I booked the Alta Apartments to stay in January 2017. The day that I booked it in August I discovered that I did not note their non cancellation policy. I tried to cancel but they refused even though this was 5 months prior to the date. I ultimately got an information email from Alta in mid December reviewing my stay....

We stayed 6 nights in apartment 10b, a one bedroom studio on the ground floor. We knew we weren't getting a good view, which was fine, however we were a bit disappointed with the apartment in general. It is very dark and has poor ventilation, the 'kitchenette' consists of a mini fridge, kettle and plates and bowls etc - no...

My son and I stayed here for 3 nights in apartment 11b, this apartment and 10b are both basement level so if you do want a view you are not going to get it from either of these two but the other apartments should provide a view of the Remarkables. The room was very clean and well presented of new...

On arrival first impression awesome- 3 bedrooms 3 levels,not what we expected but okay we thought we could work the beds out - turned out the 2 nd level that had 2 bedrooms did not have window stops so the 2 year old that would be in one room had a huge huge drop to the ground if he opened...

wonderful place for family holiday. spacious well appointed 3 bedroom apt with all that you would expect. Just really nice to have a place to come back to and relax after a day on the slopes. Shame the snow wasn't as good, hopefully better next year.

We found this place to be perfect for our family of 5 (mum, dad and 3 kids). 3 bedroom apartment was very well furnished and set up and had everything we needed for a great week at Queenstown. Happy to recommend.

This two bedroom apartment was clean, tasteful and comfortable, with a nice view of Lake Wakitipu from the open plan kitchen, living, dining room. Check-in is via an envelope with instructions, there were no staff around to answer questions or provide recommendations. The apartments are in an area that is largely residential, so it was quiet. The living spaces are...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Alta Apartments is nestled in the foothills of Queenstown in a quiet location on the town’s edge (approximately 10-15 mins walk downhill) and offers 11 self-contained 2- and 3-bedroom apartments, including two oversized studio suites. A great alternative to hotels, the apartments have everything you’d expect for a home away from home. The top level of our 2- and 3-bedroom apartments maximise stunning views of The Remarkables and Lake Wakatipu. Our apartments are specifically designed for those guests preferring a ‘self-catering’ experience with minimal disruption. Similar to booking a ‘holiday-home’, we don’t provide daily servicing but if pre-arranged, bedding can be changed for a daily fee and our 2- and 3-bedroom apartments feature laundries. Our manager is available in the office between 9am-midday daily to answer any queries or assist with anything regarding the apartments. There is also an after-hours mobile number to call when the office is unattended or in case of an emergency. ... more   less
