A friendly and helpful greeting at reception, and then we were shown to our warm, inviting one bedroom apartment, with an explanation of the amenities. I cannot think of anything that we would have liked that hadn’t already been thought of, and done so very tastefully.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time there (5 nights), it was homely, well appointed, the daily service exceptional, and we thought the rate was very reasonable too.
Our stay was during October, so the cooler weather meant that not being able to have a window open during the night was no issue . . . am not sure that it would have been as comfortable in warmer weather? but it was not a problem for us at all. We occasionally had the sliding door partially open, which was perfectly adequate during waking hours. The rare time other guests strolled in the vicinity, did not worry us at all, but could be an issue for those that desire the upmost in privacy. Also, if stairs are a problem, the lowest floor (closest to the lake) is not for you, but we loved being there and furthest away from the road.
Villa del Lago has some great reviews and comments on TripAdvisor, which is why we chose it . . . along with that we wanted to be central to the local golf courses but in a quieter part of Queenstown, but with a view. It worked perfectly for us, and will stay again when next in the area.
