We had a great time at the Pounamu Apartments, there was everything there you could want to cook a meal, not that we went much past breakfast as Queenstown offers so many great places to eat. Clean, modern, all the amenities and great views of the lake. The lounge opened up directly to the outside, which made it sort of like an indoor deck. The beds were superb, once settled never moved and had the best nights sleeps.

Room Tip: If you like to sit outside the upstairs rooms have a deck with outdoor furniture

The Pounamu apartments were ideally located just a 10 -15 minute stroll into Queenstown. Beautifully furnished and a view to die for over the lake and mountains. The Reception team were extremel helpful and welcomed us with two bottles of complimentary wine. They organised several trips and made us feel at home, nothing was too much trouble.

The apartments were beautifully furnished and had all mod cons including Dishwasher, Washing machine and tumble dryer. Wifi was free.

All in all a perfect stay!

The apartments made my first encounter to the South Island memorable, for the right reasons. Beautifully appointed, ultra clean and everything one could want and more. Fantastic!!!!! So close to Queenstown central, we almost walked, almost!!

Room Tip: A room with a balcony has amazing scenic views....

Having stayed in Queenstown before and been very dissapointed with previous accomodation was determined to get it right this time and made the best choice with Pounamu. Got a first floor one bed apartment with incredible view over lake and mountains - loved the modern uncluttered design of apartment, there is everything you need to cook a full meal and even free use of washing machine and tumble dryer complete with complimentary eco detergent. Luxury bedding, free Wifi, a computer and printer provided, free parking and everything we needed for our 8 night stay. Leo and Priscilla both charming and helpful, gave us free chocolate and wine for booking trips etc. We only stay in apartments or suites when available and this compares with the best anywhere. I cant understand the comments about lack of maid service or no toiletry replacements - it's a SELF CATERING apartment not a hotel,thats why we choose apartments we dont want maids disturbing us. There is some road noise but not when panoramic windows are shut and much less noise than when we stayed in central Queenstown before - have no hesitation in recommending these apartments

We would like to say a big thank you to the the staff, as they made our stay so enjoyable. Our room was amazing and so clean. It's a 10-15min walk into town which suited us perfectly as it was very quite. It was our anniversary so they gave us a complementary bottle of wine and chocolates which were lovely. Would recommened this place to anyone!

The accommodations were large and comfortable. We had a fireplace, nice stereo, full kitchen, great views. But for the price and with all the choices in Queenstown I'd recommend something different. The walk into town is a bit far, especially in the cold, and there are many other choices closer to the center. There is no maid service, and we weren't prepared with our own laundry detergent, etc. The staff is only available until 8pm at the desk, and doesn't start until 8am; this inconvenienced us a few times. However, the staff was attentive and helped with several local reservations.
