Reviewed November 23, 2010

My husband and I stayed checked into a one-bedroom apartment on the recommendations of i-SITE. We were so comfortable in our unit that we extended our stay from 2 nights to 4 nights. The unit was very well equipped with everything we needed and then some. It also came with a washing machine/dryer which was exactly what we needed after almost a week on the road.

Location is good, less than 5 minutes walk on a flat road into the town center. We also had a good view of the mountains and gondolas from the balcony. There was a bit of noise from the traffic but as the bedroom was at the back, it didn't bother us at all.

The apartment was also very clean. Couldn't find a single dirty spot. We noticed that after the occupants check out, the management would leave all the doors open to air the unit thoroughly, so you won't find any lingering smells from the previous occupants.

Housekeeping was not included but they did change the towels and empty the bins everyday. When we ran out of toiletries and coffee on our last day, we asked one of the managers, Wayne, and he came back with a whole armful and asked if it was enough, LOL. Such generosity.

Lastly, we want to thank the managers, Wayne and Jen, for making our stay there so enjoyable. They were extremely nice and helpful and seemed genuinely concerned that we should have a good time in Queenstown.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if we returned to Queenstown.

Booked apartment for 2 nights through the Queenstown i-Site, as they were offering a good deal. On arrival, the manager was very friendly and helpful, and gave a full run-down on how to operate the washer/dryer which was much appreciated. Great views down across the main part of the town and of the lake, gondola etc. Only 5 minutes walk to supermarket & 5 minutes the other way into town. Unit was lovely and clean and although on a main road, as the bedroom is situated at the back, the traffic noise was reduced. Lovely place to stay, would love to stay there another time!

Self Contained Apartment which overlooked the Gondola and Partial lake views Plenty of Mountains though. 5 min walk to central shops. Bus Stop out the front to take you to Coronet Peak. Wayne and Jan Were great nothing was a problem when we were sorting out a few travel problems. The rooms were comfortable and heating worked well. Kitchen was modern and well equipped. 2 min each way to a supermarket. Bed was good although we normally sleep in a water bed so we always struggle in this department. Nice Balcony to sit out on in the warmer weather. We would go back here no problem.

Stayed here for a week skiing in August 10' and it was brilliant. The people were lovely and very hospitable, the rooms were clean and had everything we needed for the week including washer/dryer, dishwasher and full kitchen facilities. It's walking distance from town so this is great value for money for those who want to save the $$$ but still want to stay somewhere nice. Definately would stay again!!

The owners of these apartments are very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area.
Great location only a short walk to town and the snow centre to catch buses to Coronet Peak and the Remarkables.

The downside to these rooms are the the living area is really small, one room with kitchen facilities on one wall and a sofa, one chair and a coffee table. With 3 young children we wanted to be able to eat in the apartment most nights, however this was difficult as we really had to sit on the floor around the coffee table. Very messy. There was an outdoor table and chairs on the balcony but it was freezing so not really an option.

Well presented, modern apartments with all the facilities needed to make you comfortable. Opposite the Gondola and 3 mins from the heart of town, makes this the best, most comfortable, value for money accommodation we could find. Highly recommended!!

Whistler is quite possibly the best value for money you can find in Queenstown. The apartments are a decent size, with a sizeable deck outside, yes, the road is busy, but the bedrooms are generally on the side of the building away from the road and the traffic is virtually nonexistent from around 7pm onwards anyways.

We stayed for more than a month (I was there on business), and can't recommend it enough, excellent value for money if you're staying a while (about the only thing that'll beat Whistler on price are Hostels with a substantial drop in quality and comforts). These are apartments after all, with everything you could want from an apartment. Practically central, close to Supermarket, lots of parking space, clean, with fantastic management.

During our stay, I saw several rooms, and while they are in the process of renovating the rooms, some of them could've used a new lick of paint etc, but they are fixing the rooms up and have probably done all of them up already by now. There is no competition anywhere central in Queenstown at anything even remotely resembling the price bracket.
