This is our third stay at these apartments over the last decade. The views, location (we enjoy being away from the busy part of town and the walk into town) and the space are what brings us back. As we are aware that each apartment is individually owned and furnished we particularly requested one that had been recently renovated. The kitchen, bathroom, carpets etc were in good condition but the furnishings were certainly not current and were lacking, and seriously it had the ugliest lounge suite!! This was disappointing given our request; we viewed another apartment (no. 7) which was being cleaned and it was fabulous - tasteful and current; doesn't make sense that the standard can vary so much but the rate is constant.

The usual managers were away (May is very quiet in Queenstown) so things were lacking in that department also. Our apartment did not get made up one day although we put out the sign albeit in the middle of the day, but there was no instruction to have the sign out by a certain time. Also we had an urgent plumbing problem on the last night and were unable to raise management. We were financially compensated when we paid our bill but would have preferred a good night's sleep.

If one had been allocated unit 7 and under usual managment the rating could easily be a 5; but with our experience this time around I can only give it a 3. However, the rates were good for this off-season period.

We travelled with another couple and stayed for 7 nights at Spinnaker Bay. It suited us perfectly with 2 double rooms and 2 bathrooms. The host was very friendly and helpful. The kitchen had everything we needed, including dishwashing liquid and fresh tea towels every day. The view was glorious and there was a heater and woodfire. Very pleasant walk into town and even a garage for our hire car. We are definitely planning to stay here again. We absolutely highly recommend this property!

We stayed here with a large group and the 3brm units were perfect. Management happily offered to have two single beds in each bedroom.

Sure, the decor is a little tired. But everything was in perfect working order and spotlessly clean. The free WiFi was a bonus, especially for those of us from overseas.

The complex is an easy 15 minute walk to town via the lakefront. (Yes, there is a steep driveway up to the road, if you choose to walk that way.)

Would recommend for those looking for good quality, clean, affordable accommodation.

We stayed at Spinnaker Bay for 3 nights, with another couple. The 2 bedroom apartment was very good in terms of space, views, service and comfort. Beds were great and having 2 bathrooms was excellent. Cooking and laundry facilities were also more than adequate. Papers were delivered each morning and the apartment was serviced daily. The views across the lake were nothing less than spectacular and the long spring evenings allowed us to enjoy them for many twilight hours. The stairs and steep site could be a problem for anyone a little unsteady on their feet, and the 15-20 minute walk into the centre of Queenstown wouldn't be for everyone - a flat and pleasant-enough walk once you got down to lake level. We were pleased with our choice for the most part and would have loved the time to make use of the sunny courtyard and barbecue.

6 days at these apartments were not enough - two levels, quiet, loved the wood fire - views morning and afternoon over Lake unbeatable - walked to CBD once - but then used the car - 5 minute drive. Friendly host. Certainly will be first choice in queenstown next time. Discounted price was right.

Room Tip: every apartment would appear to have great views.
