Fabulous 8.8 From 116 reviews

Very good 8.0
Spacious and luxurious apartment
This place has fully furnished apartments, 4 per floor, but they are non-serviced. It's a good place to crash at night, with an excellent view to Lake Wakapitu, but you need to plan around your meals. Very suitable for a short stay. Keep in mind this place has heating, but no A/C. I visited during summer, with 30+ Celsius and sleeping at night was complicated.

Perfect for a stop in Queenstown
One of the stops traveling Southisland of NZ. The Waterfront is perfect located and has all you need plus a great view from the balcony.
Jochem, au3 night trip
Good 6.0
Amazing view, rooms need some love
The waterfront had amazing views and it was worth staying there for the balcony view (penthouse studio) and the bathroom double showers are great. however, the reception is in the car park, the lift feels like it might break down, the rooms are dated - soooo much potential to be done amazing if the rooms are updated (see rooms at QT for how you should do them!) also no air con which was difficult on a hot summers day. Overall - I am very happy we stayed there for the amazing view, and good room size, but too much potential is being missed!!
