We loved this facility and highly recommend it. The views of the lake and mountains are breathtaking. Julie at the front desk was very nice and accommodating. The apartment was modern and clean. Internet a little spotty, but not terrible. Queenstown is a great city with a lot to do. The waterfront is a short walk from the apartments (big...

The view is amazing, the bed is soooo comfortable and the apartment has all the amenities you need for a long stay but I do not think the rate we were paying per night for the One Bedroom Apartment was all that worth it. Slow wifi, no aircon, no servicing during our stay (however if we ever wanted a change...

When we first went into the accommodation, we thought, wow! However, after the first impression, we quickly changed our minds, it is definitely style before function. There is very little space in the main room and nowhere to eat your self catered meals. The kitchen area is in the main room but has no sink to wash up in and...

Stayed here for 7 nights and I would highly recommend. I had a studio which was quite spacious. Fridge, microwave, crockery and cutlery very handy. Yes, it is a bit of a walk uphill to get back from town, but most people would be fine. I used the small gym, it has a treadmill, rower, bike, multistation weight machine. Manager...

We arrived before the usual check in time and would be out all afternoon and evening and hoped that we could leave some valuables and collect our key. This was no problem and we really appreciated this. The apartment was massive, the bathroom bigger than my own bathroom at home. Although water did leak out of the shower onto the...

We stayed here for a week in January and found the 2 bedroom apartment to be modern and well-equipped. These are really 2 studios with an interconnecting door and passageway, so each studio apartment is fairly small, although both are fully self-contained. If 4 people want to use the living area in the main studio, it is a bit cramped,...

We stayed at their 1 Bedroom Apartment for 4 days and the room balcony lake/mountain views were by far the best we could find in Queenstown. The hotel is situated further and higher than most other hotels, hence the views from the rooms are uninterrupted and better than other hotels that are near the main city center. The room was...

We visited Queenstown as a family for four days, staying at Highview. It offered a two bedroom apartment with brilliant views from the full length balcony at the rear. The best part is that you can slide the glass doors open to have full floor to ceiling and wall to wall access to the balcony and the view. The amenities...

Thank you for taking the time to review our Apartment complex, and to add photos of your stay,it is always heart warming for us to see photos of people enjoying their time in our alpine setting. Can I point out that as an Apartment complex our guests usually like to be left alone to their adventures and servicing is listed...

The one bedroom apartment has beautiful views of the lake and mountains , the kitchen is well equipped and the open plan appeals . The bathroom/shower area is not too comfortable and the number of available tv channels is restricted ; most disappointing was the fact that our apartment was not serviced during our five night stay ; the lady...

Wanted a great view over the lake, so chose Highview Apartments, and it did not disappoint! We decided it was one of the better places to stay because of the view. Not cheap, but worth the extra as would not of been happy in one of the non-view studio's (which our relations were staying in). Apartments have everything you need...

Thank you for taking the time to comment on our Apartment complex, we agree and think the view is definitely worth the money and find it ever changing year round. From snowy backdrops (and sometimes foreground) to the changing autumn colours, boats on the lake and all the activities in between, to a quiet cuppa and paper on the balcony,...
