Our stay in Queenstown at Pounamu Apartments was the highlight of our 2 week trip to NZ! We had originally booked a small studio apartment out the back but on arrival, the staff were happy to show us both options (a full apartment with lake view) before allowing us to upgrade. The additional charge was well worth it!
The view of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables is just breathtaking! Adding to this, the apartment was spacious, very clean, well furnished and came with the most comfortable bed we have every slept on in a hotel! Parking was underground and only a short walk from the room down a flight of stairs. Staff were very friendly and always helpful.
The under floor heating made a huge difference to the temperature in the room and we were able to enjoy many a glasses of wine in front of the gas fire heater.
Location was great too! The centre of town was only a 10 minute stroll down the road and when it came time to fly out, the airport was a 10min drive away (with a handy couple of petrol stations on the way to fill up the rental car).
We would definitely come back to Pounamu as we had a fantastic stay! Would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone!
