We are a couple in our 50s travelling with late teens to Queenstown . Our late checkin procedure was very smooth. Apt is very clean n well equipped, esp kitchen. Location is near all the restaurants , mini marts n even supermarkets. Tour Operators offices r all within walking distance. Showers , heaters n fans all worked very well. View of the lake is breathtaking. We highly recommend waterfront apts!

The lady in the reception was so helpful and friendly, that gave us a great greeting. When we opened the door, the view was fantastic. All the rooms were the same as the pictures. You can park your car just in front of the house. Parking in queenstown is not a easy one. Just park the car and walk to the town,shopping, dining ,or even the skyline. You would love this choice as I do.

Great location, space, and facilities”

The heater in the room for cold days is not enough, need to ask for extra heater or electric blanket. We traveled I'm new Zealand from 5/17, I know most good quality accommodation can provide in the room(strong heater, air condition, or electric blanket). We are traveling with baby and our parents, we can't let our family have chance to get sick while sleeping. One of the managers at the reception first day ask us to tell them if we really feel code at the first night (so strange, we already use the heater more than three hours and we really feel cold in the room though she finally give us a extra heater after we use agoda message to complaint this) and when the manager leave our apartments complaint we are ridiculous(michelle). The second day my parents told me they feel very cold at night and my mom doesn't feel well, therefore we put the extra heater we got first day in my parents room. And ask extra heater or electric blanket for my parent's. The second day manager do help us quickly, but she mentioned in soda message our room is very hot (I put the extra heater in my parents room that's why when staff is coming the room is warm). I talked to other guests also stay in the apartments they feel warm in the room because the first day the apartment staff already provide electronic blanket. And manager Michelle not give us two extra heater first day because the other apartment need one. I don't believe most apartment room are warm enough with the weak heater, especially the days we stayed queenstown temperature went down quickly.

Fantastic view in room.”

It's no service apartment if you want services this place is not match. But Lake Wakatipu view, just inside your room, compensate that shortcoming. Convinient in room is full, kitchenware, dish washer, sofa, dining table. The two bedroom apartment type is match for group and family. Go to middle Queenstown just few walk. Just get and drop the key form letter box when outside office hour, don't be worry.

Its very good mostly but the windows are fixed and do not open Only ventilation is the balcony door and my wife would not sleep with it open There is no airconditioning which with fixed windows is essential The building is old and the elevator very slow The carparking was designed for small cars and ours would not fit in to the carpark Stove is a little quirky and only very small pans with no electric frypan Would be better if service was every three days rather than weekly The tariff justifies a more regular service Great views/great position Staff obliging as far as they can be
