Reviewed August 27, 2013

We stayed in a 2 bedroomed 2 bathroomed luxury apartment (not the lodge). The position is superb, close to town, restaurants and ski buses. The apartment is modern, nicely furnished and comfortable...BUT...as our bedrooms faced a passage way used by other residents, night after night we were woken up in the early hours of the morning by drunken and noisy residents , returning from partying in town.

We are regular visitors to Queenstown, so we understand that it can be party town and we are fairly tolerant of noise however we have never had an experience like this before.

We had every intention of telling the ladies at reception about this, however they seemed totally disinterested and bored with their jobs that we just let it go.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms that do not have bedrooms facing the passage.

While it is great to hear that you were pleased with the layout and location of our apartments, we are saddened to read that you were disturbed by noise at night. On the rare occasion that there is loud noise at night, guests can call our 24 hour onsite management who will deal with the issue immediately.

As our other reviews indicate, our staff and level of service are often praised and we really do encourage honest feedback from our guests. We are sorry that you did not feel you could talk to our reception staff about your concerns.

Roomy apartments, clean, well fitted out and very comfortable. Make sure you check that you are Blue Peak Apartments, not Blue Peak Lodge Apartments, there is a difference, but they use the same office for booking in. There is a difference in price as well. But the diffence in quality between the 2 lots of property is significant, in our opinion worth paying extra for the Blue Peaks Apartments.

Room Tip: Ask for an apartment with a view, some have no real view

We are a family of 4 (with 2 adult children). We stayed in 2 bedroom apartment that was well appointed and had great heating, which is essential for those cold & frosty July mornings. The location was terrific, so close to town! The view over the lake was lovely too. The staff could not have been more helpful or obliging. We would definitely stay again and would certainly recommend it to family & friends.

Room Tip: Apartments are bordered by 3 roads-Coronation, Sydney & Stanley, suggest asking not to have one...

I recently stayed there for weekend conference with quite a few of us. We had a 3 bedroom apartment and it had everything you could have wanted. Lovely, clean, tidy and very comfortable. Great heating. Only downside - didn't have any electric blankets on the bed and unfortunately all the hot water bottles were loaned out. This is no way a biggie as I'll just take my own next time. Would recommend the apartments but not the motel side of it as a few of our members stayed there and they weren't that impressed that side.

Helpful staff, comfortable and warm and near the attractions. Easy to recommend. We could easily walk to town. If we has wanted to cook meals, the facilities were at hand. Fresh milk was provided for our tea.

We stayed with our two boys for a family holiday. The apartments are beautifully appointed and the location makes it an incredibly easy holiday. We were just a couple of minutes stroll to the waterfront, the shops and the gardens. We had some excellent advice from the reception staff on places for dinner and where to find the swings for the kids. They were extremely helpful!
The apartments had everything we needed, the view from the balcony made it a great place to sit and have a wine and we will definitely stay here next time we visit. Loved it!

We had previously stayed at the Blue Peaks Lodge but this time wanted alittle more space and a view of the lake, as we were travelling with older family members. The staff were welcoming at booking which is at the Lodge location but did not give very good directions to our unit and the parking arrangements. On entering our west facing unit it was stuffy, hot and stunk of cooked meat. From our travels in NZ I was aware that cooking smells in self catering accommodation will attract a cleaning fee so could not understand that in a more upmarket apartment this would happen. The bench tops were grimey too and there was hair in one of the bathrooms on the floor. I opened all the windows and rang the office and requested airfreshner. We told we could " borrow" the air freshner, would have to collect it ourselves and return it! The furniture was superficially comfortable, there were not many cooking pots or microwave containers which was a disappointment as we enjoy cooking while we are travelling. Our welcoming pack of toileteries was a joke!
Queenstown is a great place and provides enjoyment for all and we loved going out on the lake, walking in the gardens and using the gondola in the evening. The units are in a great location in relationship to the town centre but I am sure there are many others likewise to choose from.

We pride ourselves on our high standards of housekeeping and many reviews positively comment on this. We are sorry that, on this occasion, we did not meet your expectations.

Blue Peaks Apartments are fully self contained and therefore we do just provide a starter pack of toiletries for guests. We would also encourage guests to contact reception if they have further needs. We are always happy to provide additional items if required.

We are glad that you enjoyed your time in Queenstown and hope we can welcome you back to Blue Peaks Apartments in the future.
