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... More

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.
