These apartments and rooms are set on the lake around 5kms outside Queenstown (there are buses every 15 mins and cabs can be called), between the town and the airport (it's a ten minute drive to the airport which is great!)
The staff are just so lovely and friendly and there's a really laid back atmosphere which immediately sets you in holiday mode.
The road is a little busy but it's not really a problem as most motels on this road are on the roadside! We were in room 201A which is a lovely light-filled end room with lots of space. The beds are comfortable, everything's pretty minimalistic and it's neat and tidy. I loved having the fridge as we could make our own food as we needed (there's also a toaster which is so handy!)
The showers - oh the showers!!! They are brilliant; I was a little disappointed I didn't get a bath (as the apartments have baths) but the shower more than made up with it - the pressure is excellent and the shower room huge!
We were part of a large group and one of the days we had a big BBQ on site, near the lake, which was just beautiful. It's perfect for anyone wanting a casual affair before going out and great for families too.
There's also a cafe just opened called the Boathouse just beside the place, it's great for coffees and food, though queues may be a little long sometimes!
