I am not usually one to write a bad review but I can’t pass on this one. Positives - location to walk to town and a hot shower. That’s it. Arrived at the hotel to see a closed sign telling us to walk up the road to the next hotel to book in. The person behind the counter was very arrogant and rude, he had someone on the phone on speaker while he scanned our ID and charged us $150 bond for one night. He made it clear that if one tiny thing was out of order he would keep the bond money, even if the neighbours said there was any noise from our room. We got pointed to the room, had nowhere to park and had to walk up three flights of steep concrete stairs to get to our three bedroom apartment. Once inside we wanted a coffee, low and behold, no milk. The apartment was run down, dirty and not serviced well. We opened the two drawers where the cutlery would usually be kept and it was full of building supplies. The sink in the bathroom downstairs did not plug. And when you opened the bathroom window there was a used condom and wrapper right in front of you. When told about this the hotel said “okay we will remove it” The outside “balcony” was so dirty, all the chairs were covered in weeks worth of dust/leaves. I am guttered that this hotel has been let go like this. A change of attitude, staff and a renovation should do the trick .

We booked this unit (304) on line. Turned out to be an excellent choice! Fantastic views across the lake. 3 storey unit with garage below, lounge/dining/kitchen on 2nd floor and bedrooms x2 on top floor. Separate bathrooms for each bedroom. Good heating on the two floors. Kitchen is great with a dish drawer/microwave oven/waste disposal/ceramic top/oven. Well serviced daily.

When visiting the area we stayed in Queenstown for 4 nights at The Lodges. We were "upgraded" to a 3 bedroom apartment when we only booked a 2 bedroom but this was more for their convenience rather than ours I think. For our apartment the only access was via a steep staircase. It didn't worry us but could be troublesome for some. The positives are: -5 minutes walk to the centre. -Apartment has everything you need. -It was very warm with good electric heating. -Good price but this could be due to encouraging post-Covid tourism. -Great view (as seen in the photo from the bedroom window). -Parking right outside the apartment door. The negatives are: -A bit run down, everything works but it feels like there's has been a lack of maintenance. Such as; loose spout on the bath, mismatched light switches, worn threadbare carpet in places, damaged wall where the toilet roll holder should be in one bathroom. -The staff on check-in could have been more helpful. I felt as though I was intruding or interrupting their conversation. -Beds are incredibly soft and both my wife and I ended up with sore backs, (but this is personal and individual to each person). -Very low door handles and steep staircases so had to be aware of the kids at all times. The only reason we would not stay again is due to the beds. We prefer a firm bed and struggled with poor sleep due to the lack of comfort.

Stayed 4 nights in the July 2020 school holidays. 2A and 3C. Great location, great apartment. Warm and spacious. The heated toilet with 4,264 settings and buttons was a highlight. Laundry facilities were unexpected but welcomed. Just watch the kids when it comes to the spa bath. There is not unlimited hot water as I found out standing under a ice cold shower.

DO NOT stay here! Rather cold day in Queenstown, the receptionist was rude and just simply pointed in the direction of our room. Got to the room and it was freezing no heating on for us, dated decor, mouldy window sashes, no milk for coffees, windows broken, only one channel on tv. Location and showers are literally the only positive things I could say. Guess you get what you pay for....
