Historic Stone House Boutique Apartments

Reviewed 21 January 2013

For a self catering boutique apartment, we were delighted. The building has character and is beautifully furnished with modern yet country classic style. Think the total opposite of chintz! We stayed for 2 nights in the one bedroom apartment at the top. The little decking area outside and lounge had great views over the mountain and gondola, and the whole apartment was airy and filled with natural light. Lovely thick thread count bedding, super clean bathroom and well appointed kitchen.

Location is superb....5 minutes easy stroll (very downhill!) into heart of the town by the lakeside... although it takes a tad longer to get back!

The owners were friendly, very helpful and flexible.

Exceeded our expectations for the price, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

The apartment is spacious. With a comfortable living room, kitchen with almost everything, free wifi. We spent a wonderful night there before heading to Fox Glacier. An easy short walk to town centre where we had a wonderful dinner, supermarket, and the skyline. The bedroom is very comfortable and at the right temperature for a good night sleep.

Yet, if you are not fit enough to walk up a steep slope, you should think twice coz it takes you a short steep walk up to the Historic Stone Apartment from the town center. Lastly, the host Alex is very helpful. We had to join a segway tour before check out. We asked Alex what we can do and he had us left our luggage in the apartment and he helped us to keep it in his other B&B so that we can pick them up after our tour. Really helped to make our tour hassle-free. Thank you Alex.

We stayed in the smaller apartment at the end. The jacuzzi was beautiful. Loved soaking in it while it rained, beautiful warm jets....that was nice. Alex, the host, was amazing. He knew the area well and had some great suggestions. I would definitely stay there again. There were two negatives. There is a steep hill to walk down to get to the town centre. Not too bad but if your not fit, forget it. Also, the roof leaked one night. Other than that - all good.

Our visit to Queenstown was made all the more memorable by our stay at Historic Stone House. After a hard day on the slopes, there's nothing better than returning to a warm, cosy and tidy apartment - just like coming home.

Absolutly gorgeous accomodation, located a stones throw from Queenstown. Fantastic mountain views from lounge. Very quiet and private. The hosts were lovely, our apartment was serviced daily as well as lovely fresh towels provded and top up of fresh coffee etc. We stayed in the Alley Apartment was perfect for our honeymoon stay in New Zealand. x

Room Tip: Alley Apartment is perfect for couples. The larger apartment next door would be perfect for a family...

Three of us were very fortunate to secure 4 nights lodging in this 100+ year old house. The house has 3 bedrooms (2 ensuite) and 3 bathrooms. Every room was large, including the kitchen, dining room and the lounge. We were quite comfortable and if we had been staying for a longer time, we would have taken advantage of the great kitchen by cooking our meals. The house is located just a short walk to the center of town. It would have been nicer if there were self service laundry facilities (their laundry fee is $25/load, which seems high). The house was very clean and attention was given to such things as bathrobes and slippers for each room. We really enjoyed out stay here.

Room Tip: We rented the entire house. There are other units at this location but if you have need of three be...
