Reviewed 7 September 2017

Had a wonderful time at Earnslaw Lodge, the Owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and clean and the view from the lake view rooms is amazing. A seven minute walk into the Centre of town and with a bus stop for both public transport Bus service and the Busses to the ski fields right out side the front door.
I would defiantly stay there again.

Room Tip: if you don't want cooking facilities choose a lake view room.

Stayed last weekend, just for one night. The check-in process was easy, they allowed us an additional hour before checking out.
The units were clean and the radiators made it very, very warm.
It was an easy walk downhill into town.
It was all that I needed to be for the price and I would definitely stay again.

Our trip to Queenstown on the
3/July 2017 started off with a room with the best view of beautiful
Lake Wakatipu. OMG!! What a view but make sure you asked for the top level room. Its affordable, friendly and helpful staff.
A big thank you to Vicky and team member for carrying our big bag to the top level
The airport shuttle bus stops in front of the lodge and you can wait across the street for the bus going to Cardrona ski resort.
Earnslaw Lodge is about 15 minutes walk to Queenstown city centre, perfect location indeed.
Will definitely go back to the lodge again.
Downside is- no elevator to top level
So pack wisely cos you'll be carrying the heavy suitcase up the stairs

Our room faced the street instead of the lake, so we had no such majestic views that others are describing. Instead, we had a room with cinder block walls and large beams hanging from the ceiling, all of which contributed to a somewhat oppressive feeling. Adding to the weirdness was the fact that our room opened onto a glassed-in balcony, which apparently ran the length of one side of the lodge - including the room next door. I wasn't a fan of our neighbors being able to see into our room if they went out on the balcony, so we kept our curtains closed most of the time. But the staff was friendly, even if the lodge itself was tragically dated, so it wasn't a horrible experience.

Room Tip: Ensure you face the lake, not the street
