“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

We saw this accommodation and it's great reviews on trip advisor and booked 7 nights. We were amazed at how good the accommodation was. We had a standard non-lake facing room. It was equipped with a large tv and the bathroom had a heated towel rack. The room was spacious and beautifully serviced every day. I would recommend the Earnslaw Lodge and the service the owners Lynley and Phil provide.

Thanks for taking the time to review us, good to know that you booked because of the reviews.
The non lake facing rooms are a good size, and if your not bothered about a view.
Would love to see you again perhaps next year.

Amazing views, excellent facilities & really friendly staff. You can't go wrong with this property. We really enjoyed our stay & Lynley our host was very welcoming & accommodating from the time we booked to the time we checked out. Queenstown is an expensive place to stay but this property was very reasonable in comparison. Would definitely stay again.

We had been recommended to stay here by the owner of an inn on the north island, and she told us to make sure to ask for a room with a view of the lake. We got the last one, and were treated with a great view over the lake and the mountains when we woke up the next morning. We didn't stay very long -- checked in around 7 or 8 and were out by 9 the next morning -- but all of the staff we dealt with were very friendly and happy to answer any questions about town.

Fantastic facilities at the lodge and we had a awesome view of the lake. The room was warm, clean and very comfortable with lots of room. Bed was most comfortable and clean. Our hosts were great and made us feel most welcome. Even had a beer or two at the lodge bar with the owner. The price for our stay was very competitive and well priced. I have no hesitation in recommending this Lodge as a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Lake views are great!!

Was great to stay here, we had the two bedroom apartment. On arrival, the lady at reception was so friendly and helpful. Short walk into town, beautiful views of the lake and snow capped mountains. Great facilities within the room and such comfortable beds! Had a few drinks at the little bar and played a great game of Pictionary (which we found at the motel, wonderful!). Everyone was so friendly and willing to help. Really enjoyed our time in Queenstown and at Earnslaw Lodge and would definitely go back. You could tell that the operators of the motel got a real joy and satisfaction out of helping their guests and of seeing their guests' enjoyment

Room Tip: The two bedroom apartment room is great- has two seperate bathrooms for each room. One of the beds i...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on tripadvisor regarding your stay at the lodge. The 2 bedroom 2 bathroom is a good big room to stay in with friends. The board games have proved a hit with the guests.
The parking for this unit at the door is a hit as there is no carting bags up the stairs.
Look forward to hosting you next time in Queenstown and thanks for choosing to stay.

We had the studio room with lake view, room was basic with coffee/tea facility. There's also a balcony so we can enjoy a cup of hot drink facing the lake. Just a short walk to the city, very convenient.

Room Tip: Ask for lake view rooms
