Wow! All I can say is that this is a fabulous place to stay. We had an apartment right down on the lake - amazing view of the lake and Remarkables Mountain Range. We had a very nice bedroom with queen bed, bath, sitting room and kitchen. TV's in both sitting room and bedroom. There is a gas fireplace in...

We stayed 3 nights here and it was very comfortable, clean and relaxing. The views are amazing and the facilities are great. Negatives were that it is a fair way from the town centre (25 min walk), the wifi is not reliable and we had to lift heavy luggage up and down flights of stairs as there is no lift....

My mum and I stayed at Villa del Lago for 3 nights during our one-week road trip in the south island of New Zealand for her birthday. It was a fantastic choice and I'm so glad that accommodation was available as the bookings run hot here. I have stayed in 5-star motels in Queenstown many times on business and pleasure...

Thanks to the wonderful gas fire we were warm and cosy. This is a great place to stay. All the little extras. All the toiletries replaced every day and the washing powder etc. Nice not to have to go out and buy dishwasher powder and washing powder. The view is stunning and the walk into the centre of Queenstown is...

Not just the view that was inspiring. We absolutely loved this place. From the moment we walked into reception there was a welcome smile. We were shown to our Villa. Walking down three flights of stairs, but don't be put off. If you cannot do the stairs phone the Villa when booking and mention if you have any contraindication condition...

We were in Queenstown to get married. The staff were warm, friendly and very helpful. We booked the apartments via the internet some months prior to the event. On one of our planning trips to Queenstown we called in on the off chance and staff took time to show us around the facilities and welcome us. We knew it was...

It really is special to be part of such an important event in a family. We love having brides and grooms and families and friends stay here together. We are delighted that your family had such a good time. What a great idea to use the water taxis to take everyone from here to Walter Peak! Thanks again, and come...

You really couldn't get any closer to the water without being in it. They even have their own pier for so that water taxis can be used! Terrific apartment, as I said, overlooking the lake. Fully furnished with absolutely all conveniences AND an individual laundry facility. No 11 had a twin & a double. The double being en-suite. All facilities...
