Apartment was well furnished, clean and warm. It was quiet, too, even though it was located right in downtown. It was good to be able to walk on flat to town centre since I noticed how hilly Queenstown is. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Great place to stay!

Needs update, mould on windows, some windows jammed, very unpleasant musty smell in rooms, no electric blanket. Price should be lower for this budget venue. Location is a positive with easy walk on flat to central town area and gardens.

this place is the perfect place to stay in Queenstown. not only centrally located, the apartment is great. It's clean and tidy, and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
We will definitely stay here again when we're back in Queenstown.

After walking the Routeburn Track it was great to check-in here. Nice 2 BR family unit, clean & warm. Only a few minutes stroll to the town centre. Staff were friendly and helpful. Well furnished apartment, nice and quiet.

Location couldn't be better. Down a short path and you come out right beside the Novotel in the centre of Queenstown. We chose St James due to the fact that there was four of us travelling (2 adults and 2 kids) and wanted two bedrooms at a reasonable price. Unit had a king size bed in one room and two singles in the other. Two bathrooms and a full kitchen. The unit was reasonably modern (although had a projection TV!) and was clean and tidy. Car parking was included. One thing we noticed was that the hallways were a bit smelly (not the rooms). Also as per other reviews, was surprised they expected payment upfront - most unusual. Would stay again however based on room quality and location.

Room Tip: Get on second floor for less foot traffic and good views

Stayed at the St James appts for 1 night on our way to Te Anu. Reasonable price, central location, appartment clean but a little dated. We booked a king size room which had plenty of space and a very large bathroom. Wifi was only free for the first 250mb, after this you have to pay. Ok for a 1 night stay, but wouldn't want to stay any longer. Whilst in Queenstown we took a ride up the Gondola and on the luge - both great fun and would definately recommend!

my partner and I had a long weekend away to avoid the hussle and bussle of the city. we stayed at ST JAMES for the last 4 days, we found the service excellent and found the price well worth the visit. This is our 2nd time to queenstown and we found that this is much better to stay than the last place that we stayed. The only thing we found is there was no in house food service but it was easily accommodated by short 5 minute walk to town. The staff were excellent and provided a lot of great information of activities to do and Andy the manager, even booked our activities for us
