“Perfect location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013 via mobile

We stayed in unit 108 and other family members stayed in unit 101.

The rooms are good, spacious and clean if a little dated. 108 is not very sunny in fact it's quite dark, but 101 has a nice view of the mountain and gets heaps of afternoon sun.

The best thing about these apartments is the location. Just a short stroll from the centre of town means that no one had to drive anywhere and could nip back to the apartments easily.

Its a good value for money option in Queenstown.

The apartment was spacious. Great room for cooking your own dinners etc. Well heated. Clean. The best thing was the location. We walked into town and it was not even 1 minute. Starbucks and Cookie time nearby. Parking on site. Room service daily. Great view of the mountain looking at the Gondola and you could see the snow storms rolling over the mountains.

Overall a great experience.

Room Tip: Fab location would stay here again for that reason!

After exhaustive research into Queenstown accommodation for our snowboarding trip, we were very happy with our 9 nights at St James.

The two bedroom executive apartment (room 306) was on the top floor and had a balcony with a nice aspect of the town and mountains (not really of the lake), including the gondola. It was very pleasant having drinks out food on the balcony. However, I think that units backing onto the road on a lower floor may not have such a nice view.

Big kitchen, fully equipped and a nice eating and living area. Not the most luxurious of furnishings, but modern and clean. Both bathrooms had excellent heating, and the master bedroom's shower was exactly what we needed after a day on the slopes.

We went with St James primarily because of the location - right next to the central part of town and on the flat. Made it incredibly convenient to go out shopping, eating or drinking, and a leisurely 5-10 minute walk to the bus up to the slopes. You definitely do not need a car when staying here!

The windows must have been double glazed as we had no problems with keeping heat in and road noise out.

We will definitely stay again!

Cannot say a bad word about it. Location is perfect! Only a 2 second walk down the driveway and you're in town. Andy and Melanie were absolutely lovely hosts, helping us with dinner bookings and taxis to the airport. We stayed in an executive 3 bdr apartment with 5 people and it was fantastic. Heaps of space, heated tiles and towel racks, ample heating, great views, full kitchen facilities and we also had a washing machine and dryer. Quiet even though you're basically right in town. Absolutely could not fault this place and will be back there again for sure.

I would not recommend these apartments. The staff at reception were rude and never there. There was very little parking and no clarity on where we were allowed to park. The room had numerous signs warning of different fees that may be charged for leaving washing up cooking certain foods etc.., this made it very difficult to relax in the room. We booked on booking.com and it was stated that there was a flat screen tv and there wasn't and half of the channels didn't work. There was also intermittent hot water not enough for baths fro 2 people.

I would recommend going somewhere else as this isnt particularly good value and im sure most places would provide better service

during last easter weekends our friends came to visit from australia & asked if we can help finding them a place to stay. after a several investigations, a lot of people suggested us this place & it was the best decision ever! our friends really enjoyed their stay, mostly because the hosts (andy & melanie) are so nice & friendly & very helpful with my friends who's never been to queenstown before. the price was reasonably affordable even though it was on one of their busiest weekend, the room was so tidy & warm & the location! wow! so close to everywhere. My friends had the best times & i would definitely recommend this place to everyone who's planning to come to queenstown.
