Enjoyed our stay, the owner was lovely and very helpful. Rooms with lake views were amazing but we had a no room view but still nice size and could see the mountains.Bus stop right outside and it was a good walk into Queenstown but doable.

Excellent hospitality and very helpful friendly people. Rooms clean and warm WITHOUT that distinct smell of damp I have gotten in some NZ hotels. Superb view. Very accessible to town centre. People up to date with everything local.

Thank you so much for a fabulous stay at your beautiful hotel, it really made our holiday! The staff were super friendly and helpful, what they don't know about the area is not worth knowing, great advice, and their company at the bar was very welcomed! :) The rooms were very clean and tidy with everything you need provided! Car parking was great you can just walk to town so no parking issues!! These guys definatly go the extra mile, Thanks again!! :)

We stayed at the Earnslaw for our honeymoon. Accommodation was excellent and private. We had a lake facing kitchen studio which had an amazing view. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the stay so much. Would recommend to anyone!!

Room Tip: Pay a little extra and get a lake facing room

The single beds are terrible. The mattress used most definitely have seen better days. I could feel the springs pressing against my body and i sunk right down to the divan. It was really bad for my back. The bathroom soap holder was broken and i was told the replacement would arrive from Australia in 6 weeks time. They did not have spares so we had to just live with it. So much for a professional "vacant clean" definition. Back of the house and front of the house is not clearly defined so they were working and making noise and causing dust to fly around right infront of my room. Very unprofessional. The door to my room was secured with a simple door lock system and one of the sliding door locks was broken! So much for security? Bad value for money.

I have read your review and would like to answer some of your comments.
The beds 1 king 1 queen and 2 single beds are all from the hospitality range which we have throughout the motel. We have had no other problems with these before.
When Eve rang about the soap dish i did say they had sent the wrong size and new ones where arriving in 6 days. The front of the motel is all signed on Frankton road which is the main road into Queenstown. The area that you mentioned is a carport and yes a placehouse is being built and the noise from the tools is only during the day. The lock that was broken had a screw out so this has been fixed, which could have been done while you where staying had we known.
