“Super spacy and perfect for 2 couples!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

The appartements have a two floor setup with downstairs bathroom and 2 bedrooms. Upstairs big big comfy living area and fully equipped kitchen.
We had a nice BBQ with the BBQ that is standard at every balcony.
Close walk down to city center and nice views over lake and Queenstown.
Very nice hosts that tried everything to allow us prolongate our stay.

Love, love, love Turner Heights! Feels like a home away from home. We stayed at apt 10. The bedrooms were on the basement and the living+dining at the ground floor. You have to watch young children all the time with the stairs. It has beautiful mountain & lake view, but sadly a bit blocked by the property in front of us. The unit is clean, kitchen with provided utensils, homey interior though not modern nor old. OK for us. The location is 5min walk to Shotover st. (city centre). Walking home a bit steep but nothing you can't handle. Very suitable for a family holiday.

So i read all the reviews about these apartments before I booked and saw all about the hill but never expected it to be as big as it was, ( guess it was good for all the delicious food we ate there) the location was amazing, I don't think you could get much better, to be able to walk into town every day was great. I work in apartments but still found these rooms very nice and spacious, Staff were extremely nice and helpful with everything. I will definalty choose this place again if i get a chance to go back. Only thing is it is self contained but I guess that's good if you like your space :-)

Thank you for your kind comments. It seems everyone has a varying opinion on the steepness of Turner St. up to Turner Heights Townhouses. In all fairness it is one short block up, you pass by a motel at the bottom of the street then 3 houses and you are here, takes all of a couple of minutes up. Being up a hill is why we have such great views!

We stayed here for a few days in Nov 2012. We stayed in a 2 bedroom townhouse (number 3). The townhouse we stayed in was big and had 3 levels. The middle level had two bedrooms and a bathroom and the top level had the living/dining area, kitchen and a sofa bed. The townhouses have a very homely feel and the most amazing view. They did have remnants of 70s decor though. The Pros - the view, kitchen, washing machine/dryer, sleeps 6, close to town, access to cleans towels and bedding as required. Cons - no dishwasher (but you are required to wash dishes used prior to checking out), no complimentary wi fi (it could be purchased $10 for 2 hours), there is a steep walk up street to get to townhouses (we got used to it), no complimentary toiletries. I would definitely stay here again and the staff were lovely and allowed us to leave our luggage there after we checked out so that we could walk into town before our shuttle arrived.

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom townhouses had amazing views but I don't think the 1 bedroom ones did.

Thank you for your kind comments. We now can provide a 24 hour complimentary Wifi connection to all our guests on request and are working toward full free Wifi for the duration of a guests stay. Toileties/coffee and tea are also free on request.
All of our 1 bedroom apartments have fantastic views, we are assumming the reviewer is referring to our 2 bedroom spa units, which all have varying degrees of view.

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.
