This was our first trip to Queenstown and when looking for a place to stay I was looking for somewhere within walking distance to town, with a view, a spa bath and a kitchen area. This motel ticked all our boxes and we were not disappointed. We had a spa studio unit with a large balcony on the top floor. The motel has been renovated recently and everything was very clean and sparkling new. We arrived on a beautiful day and the view was amazing. We loved our little home for 6 days. The Heat pump was virtually soundless and very efficient. The kitchen area with granite bench, hob top and mircrowave and expelair had everything we needed. There is a notice up asking you not to cook fresh or frozen fish or odorous foods, so I must admit I was a bit paranoid about the foods I cooked (mainly spicy noodles in our case!) However, it was not a problem. The spa bath was wonderful to relax in after a long day out exploring. Not really big enough for two...but where there's a will!!!!! You can even watch TV in the bath as there is a second screen in the bathroom. Shower was great too. Queen Bed was comfortable with electric blanket, which we didn't use as the room was warm anyway. Sky TV and WiFi internet, which was great at $5 a day, and in our case $5 for the whole week as we only checked our emails and Facebook messsages. The towels were changed daily and the bed pulled up and coffee and tea topped up. The Laundry is on the bottom floor and is $2 a load and $2 hr for the dryer. There is an honesty box in the laundry. The motel is about 600m walk downhill into town. Uphill coming home, but most places in Queenstown are. We had an 11am check out on our last day and Helen, the Manager happily stored our bags in Reception while we went into Queenstown for a final lunch at Aggies Shack - fish and chips on the Wharf! Yum! She booked us a taxi to the airport when we arrived back. We really enjoyed our stay, as first timers to Queenstown. The Beginners skiiing package was ideal for us....we loved the Gondola and rode the luge, visited Arrowtown and Glenorchy and sampled the wonderful food and wine on offer everywhere. We are definitely now fans of Queenstown and can't wait to return.
