We were welcomed by a friendly lady at the desk. All service was kind and helpful. We stayed in one of their 2nd floor/top floor apartments next to Botswana Butchery (great place for lunch and dinner). It was clean, spacious, nice view of the lake, had a washer and dryer, and kitchen. The bed was large and comfortable, fluffy pillows. My only dislike in the bedroom was the skylight over the bed. It has a shade, but light still comes in. I recommend using an eye mask if you'd like to sleep late. There is a DVD player, but it doesn't take US DVD's and there are not a lot of channels (and the sound was not in sync). BUT if you're in Queenstown you're hopefully more interested in everything you can do outdoors.
If you don't plan your activities beforehand, an Eichardt employee would be happy to make recommendations and book for you.
BREAKFAST was delicious every day, great options and service.
