Fabulous 8.6 From 131 reviews

Very good 8.0
Nice place but noisy
It was a nice place but you have to book a room at lake view. The room facing the road was very noisy as there was a constant traffic. With no A/C, we had the windows open but it was too noisy.

Lakeside location
Superb views lakeside. Hoping for a hotplate cooking facility but not available in our room. Refurbishment to bathroom required soon. Walking distance to town centre.

Seriously avoid the rooms not facing the lake
If you stay in the lake side, the view is fantastic. But if you are in the other side, not only you do not have a good view, you have very little air to breath and the room is in a very bad shape. We were in the other side and changed our room after one night after paying the additional charge. So I would rate the hotel "1" for my first night and "8" for the second night. "8" is for the view. So my overall rating is the average of my impression from my two rooms.The rooms are huge, but the furniture is kind of old and peeled off. The worse part of it is that the shower does not have an even one square inch of stand to put your soap on. How much does it cost to add a little place to hold your soap? And compared to services we received from other hotels in New Zealand the hosts were not as friendly and cooperative.

Lovely room with a balcony and a lake view! Spacious room. Good location easy to walk to gardens and into town. Quiet room, (we were on the lakeside). Would return gladly!

Affordable Stay
OK walk to town center without the downtown price. Property was a bit run down.

Amazing views
We had a great stay, the view from our room was amazing. We would return. It is a little out of town and quite a hike up the hill from town (the area is very hilly). The manager was very accommodating and helpful.

Mixed Stay
We loved Queenstown. The Lodge was pleasant enough and we were within walking distance to the CBD. Our room was spacious, but carpet frayed and bathroom a bit tired. We were downstairs and the wi-fi was terrible, hard to get and dropping out
Andrea, au2 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
Comfortable stay in Queenstown
We spent our first night at Earnslaw Lodge in a ground floor room which was very spacious but rather dark with a view of the road. The owner then kindly offered to move us to a spacious first floor room which was much brighter with a side view of the lake for our remaining two nights so we were very happy. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. The Motel was a short 10min walk from the centre of Queenstown. We spent a very pleasant three nights at Earnslaw Lodge.
