i booked this condo because of the good reviews. however, no one mentioned about the 3% credit card charges and full payment needed to be paid 30 days before arrival. Also, there's 25% non-refundable deposit charge through credit card once you book the condo. I have booked other vacation rentals/motels for my 14-day trip and no other motels charge credit card surcharge or full payment in advance or non-refundable deposit. It's my mistake that I did not understand the full meaning and details on the payment terms and conditions before I book the condo. After I make the reservation, I immediately email the management office regarding all those charges I mentioned above.... it just too late. in my opinion, it is unfriendly to do business in this way.

The condos are all they are advertised to be. Excellent views of the ever changing lake and mountains and a great kitchen. A short walk into town although a little steep on the way back. Private and very comfortable with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms including a spa.

Views are lovely if you look past the backyards and roof tops of other condos in front, although don't be fooled as we were thinking these condos are on the lake. I assumed my family and I would walk along the lake most mornings and afternoons, although the ten minute walk to get there down the steep hill and then back up again made you think twice about doing this. Walk into town is about 15min, we would walk into have dinner although most times got taxi back, about $12. Parking your car is very difficult and tricky also. I found the washing machine and dryer being in the garage on the bottom level an inconvenience. Condos were very nice and clean, nothing flash though.

Lake ridge Condos was the perfect accommodation for our 2 families (7 people). 3 stories with the bottom veing the entry and garage combined laundry, middle level was 3 bedrooms and bathrooms ( 1 with a spa) and the top floor was the living areas and kitchen providing wonderful views to town centre on the left and mountains and lake to the font. Fully self contained with everything you need which is excellent for eating casual meals in after an exhausting day. However if you did want to eat out or do some shopping It is only a short stroll to the town centre. Condo was very modern and clean and underfloor heating kept us toastie warm

We stayed here for 3 nights during June 2011, on arrival I noticed we had been given a bunk bed for my two young children and our baby gates hadn't been put up yet but this was all resolved within a matter of minutes when we were given an alternative apartment with 2 single beds and the gates were installed on the stairs. The apartment itself was perfect, they really have thought of everything. It was a fairly easy walk into town, slightly harder on the way back up the hill.
We will definately be back, thank you!

We absolutely loved our stay at the Lake Ridge Condos and will definitely return there next time we go to Queenstown! The Condo itself was very clean, modern and warm (we loved the floor heating in the bathroom) and had plenty of space for our family of 5 adults to spread out and be comfortable. Our favourite thing was the view- and we were so pleased to see that they were exactly what we saw on the website! It was fantastic to wake up to that view every morning and to spend time on the balcony after our days out and about. Also, we thought we got a great deal and it was very affordable between the 5 of us! It was easy to access with a car and very close to the town center so a great location- the hill was a bit of a climb when walking- but when you have the views of the Remarkables at the top, you wouldn't change that for anything!
