I do not use the Luxury label very often. We stayed in 7 other hotels in New Zealand before coming to Villa Del Lago and they were all nice "Mid-Range" places. Ideal for our family on a whirlwind tour. Villa Del Lago was Luxury. Clean and comfortable with an absolutely epic view from multiple balconies. We paid more for this...

Oh how wonderful! Many thanks for your lovely review. We try not to use the 'luxury' label either, but are so pleased that everything met your expectations and you felt lavished with a little 'luxury'. Please do come back again! Cheers

This is a fine hotel; friends and I was in room #3, a triplex with 3 bedrooms; full kitchen - stove, oven, microwave, automatic dishwasher, washer & dryer. The Pak-N-Save was about 5 kilometers near the airport where we shopped for our breakfasts, lunches and dinners. The room provided complimentary instant coffee and tea & bathroom toiletries. My bedroom had...

Thank you very much for your wonderful review. For clarity, our fires are gas powered and have real flame and logs in the fire box. They are on a thermostat so they come on to heat up the apartment up to the temperature set on the thermostat. Please do come and stay again some day! Cheers

The views are truly breathtaking. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They've thought of everything that you'll need in the rooms and kitchens. Big lounges with new TVs that you'll never need with this view. Staying here is definitely worth it.

Thank you! Come back again in winter, the views are different when they are covered in snow. Cheers

My husband and I spent 1 week of our honeymoon in a one bedroom villa, and absolutely loved it! The lake views are pristine, and being a short way outside of downtown meant a quiet, serene location for our stay. Being fairly active, we very much enjoyed the beautiful stroll into town along the lakeside path. The staff we interacted...

We stayed in a one bedroom suite, No. 9, which had the bedroom at the rear but this had no natural light apart from the doors to the adjoining lounge, which had large patio doors. The bathroom was quite dated with a shower over a bath and just basic white tiles but the kitchen was well equipped and had a...

The views of the Remarkables is amazing and the apartment was comfortable and clean, but the service is what I appreciated the most. The staff made sure our excursions were organized according to the weather and all went off without a hitch. I highly recommend that you let them handle your plans during your visit to Queenstown!

Thank you for your lovely review. We are so pleased everything went well for you. We are always happy to help make appropriate suggestions and arrange excursions. Our prices and deals are the same as those offered downtown and online - but we are better at forecasting the weather! Cheers

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.

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.
