Balmoral Lodge
Ranked #19 of 44 Queenstown B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We loved our stay at the Balmoral Lodge. We were lucky enough to have the downstairs two bedroom apartment. The views are incredible. The apartment was wonderfully equipped, all beds comfortable, the laundry is great (and detergent is included!) and there is a pool table off the living room. Leslie was a wonderful host. Queenstown is such a fabulous destination and this was a great place to experience it from. We would definitely stay there again.

We had an amazing experience staying with Les and Cis at the Balmoral lodge, the views were spectacular, superb hospitality, we stayed in a superior super king suite with a spa bath, the beds were extremely warm and comfortable, executive class. We had bacon and eggs for breakfast while chatting with the hosts and look forward to a return trip. Handy central location, short walk to town.

I would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone wanting to come to Queenstown. The photos are true and correct and the scenery is spectacular. Les and Cis are fabulous, welcoming and very professional - we are very thankful for their expertise, local knowledge, endless help and friendly personalities. If you are not sure what to book, look no further. We were a group of two couples and have been more than impressed. We will be back.......one day.....

Room Tip: Any is fine!

Had an amazing stay. Les and Sis were very friendly with a great knowledge of the area. they were very helpful, even giving us a lift into town first thing in the morning, giving us an opportunity to eat their great breakfast before the day began.
With breathtaking views and an amazing spa bath (perfect after a day of activities) make this a very comfortable home away from home.

Room Tip: From what I could see all the rooms were great.

Went on a skiing holiday and stayed in this lovely bed and breakfast. The room was beautiful and the hosts Cis and Les were great. They were very helpful, helped us book our bungy jumps and other trips. Breakfast was great and the views are amazing.

Would definitely recommend Balmoral Lodge to anyone visiting Queenstown. Fantastic.

Thoroughly enjoyed the quiet location - I stayed 5 nights and never heard a drum beat. Breakfasts were an absolute treat, and nothing was too much trouble, can't wait to go back. Les and Sis were a treasure trove of cultural facts, and I hope Les finally finishes that jigsaw before he sends himself mad
