This was an amazing apartment with amazing views. We had booked a 2 bedroom apartment but on arrival found that we had been upgraded to a 3 bedroom which worked out perfectly for us. The distance to town was about an $11 taxi ride or a 3min drive. Location was perfect! And so cheap!

We stayed here as it was close to family. On arrival the office was locked, we used the phone as it states this on the door, (we arrived at 3pm inside office hours) every time I picked it up it went straight to a answer phone. We tried several times. Then my husband and i rang on our cell phones... More

Although a little out from the central city, this provides amazing views of the lake as well as a bit more quiet and affordable rate. Located on the point almost halfway between queenstown Franktown and CBD. A short drive or 20 minute walk sees you back in the thick of what queenstown has to offer. Modern and well maintained studios... More

The room was warm and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. Staff were very nice. The views of the lake and mountains were wonderful. We had a small kitchenette, which was a really great bonus. The walk along the Frankton Trail (alongside the lake) was really good. It took about half an hour, because we took the long way around... More

Quiet and amazing views. The room was warm when we arrived and stayed warm throughout. The bed was a bit uncomfortable and could use a new mattress but other than that it was excellent accommodation. The wifi was hard to connect to, and the cell data coverage was 'iffy' but when you're on holiday thats not a terrible thing.

A lovely weekend away and spent in a top location. Our room was quiet with lovely views and great access to the superb Queenstown trail. From here we were 15 minutes walk into town. Amenities were adequate and we loved the peaceful atmosphere.

Receptionist was very nice,they had warmed up the room for us ..enough parking space,spacious rooms and amazing views ! But those days you kind of assume free wifi,not paying ridiculous money for it (literally cheaper to buy data for your phone than use their internet ). Overall i loved it,but wouldn't return until they sort their internet out.
