Lovely place to stay. The rooms are roomy with great Lake views. Brekky available & good value for money. Not far from town the walk is a nice one. Most organised trips will pick you up & drop you back.

Very nice people running the lodge. The room was clean and more than adequate, with a very comfortable bed. For QT, I thought the price of $110 USD was reasonable. They also stored my luggage for 5 days when I was on the Milford Track; and at no charge. Very convenient to the city center; about a 10 minute walk....

We thoroughly enjoyed our four night stay here. We had chosen a studio with lake view and what a view we had from our balcony. Stunning! Check in was friendly and fast and our room was very spacious, clean and quiet. We loved the walks into the centre of Queenstown via the gorgeous park and along the waterfront. The scenery...

Ours was a very large room with fridge and microwave facilities on the ground floor with no views. However, the hotel has rooms with great views to the mountains and lake. Clean, comfortable and super friendly management and staff who'll make your stay an enjoyable one. Walking distance to the lake, and from there, about 20 minute-walk downtown, which is...

Have stayed here for 2 nights. Easy check in, very friendly receptionist. Room was big, nice lake view from the communal balcony, small kitchenette came handy. Poor selection of bathroom amneties...otherwise the room was pretty clean. Needed to ask for additional coffee sachets every day, not very generous with tea and coffee, unless you'll go and ask for it, Great...

We stayed here in the courtyard studio which was in the basement and hardly had any view, but had a kitchenette and was decently furnished. Biggest advantage of this was the location, so close to the happening part of Queenstown, Recommended for a couple of days stay in this otherwise costly resort town.

What my wife and I experienced was great location - 8-10 mins walk to town, clean and friendly ownership at a fair price. Cooked breakfast was good. We were fortunate that there 4 night minimum was waved if we accepted a room without a view of the lake as it was high season (late December) and we had only planned...

We stayed here in rooms 3( studio) and 2 ( 2 bed apt. ) with our daughter and family. The views from the rooms were excellent. Have stayed here before some years ago but it has recently changed hands, it is a good clean and nicely appointed motel close to town, 10 min walk by road or via lakeside. Good...
