These are fairly new and we stayed in the 2 bedroom 'townhouse' which is a little down the street from the apartments. Great service at the reception desk when we arrived. Crisp, neat and clean everywhere you look.
I loved this place. The 2 bedroom townhouse is really modern with luxury facilities and furnishings. The gourmet kitchen was fantastic and we bought our own food from the supermarket and made out own breakfast each day and sometimes dinner. Rooms are cozy and the main bedroom has it's own flat screen tv. Bathroom is huge and has a heater for winter.
The front verandah overlooks the mountains and the gas fire in the lounge was great for drying our ski jackets at night. The townhouses are not serviced so you need to keep them clean yourself. You can ask for more towels etc at anytime though. it's like having your own home really. I liked the privacy. The washing machine and dryer were great so we always had clean, dry clothes for the whole 7 days we stayed.
They have their own lock-up garage, ski drying & storage room. There is however, no phone or SKY TV. I didn't really care to be honest!!! You can hire free DVDs from reception.
We walked into Wanaka for dinner most nights. Took about 3 minutes to do so. Everything is nearby. I like Wanaka because it is closer to the best ski-fields and is less crowded but still maintains a boutique atmosphere.
The only complaint i had about the townhouse was that we found it a little difficult to get out 4wd in and out of the garage, as it faced the driveway wall. We also would have liked some outdoor furniture (like the townhouse next to us) so we could sit outside. We had none on our patio.
The apartments looked nice too..they were in the main complex and you can see them on the website. The website is not very well layed out though. Go right to to bottom of the page to see pics of rooms etc.
Otheriwise...a lovely place. Clean, modern, cheery and good value!!! Try Wanaka instead of QT for your next ski trip!! Much closer to Cardrona and Treble Cone, which are the best ski fields.
