“Amazing value”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

Still can't quite believe we found a place with such an incredible view for the price you pay for Turner Heights. Take a look at their website - the photos you see there are exactly what you will see from the window. The apartments are extremely well equipped and comfortable, although not especially 'chic' (not that that was important to us). As other reviewers have mentioned, the hill is really steep, but it is pretty short so not too arduous. And if you want that kind of view you really need to be up the hillside. Management and staff are all friendly and efficient, and you're a five minute walk from everything you need. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

We stayed at Turner Heights for 4 nights, 2 in the 1 bed apartment and 2 in the 2 bed town house. The location was excellent, very central and great views of the mountains and lake. Yes, it is up a steep hill but you're in the mountains so you kind of expect it and we managed to push a buggy up it on a number of occasions. The managers are excellent, and really helpful and have a great booking service on site. The accommodation was perhaps a little dated but extremely clean, and had everything we needed. There are stairs which would be a worry with a 1 year old but we were provided with a stair gate, cot and highchair. Overall a great stay and really good value for such a central location.

Stayed here for 7 action packed days in queenstown. Great views, close walk to town, well equipped kitchen, helpful staff happy to book tours. Enjoyed a few days skiing, lots of room to store equipment and spa at the end of the day was great. Wi fi access an extra charge. Would happily stay here again.

This is the second time we have stayed here and again we would definitely recommend Turner Heights Townhouses as fantastic value for money. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which had a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and a large windowed living area with the most spectacularly beautiful views of Lake Wakatipu. We also had a car space as well access to a heated spa and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Sure there's a steep hill to walk up from town, but if you are feeling puffed half way up, you can always stop, regain your breath, have a sip of water and admire the beautiful view!!! Otherwise, you can drive up. The decor is not plush or designer label, however, for our comfy townhouse we paid $952.00 Australian for seven nights which is great value.

Other than the steep hill to get home mentioned elsewhere we didn't need to use our car for several days - very close to city/harbour. Amazing views and very comfortable, especially for - us travelling as a family of six - two bedrooms and a fold out lounge. Would definitely stay again.

Queenstown is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen! Our apartment showcased the views from every window possible. We had a great stay: quiet, cozy, very clean and everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Even got fitter from the walk up Turner Street each evening after skiing all day! Thanks for a great stay.

My wife and I, along with some of her family (4 of us in total) stayed at Turner Heights for 3 nights from the 1st to the 3rd of September, in one of their 2 bedroom townhouses and we were all unanimous in saying that it was the best place we stayed at on our 20 night New Zealand holiday. From the moment you walk into the master bedroom or the lounge room, the views of the snow capped mountains and Lake Wakatipu and also the gondolas climbing up the hillside were spectacular. That view only got better as more snow fell over the days we were in Queenstown.

The configuration of the townhouse starts with the ground floor, which has the front door and a small area to dump your skiing gear. The 1st floor consists of the bathroom and toilet, the main bedroom with a queen bed and a balcony with a view of all of Queenstown and surrounds. A second bedroom with two single beds also occupies the 1st floor. The 2nd floor has the dining table and the lounge area, which has an even better (higher) view of Queenstown, and also a separate fully equipped kitchen, a dish washer, washing machine and clothes dryer. Out the 2nd floor back door is a small landing and a BBQ for the guests to use. There is also a supermarket a few minute's walk in either direction. Each town house also has it's own undercover carport which easily fit the large 4WD we hired.

The location of the townhouses are fantastic - less than a 5 minute walk to town (although it will take twice as long walking back because of the very steep street the townhouses are on), and the gondolas are only a 10-15 minute casual walk away. There were times when we found it easier to leave the car in the carport and just walk into town. But that return walk up 'that' hill sometimes made us regret not taking the car.

The beds and lounges were all comfy and the shower pressure was great. With 4 adults, we didn't have any problems with the hot water. The heater managed to keep all of the 2nd floor very warm with doors everywhere to keep the heat in/out. The staircases and landings were quite squeaky and would wake everyone up when you stepped on them. And if you are not a fan of stairs, then this may not be the place for you - especially with 'that' hill.

Like most places around NZ you can book your tours and organise tickets from the front office, but we found the information sometimes a little confusing and inconsistent. But there are dozens of tourist centres in town to help you out with that.

Turner Heights is a great self contained place to relax and enjoy everything in and around Queenstown. We hadn't planned on staying there; but with everything else booked up, we ended up paying a little extra and staying. The views itself was well worth it, throw in a great location, and a very comfortable place, the 2 bedroom townhouse is perfect for families (but not very young families) and small groups who are planning on staying for several days or more.
