The apartment was clean, well appointed and spacious for three of us. We especially love the stunning lake views! Conveniently located and near to the town. We stayed for 3 nights and felt it was too short and didn't want to leave. We willbe back!

Stayed here in Late January. Couldn't fault the apartment and the view is fantastic, over the Lake, The Mountains and the Town.Its a 10 minute walk to get right into town. There is a great fire for when it is cold.Will stay here again.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment (made by joining a studio and a 1 bed apartment) for a week, and can only echo others' fulsome praise of Highview. Welcome very warm, and staff uniformly helpful and friendly throughout. The apartments are spacious and very well equiped. Everything worked, and the showers are as good as anything that I have experienced.

The location is ideal from my point of view. Just 10min walk from town directly (and 20min, more scenically, if you walk away from town for a few minutes and then down the lower One Mile Creek trail past a little waterfall, thence along the foreshore) which gets you away from the hubbub, and up just high enough to get gorgeous views of town and the Remarkables across the lake.

Room Tip: The studios are at the back. Go for the 1 bed apartments with balcony.

Our Family stayed at the 1BR+1Studio apartment for 5 days - it is a tidy, smart apartment with a great, clean kitchen and utensils. The view from the apartment out on to the lake and mountains is just simply stunning (you can just stay on your balcony all day enjoying the view!)

The gym is quite small, but usable if you require a little exercise (and watch TV at the same time).
There is also a BBQ and a Spa handy at the same area.

We loved how the apartment was a somewhat like a hotel...but handy like a home! It really has everything you need...from cups to internet (free)!!

One friendly tip...if you have little kids or elderlies or clumsy people (like me) in your group, watch out for the furniture legs.. they're squared and they are mortal enemies to your toes!!

Room Tip: One Bedroom rooms tend to have balconies, and the higher the room is, the more stunning the view...

Stayed at highview apartments for almost a week in the early new year.

Location-
In a good location that's a 10 min walk from town walking uphill

Rooms
The rooms had really good appliances. Very small tv though and I actually struggled to see tv from bed. No fan ceiling in room.

Service rooms
Only had room cleaned once in our stay and would have been nice to have the shampoo and conditioner replenished especially since it was a longer stay.

Extras
Wifi Internet was very good speed, speed at night is very slow, must of been at high demand.

Spa is fantastic and very well maintained.

BBQ was a great extra and allowed us to cook our own meal. Would be nice of they had a table and chairs around BBQ area as we used spa as preparing area.

The gym is a major disappointment, I had one treadmill, one bike and a universal machine too do 3 exercises. I don't see the point of advertising that you have a gym. People such as myself stayed because of this reason and was really disappointing. They would serve better not to have advertised a gym at all and it being an extra surprise instead of drawing people in because they have a gym and getting disappointed when they see what they have called a gym.

Overall it was a great stay just didn't live up to expectations as it was so highly rated.

We stayed at the Clarion Suites for a week and were most impressed with the quality of the accommodation and the outstanding service. Our great experience began from our initial email inquiry to Julie, who answered our questions promptly and was ever so helpful. We had a unit on the ground floor which overlooked Lake Wakatipu. The kitchen was fabulous, as we liked to cook our evening meals and the view was superb. We would highly recommend these apartments to visitors and tourists.

Room Tip: Try and obtain a room with view over Lake Wakatipu as this is picture postcard material!

We have stayed at the Highview Apartments twice now and will definitely be back again. We enjoy the proximity to the centre of queenstown yet the apartments are extremely quiet. We regard them as our little bit of luxury/home away from home.

Room Tip: We recommend paying more for the 1 bedroom apartment and enjoy the views from the balcony as well as...
