My husband and I stayed one night in the One Bedroom Suite which was very spacious. It has a living room, fully equipped kitchen, dining room, bedroom, laundry area and bathroom. The living and dining room has an excellent view of the Lake Wakatipu and the mountains. There is a direct path from the suite which leads to the lakeside...

This was an excellent hotel. Right on the lake with spectacular views from your room/patio. The room was great -- large, modern, well equipped. This hotel is 3/4 mile from town which can be a big draw back for some. However, that 3/4 mile is a great walk along a good quality trail by the lake shore. I came to...

We arrived to find ourselves in the most beautiful room with a view to die for, small hiccup with water meant we had to move to another room but this was even better with views from bedroom and lounge. Facilities fantastic, service amazing and cleanliness unbeatable. Thank you for a wonderful stay,we would come again if ever back in Queenstown....

The units may vary so this reflects only the unit we stayed in which was located midway up the hillside, so not at top off the road, nor at the bottom near the lake. Could see the lake, but the view was partially obscured by the roof of the lower unit. These are really villas but we weren't really expecting...

Our free unlimited broadband internet service usually streams in at 30 megabits a second, which is fast for NZ! Our staff are always happy to assist guests having trouble hooking up, and this usually takes less than 20 seconds. Single bedroom Suites have ceilings just under 2.4 meters high and these Suites are entered via floor to ceiling sliding glass...

My partner and I are regular visitors to Queenstown usually flying in and staying at various apartments along Frankton Road. This was our first time at Villa De Lago and it will not be our last. On arrival we were warmly welcomed and shown to the apartment that we had booked on line. The view, while ok ,was a little...

We stayed here for a week over Easter. The location was great with a fantastic view. We loved walking into town everyday to eat and then back home again. The one bedroom apartment was spacious and we appreciated that they topped up washing powder, dishwasher powder etc everyday which is not the norm for apartments. I had done my research...

Great start to our holiday. Greeted on arrival and given all the information we needed. Warm, clean and luxurious right down to the heated bathroom floor. Amazing views of lakes and mountains. Great place to stay.

First of all, I want to talk about location. Frankly speaking, it's too far from the bus station. If you won't use the taxi or lent car, it will be very hard walking with your heavy carrier. But it can be forgotten, when you find the scenery in front of your room. It's very coooooool view. And the facilities are...

After having stayed in very budget accommodation for the preceding week in New Zealand, Villa Del Lago was a wonderful treat. Lovely fire, great kitchen facility, big comfy bed, spotlessly clean. Wonderful view from the villa. The weather was shocking while we were there leaving the option of borrowing one of the extensive range of DVDs a great past time.

Nice quiet location with amazing views right on the lake! Lovely 1/2 hour walk into the town centre or for those who don't like to walk can catch the water taxi at your door. The one bedroom apartment is super spacious & clean, comfortable bed, large fully equipped kitchen & a gorgeous fire place. Hotel provides guests with free wifi....
