This studio was the icing on the cake for our stay. Had a first floor studio, it was a lovely big room and a balcony with view to die for. Nice new sofa, dining table and a superking bed. Separate toilet from the bathroom which was a bonus. The kitchen was not new but it was well equipped and spotlessly...

Perfect location on the edge of the lake with incredible views and a short stroll to the town. The rooms were of a very high standard and very well equipped but contrary to the sign outside and despite its high cost you have to pay extra for WiFi!!! This is even more puzzling as every other hotel offers it for...

I would like to thank The Lodges in Qieenstown for exercising compassion and flexibility in dealing with a very difficult family situation in March which affected our booking. Thank you again and if we get down that way again, The Lodges will be top of our accommodation list. Jan Patterson, Auckland, and her Christchurch whanau

We planned our tour of New Zealand and booked all our accommodation almost a year ahead of time. Our booking at The Lodges was for an "Executive 3 bedroom apartment" with en-suite facilities. On arrival the accommodation given included 3 bedrooms, all on the upper floor. One was at the front and was very small with twin beds and no...

My unit had a lake view and it was just spectacular, particularly watching the Earnslaw cruising up and down the lake. The motel itself was clean and reasonably well sized and equipped. Separate lounge/kitchen area and a dining table, reasonably sized bathroom and double bedroom. There were a few minor signs of wear and tear but nothing major and linen...

Stayed at The Lodges for 5 nights. We had a 3 bedroom apartment, number 7. The view was good and the apartment was spacious. The location is ideal for those who wish to stay close to the centre but far enough away from all the hustle and bustle. We loved the spa bath and made good use of this! And...

The Lodges is a great centrally located place to stay in Queenstown with some stunning views of The Remarkables. Myself and some friends stayed in the Penthouse suite which was extremely nice apart from the beds which weren't the most comfortable things to sleep in. Wi-Fi is also not included and has to be purchased extra which is unfortunate considering...

We stayed for five nights in Unit 16 (Moles Hole) the room was comfortable, and nicely decorated, the kitchenette small, but perfectly adequate with stainless steel work tops and a dishwasher. There were two very comfortable armchairs and a circular table, which was adequate for occasional use but could not be used for dining unless you sat on the arms...

The room we got compared to what is advertised was a bid disappointment. Not easy to re-charge our devices. Our view was two cars in front of our window, instead of a beautiful view down to the lake. It was OK considering we had just come off of Keplar Track. Just not what we were looking for.

Delightful well located and clean holiday apartments. Self catered and spacious. Ours had a stunning view over the water . 5 mins walk into city centre and attractions. Beautiful walks at the doorstep .
