We loved this accommodation. Lucky to have 2 nights in stone house and 2 nights in accommodation right next door. Most comfortable cosy beds ever!! Warm and toasty house, everything you could want to cook a meal. Close to town, easy walk. Definitely recommend, and will be back ourselves no doubt. Spa was great as well in the rain.

We stayed here twice: first in the Weird apartment and then in one on street level with 2 bedrooms. Both were very good, no doubt but the Weird apartment has my preference. It is very beautifully designed, light, good view, private. The venue has a hot tub, which is nice after a long hike. These are fully equipped apartments.

Spent a week in the one bed apartment at this lovely accommodation. Very spacious and comfortable with a very big bed. Well appointed in a quiet area of what is a busy town. Private parking was much appreciated here. Bit of a steep hill down to the centre but worth the effort coming back to get a glass of wine...

A fantastic find in Queenstown. This property ticked all the boxes for our family of four. Location is brilliant, a short walk up a hill behind town. The hill felt pretty steep the first day, but each time we climbed up it felt shorter and easier. Beds were super comfortable and apartment was beautifully furnished and toasty warm. We were...

Lovely comfortable apartment close to the centre of Queenstown. Lots of space with modern cooking facilities and comfortable furnishings. Huuuge bed! Laundry facilities are available here. Only drawback was the climb back up the very, very steep hill after a few beers.

Thanks so much for your review of your apartment at the Historic Stone House. We are glad you enjoyed it and the huge bed. We can imagine the mountaineering qualities Ballarat Street takes on after a few beers, but glad it did not affect your stay too much. All the best

We stayed in the Alley Apartment, which had two bedrooms, each with King beds, a cosy lounge, seperate shower room and a small kitchen with fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster and two ring hot plate.
