Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Not sign posted when travelling south from Queenstown, via State Highway 6. I had read about it being a "must see" and knew roughly where it was. The layby to pull over is set up for those travelling north. Fortunately there was little traffic and we were able to cross over and park the car to take photos of the amazing coastline.
Not sure where the name "Devil's Staircase" came from!

A bit over rated in my opinion. Nice views and interesting road through to east coast but…I’d say it is one of the spots to stop but don’t expect a lot.

The drive along this road is simply stunning. The seemingly never ending snaking road alongside this magnificent lake with the reflection of the hill range and clouds in the water is a photographer’s dream, alongside many other places in this beautiful country.

I have to admit… I am deeply disappointed… I was very keen to see the devil on a staircase but there was no devil and also no staircase… not even a ladder. Therefore I have to say that this thing does not deliver what it promises from a title point of view!

Jokes aside - it is a solid view point but nothing more. It would be great if there would have been a sign explaining what the devils staircase is. We assume that it is the road close to the water. If you are anyways driving through give it a go and do a short stop. But it is not on your „plan“ dont extra drive there it is not worth it.

The Devils Staircase lookout is not 2911 Kingston Rd which is a private address. The Devils Staircase is the ridge which extends from the lake north of the Staircase Creek.

Great stop, with nice views on a clear day. Worth a 2min stop from Te Anau to Queenstown (or other way). There are 2x points to look after?

This is well worth stopping at as the view along the lake is magnificent. There’s no walking to do so you can quickly take your photos and jump back in the car.

Amazing views. Devil's Staircase (road winding up and round lake). Part of the country not to be missed. Many lovely spots to stop and picnic or swim.

Where the devil is the Devils staircase. Nice views but... not really. Not worth a drive from Queenstown just to go there.

Stopped on the lay by viewing spot and not sure where the Devil's Staircase actually was - nevertheless great views.
