“Luxury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Great start to our holiday. Greeted on arrival and given all the information we needed. Warm, clean and luxurious right down to the heated bathroom floor. Amazing views of lakes and mountains. Great place to stay.

First of all, I want to talk about location. Frankly speaking, it's too far from the bus station. If you won't use the taxi or lent car, it will be very hard walking with your heavy carrier. But it can be forgotten, when you find the scenery in front of your room. It's very coooooool view.
And the facilities are generally good. But some cases, especially TV, are too old. For example, the TV cannot show the movie from USB.
I think the major value of this hotel is the scenery. That advantage can cover any other disadvantage, even a bit expensive room rate.

After having stayed in very budget accommodation for the preceding week in New Zealand, Villa Del Lago was a wonderful treat. Lovely fire, great kitchen facility, big comfy bed, spotlessly clean. Wonderful view from the villa. The weather was shocking while we were there leaving the option of borrowing one of the extensive range of DVDs a great past time.

Nice quiet location with amazing views right on the lake! Lovely 1/2 hour walk into the town centre or for those who don't like to walk can catch the water taxi at your door. The one bedroom apartment is super spacious & clean, comfortable bed, large fully equipped kitchen & a gorgeous fire place. Hotel provides guests with free wifi. We would definitely stay at Villa Del Lago again!!

Not a gorgeous, yet comfortable and clean enough to stay long.
When you stay in Queenstown, i would recommend to stay at the lake-side, not in downtown.
Taking a casual walk along the lake is just in front of your balcony and heaps of stars are above your head when the sky is clear in the night!

Equipment in room is for long stays with kitchen and dining table, so it is good to stay for minimum 3 nights, which i could not...

Villa Del Lago came highly recommended when I was searching for hotels in Queenstown, and it didn't let me down. It was right on the lake, and a 15 minutes walk to the town center. The room was super comfortable. The fireplace was quite handy since we were there at the end of the April. Great value for the money, would love to stay there again.

Stunning views! Mini apartment - large kitchen lounge area, washer/dryer in room. Bed very comfortable and all very clean. Free wifi too with no restriction. One of the best places we've stayed in NZ. Five minute drive to town. 30 minute leisurely stroll along lake to town.
