I have stayed here the last two years for my ski trip! This is the best accommodation, you feel like you are in a luxury apartment with the views! We stayed in a two bedroom apartment, sleeps 4 normally. This year we had an extra person on the sofa bed, I wouldnt do that again because its not the best sleep for that person (with the springs and thin mattress). The two bedroom apartment has an awesome view & i got some great photos of the sunset right from the window! The apartment is three stories, entry level, bedroom level, and then living & kitchen level. It is warm with the heaters and all the appliances work. This is a fairly small complex so I dont really think you need a spa room. We used the public spa every night, which is tucked away at the end of the townhouses row, and NO-ONE was in it but us! It is tucked away and secluded in the location it is in, so i honestly preferred the room with a view and using this spa than a spa room and no view. Reception is friendly and helpful, WIFI is good. You buy a card with the code from reception, and login to WIFI through the internet website for that card. So only one device logged in at a time, per card. Fine for us, who wants to be on the internet all day when in a beautiful location such as Queenstown! Walk to main street would be 2 minutes. The hill is short and steep, fine for the fit & healthy or those that are trying to be fit and healthy. Probably not the best option for the elderly or injured. We did the hill about three times a day and whilst it was tough, it was great exercise and actually made us feel really good! I really dont have anything bad to say about these townhouses, they were great, and I will definately go back again!

Room Tip: I would choose the apartments with a view. The public spa is so quiet anyway, so we didn't need...

I stayed in a two bedroom spa pool townhouse for two weeks over August-September. The location of the town houses is an easy walk to the center of Queenstown. I'd read on this website that some people had found the walk up to the hill a little bit taxing. But seriously, if you're unable to walk up a fairly small hill, then you really ought to take a good hard look at your fitness levels. The only person I saw who generally struggled with that hill was an obese woman carrying four bags of grocery shopping. The facilities in the townhouse were good, the only thing I could think of that was missing was a dishwasher. Apart from that there was jsut about everything you'd need. I found the staff very accommodating with Rayleen in reception being very friendly and helpful.

All in all, I'd certainly reccomend staying at the Turner Heights Townhouses. I don't think you'll find anything in Queenstown that is this good for this price.

Room Tip: The private spa rooms are better. Not only do you get a spa, but the units are easier to access from...

I don't believe someone could rate this place as terrible.
The views aren't like "everywhere else in Queenstown."
From the three story town house high up in queenstown you feel like you are on top of the world the views are magical and I've stayed at other places in Queenstown with 180 degrees views and they aren't the same. I've stayed here twice now and its like my home away from home.
The staff are always friendly.
The townhouses have a great alpine character to them with cathedral ceilings on the top level lounge room, huge kitchen, and cosy bedrooms.

We stayed for two nights in unit 6a at the Turner Heights Townhouses in late July. The unit was spacious and warm with amazing views over the lake and mountains. The location was extremely close to the centre of town and yes the reviews are correct in saying the hill is very steep! But I think there would be a longer but less vertiginous way to get down when the streets are icy.
One special thing about this place is the spa pool which looks out on the mountains, a great bonus that we weren't expecting.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom townhouse, a few doors down from the reception and laundry. The view was fantastic, although partially obstructed by the front townhouses. Very clean inside with everything available in terms of household appliances, utensils etc. The sofa bed was not comfortable but there was a spare mattress which we used to sleep on the floor. Being the middle level townhouse, we got quite a bit of noise pollution (creaky floors, doors slamming, loud footsteps, toilet flushing etc) from the neighbors & townhouse on top of ours - the walls are not very thick, don't forget your earplugs! Staff were very friendly and helpful! The apartment is not serviced so you need to buy your own groceries ( toilet paper etc), the main town & supermarket is just down the road which makes it a very convenient location! The hill is very steep but great for burning those extra calories!! A bit scary to walk down when the road is icy. Overall we had a lovely stay and will definitely return!

We stayed in a very spacious 2 bed house which had all the amenities you could want. The views were great and the walk to town was short although steep on the return. On a 2 night stay we got all our washing done and had time to find a great fish and chip emporium at the head of the lake.

Just got back from a second stay at the Townhouses. You are welcomed by very helpful, happy and efficient staff. The townhouses are great value as you get a very well equipped kitchen and other facilities and are kept very clean. They are only a few minutes walk down to the town, and have amazing views over the town, mountains and lake. The hill is steep to get up but not that bad and we just stopped every so often to admire the view.
We certainly wouldn't consider staying anywhere else on our next visit as its such great value for its location.
