I am really confused why this "hotel" has so many five stars rating and described as a "small luxury hotel". My husband and I were traveling for 3wks and combined our stays with hotels and Airbnb. Queenstown, was the place I wanted to splurge and stayed at a really nice hotel - but what a disappointment!!! Here are my reasons:... More

We stayed in a very comfortable 1 bedroom apartment. It was very clean and had a well equipped kitchen, loved the gas fire and the underfloor heating. A walk into the town centre is around 25 minutes. There is easy access to the lakeside walking and biking trails which is right out the back. Unfortunately the TV channels on offer... More

Stayed for 10 days in a one bedroom lakefront apartment during the recent 2016 ski season and loved every minute. Our apartment was blissfully quiet with no passing foot traffic either and being away from the road had zero traffic noise (had No 18). Full glass front provided a gorgeous uninterrupted view of the lake and the Remarkables. The apartment... More

Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We are so pleased you had such an enjoyable stay. Just to clarify for future visitors - we are blessed in Queenstown with no biting insects in summer. There are no mosquitos and no sandflies! The only insects we have are a few flies and moths. While the main road is busy,... More

This place in all the places where we have stayed in Queenstown and Wanaka is the best hands down. It's not five star hotel, but more like a home away from home. Very comfy and clean apartments! That view we had was amazing, our apartment was right on top of the hill and the view was exceptional! We will be... More

this review is bit late. We stayed here last year in December 2015. Although it is a bit more expensive than most places, it is absolutely worth it. Good customer service, helpful staff.

Overall excellent, in particular the view, the extremely helpful staff and the comfortable villa. The amenities in the Villa are good and made it easy to prepare meals. With the fire place, electrical blankets and the heated bathroom floors, we were kept cosy. We did find the parking a little challenging, but was do-able in a big 4WD.

It's hard not to love this place Pros - close to the town (but probably not a walk in the cold of winter) - warm with the fire on on our arrival - stunning lake views - comfortable beds - complimentary sweets as it was a return visit for us - you can plug an HDMI cable into the TV... More

Queenstown is short of snow this year, but we had travelled to take our wee girl to see her first snow. The one bedroom apartment we had was perfect. We were able to rent a cot/crib and enjoyed a quiet night watching tv in bed while she slept comfortably in the lounge. In our short two night stay, the reasonably... More
