We stay here just before Christmas and it was a wonderful experience. The view was incredible and beautiful, with the sunset's mauve sunlight hitting the peaks as the lake cools to a dark blue. The hotel was comfortable and the facilities was very nice. The room was well situated for the outside view. Parking provided a little tricky, but it...

My husband and I stayed in unit 7 for six nights. It was a perfect base AND haven for our stay in Queenstown. The staff were friendly and the unit could not have been more perfect. After busy days of sightseeing, often we stayed in and just enjoyed the apartment with its cozy fireplace and movies that we borrowed from...

Our family of six rented a three bedroom. Spacious, clean apartments with such an amazing view. Staff was very friendly. We had no car, so it was a 25 minute walk into town or a quick taxi ride home. Would highly recommend.

Only had two nights here on our journey around New Zealand. This was very up market with great furnishings and all facilities. It all felt well maintained and clean. Even managed to get some washing and ironing done looking out over the lake. There was a nice gas fire to take the chill away and can imagine it to be...

Great apartment equiped with all you need: space, comfort, outside seating and amazing views over the lake. We particularly enjoyed sitting in front of the fireplace looking over the changing scenery outside. The location is a bit out of town - but easy accessible by walking or by bus / taxi, if you don't want to drive. Parking is a...

Thank you very much for your lovely review. All Villas and Suites have a free car park in an area closest to their apartment, but there is no 'designated' or numbered parking per se. The numbered parks are for neighbouring apartments that are not part of Villa del Lago so they are clearly distinguishable. We try and keep it as...

This was my second stay at Villa del Lago after having stayed at the property three years ago. This time, I returned with my partner and if anything it was even better than the first time. The apartment that we stayed in seemed to have been newly renovated (with a big curved-screen LCD TV), and there was more than ample...

Stunning views of the lake and The Remarkables that can be enjoyed from the patio, full kitchen, dining area, front room and bedroom of the extremely comfortable, immaculate, upscale suite complete with fireplace :) Loved the washer and dryer in the suite and the heated bathroom floor, too. Lovely path in front of the suites that could be used to...

My husband and I stayed at many nice hotels and motels on our visit to Australia, New Zealand, and Hawaii but this was my favorite. When we first got there I was a little worried because the parking lot was steep and we needed to descend a flight of stairs to get to our room. However, the moment we walked...

Our family of 5 booked a 3 bedroom villa for 3 nights. We stayed in villa #13. We arrived in Queenstown in the evening, after the front office had closed. They left a key for us, and we managed to find the villa with no problems. The villa is on 3 levels, with 1 bedroom at the entry level on...

Thanks for your lovely review. We do provide all guest amenities for free, including laundry powder, so there's no need to buy your own when you stay with us. Also we have a deal with Green Cabs - a flat rate of $12.00 to town instead of $15. We usually mention this when guest check in. We hope to see...
