Stayed here before we walked the Milford Track - easy walk to Queenstown CBD (you can cut through the park - even shorter to walk) - basic accommodation but clean, friendly owners, staff - bus from airport stops right outside - Studioi good value for $150 for couple - room faced the road but NO road noise.

We needed last minute accommodation with Queenstown full. The owner manager offered the room kept aside for bus driver at a cheap rate. The room was great super king bed, very clean and quiet. I'm asking for the bus drivers room in the future. The owner/ manager was fantastic, friendly helpful. Breakfast was great.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Earnslaw Lodge. The people are super friendly and made me feel very welcome. It's only a short walk into Queenstown Village and has the most amazing views over the lake. I'll definatley be back.

We picked the Earnslaw Lodge as our Queenstown base for both the start and end of our South Island road trip. The accommodation is mid-price and mid-quality but perfectly adequate (everything is there, but it is a little dated and tired in places). We had a front room without lake-view for 1 night and once the traffic slowed down in...

Nice, homey facility a walkable 1 k outside heart of Queenstown. Clean, comfortable. As with many lodging places in NZ, no a/c and no screens on windows, doors. My room didn't overlook beautiful lake (faced the main road, though I found balcony off office and on floor above were available to all guests for lake-gazing)), but was only $107 US...

Thank you for taking the time to post about your stay at the motel. Not all rooms have views so we always tell people that there is area to sit and admire the view. Hope the rest of your holiday was enjoyable.

Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Delicious $10 breakfast was great value for money. Our room was clean with a comfortable bed & let's not forget the billion dollar view. Close to town with bus stops close by too.

A big selling point of this motel is the amazing view to be gained if you have a room facing the lake. The place is situated on a main road but is just a 10min walk into town (15mins to the wharf). We did have a lake view room and got no noise from the traffic. The owners were very...

The big selling point is the dramatic views fro the lake facing studios. The walk is an easy walk into the CBD. The staff are only to happy to help out where they can. The shared balcony are fire escapes so we cant have private for each room. Hope that you had a safe journey home.

We stayed one night at the Earnslaw Lodge and there were 5 of us in the one room. Room was comfortable, and well set out, and beds were comfortable. Easy walk into town for food etc. The views (if you have a room on the lake side) were impressive as we could see right down the lake.

Owners are great, clean tidy and warm room. I would recommend to stay here, facilities for coffee etc excellent, as are the views. It's quiet too even though it's on the main road. Only a 10 min walk to town or $8 in a cab.

Thanks for the comments. The main road into Queenstown is a busy one. The walk into the CBD can take 10 minutes or 20 minutes if you walk around the lake. Thanks Lynley
