We stayed in a one bedroom suite, No. 9, which had the bedroom at the rear but this had no natural light apart from the doors to the adjoining lounge, which had large patio doors. The bathroom was quite dated with a shower over a bath and just basic white tiles but the kitchen was well equipped and had a...

My partner and I stayed here the first two nights of our one month trip to New Zealand and I recommend this accommodation enthusiastically. We arrived a few hours before official check-in time and understood that it was not guaranteed that our room be ready; however, it was ready and we were able to settle in right away. The view...

The views of the Remarkables is amazing and the apartment was comfortable and clean, but the service is what I appreciated the most. The staff made sure our excursions were organized according to the weather and all went off without a hitch. I highly recommend that you let them handle your plans during your visit to Queenstown!

Thank you for your lovely review. We are so pleased everything went well for you. We are always happy to help make appropriate suggestions and arrange excursions. Our prices and deals are the same as those offered downtown and online - but we are better at forecasting the weather! Cheers

We stay here just before Christmas and it was a wonderful experience. The view was incredible and beautiful, with the sunset's mauve sunlight hitting the peaks as the lake cools to a dark blue. The hotel was comfortable and the facilities was very nice. The room was well situated for the outside view. Parking provided a little tricky, but it...

My husband and I stayed in unit 7 for six nights. It was a perfect base AND haven for our stay in Queenstown. The staff were friendly and the unit could not have been more perfect. After busy days of sightseeing, often we stayed in and just enjoyed the apartment with its cozy fireplace and movies that we borrowed from...

Our family of six rented a three bedroom. Spacious, clean apartments with such an amazing view. Staff was very friendly. We had no car, so it was a 25 minute walk into town or a quick taxi ride home. Would highly recommend.

Only had two nights here on our journey around New Zealand. This was very up market with great furnishings and all facilities. It all felt well maintained and clean. Even managed to get some washing and ironing done looking out over the lake. There was a nice gas fire to take the chill away and can imagine it to be...

Great apartment equiped with all you need: space, comfort, outside seating and amazing views over the lake. We particularly enjoyed sitting in front of the fireplace looking over the changing scenery outside. The location is a bit out of town - but easy accessible by walking or by bus / taxi, if you don't want to drive. Parking is a...

Thank you very much for your lovely review. All Villas and Suites have a free car park in an area closest to their apartment, but there is no 'designated' or numbered parking per se. The numbered parks are for neighbouring apartments that are not part of Villa del Lago so they are clearly distinguishable. We try and keep it as...

This was my second stay at Villa del Lago after having stayed at the property three years ago. This time, I returned with my partner and if anything it was even better than the first time. The apartment that we stayed in seemed to have been newly renovated (with a big curved-screen LCD TV), and there was more than ample...

Stunning views of the lake and The Remarkables that can be enjoyed from the patio, full kitchen, dining area, front room and bedroom of the extremely comfortable, immaculate, upscale suite complete with fireplace :) Loved the washer and dryer in the suite and the heated bathroom floor, too.
