We all loved this 2 bedroom apartment on the ground floor-out our huge lounge window was a very stylish garden and beyond that was the amazing view of Lake Wakatipu. The rooms were very comfortable, clean and extremely quiet to any outside noise. Connah and her crew were very welcoming and helpful-full marks to Connah for going above and beyond for our reservation. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay.

Booked the non-lake view studio for 2. It was cosy and clean. Lucky we didn’t book the lake view because they were renovating anyway. The girls at reception were nice and helpful. The outdoor jacuzzi was good. It was a quiet street and close to town. However the walk uphill was very steep and tiring but good exercise!

We stayed in an apartment here for 5 nights and could not fault the accommodation at all, the reason I could not give a 5 star review is that a person in a wheelchair cannot enjoy the Gym or Hot tub as are located up some steps.

Thank you 007_Richard_E for your comments and for mentioning the gym and hot tub. Not being wheelchair dependant designers of buildings unfortunately don't think of facilities like that. We do hope you will return again and if you requested we could bring some mobile equipment to your room. We hope you have a safe trip home.

We liked these apartments. We had a lake view. Ground level. Large balcony. Fantastic lake and mountain views. Nicely landscaped Alpine garden. The apartment is well appointed and nicely laid out. Spacious. Big modern kitchen. And, big bathroom with separate shower and bath tub. Kitchen cabinets are high up. Slight problem If you’re short or short-ish. At 189 cm ok for me but more challenging for say, my wife. Comfortable living room with easy to light gas fire. Super cosy. And the fire belts out heat. Nice big bed. You can close off the bedroom if your three or four people. Four being ideally a family, not two couples. To get to the bathroom you have to go through the bedroom alcove, which you can close off with a room divider wall. The other two people would be on a sofa bed in the living room area. There’s private parking. There’s no lift if on ground floor. You have to lug your bags down two short flights of stairs. The walk into town is up a hill but very easy and quick to walk. You’re in town in max ten minutes. It’s a bearable walk or a taxi is cheap to run you up the hill. The view is also nice on the walk. We were really pleased with our choice of self-service accommodation here. Staff were great, too.

Thank you for the detailed review of Highview Apartments, it is great when guests explain the complex for us and give their honest comments. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. Only thing I would like to point out is when we have a booking for two couples we would suggest booking a two bedroom Apartment rather than using the pull out sofa bed as you would then also have two bathrooms as well. We hope you have safe travels and would like to welcome you back soon.

We stayed for 5 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment (room 309). It was the corner apartment and not only had amazing views at the front but also to the side. The apartment was spacious, comfortable furniture, good bathroom, great kitchen with lots of equipment, very clean. The staff on the front desk were friendly and helpful. Of course the down side of having an amazing view is that the climb up to the apartments was very steep, but within walking distance to the town.The only thing we could think of to improve the experience would be access to the movie channels on the tv. It was a great place to relax and watch the world go by.

Thank you for your helpful feedback, we will take it on board and look into the channel selection. We do have a selection of DVDs at reception guests are welcome to use during their stay. It is pleasing to hear you found the room to your liking and that our team was able to help you while you were staying in our alpine playground. We hope you have safe travels home and would enjoy welcoming you back again.
