This is my 3rd time staying here. The best thing about Amber lodge is the location. Everything is in walkable distance. We booked the mountain view room and our room had one double bed, one single bed, table, chairs, kitchen and bathroom. Parking is available closer to your room. Room service cleaned our room every day. They have a panel...

More than anything, Amber Lodge has the perfect location as it is very close to downtown Queenstown where the restaurants, coffee shops, tourism desks are. We were a group of 5 and we fit comfortably that is if you're not too picky where the beds are. Lol. The room where we stayed has 3 single beds in the living room...

We stayed 2 nights in Amber Lodge in a standard studio. The room was big, clean and quiet, and had everything we needed. But we found it not cosy, because it was dark and looked old. We found that the price we payed was too high, in comparison with other motels in New zealand. But Queenstown is an expensive place....

I traveled with 2 friends and we had a great time at Amber Lodge. The view is stunning especially from room 15! While there my friends had Skype interviews and the free wifi worked a treat for them. It's a short (mostly flat) walk into town and to the beach and a (very steep) uphill walk to Queenstown hill.

This is a great value 'middle of the road' property that is close in to the center of Queenstown, and an easy walking distance from everywhere. The units are clean and comfortable, the owners are friendly and helpful, and the nightly rate is fair. Internet is fast and trouble free. What else can one hope for!?

I've stayed at this motel at least 5 times now and each time I have found the rooms to be clean, tidy with the basics supplied. This is not a 5 star hotel - but it is very good for money with only a 2 minute walk into town. Although the motel supplies cooking pots, there is only an electric...

Brilliant location right at the top of the main street. The staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful. Everything you could need in the room was provided. There's a laundry on site which was very useful. I would definitely stay again.

Walk into town, free off street parking provided which was good as Queenstown parking is difficult. Free wifi. Late checkout available if requested early. The inside has been refurbished but the outside needs an update desperately. We were here in January and it was quite warm when we got there as the evening sun beats right into our rooms. There...
