“Best place we stayed in New Zealand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

We only stayed here one night as we were just passing through Queenstown. The location was excellent, a bit of a walk to the city but a very short drive. The rooms were clean and spacious, the breakfast was satisfying and the owners were kind and helpful. The views from the Lakeview rooms were awesome, so we will stay in one of those next time! Great hotel, reasonable rate and friendly people. Would recommend to anyone

Room Tip: Make sure to get a lakeview room

Stayed here with my daughter and a few days later my with stayed here with our other daughter before meeting up with me at the end of the Milford track. Great location for Airport, Town and Lake. Staff friendly and very helpful. Rooms large, clean and quite. Short walk into Town centre either via park or footpath.

My wife and I stayed here for a night en route to Milford Sound last week.

We had the lakeview studio and the view was breathtaking :)
The room were clean and spacious and located within walking distance to town centre.

The owner were friendly and informative.
It was also the first time I checked in a hotel using an ipad :)
My only regret is that we stayed at this hotel for only 1 night

I now know why Earnslaw Lodge had a really good review on Trip Advisor !!

Did stay at Earnslaw lodge during our Queenstown visit. Room was clean and tidy with comfortable queen bed. We also booked cooked breakfast to have hassle free morning. Eggs, bacon, tomatoes etc. all cooked well. Once we are back in Queenstown we are definitely going back to Earnslaw. I do recommend this place to stay in.

We stayed three nights in a lake-facing studio and were overwhelmed by the view. The room was spacious and comfortable, but spartan. We expected this, as it was clear from the booking that little more than tea and coffee making facilities would be provided. However, Lynley and Phil were very accommodating in providing us with a microwave, crockery and cutlery when they became available. We were at Earnslaw Lodge for New Year's Eve. We were able to see the fireworks from the balcony, but without the fuss of going into town. We took advantage of the track along the shore of Lake Wakatipu to walk into town, and away from it. We would recommend staying at Earnslaw Lodge.

It's a long pending review from a trip with memories still fresh in our mind. We stayed in a studio room facing Wakatipu. And the view was something that we still relish to the fullest and often draws us to plan our next trip there. A 180 degree view of the majestic lake, the tranquil island in the middle and the Reamarkable range at the other side was really priceless. Location wise it's perfect as all the major tour operators can pick up/drop at the door step and it's a 8-10 min stroll to downtown area. However, we used to take a longer walk along the lake shore. Host and hotel staffs were quite friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious. And as per amenities, we did not have any thing to complain during our 3 night stay.

Room Tip: Book lake view room - worth the extra money.
