Very helpful and pleasant receptionist, big apartment with views to die for from both bedrooms and living areas, very comfortable with kitchen and laundry so a bonus to be able to do the laundry (powder was supplied) was great to have a bathroom for each bedroom. We walked in and would have been happy to just sit and admire the scenery :-)

Room Tip: We were in a two bedroom apartment but I can't see how any rooms wouldn't be excellent

We have just returned from an amazing holiday in Queenstown which was made so much more enjoyable with our stay at Spinnaker Bay for 12 nights. We stayed in a 2 bed apartment overlooking the most incredibly beautiful views from the veranda and bedrooms, of the Remarkable snow capped mountains and lake. The apartment was spotless. Jude, the manager was wonderful and friendly, and assisted with everything we asked of her. The pool was heated and also had stunning views. The walk into town with a 5 year old took about 20 minutes along the waterfront. I just cant say enough about our stay and would recommend the Spinnaker Bay apartments to everyone.

Room Tip: We stayed in apartment 11 and it was amazing. Stunning views.

The place was clean to the T, the receptionist always friendly and helpful. Staying made me feel at home, everything I need is available. We were able to leave with our clothes already wash and ready for the next leg of our journey of the South Island. There's a walkway to go to town by foot, just a short 20 minute walk and get the exercise, leading to Queenstown Garden. Definitely a place to stay.

Stayed two nights. The apartment could not have had a better view of the lake and mountains and was nicely equipped. Judy ( manager ) was very helpful and friendly. Advised us to choose the jet boat which toured lake and lower part of river, which we enjoyed very much, but having caught a glimpse of the canyons further up the Shotover river, we slightly regretted not doing the Shotover jet instead/as well.
Walk into town from apartment is 25 mins if you go right round the lakeside park, but if you time it right, you get beautiful sunset views towards the end of walk.
Would stay there again.

We have stayed at Spinnaker Bay many times over the years and it never fails to deliver. Very comfortable apartments, amazing views and excellent hosts.

Although a bit out of the central area of Queenstown it is a very pleasant and easy 15/20 minute walk along the lake edge into town.

We stayed with family visitors from the UK recently and they were very impressed. We had 2, two bedroom apartments between 6 of us and we were very warm and comfortable. Very good kitchen facilities meant that we could cook and dine in whenever we wanted. The New World supermarket just up the road in Frankton was a convenient source of supplies.

Room Tip: All apartments have great views, just pick one with the number of bedrooms to suit.

The apartments are located a short walk out of town, not that you can make it without hailing a cab. Great proprietors, they were very helpful. Plus a great view across the lake at the mountains that lacked fresh snow.

We stayed 7 nights in a three bedroom apartment at Spinnaker Bay. The owners were wonderful and so helpful for us.
A little dated but it felt just like home for the week. Warm, cozy and beautiful views all day everyday!
Would definitely stay again!
