The motel that fronts as a lodge allocated us a basement room [#14] - could not see the sky - unmaintained garden about 2m from the window/door - had not been cleaned in a very long time - definitely could not see any Queenstown mountains or lake view. A very bad option for Queenstown value ... we were aware the...

Good room with well equipped kitchen area and great views of the lake. Laundry room and restaurant on site. Good parking right by the room. It's a walk into town but if you take the route they recommend it avoids the very steep part of the road coming back up and the walk through the park is nice. Staff very...

The Earnslaw Lodge has been here for many years and I stayed here in 1989. Today it still has the welcoming charm that it had then even though management has changed. The rooms are spacious and views on the lakeside are superb. We were on the road side and the view outside was dominated by a modern edifice opposite. Looking...

We had 2 nights in Queenstown and this is our second visit to Queenstown since 2014. The motel looks slightly old but still functional. When we were there, apparently the motel had just been taken over by new owners but that didnt matter as much. As we were travelling in a family of 4 adults, we were given the biggest...

An easy walk into town. We had lake views but it was at car park level and lacked any privacy when we opened the curtains. The lodge's staff were friendly and very helpful however the building and room we stayed in was tired. The taps leaked and the shower was almost impossible.

We opted for a courtyard view, but the lake is just one street behind the motel, so it was still relatively near. The city centre is about 15 min walk away along the main road, so it was quite easy to get there. The towels were changed and rubbish was cleared daily. There were cooking amenities in the room, so...

An average motel, not bad but not great. The advantages were; the lake facing rooms have a fantastic view out over the lake and golf course, close to the town centre, free parking, clean and tidy. The disadvantages were, it's a bit dated and looks very 90's, the rooms aren't especially well equipped (just a tv, kettle and fridge so...

Great views of the lake. Close to the town centre along the road and close to the walking trail to the Botanical Garden and around to the town centre. Good value breakfast and great customer service. Good basic amenities.
