We recently stayed here in a one bedroom apartment for 4 nights and wished it had been longer. The two key selling points for us were the views of the lake and the mountains plus the fireplace. Especially in the winter this just set the perfect ambience for an amazing holiday. It is a little bit out of town (around a 25 minute walk or a $12-$15 cab ride), but we appreciated being removed from the noise of Queenstown at night and with good weather the walk is very enjoyable with great views along the way. This is something to consider however if you think you will be frequently going back and forth to town, but for us we only went once a day.The extra money we spent on these apartments was more than made up for with the money we saved on food. Eating out in Queenstown can be quite expensive and with such a great view we found it very enjoyable and easy to cook breakfast and eat some simple dinners with wine in the apartment. After the first night we had a couple minor issues in the apartment, which the staff was very quick to fix (and half of which turned out to be based on our own user error). The staff was also very helpful in pre-booking some of our activities and they do not charge extra for this service. When you show up they have the vouchers ready and waiting for you and then just add the charges to your room charge. If we ever have the chance to return to Queenstown, then I would stay here again for sure.
