the view and location of the accommodation is amazing sadly the room was tired and needed maintenance and cleaning. Very little in the way of utensils in the kitchen - did not even supply a dish brush. Fridge had broken shelves and the base was broken so could only use the 2 small upper shelves. Had to ask for extra...

Wow! What a view, this alone was worth the price. Bedrooms well appointed. Flat screen TVs. No free wifi the only negative I can offer. The apartment is large with two bedrooms . Extra toilet upstairs, laundry etc. perfect for an extended stay. Highly recommended.

Stayed here with our two children. Our apartment was modern and clean. Thought it was overpriced compared to other places that we have stayed at in Queenstown. Had a couple of minor issues (latch on window broken and broken clothes drying rack (they did replace the rack)). It is the only NZ accommodation that we have stayed at that does...

We recently stayed here with our two young children. We stayed in unit 6 and it was warm, clean and always had hot water. Our room was serviced daily but I do agree with the previous reviews that unit 6 is in need of new couches and TV especially if they are marketing it as 4 star. I'm assuming that...

Had a lovely stay with friends. Was very close to the main area, with a lovely view of Lake Wakatipu. The apartment was warm and cosy, the electric blankets were a nice addition. The laundry was great with everything in working order.

Arrived at 3pm and place was run down and outdated and not worth the price. At 6 pm we attempted to shower our 3 young children but there was no hot water. What was worse manager thought we were tourists from overseas and tried to tell us that in NZ the water was not heated during the day so we...

Great location, super close to the "main drag". Amazing views from the bedroom/lounge!! Over looking lake wakatipu and the remarkables ski fields! Warm beds and showers. Washers and driers work well. Everything you need on holiday in one. Also - Not ridiculously expensive for its location!

pros: - good location; flat, short walk to centre of town; - spacious 2 bedroom apartment; plenty of room for all the ski gear; cons: - apartment 16 in poor condition. the description on the website of 4 star luxury is false and misleading. the apartments are in desperate need of renovation and general maintenance. ripped carpets, broken skirting boards,...

For those who are physically able this is a perfect location to base yourself in Queenstown. It has a very steep driveway so those who want to stay close to town so they can walk they would need to be quite fit. The view is stunning looking over the lake and the accommodation, though dated is comfortable enough for the...

ALASTAIR L, Owner at Lakefront Apartments, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to review the Lakefront Apartments, after your stay. As you've said, the apartments do offer fabulous views of the lake and mountains, and just a pleasant, 2 minute, lakeside stroll into the town centre. We do have options for those with any mobility issues, so please ask if you have any special requirements, when...

We stayed here for 2 nights during June(4 adults). The accommodation is well laid out and very nice. bathroom are a bit older in style but functional and clean! The view is spectacular and you can't ask for a better location the explore from. this was most likely the best accommodation during our NZ holiday.
