If staying here make sure you pay the higher price for the rooms overlooking the lake. The studio room looks back over the carpark and if you are claustrophobic be aware as the room is very small (fits bed and one chair) and not much capacity for preparing any food if this is what you want. We always like to...

We stayed for 4 nights on the top floor apartment with a lake view. (Tip: it's well worth asking for this when booking). The apartment was just perfect - clean, comfy beds, quiet and the kitchen was well equipped. We asked the couch to be made into an extra bed for our two kids, and a room divider wall separated...

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights. The apartments are within walking distance from CBD (less than 1Km) which saved me the trouble of driving and parking in QT. The apartments facing the lake offer magnificent view with their own deck and outside private seating. Private parking also meant I didn't have to worry about a parking space during...

We travel regularly to Queenstown at this time of year. Last few times we have stayed at the same place, but this year we thought we would try something different. These apartments are top notch, well laid out, clean and luxurious. If you don't mind paying a little more than average we would recommend this as a great family apartment....

We booked the Highview Apartments for 6 days and really enjoyed our stay. They have everything you need whether you want to cook in or eat out and there are great views over the lake and surrounding mountains. The apartment has a corridor kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom at the rear and sitting room and balcony area at the front overlooking...

Julie and Jenny were very welcoming and helpful on reception. We stayed 4 nights here and had an excellent view of the lake and city from the room and balcony. One whole wall had sliding glass doors opening right across.There are other rooms which have a view of the car park and these may be cheaper, but to have had...

We are an older couple and have just spent 6 days in Highview Apartments. The unit overlooked the lake and was very well set up, clean, modern, everything we needed. Even a nice balcony to enjoy. The best part (well, we thought so) was that we looked out on to the Earnslaw as she made her trips up and down...

We stayed for 2 nights in one of their lake view apartments, and it was excellent. The views were stunning, a well appointed apartment, very modern and comfortable. We had a washing machine and dishwasher, heated floors in the bathroom and kitchen. The wifi was a bit unstable, but was quickly sorted by reception. A nice walk into town too,...

Luxury One & Two Bedroom Apartments overlooking Lake Wakatipu, from Queenstown Bay across the Remarkables to Walter and Cecil Peaks, watch the TSS Earnslaw steam her way across your view. A short walk from the CBD, Cafes, Restaurants and many of the local activities (or collection points) but away from the busy roads and noise. Self contained to allow that home away from home feel. We look forward to welcoming you. ... more   less
