“Clean, comfortable & a short stroll to town centre”
Reviewed 17 July 2012 via mobile

I have stayed at The Garden Court several times and am always impressed by the cleanliness of thru place.

It may not be a 5 star hotel but it is always clean, well maintained and good great amenities provided.

A lot of the rooms have a couple of steps up or down so if you face any accessibility challenges it might may to mention this when you book.

They have modern heating in the rooms and warmth is never an issue.

The rooms are well appointed with plenty of room for ski gear & luggage.

I stayed in a standard studio suite aka a normal hotel room with a great newly refurbished bathroom and shower that rocked.

A favourite with me a choice of trim or regular fresh milk for in room beverage making facilities is offered.

Towels & linen are clean and plump and I always leave this place thinking I have received exceptional value for money.

It is a five minute stroll to bars and restaurants and on the right side of town for hitting the slopes.

Above all the consistency & quality of service is impressive in a town where hospitality is characterised by those travelling themselves.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We really appreciate the feedback!!
Our Standard Studios are great value for money... while they have no view and are road facing... they have everything you need for a comfy stay.
We are loving the brand new bathrooms and we have had hush glass installed now, so they are a great low cost way to enjoy Queenstown.
Take Care and we look forward to welcoming you back to Garden Court.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Garden Court on a ski trip to Queenstown for a week at the beginning of July. All of the staff at reception were very helpful upon arrival and the helpfulness carried on throughout the trip as they were very knowledgeable about the area.
The room itself (Standard Studio) was so clean and modern with all the amenities needed. We had Queen Bed, TV, Ironing board, fold up clothes line (which was very handy to air things out at night), kitchen including microwave, dishwasher, toaster, kettle, two hot plate - stove top and all cooking utensils you could possibly think! The cleaning staff that came in each day were exceptional and coming home to a clean room after hitting the mountain was wonderful!
Overall Garden Court was amazing, the only negative thing would have to be the walk back up the hill from the town but being situated only 20metres from Lake Wakatipu, it's worth it!!!

Hello Josh... we love your feedback!!
Like you we think the fold up clothes line in the room is a very handy idea :)
As for the walk up the hill... if you think about it positively, it's a fantastic way to work off all the "Ferg Burgers" and "good times" that are compulsory when you come to Queenstown!! :)

Take Care.

Rooms Clean and tidy. However wifi very pricey at $20 for 24 hours. Staff not the friendliest in Queenstown. Agreement made to have late checkout at 10:30am, however dead on 10am, someone knocked on the door asking if we were leaving, followed by a phone call at 10:15am asking the same.

I am so sorry to hear that you found our staff less than friendly when you stayed with us... I can assure you that this is not the norm, that your comments have been taken on board, and that we promise we will try to be better!!
I can give you happy news in regards to the Wifi here at Garden Court... we have taken your comments (and others) on board and we now offer the first 24hour access card for FREE!!! and any subsequent cards at $1 each... a massive improvement I'm sure you will agree!!!

Take Care and Thanks so much again for your comments.

We stayed in the 2 x 2 bedroom apartments with our 3 adult kids and their partners for two nights over Queen's birthday weekend. We had read on trip advisor that the rooms were a little tired but were pleasantly surprised at the apartments. These apartments were very clean, very well equipped and quite smart. They are a short walk to the town centre. These apartments were excellent value. We had found it difficult to find enough room for a group of 8. The staff were very friendly and helpful, cleaning staff efficient and unobtrusive. Highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Can only recommend two bedroom apartments - very quiet, clean and s,art

Is always nice to read that guests are "pleasantly surprised" with our rooms :)

Since the "tired" reviews, we have had the apartments re carpeted, all the wooden furnishings have been stripped back and re finished, a fresh coat of paint on the walls and lovely new flat screen TV's... the only thing tired in the rooms now are our guests after a busy day enjoying Queenstown :)

We stayed 4 nights in a 1 bedroom balcony apartment. It was spacious, clean, modern & had amazing views! The staff checked us in quickly & were friendly. We had everything we needed to explore this amazing town. We would definately stay here again.
About a 5 min walk into town- my mum (in her 50's) found the steep hill a bit hard.
The only small negative was the stairs leading up to your room- it was a little difficult to get our heavy bags to our room :)
Can not wait to return to Queenstown! So much to see & do.
Would highly recommend- Onsen hot pools, Dart Stables Horse Ride Glenorchy, Millbrook Day Spa, Sky Gondala/Luge & Southern Discovery Cruises.

Room Tip: Balcony apartments have more privacy & better views

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for 8 days. The apartment was a little 'tired' in places with chips on the cupboards and furniture and the kitchen cupboard was in need of repair. However, I think the price we paid reflected this and it was very reasonable. The proximity to town and lake was fabulous. Hiring bikes from them was cheaper than in town and the staff were so helpful, especially the Irish lady who was very friendly and knowledgable. The apartments were clean and very functional and I would recommend them to anyone wishing to stay there. I was disappointed in the first apartment given to us as it did not have the great lake views I had hoped for, but we asked to be moved and were allocated the end apartment (217) nearest the lake which was better and offered more privacy. Thanks to the staff for a lovely stay.

We enjoyed our first 2 night stay in a 1 bed apartment so much that we returned a week later.Second apartment was in the same upstairs row and had slightly better view.Located on town side of block.
Lovely walk to town by lake edge or through the park.
Great to have own laundry facilities and dishwasher.Good supermarket out of town by the airport.Had an amazing view as you left of the Remarkables.

Room Tip: We found apartment upstairs but the town side of block had a slightly better view
