Apres Ski Apartments
Reviewed February 15, 2014

On a steep hill just above the CBD we stayed in one of the apartments for 3 days for my 50th Birthday. I was getting over a marathon so spent quite a bit of time in the apartments and the views were stunning from the patio. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, and clean - though our rooms weren't made up while we were there. We were invited for drinks and excellent nibbles on the first evening with the hosts and other guests, which was a nice touch.
The TV did not work and neither did the internet but both were eventually fixed. We were told they were using new TV company and a new internet which would be really fast when it was in. This didn't really impress me as I planned to use the internet to book the rest of our trip and also a restaurant as I didn't want to walk the hills with post marathon legs. Overall we had a great time and this was a very nice apartment and very comfortable, but very pricey.

Thank you for coming to stay, glad you enjoyed your stay.

Queenstown is an alpine resort so hills are not avoidable, however we feel blessed to enjoy such stunning views.
The new fast WIFI is working well now, the teething problems were challenging for us all.
We do have tariffs for fully serviced apartments perhaps you might enjoy that option next time.
Kind regards,

LOUISE

Great location with stunning views over the lake. Clean, tidy and modern. Everything you need and very homely. Nice and quiet with little traffic and a short (although very steep) walk into town. Would definitely stay again.

This place was lovely and airy. The room was exceptionally clean and the service was top notch. On the second day we slept in until 9.50 am so assumed we had missed breakfast but the owner rang to make sure we were fed! She was absolutely lovely. The breakfast was simple but very tasteful and personal.
The balcony was lovely and caught the afternoon and evening sun.
Bathroom was great with a big bath and shower with brilliant water pressure. A shame there was no bath fizz or bubbles to go into the bath - I went out to buy some though.
There was no milk, just creamer, so I went out to buy that too. There was a toaster but no cutlery which would make things easier should you fancy some toast in your room.
There is quite a steep climb back up from town, but the owner did give us an alternative, less steep route back up the hill which we chose not to use.
Overall, we were really happy, especially with the service.

Thanks for your review, our studios and Apartments are offered on a self catering basis, we leave the coffee/tea making as an unadvertised extra. Thanks for the comments re some extra plates and cutlery in the studio room we can easily supply these. The complimentary continental breakfast was part of a promotion you choose,we can offer a full breakfast menu at an extra cost, you can sample that on your next visit. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your South Island adventure. Kind regards Louise

We spent the weekend skiing and playing golf in Queenstown. This was the perfect location!
Close proximity to the all the restaurants and bars in central Queenstown. Being up on the hill the apartments had a beautiful view which was a nice way to start the day (along with the home cooked breakfast!).
The room was spacious and had everything you would want. The bed was very comfortable which after a long day skiing or walking around the golf course was great.
Great value for money!

Really enjoyed the week in Queenstown, The apartment was the ideal place to rest the legs after being up the hill.

Cosy living with the fire going a glass of wine and views over the lake and central Queenstown. Close enough to walk anywhere in town but still out of the hustle and bustle. Have booked in to come next year. Thanks Louise, look forward to catching up again soon.

I was a bit apprehensive as I selected this apartment ahead of the one I usually stay at in Queenstown. I was not disappointed. The apartments are located a couple of minutes walk from the center of town but far enough away to enjoy the peaceful beauty Queenstown has to offer. The views from the living area and deck are breathtaking.

I booked the one bedroom apartment for 7 nights and made myself and my family at home. Cooking dinner in the well equipped kitchen, apres ski with friends on the deck and relaxing in front of the fire. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in this spacious, well furnished apartment.

The hostess was extremely welcoming and invited us to experience the home cooked breakfast that is on offer in the B&B that adjoins the apartments. I enjoyed a value for money 3 course breakfast including freshly brewed tea and coffee. Perfect preparation for a big day of heli skiing or if you just want to be spoilt.

I had several friends staying in alternate locations that were less than satisfied, so we are now looking at the option of booking all of the apartments to cater for our groups annual migration to Queenstown.

We can't wait for our next Apres!

This apartment was very well appointed with a warm fire & amazing views of the city, lake & mountains. Just a short walk out of town, perfectly located - just far enough to get the best views.

We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back.
