Villa del Lago is just the right fit for my wife and me -- great location a short walk away from town away from the rowdy late night backpacker areas, large, lovely rooms all with beautiful views of the lake, and great kitchen if you want to save money on food (we spent $26 on a burrito in town). For the price, there's no better place to stay in the area.
This is our second visit to Queenstown and, after staying at Villa del Lago in 2013, there was no question where we'd stay on the return trip. The owners have great restaurant and activity recommendations in the area -- in the summertime (the only season we've visited Q-town) there are an endless supply of great picnic spots, hikes, and other outdoor activities in the area, and they seem to know them all.
Suggest checking out the Boat Shed Cafe, a nice walk east from the hotel on the lakeside path, and play frisbee golf at the course inside Queenstown gardens -- one of the only free things you can do in the city (well, excluding the $5 disc rental charge).
