loved location, helpful staff and lovely viet”

I spent 3 nights at the St. James Apartments. On entry I was a little concerned, the was vaccuming going on and few people getting in or out. Specially since it is not our standard reception area like big hotels, I was a little worried. Check in was easy headed to Room 307. Actually it was a suite, two huge beds, each equipped with shower etc, then the was the kitchen a living room and dinning table. In honesty 6 people could fit just fine. Everything was clean and well appointed. The the was the view from the balcony ( looking directly at the very green hill was nice every morning. Plus you are in the middle of downtown Queenstown. So you are proximal to grocery store and restaurants. The staff I dealt with mostly was super helpful, she even helped me book my day flight to Milsford Sounds ( must do). Now it was a little pricey and a little noise since Room windows open to a road. But all I needed to do was close the window and noise dead down. Thank you for great stay! Keep it up!

Location & kindness was great”

I selected St. James Apartment for my tracking friend group of 8 person. As i read reviews and by contacting the staff , it looked to meet my requirements; 1. within 500m from the Station Information Center, 2. cleanness, 3. storage availability for extra luggages during multi-day mountain trail hiking. St. James Apartment met requirments and exceeded expectations. The distance was less than 5min by walking to the place i wanted and most of stores & restaurants in the downtown. Cleanness was great and storage room was good to keep our luggages of 6 carrier bags. Room and beds were clean enough and livingroom was convinient for group travelers. And another big plus was communication with the staffs before & after reservation through email. Though lots of questions about the facility, they reponded back quite quickly with the answers that i needed. Not good - the rooms have inside stairs and it's inconvinient. I recommend here for group hikers.

"Great location - Friendly management"”

Good sized rooms, close to main centre points within Queenstown, back off main riads so no noise, friendly managemant staff

Really enjoyed our time at Queenstown, Big component of this was the tranquil environment within the St james apartments. Management was friendly and willing to ensure our stay was enjoyable. Would highly recommend to pending visitors of Queenstown to seriously consider St james as your accommodation, if you are looking for Quality & peaceful accommodation - that is close to Queenstown main street shops.

4/5 Excellent location, spacious and clean rooms”

Location, bathroom, cleanliness

The location is the best thing about St James Apartments. We stayed during the winter and had snowboarding gear so it was very convenient to be in the city rather than having to lug everything up and down the hills of Queenstown from accomodation located further away. The buses have a pick up location at the Novotel which is just down the road. The apartments are located right in the centre of Queenstown so everything is really accessible by foot. The room was very clean with a modern kitchen and bathroom. The heated towel rail would get extremely hot though so that was a concern. We gave this place a 4/5 as their staff were not always easily contactable and they had no drying racks to hang washed clothes. We ended up hanging our clothes in the bathroom and doorknobs. Also note that the dry room for snow gear is quite small and it is also used as a storage room.

The location was perfect, the room was clean and better than the photo's!

We were really happy with out choice of St James! The location was prime - only a short walk to the main centre of town in Queenstown. The rooms were clean and housekeeping was great. The rooms looked better than the photos (which was a nice surprise). Definitely would recommend. We were really happy and super impressed :) The wifi was also only $5 per 1GB which was amazing compared to some ridiculous prices back in Aus...so all in all, super happy! :)

Location, size of rooms and comfortable beds

The St James Apartments are located in central Queenstown, a stone's throw from the main shopping and touristy area. The apartments are a good size and are clean and spacious. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen facilities are good and the bathroom is a good size, with a bath. Although the interior of the apartments can seem dated, it adds to the charm of self service accommodation here in NZ. I would stay at these apartments again and have already recommended them to friends!

Great Location, spacious apartment, very well appointed

This was our second stay at the St. James Apartments in an executive two bedroom. It was very spacious with two bathrooms so ideal for a family or two couples. It was very well self contained with lots of cooking utensils, variety of pots, pans, toasters, coffee plunger, assortment of nice glasses, good crockery and large fridge. You could easily cook a nice dinner for 6 in the large modern kitchen. The lounge area had a cosy gas fire as well as wall heating. All bedrooms had very efficient wall heaters and tile floors had underfloor heating so it was very cosy. There were lake and church views from the lounge/dining room and small balcony that would be lovely in summer. Overall we found it to be perfectly suited to our needs and a very good price so would definitely come back again.

Loved the location !!! It is walking distant to all location in central queenstown. Actually unless you need to leave the queenstown downtown area else there is no need for you to drive. We had our rental car parked in the garage during our entire day while we walked around which is more convienent as parking is not easily available in the CBD area. Apartment is well maintained and have all amenties required. Will definitely stay in this apartment again if I will go Queenstown again.

Great Location”

We stayed on both ends of our Routeburn Track hike. It was very convenient to the Ultimate Hikes office and for storing luggage during the hike. There was quite a bit of difference in the bathroom facilities between the two standard one bedroom apartments. (#106 was updated, #107 wasn't). Luckily we didn't need to use the parking spaces for more than the time it took to check in before returning to the rental agency. The spaces were way too narrow. I would definitely return to the St James apts for our purposes.

Easy & convenient lodgings in Queenstown”

Location - so easy

The St James Apartments were a great place to spend five days. We booked a one bedroom apartment and it was massive, albeit rather beige in decor. Our apartment could have done with some new carpet to help budge it out of the 70's. The "kitchen" was limited to a microwave, a sink, a mini bar fridge and a portable hot plate, which was fine for making porridge or eggs in the morning (although it did take an age to heat up). It was basic, comfortable accommodation and whisper quiet. Would definitely stay again, but maybe look at a studio instead that's been renovated.
