“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Everything was perfect! The rooms were very clean and the views were amazing! All the staff that I encountered were polite and on to it. There was nothing to complain about my trip to the Oaks. I will definitely be returning and sending anyone over who asks where the best accommodation is in Queentoswn!

Stayed April 2014

This is a fabulous location if you have a lake view apartment. The lake is at your feet, and the views are superb. This is our go to place when we are tired and in need of rejuvenation. The apartment is well equipped, the bathrooms good and the beds comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view.

Modern and clean!
The good points we got a 2 room suite that had a very large living space and just breath taking views of the lake. Service was nice enough and the rooms were clean and modern. Location close drive into town.
Also if you plan on cooking in the suite it had a massive kitchen and dinning area.
Bad points parking is very bad in peak times just not enough spots for the number of guests. Beds are just horrid so hard just like the ones we found in Asia and very springy . Our room was hard to find and defiantly not good if you are unfit or disabled. But it was worth the inconvenience for the view.
Over all for the deal we got I was happy with my stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the lake

Kia Ora and thank you for your recent review of Oaks Shores!
I am glad you enjoyed the views and the kitchen that the apartments offer during your stay! It is great to hear that you enjoyed the space in the rooms and the facilities of the apartment.
Unfortunately, at peak times of the year there is a large influx of additional cars to Queenstown, as people use one or more vehicles to enjoy the beautiful scenery of New Zealand during summer. This does mean that our usually-ample free of charge car park is filled up much more quickly.
Once again, thank you for your review and we hope to see you back in Queenstown soon!

Kindest regards,

Love love loved this hotel! We had a 1 bedroom Lakeview apartment, on a beautiful spot right on the lake. The room itself was spacious, clean and modern and we loved the fireplace. The view on the balcony and from the floor to ceiling windows was absolutely stunning. The staff were very friendly and the shuttle bus was very accommodating as well as all the drivers we had they loved a good chat. Couldn't recommend this place more if you're looking for a getaway that's a little bit out of the main town but only a 30min walk or a free shuttle bus ride.
Thanks for a beautiful stay.

Uninterrupted views of 'The Remarkables' from the entire unit. Stunning !!!!
Just to sit on the balcony and watch the ever changing scenery in front of you was fantastic !!!!
Beautiful kitchen, adequate bathroom, although shower was over bath.
Laundry cupboard with full size washer and dryer was very much appreciated after a journey.
Access to car park was a little steep.
Walkway at the lakes edge, Short walk around the lake into Queenstown ..
Great stay, would stay again.

The views from our balcony justified paying a little extra than other motels. The underground car parking and a massive suite including a personal laundry room made this location the best stay throughout our month trip around NZ.
Would not hesitate to re-book.

Stayed two night in a studio hotel room, while room wasn't huge it was quite acceptable. Some of the hotel rooms are actually a third bedroom from the apartments they just lock the doors off. We looked at two hotel rooms, one quite dark the only natural light was from a door leading onto a small balcony with views wedged between two apartments, the second was on the end of the hotel more windows but not much of a view. We brought off Wotif on a mystery deal and only paid $112 for each night which was a bargain. I was very worried when the mystery deal was revealed after reading some of the previous feedback but from what we saw it is unwarranted. Property is steep on the banks of lake but parking is fine and the lifts take you up to your room, we ate in restaurant one night food very good and fantastic views from restaurant. Shuttle into Queenstown, staff very friendly, would stay again and recommend

Room Tip: Check out Wotif for a mystery deal - you may get a bargain like we did
