“Fantastic service, clean and comfortable apartment, very close to town centre!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

I highly recommend The Glebe. The service is excellent, staff are so friendly, professional and very helpful. I emailed The Glebe with queries about Queenstown (tours, questions about the apartment, etc) and Helen responded promptly with helpful tips/suggestions. Amy greeted us on our arrival and she was so friendly, accommodating and wonderful, she made us feel at home! We got upgraded to a bigger apartment which made our holiday even more memorable. There's great heating, the beds are very comfortable, the apartment was spacious and clean with all the amenities, car park is provided and best of all, we had a view of the lake! Not forgetting Skye and Ginni, The Glebe's onsite dogs, who were just adorable! I highly recommend this place and I will definitely go back again!

Hello Jean

Thank you from all of us for taking the time to write a lovely review. Reading how you felt about the staff and Amy makes me very proud to manage The Glebe. Our dogs are pretty cute and they certainly know it.

We are looking forward to seeing you back here soon.

Kind regards

The Glebe was great for a family ski holiday - close to town and plenty of space. Started well with an easy online reservation and then we were the happy recipient of an upgrade into a 3-bedroom apartment. It was a bit dark (this could be the same of most of the ground floor courtyard facing apartments) but given we were out all day on the mountain it wasn't a big issue - we certainly had more room than we needed. We also struggled with the fan / heating of the room but finally mastered it once we paid attention to the instructions. Staff were super-friendly from the outset and were only too happy to sort out details like child seats in cars (Tots-on-tour) and (trained / qualified) babysitters. Apartments were well kitted out for self-catering but the location made for any easy stroll to all the restaurants, etc. Would happily stay there again.

The Glebe was amazing, from the time we made our booking (at a discounted rate because some of our party had travelled there 2 years prior). The reception team could not do enough to accommodate us. One of the team Andie, runs a babysitting agency and she has a team of 5 babysitters who were able to accommodate all of our requests. Little known is that there is a toy cupboard at the hotel which is full of amazing stuff for kids - we have a 3 year old girl and a 6 month old boy. No request was too hard for them, they even lent our friend their car to get to the hospital in invercargill. What an amazing place and an amazing team of staff. Lovely and clean and great views. Its a nice short walk to town and the only downside for me was the bed was a little soft for my liking. :o)

Brought the kids for winter ski holiday and glad that we picked this 2 rooms apartment for a week stay. Very convenient as it's close to town and within walking distance without driving the car. Great heating system in the apartment, but it may be too warm at times which we turned down the heating temperature and opened the windows for the cool air to come in. Great amenities in the apartment, as salt and pepper, and washing powder etc are all provided for. Had stayed in many serviced apartments elsewhere, Glebe is one which is most thoughtful for travelers. Clean towels were replenished on daily basis, and our apartments was cleaned and serviced daily.

My 6 year old was running high fever on 3rd day during our stay, and queenstown medical centre was within close proximity (2 roads away) and pharmacies are opened till late hours. The furnitures in the apartment may be a bit dated as pointed out by some reviewers, but the thoughtfulness and well equipped apartment had made our stay very comfortable especially when you have a sick child. Had a few home cooked meals at night as the kitchen is fully equipped with rice cooker as well as slow cooker which we could cook rice and porridge for my little one.

Would definitely come back again. Highly recommend this place especially for family groups.

The Glebe has been the perfect holiday destination for us for nearly 6 years in a row now for our winter ski and snowboarding holiday to Queenstown.

The apartments are very very spacious and we fit a family of 3 couples and 4 kids into one of the four bedroom apartments easily, all of which are very well appointed. The apartments are well decked out with full kitchens and large living areas, games and books, under floor heating and excellent views.

The location is also perfect right at the entrance to the main part of town which is ideal for us to walk in and around town to restauarnts and shops etc. Parking is also easy and secure under the building and they have drying rooms for ski and snowboard gear along with lockers as well.

Each time we visit we are greeted like friends from the very friendly staff who are more than willing to help with anything including restaurant recommendations and snow forecasts!

We have already booked again for next year and can't wait to go back again! Could not recommend highly enough.

If you want large apartments close to the city centre (Literally 200m walk), then it is pretty hard to go past the Glebe. This is the second time I have stayed here, both times with family, and we have loved it both times. It is so convenient to get everywhere that you need to go. Large spacious apartments, and although the décor is a little dated, you have absolutely everything that you could need. Our kitchen was supplied with a rice cooker, slow cooker, sandwich press, multiple pots and pans and baking dishes, which makes travelling as a family much easier (and cheaper as you don't have to spend so much eating out). If you don't want to be disappointed, be realistic - this is not a 5 star resort/hotel such as Azur, but for Value for Money it does not get much better than this. We would all definitely stay at Glebe Apartments again.

The 4 bed apartment at the Glebe was pretty good for a group of 10, with an enormous lounge area that kids could literally run around. Slightly dated decor but that really didnt matter. Great views, nice garden out front, privacy if you needed it. The walk to the apartment from the town centre was only 200m but the last part up a very steep hill, so older family struggled. We would happily stay here again for a large group holiday. The floor in the lounge kitchen dining area was heated, and while great made the apartment very warm all of the time. I am not sure if you could have it turned down - there was no switch to be seen. Amenities were all working and clean. The management were very nice, cleaners each day and the coffee tea etc always topped up. Overall a great and comfortable stay for a large family group.

Room Tip: Choose an outside room you can walk straight into, the lifts are through the carparks and its a bit...
