Owners were very helpful during our stay giving info on the area and allowing us to leave the car overnight in their car park when we went on an overnight cruse on Milford Sound. If you want to cook a meal make sure you ask for a room with a cooker or hob.

We didn't realize that the bus dropped us off directly across the street from Earnslaw from the airport. The return was even easier, right out the front door! That's No. 1! Then, the room with the amazing view of the lake, plus the accommodations, added a second No. 1 reason to stay here. The bed is very comfortable, it's quiet,...

Had I known I would have booked a lakeview, as it was we were down on the car park level, around the corner looking at a fence. On the bright side this did make it easier to get our cases in and out of the car which was a bonus! We received a very warm welcome from the owner, the...

Thank you for the review. Yes the rooms with views do have lovely views but we do tell people that they can sit up at the reception level and admire it for free.The walk back from the CBD is up the hill, but sometimes it is a way of walking of after you have had your meal. Many thanks Lynley

Stayed one night in the "Lake Facing Studio". Spacious room with proper table in the middle of the room. Had access to a shared balcony with a gorgeous view of the Remarkables and Lake Wakatipu. Very friendly staff who waited for us when we were arriving half an hour after the reception closed (we called them when we were leaving...

Our room was very nice. Although we were unable to book a room with a lakeview, the manager/owner arranged for us to have the dining table for breakfast that overlooked the fabulous Lake Wakatipu. She also arranged a lovely 4 hr tour for us to view the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our walks into downtown (but not the uphill return)...

We stayed two nights at the Earnslaw Lodge during our time in Queenstown. The motel is located on a highway alongside other hotels and is within easy walking distance to town. We felt safe walking back and forth even after dark. Our room was neat and clean, but very basic - cinder block walls and no windows other than a...

Stayed here before we walked the Milford Track - easy walk to Queenstown CBD (you can cut through the park - even shorter to walk) - basic accommodation but clean, friendly owners, staff - bus from airport stops right outside - Studioi good value for $150 for couple - room faced the road but NO road noise.
