On arrival first impression awesome- 3 bedrooms 3 levels,not what we expected but okay we thought we could work the beds out - turned out the 2 nd level that had 2 bedrooms did not have window stops so the 2 year old that would be in one room had a huge huge drop to the ground if he opened...

wonderful place for family holiday. spacious well appointed 3 bedroom apt with all that you would expect. Just really nice to have a place to come back to and relax after a day on the slopes. Shame the snow wasn't as good, hopefully better next year.

We found this place to be perfect for our family of 5 (mum, dad and 3 kids). 3 bedroom apartment was very well furnished and set up and had everything we needed for a great week at Queenstown. Happy to recommend.

This two bedroom apartment was clean, tasteful and comfortable, with a nice view of Lake Wakitipu from the open plan kitchen, living, dining room. Check-in is via an envelope with instructions, there were no staff around to answer questions or provide recommendations. The apartments are in an area that is largely residential, so it was quiet. The living spaces are...

The apartments are located on the edge of the town. Ours had a beautiful view of the lake. Office opening hours are very limited, but there was an envelope with the key waiting for us, so that was very easy. The apartment was spacious and comfortable, with a big and complete kitchen. Nice balcony with views. Also great to have...

Alta is just up the hill from town - a very convenient 5 minute drive into town but maybe not the best option if you plan on walking everywhere. We stayed in apartment 10 at the very end corner of the property and had an interesting view into several residential backyards (!) It was striking at first but the neighbours...

Hi Jimbo. Thank you for your review. We do apologise for not having your apartment ready at 2pm. As you may imagine, Christmas/New Years is an extremely busy time for our housekeeping staff and some of the apartments took longer to clean to ensure our high standard of cleanliness could be attained for the next set of guests. Thank yo...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Alta Apartments is nestled in the foothills of Queenstown in a quiet location on the town’s edge (approximately 10-15 mins walk downhill) and offers 11 self-contained 2- and 3-bedroom apartments, including two oversized studio suites. A great alternative to hotels, the apartments have everything you’d expect for a home away from home. The top level of our 2- and 3-bedroom apartments maximise stunning views of The Remarkables and Lake Wakatipu. Our apartments are specifically designed for those guests preferring a ‘self-catering’ experience with minimal disruption. Similar to booking a ‘holiday-home’, we don’t provide daily servicing but if pre-arranged, bedding can be changed for a daily fee and our 2- and 3-bedroom apartments feature laundries. Our manager is available in the office between 9am-midday daily to answer any queries or assist with anything regarding the apartments. There is also an after-hours mobile number to call when the office is unattended or in case of an emergency. ... more   less
