Stayed 2 nights after reading the reviews on trip advisor. Unfortunately, our experience was not like most reviews we read. Our shower had a urine odor with trickling water, beds are old with sinking mattresses that make you itch for a month (bed bugs), if you dial 800 numbers from the room they charge you a dollar per minute, breakfast is stale cereal for a hefty price, the managers are an old demented couple that smile all the time but nickle & dime you for everything you got. If can stay somewhere else please do. The only positive is if you get a room facing the lake (nice views)

Dear Guest
Tha you for taking the time to log a review after staying with us recently. We are sorry that you where disappointed with some aspects of the motel. With regards to your comment on the beds we have since requested feedback from the next two guest we had booked "your" room and both where happy - with no sign of bed bugs anywhere.
We fail to see how you can comment on our breakfast when you didn't experience it. The comment about the Management are a personal attack, and are not warranted or constructive. Age is not reflective of capability.

I stayed here for 3 nights in a Lakeview Room. The view from our balcony of Lake Wakatipu was stunning. Especially during sunrise and sunset.

The hosts were really friendly and helpful. They organized tours for all the different types of things we wanted to do in Queenstown and suggested some others which were also great.

We never had any of our meals here so I cant comment about the food. It is located quite close to the city center which has a lot of fabulous restaurants.

The room however was not that great. It had a bit of a run-down feel. The bed wasn't very comfortable either.

If you would like a reasonably priced place close to the city center, then I guess the place is ok. But you could find a more comfortable place to stay in Queenstown for sure.

Make sure you book a lake facing room for the views - it's really worth it.

Conveniently located only a few minutes walk from the town centre and with car parking on site - ticks all the boxes.

Rooms are comfortable and are reasonably priced. It's a motel so expect motel standards but with so much to do in and around Queenstown we were out and about all the time so luxury would have been wasted on us.

The owners are personally involved in running Earnslaw Lodge and are really helpful.

Two nights here and an ideal base for our trip to Milford Sound and excursions locally. Just about the right distance from town and with a lake view stunning. Any trips book through the hosts they get you a good price and were full of useful information. Rooms were comfortable and breakfast worth the expense. All in all good value for money

Room Tip: Make sure you are away from the road it does get busy

Earnslaw Lodge has fantastic views over Lake Wakatipu at the mouth of the Frankton arm. The rooms are spacious but beginning to need a bit of upgrading. It is a convenient 10 minute walk into town and all the facilities. You can park your car. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. We would suggest making your own breakfast rather than eating the in house continental breakfast.

Room Tip: Definitely choose a lakeside room
