Spent 2 nights here in June 2016. Accommodation is fine, for what I paid, very reasonable. Arrived late afternoon, office was not open however instructions were clear when I advised I would be arriving outside of office hours. There is a courtesy phone outside the office door and Craig picked up the phone after a few rings. Check in was... More

The room was warm and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. Staff were very nice. The views of the lake and mountains were wonderful. We had a small kitchenette, which was a really great bonus. The walk along the Frankton Trail (alongside the lake) was really good. It took about half an hour, because we took the long way around... More

Quiet and amazing views. The room was warm when we arrived and stayed warm throughout. The bed was a bit uncomfortable and could use a new mattress but other than that it was excellent accommodation. The wifi was hard to connect to, and the cell data coverage was 'iffy' but when you're on holiday thats not a terrible thing.

A lovely weekend away and spent in a top location. Our room was quiet with lovely views and great access to the superb Queenstown trail. From here we were 15 minutes walk into town. Amenities were adequate and we loved the peaceful atmosphere.

Receptionist was very nice,they had warmed up the room for us ..enough parking space,spacious rooms and amazing views ! But those days you kind of assume free wifi,not paying ridiculous money for it (literally cheaper to buy data for your phone than use their internet ). Overall i loved it,but wouldn't return until they sort their internet out.

Fabulous place. Amazing views. I would recommend and would certainly go back. Only a couple of minor things could improve, heating was fine for us but if it was colder it may not be enough? Great service.

Great views and location. Good value for money. Unit was clean and tidy but some basic maintenance was required and should have been checked. Oven and fridge lights not working. Toaster only worked if you held the button down and 2 main lights in the dining/living area were not working which made room a bit gloomy in the evening.
