        • Family with children

          good accomodation for family.we were happy except 1 room was very small.

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          Really enjoyed cleanliness of the room. Appreciated that everything was new... Would improve by having a dvd player. Apart from that everything was fine and loved that we could leave our bags in the office for the day as we had a late flight

          Would benefit from a dvd player. Also instruction stays to check in next working day. We stayed over the weekend. Although keys were left for us we were a bit confused as wether we needed to check in... Just some clearer instructions would b great

        • Family with children
          5.0

          Poor value for money. Heating in the main bedroom was insufficient. No electric blankets. Dishwasher stank. Dirty oven rack in one of the cupboards. No curtains on window in kitchen so people in the street could see straight into the lounge. Didnt realise the apartment was on 2 levels. I guess for the price we just had higher expectations.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          The apartment was very spacious, modern, warm and had a fantastic view of the Remarkables. It is reasonably close to town in a quiet area.

        • Older travelers

          Conveniently located, excellent facilities, friendly and helpful manager, the view, quiet.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          The apartment was close to the town centre (within walking distance). It was well appointed and modern with a view over the lake.

          That the only heating in the living area was a gas fire. After being out all day it took a while for the room to warm up and then it was difficult to regulate the temperature of the room. The bed we slept in was hollow in the middle and created roll together which was rather uncomfortable. The beside units in the bedroom did not fit in the room. One reduced the walkway into the room considerably and the other blocked the wardrobe door and we had to move it during our stay so we could use the wardrobe. Also the cleaning staff were still cleaning our appartment when we arrived over an hour after the check in time and we had to wait in our car while she finished.

        • Couple
          4.2

          Nothing. But the waiter we met on the first day was good and helped us a lot.

          1) The office (as receiption) was not on duty as its timetable. 2) The washbasin was blocked by hair and plastic rope. I told the office lady in the second morning about this and she promised to solve this problem. But when we was back to the apartment in the evening, nothing changed. 3) Nothing changed means everything including the bed and the bath towels were not changed - during all three days we stayed !

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Was concerned about the stairs, but they didnt cause any trouble. There should however be a note somewhere that there are stairs.Luckily we had a car so the distance to the shopping centre wasnt a problem. For a weekend away, you dont have time to walk to the town.

          This was a really good quality, value for money place to stay in Queenstown.

          It is about half an hour's walk from the centre - but we found it fine for our purposes. it woudl be even better if you had a car.

        • Single
          7.8

          The room was great. The bathroom was excellent and everything was clean and tidy

          Unable to find easily at night. Had a terrible time even with a map as the apartments name was not illuminated. No garaging (first come first served, who knows how many cars were the same apartment) and parks impossible to find in the area. Not complaining as booking made with only a couple of weeks notice.

        • Family with children
          6.4

          Relatively close to town, easy to use, easy to deal with through booking system, quickly helped out with a problem

          Some kitchen equipment poor, no dishwasher powder, dishwash liquid very low.

        • Single
          7.4

          Big apartment with lots of good facilities, e.g. washer and dryer, iron, full kitchen, terrace, 2 bedrooms, heated bathroom floor, big TV etc

        • Family with children
          6.6

          View, space, facilities, location, off street parking, balcony, layout,

          Pillows - cheap, synthetic, uncomfortable. Sofa was too small for 4 people and was cheap syntheic leather that was hot and uncomfortable.
