“spacious & great location”
Reviewed August 25, 2009

We stayed at the Amber Lodge in Queenstown in January 2009. We had a very spacious room, more like an apartment. Everything was spacious, lounge, kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms, and one of the two bedrooms had its own en-suite. The decor was a bit dated and the couches were about falling apart, you sink right through them... rather uncomfortable. For such an open & spacious suite/room, we found it hard to get a good air flow going through and it was very stuffy in the heat of summer, but had a big balcony where you could go for fresh air, though no outdoor seating on the balcony. It was the best location! Literally a 2 minute walk to the town, if even. It’s so handy to everything. I think if they added some outdoor furniture to the balcony, or put in air conditioning and got new couches it would be worth staying there again.

Reviewed August 7, 2008

After check in and inspecting the rooms we were unable to stay in this low class motel, not a 3 star! It was extremely dirty! Dust bunnies everywhere! Coffee stains down the side of the fridge. The master closet wouldn't close, dirty carpet and sofa! Looked like a back packers! All for the cheap price of $135 - $170. . I was very diappointed with the condition of this accomodation. The bed coverings and carpet were obviously well loved by many travellers. It's time to refurbish. However on the possitive side it is close to town .

WE did not spend the night here, plently of superior accomodation available for simmilar prices.
