We stayed in a one bedroom apartment with great views of down town Queenstown, the lake and the mountains. Although not spacious the apartment has modern fittings and all the appliances for a comfortable stay. There's lots of off street parking. The short walk to and from town is a small price to pay for the peace and quiet.

We booked a one bedroom apartment with great views out over Lake Wakatipu and across to the Remarkables. Central location means that downtown is only 10 minutes walk away and about the same to the base of the Gondola. The apartment was spacious, well appointed, nice furnishings and quiet too. Parking for our large 4x4 was easy to access. We...

Highview apartments is in a great location around a ten minute walk into Queenstown.I stayed in a studio room which was perfect for me as i was travelling alone.There was no view from the room but this didn't matter, as you only had to step outside when going for a walk to get the fantastic lake and mountain views.

We spent one night in a high standard Studio Apartment followed by eight nights in one of the larger Apartments with the lake and mountain view. The mountains are the Remarkables and so is Highview. The relaxed style of Manager Julie added to the whole experience. There is no need to look further than Highview for accommodation.

Very nice accommodations and only a ten minute walk to town. However if you have issues walking uphill I would suggest you stay elsewhere. Very nice people and clean rooms. They even have a serviceable work-out room

Thank you for taking time to write a review, can I just point out that we do have free off street parking for those self driving and it is also a cheap ($7 - $15) taxi ride from town back up to the apartments, being on a hill we do get to offer amazing views but the hill climb is...

The views are so amazing you won't want to leave your apartment. These apartments are so spacious and modern and a brisk walk to downtown Queenstown. It is on a hill though so if you have mobility issues, make sure you take the bus

No lake view as we were in studio apartment,all at the back with a car park view. Very clean, good beds, small, nice bathroom. Could not believe there was no sink in the 'so-called' kitchenette. So the only way you could wash up pots was to take a plastic bowl into the bathroom, fill it from the bathroom sink, balance...

In all our advertising including on third party websites and booking engines we endeavour to point out that the studios do not have views, to the point of naming the other type of rooms Lake View rooms, we also usually send out letters...

Gorgeous view from a "1 Br lake view suite." Balcony overlooking Queenstown harbour and lake. Very modern, clean and comfortable. Full kitchen and gas fireplace. 2 sofas, dining room table for 4. Washing machine in apt suite as well. Too nice to leave for dinner out- excellent lamb meal from Pedro's Lamb delivered instead. Would highly recommend this apartment complex....

We arrived at Highview Apts having one night left in our campervan but with no reservation thereafter and really struggling to find somewhere as Queenstown was so busy and accommodation hard to find. On arrival Jenny looked after us right away and was very understanding as to our situation too complicated to explain. She booked us in for two nights...
