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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Ok the the plus - it's location is in the CBD, a 2 minute walk to the wharf and 5 minute walk to the Skyline Gondola. The facilities and fit out are functional and a full kitchen is a plus. However it is let down by its standards of cleanliness. Toothpaste on the bathroom vanity and blood on two walls suggest that cleanliness is not high on the agenda here.

Glad we were only here over night.....there was water dripping in on the couch and another leak dripping on carpet, the manager unfazed (like it happens all the time) just gave up a pile of towels to deal with it. This place needs some money spent on it!

Warning - if you make a booking to stay at The Lofts Apartments, Queenstown, they MAY NOT HONOUR THE BOOKING. This was my experience. I had planned to stay there this December (2023), and booked more than one month ago, but have now found THERE IS NO ROOM AT THE INN for me and my family. This has caused me alot of last-minute angst before leaving Australia to visit New Zealand. My booking was confirmed by the Lofts Apartments, and by the booking agent more than a month ago. Yet only a few days ago, the Lofts Apartment claimed that they had no accommodation available for me and my family. A week before that, I received a message saying there was something wrong with my credit card. I checked with my bank, and there was nothing wrong at my end. The property was just trying to force ME to cancel the booking. The Lofts Apartment has given me no reason for the rooms I booked being suddenly unavailable, and no apology. Their confirmation of my booking meant absolutely nothing. I am very angry at having so much of my time wasted, and I have found management at The Lofts Apartments Queenstown to be extremely untrustworthy.

Great place to stay right in the heart of Queenstown. TV didn't work, but that didn't worry us that much as we don't really watch TV anyway. Inexpensive room. No view, but thats what we paid for. Just walked over the road to the lake for a Ferg pie on the lake for breakfast.

A mixed review from me. Our room had a modern kitchenette, bathroom was not new but tidy, and I didn't notice any problems with cleanliness (other reviews mention this as a problem). The location is amazing so it's probably well priced because of that. Negatives... two flannels provided for three guests, electrical plugs hanging out of the gib walls which is dangerous, not enough bedding and we were cold, and a person could pee more than the pitiful flow of the shower! I would stay again, but I'd ask to see room first to assess it first. Staff were very nice

Awesome place to stay. Our room was fantastic, very comfy beds. great big couches in the lounge and the kitchen was good. Showers were powerful like we enjoy and the bathrooms were very clean and tidy. The location was perfect for us right in town and what a great view !!! We will definitely be back to the Lofts

The pics for this property looked like the place was renovated- not our room. Cracked crockery, nothing matching, says 4 small plates-3 are saucers! Glasses had lipstick & plates food stuck on them. 2 mis matched bowls were grubby & chipped. Bed lumpy, but sheets clean. Old synthetic blanket. Bed side tables are 1970s foot stools. Holes and stains on wallpaper, floors had hair and ingrained dirt. Oldest microwave ever turned yellow with age. tv not working even after the office tried to fix 3 times. Bathroom renovated, but weird set up & not wide enough to dry yrself. Washing machine/dryer worked. New fridge. Good location.

Unfortunately our room looked NOTHING like the photos. We got room 101, a room mere metres away from the busy street. The room was so dark and dismal, and the windows opened on to the street. There were no net curtains or sheers so we couldn’t even have the curtain open as people could see straight in from the street. We were awoken at 6am by the rubbish being collected. I couldn’t sit next to my husband on the couch as there was no back to half of the couch so he had to have a cushion against the window but was still somewhat behind me. The shower had a facecloth left in there from previous occupants. The biggest gripe was that there was a sign out front advertising rooms for $150/night, we paid almost $450/night - 3x as much as that room was worth. We feel the photos on the site were completely misleading. It says some rooms have a view – my booking stated a mountain view and city view, I had neither. While they might have a photo of the interior of our room many photos into the collection, it does not show the dark timber ceiling so does not reflect the dark dismal room that we had, particularly when we couldn’t open the curtains. I emailed the company via booking.com and their own website but have heard nothing back.

We had originally booked in their sister apartments, but because of a fault we got moved to here. Great location, and friendly receptionist. The beds are comfortable and clean. The negatives, the decor could do with an update, and because of its location we were woken up constantly from drunk people arriving back at all hours. You can hear EVERYTHING 😳

Booked through Expedia as rooms were available. Took the money. Got to Loft apartments to check in - no room. They have breached Expedia contract by making rooms available when there were none. Very rude. Refused to find another room at another hotel. Wouldn't bother again.
