Cranbury Court Apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 31, 2007

I am writing from the Best Western Cranbury Court, where we are staying for 4 nights. This is not a motel in the traditional sense. Rather, the units are individually owned condo apartments, managed by Best Western. We had booked a one bedroom unit. However, when we arrived, the management had upgraded us, with no additional charge, to a two bedroom unit.

Each unit comes with a complete kitchen, washer/dryer, DVD player and TV, of course. Parking is off street and readily accessible to the unit. It is possible to rent a DVD from the reception's well stocked selection for $5NZ.

The units are 10 years old. They are clean and modern. Staff are universally helpful and friendly. The only "complaint" I have is that, contrary to other Best Western accommodations where I have stayed, there is a charge to access the Internet wi-fi. Other than that, it is top rate. I strongly recommend this accommodation.

Note that one of the reviews complained of the noise on the street. We have a unit that is facing the main road. We did not find noise to be a problem.

Stayed at Cranbury Court in April 06 after reading other traveller feedback and would also recommend it. Spacious and well-maintained apartments, and quiet if you request an apartment in the second row back from Gorge Road. A Meditteranean foodmarket is just across the road and it is a flat walk of around 5 minutes to the main town area

We stayed here for five days for a family vacation/getaway. Booked it unseen over the internet from the USA. The rooms are basically like having a modern apartment to yourself. We had an upstairs/downstairs three bedroom configuration (though we only booked for two). HUGE picture window made up one entire two story wall and gave incredible view of snow covered mountain - absolutely stunning. Has its own private balcony. If you want a fully self-sufficient pad - one block from the supermarket and an easy walk into town and the gondolla - this is your spot. The staff were warm and incredibly helpful.

One small complaint but nothing that detracted from the stay: noisey neighbors (but you should expect that with all the younguns in the middle of winter).

They didnt charge us for the baby crib.

The apartment was modern and spotless and the staff were great. I was so pleasantly suprised. We had a wonderful stay - great value too.

This was the only disappointing accommodation during our recent holiday in wonderful New Zealand. The apartments are near a busy road and get a lot of traffic noise. On Friday and Saturday night, there was also a lot of noise in the early hours from groups of drunken lads walking along the road outside. Take care when leaving the complex via the steeper exit - the sharp dip may catch the trim at the front of a small car. Otherwise okay.

I stayed at the Cranbury Court Best Western apartments/suites and it was fantastic. The three bedroom apartments have a fully stocked kitchen and you own balcony to eat dinner on with views of the lake and the gondolas. It was extremely clean and comfortable..very cozy. The cost was very reasonable for what you are recieving and it is within walking distance to the middle of town. Overall, if I ever get back to Queenstown, no dobut, I will definately stay there. I would reccomend this to anyone, families, couples, it was all around superb.

Just come back from a week in Queenstown and stayed at Cranbury Court apartments!! There's only one word to describe this property... FANTASITC! For something so nice, the price was very reasonable. 3 minute walk to the centre of town, no hills to hike up or down, supermarket across the road, very large modern sized rooms, massive living area, and very clean. Fully self contained kitchen, however if you dont feel like making breakfast, why not order a continental one delivered to your door? You could request room service daily or if you didnt require it, that was fine too. Good size and clean bathroom, comfy beds, looking outside you have views of the Gondola and if your in a 2 or 3 bedroom apartment you have lake views.
Need to book a day trip? Dont go into town just go to recpetion, they are more than happy to help you out! they checked out the up coming weather for us (as we were there to ski), gave us a private room to store our ski's and luggage after we checked out. Overall this is property is a hidden jewl in the heart of Queenstown. 10 out of 10 for everything about it! You would regret not staying here!
