“overpriced and we did not feel well”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013 via mobile

The room had the charm of a very ordinary motel, especially with the parking directly in front of our windows and jalousies which have not been in order. The furnishing of the room is not very comfortable and it is not very funny to use a bathroom at low outside temperatures when the heating does not work at all.
This chalet has been very disappointing especially in the class of that price level.
That is why we cannot recommend this chalet!

Thanks for choosing to stay with us, it was a pleasure to meet you both. We are always here to help guests from breakfast, to arranging your trip to Glenorchy on the Dart River, the heating in all rooms is controlled by you and is simple matter of turning the switch on. We are price concuss B & B and as you travel around New Zealand, we do offer value for money. Hope the weather was as sunny as your time in Queenstown. Safe travels.& kind regards Alex

My husband and I spent 4 nights staying at the Chalet at the begining of november and would thoroughly recommend this b & b - wonderful friendly helpful staff with spacious rooms and a fantastic breakfast each morning. Great views of the lake also - a perfect spot!

This is our eleventh day in NZ with nine motels behind us. Chalet Queenstown was by far the best. The staff was friendly, kind and helpful. They have been responsive to each and every one of our needs for our three day stay. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. In addition to the lovely room we had a balcony with a table and chairs over looking the garden.We enjoyed the short walk to town. Best of all the owner, Alex, and his manager,Rona, provide a full gourmet breakfast which was included in the price of the room. If you are in Queenstown, this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms.

All around excellent experience. Perfectly located a short walk from downtown Queenstown, but out of the noise and bustle. Our room was extremely comfortable, and had great views of the lake. Rhona (spelling?), the manager/cook, took excellent care of us. She cooks a mean breakfast, made great recommendations for food and activities, and plied us with baking experiments during the afternoon.

Great little hotel with the greatest service I've ever had, any problem that I could have the manager of the hotel, Alex, resolved for me. And the best breakfast of Queenstown!
It's in a realy good area, just 5 min walking to the centre of the city.
Great accommodations, the rooms are great!
I'm realy glad I've stayed here!
