The apartment was a good size and the kitchen had everything we needed. Plenty of room for our friends to pop over for drinks and dinner. We were in Queenstown in winter and the rooms were lovely and warm, with a real flame gas fire to add heat and atmosphere when required. Only a short distance into town , but...

Dear Dax68 Thank you for sharing your feedback with your fellow TripAdvisor reviewers. Yes the views are amazing. The Apartments are noise insulated with double glazed glass as per the normal building standards for accommodation buildings including Hotels.

We stayed in room 223 and the views of the Remarkables were fantastic. The walk into town was only 5 minutes and was the perfect distance to walk off the great Queenstown food.

My husband and I stayed at the Pounamu for four nights during our time in Queenstown and we couldn't fault it! The view of the mountains from our room was incredible! Even though it is so close to the main road we didn't notice any traffic noise from inside. The wooden blinds in the bedroom were perfect for blocking out...

We wanted somewhere close to town, but with great views and amenities. This fitted the bill! Beautifully designed living space, underfloor heating, fireplace and floor-to-ceiling glass windows made it ideal. THE most comfortable bed to boot! Highly recommended.
