“Fantastic Pad for a Queenstown Adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2009

There were four adults in our group, and all of us loved the apartments. We arrived after five days of treking, hiking and travelling, so the modern amenities of the apartments were more than welcomed. It was great to have an in-room washer and dryer for the dirty clothes, and the computer with internet was a great way to catch up on email and news. The apartment had a spectacular view and was a 15 minute walk to the heart of Queenstown.

The staff were fantastic, as well. Would definitely recommend this place for a group or a family.

Fantastic location - 15mins walk from centre of town; amazing design - functional (steam-proof bathroom mirror), computer AND free Internet; great view of lake; cheap and very comfortable.
If all hotels were like this, the world would be a better place!

This place is amazing! We were on a busy schedule whilst in Queenstown but it was lovely to come back to our gorgeous apartment at the end of the day. We didn't want to leave again to go out to dinner! The apartments are beautifully set up & the views are incredible. Great privacy. Definatly recommend for everybody! By far the best place to stay in Queenstown.

Imagine a place just near the hub of town to enjoy a good meal or visit the beautiful buildings that abound but far enough not to be plagued by the noise. The apartments are absolutely gorgeous. Sleek and modern with all the comforts of home and more. The views of the lake are incredible. The whole aura reeks of sophisticated elegance and divine for a weekend of romance or just for a luxurious treat. The staff are welcoming yet unobtrusive. All you really need is a bottle of bubble (the drinking and bathing kind) and the chocolates , fireplace and surround sound are all provided.

A very well priced apartment, very comfortable and roomy, with all amenities except for pool and hot tub. Would be nice if spa was on site. Internet needs improvement.

These apartments are absolutely beautiful. The rooms are clean & spacious. Reception staff are very friendly and willing to help you with anything you need. The apartments are in walking distance to Queenstown approx 10 minutes. THe view of the mountain ranges is something else. If you can afford to stay here you will not be disappointed. I would suggest these apartments are not for people with disabilities, there are no lifts and a few stairs. Might be a idea to call Pounamu up if you are concerned about the stairs, as we were told behind Pounamu apartments.

My husband, 2 year old and I stayed at Pounamu Apartments for 6 nights. The apartment was clean, new and modern. It was an absolute pleasure to return to the apartment after a day of skiing to sit and relax. I would reccommend it to anyone. The only disadvantage would be road noise from the main road, which you don't hear once you close the doors and shutters to the bedroom!!
