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. Not sure why you did not have instructions as to the lighting of the gas fires as they are (usually) in every room. Can I point out for anyone reading this review it was a One Bedroom... More

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.

One bedroom apartment with full kitchen and washer/dryer, gas and electric heating combined with a lovely elevated view just outside of the CBD. Great 5 night stay made better by very nice, helpful staff. I cannot fault Highview Apartments. The short downhill walk to town centre is pleasant and the hilly ascent wasn't too hard for me, a late 50s... More

Great place to stay. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. We had a gorgeous view looking out over the lake. The apartment was very modern and spacious. We spent a lot of time sitting on the balcony. For those not mobility challenged, short walk to the center of town. Cannot think of even one negative aspect. Well worth the... More
