We just got home from a week long stay here. Wayne, the owner, was super friendly and helpful and made our stay there even more enjoyable. Spent 4 days snowboarding at the Remarkables and this place was a great base. So close to town and very well equipped. We can't wait to visit again!!!

We stayed here on our honeymoon for 2 nights. Our flights got cancelled getting to NZ which meant we were a day late arriving. Called up before hand and Wayne put a smile on my face with how helpful he was. He changed the dates with no issue. Its what I needed after finding out our flights were cancelled.
When we arrived Wayne was very helpful and explained everything to perfection. He gave us great ideas of what to do and offered great advice on different things to do.
The apartment was in perfect condition and had everything you need. Location was excellent and only a short walk to the the center of Queenstown and everything is offers.
It truly was a great start to our honeymoon and I thank Wayne & Joan for that.
The banter with the Rugby was fun to....Ireland will eventually get one over on NZ :-)
If I ever get back to Queenstown it will be the only place I will stay

The apartment as very good with good kitchen facilities for inhouse dining if required. Bed was comfortable and the view of the mountains was fabntastic. Owners (Joan & Wayne) were very helpful in places to see and all the good eating places. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Queenstown. Great time was had.

As soon as we arrived we knew we had made the right choice. We were met by Wayne a (larger than life person) and Jan. Our apartment looked out towards the mountain and the gondola. The apartment was well furnished and equipped with laundry facilities,and well laid out, and very comfortable. Wayne and Jan were helpful in pointing out to us places in the town where we could eat, drink etc. If we had the chance to go back to Queenstown, we would certainly book into The Whistler. The ratings asked for comment on Restaurant and Room Service. The rooms at Whistler are apartments, and there is no restaurant, not that we would really expect one, so by leaving it blank hope that the score is not downgraded. Again, Room Service, Wayne pops into the apartments everyday to take out the rubbish so again 5. By the way, the WiFi is free.

Easy walking distance from town centre. Very friendly service throughout our stay. Clean, tidy and comfortable accommodation. We travelled with a baby and were given a cot and high chair at no extra cost. Will definitely stay again next time.

We stayed here for three nights during our tour of the south island and had room 18 which we had read bad reviews about the noise from the property behind.Two out of the three night we were there we were kept awake till the early hours from parties at the same property.We found that the rooms were well laid out but had problems with the kettle and also quite a considerable crack in the roof which we thought could collapse at any time.As we had stayed at quite a few self contained places during our trip we were quite shocked that they don't service your room and replace things like coffee and tea.We were very disappointed about the fact that they don't offer free wifi as this was the only place on our three week trip that didn't.On the plus side the views are amazing.

Room Tip: Avoid room 18.If you get this room ask for it to be changed

Wayne T, Manager at Whistler, The Chancellor - Queenstown, responded to this reviewResponded 23 April 2014

Thanks for your review – one of the advantages of staying with us is that we, as Managers, live on site. This means we can monitor and hear what is going on around the area and detect and deal with any possible problems. Since reminding the neighbours of their Body Corp Rules about the noise last November there have been no further issues.
Being very “hands on” Managers we take guests to their apartments and explain what to expect regarding servicing etc during their stay. If we failed to mention that you could have the option of either a service without beds made etc or have a more comprehensive service then we apologise if this was not explained.
Regarding Wifi, we do offer Free Wifi available in every apartment for two devices.
From time to time an appliance reaches the end of its useful life and kettles (or electric jugs as we call them) would be replaced with spares we have on hand if any guests let us know.
We think that we offer quite a good range and quantity of teas and coffees and if guests require more, again we would be happy to oblige.
Regards Wayne and Jan
Managers

We loved our stay at the Whistler, and agree with other reviewers. Wayne and Jan were extremely helpful and the apartment was very spacious, clean and well equipped. Free laundry facilities, parking and Wi-Fi always welcome. And Queenstown was a great place to do some walking and relaxing, whatever age you are. We walked up to the top of the gondola, and on towards the Bear track. Stunning views of the Remarkables, and the lake. And a stroll to the park after supper was delightful. Wished we could have stayed longer and would definitely stay at The Whistler again. Excellent value and very comfortable bed.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 21, and the bedroom was at the rear of the property and very quiet. It had a singl...
