“Decided To Try A New Venue”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

This is very much a family-run venture, and with hosts who have been in the motel business for a long time. The studio unit we had was clean and cosy and for a tourist location, good value for money. We were given some welcome guidance upon arrival, regarding restaurants in the area, and were given a guided tour of our unit, something that I have never encountered in such depth, before. The motel is handy to the shops and the main tourist attractions, and has a beautiful view of the lake.

We had I think the 'honeymoon suite' in this complex with jacuzzi bath and stunning view over the lake. The staff were very kind and helpful and we very much enjoyed our two day stay in Queenstown. We would very much recommend this motel.

Room Tip: We can recommend the honeymoon suite.

We stayed here for 9 nights whilst visiting family in Queenstown and received great service and a friendly welcome. The location is perfect; only 10 minutes walk into town and all the attractions but far enough out to be private and quiet. Our room was a studio in the original block at the back of the plot facing the road and the room was looking a bit tired and in need of updating. However from a brief look at the rooms in the two new blocks seemed to confirm that these are a better standard (though may be more expensive). For the money it would be hard to beat this property though some friends managed a better rate at the Copthorne close by but for a short stay at short notice (no good for us). We would recommend staying at this property and will be returning.

Room Tip: Try to get into the rooms in the new blocks located to the left and right of the car park.

Our room was very clean and reasonably sized and the staff are very friendly. The location is great, its about a 10 min walk to the main streets, so its close enough but still in a private area. The view is just beautiful and its close to all the attractions, worth every penny! Would stay here again definitely!

Located on the main eastern road into Queenstown, around 10 minutes’ walk from the centre, this is an excellent place to stay.

Despite our arriving around 8pm on New Year’s Eve, there was a chatty greeting at check-in, and umbrellas to borrow for protection against the persistent rain. The room was large with a decent kitchenette, as well as a small terrace (for when it isn’t raining!) It was definitely more of an apartment than simply a motel room.

The noise from the road wasn’t noticeable at all, and being a little out of the centre meant that less of the boisterousness that gripped Queenstown over New Year made it to us.

Being only a short walk from bus stops in both directions made travel to Arrowtown very easy, so being without a car was no problem.

We can heartily recommend this place for Queenstown visitors.

This was my first stay in Queenstown and couldn't believe the view as I drove into the motel parking lot. Diane and her husband have treated this property like it is their own home and they are really fortunate to have no buildings blocking the view from their property. A vacant lot stands directly across the street providing one of many spectacular views in Queenstown.

The rooms are nicely laid out and space has been utilized quite well. You have your own kitchenette and laundry facilities are on the property as well. One of the favorite parts of my stay was free internet. This was one of only two places I stayed in all of my travels throughout New Zealand where they didn't want to charge expensive prices to be able to get online.

Diane and her husband are a really friendly couple and you will feel right at home the moment you get there. I know I did, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there.

We arrived in Queenstown not quite knowing where to go or what to see first! Thanks to our host we had a fabulous time in Queenstown and look forward to returning one day soon. Di made this part of our Honeymoon sensational - she recommended eating places, must-do activities along with those not to worry about, and lovely places to visit - each and every place and activity was perfect. Our apartment was beautiful, so clean and cosy with an amazing view! We can't thank you enough Di for making our honeymoon so memorable and we look forward to coming back to Queenstown (to do the things we ran out of time to do.
Highly recommended!!!

Room Tip: The view from the apartment overlooking the lake is amazing!
