We had an incredible stay. Accommodation was beautiful and so well set up for a family. Was great also to be able to use washing machine in our own unit. Incredible, and we were sad to leave. We'll be back.

It's really handy for getting the laundry done if you're travelling around NZ. Views of the lake are lovely. Otherwise, not much to say - rooms are basic. My bed was not comfortable. It's a long walk into queenstown.

Thank you for your review. The walk into town takes 25 minutes, it's a lovely walk along the lake on the Queenstown trail. All of the beds in the one bedroom Suites were replaced with new beds a year ago. They are high quality beds designed for the hotel industry and are fitted with 1000gsm luxury toppers. Most of our...

Our stay at Villa del Lago was very nice. Decently equipped kitchen, fridge and dishwasher, and a gas fireplace make this a great place to stay. Lots of space and wonderful views of the lake. Receptionist was very enthusiastic when describing the many places to see and eat. Half hour walk to downtown Queenstown along the lake. Parking is a...

Look no further then the Villa Del Lago if you are going to stay in Queenstown. Beautiful setting where every room has a view of the lake. Each suite has been well thought out and the furnishings are beautiful. They have done everything right here and you won;t be disappointed.

I do not use the Luxury label very often. We stayed in 7 other hotels in New Zealand before coming to Villa Del Lago and they were all nice "Mid-Range" places. Ideal for our family on a whirlwind tour. Villa Del Lago was Luxury. Clean and comfortable with an absolutely epic view from multiple balconies. We paid more for this...

Oh how wonderful! Many thanks for your lovely review. We try not to use the 'luxury' label either, but are so pleased that everything met your expectations and you felt lavished with a little 'luxury'. Please do come back again! Cheers

This is a fine hotel; friends and I was in room #3, a triplex with 3 bedrooms; full kitchen - stove, oven, microwave, automatic dishwasher, washer & dryer. The Pak-N-Save was about 5 kilometers near the airport where we shopped for our breakfasts, lunches and dinners. The room provided complimentary instant coffee and tea & bathroom toiletries. My bedroom had...

Thank you very much for your wonderful review. For clarity, our fires are gas powered and have real flame and logs in the fire box. They are on a thermostat so they come on to heat up the apartment up to the temperature set on the thermostat. Please do come and stay again some day! Cheers

The views are truly breathtaking. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They've thought of everything that you'll need in the rooms and kitchens. Big lounges with new TVs that you'll never need with this view. Staying here is definitely worth it.

My husband and I spent 1 week of our honeymoon in a one bedroom villa, and absolutely loved it! The lake views are pristine, and being a short way outside of downtown meant a quiet, serene location for our stay. Being fairly active, we very much enjoyed the beautiful stroll into town along the lakeside path. The staff we interacted...
