fine for a short stay. Would upgrade to lake views for a longer stay. Overall we were satisfied.
