Our short Villa Del Lago stay was highly memorable. Charlotte and Nick are lovely people and gracious hosts. They have extensive knowledge of Queenstown and environs, able to advise on all your sightseeing needs. If you are up for the scenic, twenty minute lake walk into town, the location is ideal. Pedestrians and bike riders share the track, so you...

What a lovely place. I never had such a warm welcome. This is how guest should be welcomed in every hotel. The view from the apartment was spectaculair! The apartments provide everything you need. It is a bit further from the centre, but you can easily go there by bike (which you can hire at the reception for a small...

We were here for 4 days and wish we could have stayed longer. Our apartment was on the lower level and provided an excellent view of the lake and mountains. It was equipped with everything you need in the kitchen and the rooms were in excellent condition. The gas log fireplace took the chill off the room in the evening...

We stayed here in Queenstown for 3 nights and it was superb. Except for a few housekeeping slips. - When we checked in, the toilet downstairs was not flushed and we called the front desk to feedback to her on it. She sent the helper around to check on this. The fridge also had leftover yoghurt and beer from the...

Thank you for your review. We are very sorry for those housekeeping glitches and will certainly look into why that happened. We do aim to ensure that all our apartments are spotlessly clean when you check in. Kind regards.

We had booked a 2 night stay here as part of our tour around the South Island of New Zealand and I was a bit concerned as it was slightly more expensive than we had paid for other apartments, however it was well worth it. Our first apartment was on the lowest level but had a great view of the...

This is our second review of Villa del Lago - the last was a couple of years ago when we first stayed. It was as good as we had remembered and compared to our earlier photos was even better having been upgraded a bit. Most noticeable was the lovely new gas log fires (although with the amazing weather we barely...

Perfect for your Queenstown area stay. Our apartment had everything we could have possibly needed to feel right at home. Spotlessly clean with modern furnishings. Good bathroom toiletries, and all you need to cook a full meal. Spectacular vistas over the lake and mountains. Very friendly hosts, who will advise on day trips, restaurants, taxis and the weather! They will...
