If you want to be right in town in Queenstown, this is the place to stay. Many of the apartments in town are on a hill and it'll be an effort climbing up a slope daily. Glebe, however, is right at the foot of a slope, so it's really 10 steps on a slope. It's really as convenient as you can get. We stayed in apartment 501 for 4 nights and we loved it. Glebe is unique in the sense that it's like a "home away from home". In our apartment, there were so many books and magazines. Whenever we were in the apartment, all my kids were reading something. We were reading national geographic, reader's digest etc etc. When we moved on to other apartments in NZ, we really missed the reading materials that we used in Glebe. Then there are the 3 dogs which kept my kids entertained. They wanted to play with the dogs before they left the apartment every morning and they would look for the dogs when they returned to the apartment everyday. If I visit Queenstown again, I would stay here again.

Room Tip: We liked 501. We didn't like 502.

These serviced apartments are situated on a hill and we were fortunate that our unit had a lovely view of the lake and mountains with easy access to the courtyard and barbecue. We stayed in a two bedroom unit that was so spacious. There were only two of us but two couples or a large family could easily be comfortable in the space. The kitchen was immaculate and huge and the living area and big balcony was very comfortable. We had everything we needed to prepare delicious dinners at home. I highly recommend utilizing the BarBque and experiencing the delicious varieties of meats and fresh produce that New Zealand has to offer.
The location is superb and only a five minute walk to the city center. Be prepared for a uphill stroll on the way home. The bathroom was beautiful and very large and it was great that a full laundry was included in the unit. The cozy robes and cuddly stuffed animal on the bed made for warm homey atmosphere. Highly recommended! The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: If a steep hill is a problem ask for a lower level unit closer to the Main Street. But the units hig...

We stayed 2 nights in the 4 bedroom apartments. Greeted by the friendly owner that gave a brief of the area and activities. Spacious hall, well maintained and clean rooms. We had home cooked food which my mother-in-law prepared from the well equipped kitchen. Great location, just walking distance to town centre and restaurant.

We stayed only one night alas, beautiful 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom apartment for 6 of us. Furniture and kitchen appliances were all in great condition, like new, nice to have a balcony overlooking the courtyard, with gondola hill above, probably quieter than overlooking the road with views towards the lake. Fabulous view of nearby mountain through kitchen window. Nice to have large glass sliding doors which could be opened right up to access balcony.
We were all very impressed and will definitely try and book again when next in .

Room Tip: Those with courtyard views possibly quieter than lake views

We stayed 2 nights at Glebe Apartments together with my 2 teenage kids. Loved the place - large airy rooms with a well stocked kitchen - also loved the toy dog in the bed room. Staff were also very friendly and helpful - gave us good recommendations for restaurants in Queenstown with wonderful food and great value for money. Besides that, also helped us with the location of the pickup for the Milford Sound tour we had booked. Great location and comfortable rooms for a family of 4 and more ...

We stayed here for 3 nights. On arrival we were greeted warmly and immediately upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the lake and courtyard :).
Awesome apartment, very comfortable with all the mod cons. A home away from home with everything provided for. We were travelling with elderly parents and I was on crutches, apartment easy to get around in, very spacious and disabled friendly!
Will definitely be back early next year for another visit
Thanks for making the trip comfortable and enjoyable.

Almost have nothing to pick on for this establishment. My friends and I stayed 3 nights here while in Queenstown. Location wise, this place is only a 2-3 minute walk away from the main town centre where the shops and eateries are located. Only minor point is that being located on a hill (which it can't be helped), the steep slope may prove to be a surprise for first-timers to this apt. Beautiful view overlooking Lake Wakatipu and Queenstown town central.

Facilities wise was fully adequate. Fully stocked kitchen with dishwashers, usual pots + pans and a wide assortment of crockery, including oven, microwave, toaster etc etc. The rooms were well equipped with heating for the cold weather, and linen and towels. Even the toilets looked spick and span. Enjoy sitting out on the balcony with a cuppa, overlooking the town centre.

Staff wise, we arrived late past 8pm that evening, and the reception who met us was slightly unfamiliar with the proceedings since there was no one else around to help with. Slightly irritated with the 100MB free wifi limit imposed per apartment - in my case, had 5 pax sharing the same allotment which made googling attractions slightly difficult. Even needed to remind reception to re-new the allotment each day.

But all in all, one of the best apartments out there in Queenstown.

Hi Alvin

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am pleased to here you enjoyed our apartments. I do agree there is a bit of an incline at the base of the hill, we are very lucky we are at the bottom of the hill. There many hotels and apartments at the top of the hill. We advertise the reception closes at 7.30pm and normally the guests will ring if they are going to be late. We can always arrange to stay later or for key pick up. If we are not contacted we will take it as a no show. I am normally on the premises every night. I did have a night away and we had a fill in night manager.

We offer 200mb free internet for the apartment and this is normally enough for a few days if you are just writing and receiving emails.

I am pleased you thought we were one of the best apartments and we would love to host you again soon. Hopefully by the time you come back we will be in the situation to offer free internet for the whole stay.

Have a very merry Christmas and a great New Year.

Kind regards

Anne Henley
