“Excellent value for money! [NO REGRETS!]”
Reviewed December 16, 2011

We stayed in the Whistler Holiday Apartments for 4 nights and we must say that this motel is one of the best accomodation that we have had as we travel around the amazing South Island. The rooms were especially clean and spacious with white modern designs, offering us an extremely pleasant and comfortable stay in Queenstown. The balcony also offers a fantastic view of the famous Skyline Gondola (and paragliders) as well as some of the rugged mountains surrounding Queenstown. Whistler is conveniently located on Gorge Road, which is just a 5 minute short walk from the city centre (where most of the shopping is), the FreshChoice supermart, and also the petrol station. What really impressed us was the quality service provided by the staff. The knowledgeable staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Not only did they help us book most of the activities that we wanted to do in Queenstown, but they were also very willing to help us book our accomodation for the subsequent days of our trip. The best thing is, we only paid an easily affordable price of NZ$145 per night! However, there's one slight drawback. The laundry machine would take a couple of hours before it completes one whole process and it also leaves the laundry rather damped even after drying them. Other than that, we find ourselves very lucky to book this apartment through Queenstown's i-site and we absolutely recommend this motel to anyone that's visiting Queenstown, be it a short or a long stay.

We stayed in the Whistler for three nights whilst in Queenstown on our trip around the south island. The rooms were very comnfortable clean and modern. We had a nice view of the mountains from the balcony. The only thing we would comment on is that the bedroom is located closest to the walkway and that the light remains on all night which makes the room quite bright. Other than this the stay was perfect. The Whistler is in a great location with a short 5 minute walk to the CBD. The hosts were very friendly and were great at helping us find things to do in and around Queenstown. The cooking facilities were more than adequate for making a great breakfast.
We would definately reccommend and would return to the Whistler any time!

No regret to stay at Whistler! Excellent service and experienced management team. Jan and Wayne are very professional, friendly and helpful which made our trip so relaxing and enjoyable.They made sure we made the most of our trip. Jane and Wayne have been taken care of us (and all their guests) very well from suggesting the day trips, ensuring we had clean towels for the Onsen Spa trip, clear demonstration of how to use the washing machine... The reception opens quite early in the morning sometime 7am. They have been so wonderful and we could not ask for more.
Fantanstic location, short walk to town, close to supermarket, bus stop and opposite to Skyline. Reasonable apartment size with all required amennities: heated bathroom, washing machine, full kitchen...The rooms are clean and tidy.
The highlights of the stay were: warm welcoming, excellent service, great location and good value for money accomodation.
Yes, we would definately stay again.

We stayed at the Whistler apartments for six days from the 18th September, as mentioned by previous reviewers these are lovely spacious apartments with all mod cons and a few extra. Under floor heating in the bathroom along with a washer dryer was fabulous. The bins were emptied each day so no problem there, it got a bit chilly at night so the extra radiators were very much appreciated. Sky tv - great for those early mornings when jet lag has you up at ridiculous o'clock. Also, there is a great dvd library in reception for those nights when you want to curl up in front of a fab film. Supermarket is five minutes up the road.
The ski bus to Coronet Peak and Cardrona is a short walk at Creeksyde, oh there is a locked ski room to use too. I liked the fact that is isn't slap bang in the town but a short walk past the rugby pitch and squash courts, it takes you past most of the shops where you can chuck yourself off virtually anything.
We did the fly\cruise\fly trip to Milford Sound - absolutely stunning and well worth the extra money to actually fly over some quite stunning scenery. We had planned to do a parascending trip on our last morning but the high wind put paid to that idea.
I would most definitely stay here again.

The apartments are really nice, super clean and with all the amenities you need. But the standout has to be the service - those guys could not do enough to help us out. We unfortunately had very little snow to play in so they were always helping out with bookings for other activities and Jan even helped us with our "My Kitchen Rules" challenge - go the girls!

Great value for money accommodation in Queenstown! The apartment we stayed out was nice and comfy, clean and tidy with up to date appliances. We had everything we needed.

Even with the free parking for guests with such a close walk to town, made it so easy to leave the car and have a night in the town without worrying about transport.

The owners were very nice people. Very helpful and always keen to help if you need it.

Would definitely recommend and stay at again.
