We had booked 3 nights at Caples via the internet. Upon arrival, we were somewhat uneasy at the building's appearance as it seemed a little on the tired side. After receiving the room key from the friendly and helpful manager, we were completely surprised to find that our room was quite spacious and had a fantastic view of the town lakefront - we could see the SS Earnshaw coming and going - as well as a view of the chair lift. There was a bench seat on the verandah/landing where one could enjoy these views as well. The room was very clean and the kitchenette was well equipped. Stanley Street is very busy during the day but traffic reduced significantly at night and there were no noise issues.
The walk downhill into town took only a few minutes; rather than worry about the uphill walk on return, we just thought of it as exercise. Queenstown is full of restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes and budgets, however we cooked own own meal in the unit each night.
Unlike many motels, the laundry facilities are free for guests although it may take a bit of time to complete washing & drying as the machines are also used by staff for the accommodation linen.
There is under cover parking on the premises and our car remained there for the duration of our stay as we walked everywhere. Highly recommend visiting the botanical gardens - just beautiful.
Overall a little gem of a place and one in which which we would definitely stay again if we are lucky enough to return to NZ.
