We spent 8 nights here in June with family. The delightful Amy & Ann warmly welcomed us at check in & surprised us with an upgrade to a penthouse suite. Fabulous views..warm, spacious and clean and a kitchen with everything you need to cook up family meals. Only a short walk into town for any supplies and down to the lake. Queenstown is a beautiful place to visit and the Glebe would have to be the best place to stay, we would definitely stay here again. Thanks ladies! Your customer service is what hospitality is all about!

Hi Julie and Simon

Fantastic review thank you so much from all of us. You were lucky we had a perfect gap for a wee upgrade. This is not always possible but sometime in the quieter periods it can happen. I am also please your found everything you needed in the kitchen very important you found the apartment clean.

We here at The Glebe love meeting people and helping arrange the day to day activities and give advise. I am pleased you found our customer service level high.

Please come back again soon.

Kind regards

Anne

We had a fantastic stay at The Glebe. The view from our apartment was breath-takingly beautiful and we were within walking distance from so many attractions. The staff were very friendly and made us feel right at home. The apartment was spacious and very comfortable. We have 2 small children who enjoyed Skye the dog and there was even a toy box. We will definitely recomment The Glebe to all our family and friends and we hope to return soon!

we have just returned from a trip to NZ and had the pleasure of staying @ the glebe for 11 nights. we only booked few month ago and as such could not get a 3 bed for the whole stay - so we moved to a penthouse for the last 2 nights. The apartments themselves are in a great location just at the bottom of the hill as you drive into town from the airport - within a 5 minute stroll to the lake and even less to the Mall. we did not hire a car and used the ski bus to get to the slopes an back on the days we skied - this was also only a 5 minute walk to the rental store and then on their doorstep to the bus. we still cant understand why people were paying a fortune to hire a car that then sits up the mountain all day.....
traveliing as a family of four, the 3 bed apartment was more than adequate - each kid had their own room and we had an ensuite whilst they shared a bathroom. we were in a courtyard apartment - 305. the good thing with that is there was no road noise whatsover - and just across the courtyard from reception where the kids could help themselves to DVDs or games. The only gripe we had with this apartment is that there was no bath in either bathroom - most hotels have a bath and as this was so much larger than a hotel room we had hoped there would be a bath to soak in after a day in the cold. the other bizarre thing was that there are no windows in the bedrooms - just one in the lounge and a patio door. this made the bedrooms dark (great for sleeping!) but also very stuffy - and that was with overnight temps of -10. we then moved for the last 2 nights to The Cecil Peak suite - 601. this was awesome - it had a fireplace in the lounge, heaps of windows everywhere, a spa bath and fantastic 180 degree views of the lake, the town and the mountains. it was still very peaceful. Both had fully equipped kitchens and laundry facilities - very useful when wearing so many layers daily.
Amy on reception is an absolute angel - she made us so welcome during our stay with nothing ever too much trouble. There was another lady whom we met a few times too who was just as helpful and pleasant - the staff are gorgeous and make you feel like family. we would definetely return to stay at the Glebe but likley to request 601 again as we all slept much better in better ventilated rooms - even though the kids had to share!! we had been indecisive between the Novotel, Peppers and the Glebe - we definetely made the right choice - even though slightly dearer than the other two - the rooms are bigger than the Novotel and the location so much better than Peppers.

Room Tip: courtyard rooms have no road noise

Thank you from all of us for taking the time to write such a detailed review. We are so lucky having the best location for apartments. I find people with cars will often return them or just hire a car for a couple of days to see Arrowtown and Glenochy. The activity providers are very organized with regards to pick up and dropping off.

In NZ when the Glebe was built you could build a bedroom with a fan in the ceiling for ventilation and glass in the door for some light. We do have additional fans if people are finding the room stuffy. A lot of guests prefer this type of room as it is very dark and quiet. When the owners purchased their apartments around 13 years ago they had the choice of showers or baths and the owner of this particular one picked showers. Some of the owners have added a bath so this can be requested.

The Cecil Peak Penthouse I agree is awesome and pleased you want to come back and stay in it again.

We all agree with you Amy is an angel. I loved reading that you found all the staff gorgeous and you were made to feel like family.

Looking forward to hosting you again soon.

Kind regards

This is our second visit to these large well appointed apartments. All staff are very friendly and helpful, apartments very spacious, well appointed and both of the apartments which we've stayed at have enjoyed great views of the lake. There may be more luxurious apartments but for location, size and value we think these are unbeatable.
I could have done with a better pillow but to be honest I kept forgetting to ask for a firmer one so have to take full responsibility for that one.
Would absolutely recommend.

This accommodation was perfect for our family of five. It was sparkling clean and had full kitchen and laundry facilities. We could walk everywhere easily in central Queenstown. We got this accommodation through a voucher so am not sure how value compares to others. They also had a toy room and DVD collection. Awesome stay.

Cannot think of a better place to stay in Queenstown. There are more luxurious places to be found, but they are usually a little out of town. The Glebe is so central it always wins our vote - only a 5 minute walk to any bar, restaurant or shop in Queenstown. The rooms are clean and tidy, but don't have any views to speak of. Another great feature is that you can save money by not having the rooms serviced every day. If you don't mind making your own bed in the morning, and using the same towel for a couple of days, you get quite a saving on the room rate. These apartments book up quickly in the winter season, so it pays to book well ahead.

Thank you for the fantastic review. I am so pleased you gave us the winning vote for location. We have found over the years that daily servicing is not an issue with most guests. Having the choice has proved very popular.

On our arrival we were greeted by a very lovely staff member. (There is many of them.) She explained the unit location etc. she came across like we were VIPs staying at The Glebe. It is a very lovely welcome. The unit was more than we expected after staying in many units in other holiday destinations. With young children I would highly recommend having separate rooms and a well equiped kitchen and a laundry when traveling. This is what The Glebe offers. The rooms are quite. The floors are heated and there is excellent heating throughout the unit. There is a supermarket not to far from here so getting a few supplies was great. These apartments are very close to the fantastic restaurants and great shops. Baby sitting can be organised, and by the sounds of it...the kids would be spoilt. To the divine staff and the beautiful 3 little watch dogs we thank you from the bottoms of our very sore feet (ski feet ) for a magical stay. We will be highly recommending The Glebe to many of our family friends and clients. We will be back. ......if you book this you will NOT be disappointed.
