Stay here. Walking distance from downtown Queenstown along the lake. 7 star views on he lake and mountains. Rooms are spectacular and Mel was very easy going and pleasant to deal with. I have stayed in larger hotels in town and this place is much better. Kitchen, in-room laundry, living room area and heated floors in he bathroom.

My partner and I stayed here the first two nights of our one month trip to New Zealand and I recommend this accommodation enthusiastically. We arrived a few hours before official check-in time and understood that it was not guaranteed that our room be ready; however, it was ready and we were able to settle in right away. The view...

Thanks for your detailed review. The kitchen is not strictly speaking a kitchenette. It has a full-size four burner gas hob, pull out extractor fan, large sink, small oven, large fridge with freezer, a pantry with microwave and cupboards full of all the kitchen appliances and utensils you may need for cooking - including toaster, kettle, full set of pots...

Happy to pay the high rates here as the views and rooms are absolutely worth it however found it a little rude when we were asked to pay for all 4 nights up front within 5 mins of arriving (first place in NZ that did that and I found the presumption we may not pay on departure a bit rude)....

Thank you for your review. We are so sorry that you felt we did not give you due respect while you were at Villa del Lago. Unfortunately, because of a recent number of incidents where people have left without paying, we have had to change our policy to pay on arrival instead of pay on departure. While most of our...

Our apartment was located at the lowest level overlooking the lake. The villa was spacious for the 2 of us and having a laundry was such a positive given we had been traveling for weeks. We loved the walk into Queenstown every day - less than a half hour and it was great to walk along the lakefront - always...

Thank you for your review. We are delighted you had a wonderful stay. For clarity, our one bedroom Suites at the lowest level by the lake are down three flights of stairs from the car park. All of our 2 and 3 bedroom Villas have walk in access from the car parking areas. If you require assistance getting heavy luggage...

We had an incredible stay. Accommodation was beautiful and so well set up for a family. Was great also to be able to use washing machine in our own unit. Incredible, and we were sad to leave. We'll be back.

It's really handy for getting the laundry done if you're travelling around NZ. Views of the lake are lovely. Otherwise, not much to say - rooms are basic. My bed was not comfortable. It's a long walk into queenstown.

Thank you for your review. The walk into town takes 25 minutes, it's a lovely walk along the lake on the Queenstown trail. All of the beds in the one bedroom Suites were replaced with new beds a year ago. They are high quality beds designed for the hotel industry and are fitted with 1000gsm luxury toppers. Most of our...

Look no further then the Villa Del Lago if you are going to stay in Queenstown. Beautiful setting where every room has a view of the lake. Each suite has been well thought out and the furnishings are beautiful. They have done everything right here and you won;t be disappointed.
