“Fantastic!!”
Reviewed January 1, 2007

Absolutely perfect! The best place to stay in Queenstown.

Fantastic view, fantastic rooms, fantastic spa baths, fantastic breakfast and most of all fantastic hosts!

The rooms are divine. All the rooms have impressive views. The sitting room for all to use has great views of the lake, mountains, and Queenstown. The breakfast is outstanding.

The owners go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. They are very knowledgeable of sites, dining and tourist activities in Queenstown.

We enjoyed our stay immensely!!

We stayed at a B and B called Balmoral,
Where the gardens were green and really floral.
Our hosts were Cis and Les Walker,
We're not sure who was the greater talker?
But with the hosts and views we had no quarrel.

We went to New Zealand to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We had an outstanding experience in all respects and plan to go back to New Zealand, to Queenstown and to Balmoral Lodge. We feel privileged that it is only a three hour plane ride from home in Sydney.
Well done Cis and Les and well done Queenstown NZ.
