        The staff were excellent made us feel at home and that nothing was too much trouble to organise for us. Overall excleent will stay there in future and recommend to friends and family.

        Only thing missing was a bath robe.

      • Family with children
        10.0

        Very comfortable, easy, quality accommodation in an excellent location for our week in Queenstown. With a bus stop right outside for the coach to the Mountains every day and a 10 minute walk into town this was an ideal location for our Snowboarding holiday. Very friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble. We were very impressed. Everything we needed in the apartment. Perfect for us.

      • Group of friends

        "Studio" suggests a largish room with separate sitting/sleeping/cooking areas. The room was no larger than a standard hotel room with no place to sit other than on the beds if you want to watch tv.

      • Family with children
        6.6

        Be warned, these apartments are less than twenty feet from the main road into Queenstown and whilst the windows are double glazed, the traffic noise is constant!!! Lovely staff, nice apartment,but too noisy - sorry but we wont be back.

        Traffic noise!!!!!

      • Group of friends

        We loved the layout and design of the apartments. The fireplace was fastastic during those cold nights.

      • Older travelers

        The room was clean and modern. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was ok, about a 15 minute walk from town.

        We had a studio room. They were too small for the money paid. The king bed took up almost the entire room. My wife and I had difficulity moving around the room at the same time when we were getting dressed. Also there is no daily service of the rooms in the rate. We stayed for 3 days, and they should have at least provided new towels. The one bedroom units are much larger and are probably a better value for the money.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        Beautiful location with good access to bus service. Free wifi with good connection

        Very limited cooking facilities in the Studio Appartment - only kettle, toaster and microwave

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        I and my friends decided to upgraded from two studios to 2-bedroom apartment as the Pounamu apartment's staff recommended. It was absolutely right decision. Really great comfort. We were really impressed!

      • Couple

        The Lake view , and that it was just a walk from the town centre.

        No robes would be my one and only criticism. . No one wants to pack a robe , takes up to much room in suitcase , so it is nice to have a robe in the room, Especially after you shower. .

      • Older travelers

        Extremely well appointed and well equipped apartment in a fabulous position with lake views

        No complaints

        The view.

        The bed was rock hard. The room was much smaller than we expected. We were expected to take our shoes off before entering the apartment, I have travelled around the world and never been asked that before?

      • Couple

        The room was new and very clean

        The room was small and the access up many stairs was difficult with luggage

        Great view from room. All amenities included -- fridge, microwave, oven, stove, toaster, laundry, etc,

        A bit of a walk to town.
