My wife and I went to New Zealand for Christmas and New Years to complete a few of the Great Walks on our list. Instead of staying in boring Te Anau, we decided to make Queenstown our home base between tramps for the duration of our trip. When researching places to stay, we wanted a place walking distance to town, small and personable, and a place that would be flexible with all our planned trips in and out of Queenstown. We were extremely pleased we selected the Chalet Queenstown.
Needless to say, the Chalet Queenstown met all of requirements and more! Alex, the proprietor, was extremely accommodating with all of our trips (even stowing our luggage while off in the wilderness). He made us feel right at home with his made-to-order eggs for breakfast, Christmas decorations, and even a little gift from Santa on Christmas morning (thank you Alex!).
Since we were in and out during our visit we had the opportunity to try 3 different rooms. I can't say we have a favorite room, they were all lovely, clean and just the right amount of decorations for the size. All of the rooms have jaw dropping views of the lake and mountains plus a balcony. The balcony is a perfect place to relax before dinner with a nice beverage and soak in the beauty surrounding Queenstown.
We called the Chalet Queenstown home for a total of 8 nights and we would be willing to call it home again on our next visit to Queenstown. There will be a next visit too!
