I stayed here with my daughter for 6 nights. The place is midway between the airport and Queenstown on the main road...they say a 30 min walk into town but really only 10-15. the walk along the lake into town is really nice. The luxery 2 bedroom apartment is great. both bedrooms with comfy beds and ensuites, full kitchen, dining room, great view of the lake, fireplace, laundry..really exceptional. They have not spared any expense on the apartments. They are comfy, warm and well equipped. My problem is that the services are virtually non existent. Apparently these are self-catering, alhtough I was not aware of this when I booked and was surprised given the cost, so they change the towels every day and make up the beds but that's it! This might be ok for a night or two but for 6 days? I asked for some cleanser to clean the bathtub but there was none to be had. I was a little miffed to read in the guest services booklet that salt and pepper sachets could be purchased from reception. Instead I got some from the ski hill cafe. Certainly these should have been provided as well as some ground cofee instead of only instant and some other basics like sugar. The gym equipment was broken and I complained about this and got a small refund but a gym was one of the main reasons I booked this place. Also, depending on your room and which block you are in, you might have to go outside to get to the gym. not a great thing in queenstown in the winter. WiFi came at a steep cost even if you were willing to use the computers in the reception area. There are a lot of hotels, apartments etc in Queenstwon and so I think that if one wants to do well, they need to have the service to match the lovely apartments.
