Balmoral Lodge was a bit tricky to find from the street as the nav man we had was trying to take us past on the opposite side of the road. I think some additional signage would have fixed that. The owner greeted us on arrival and showed us through the accommodation. After some of the places we stayed in, this...

This place was sensational! We struggled to find the entrance (it's on the hill side of the street) but once we did- it was well worth the effort The owners were very warm and friendly. The bedrooms were well sized and very well appointed. The living area was comfortable! Should I return to Queenstown, I will also look to return...

We stayed at Balmoral Lodge for a week in December. Such a beautiful place to make your base. The room was well equipped,clean and well serviced and the owners attended to our every need. They were helpful and informative and they definitely gave us the kind of advice and guidance which added so much to our time in Queenstown. Amazing...

We were travelling with another couple and booked the two bedroom suite. The rooms were excellent and the living room/kitchen area was roomy with a great view of the lake/mountains/city. Outdoor seating in good weather would be a plus. Although you are very close to the heart of Queenstown, it is a hike up the hill, so I would recommend...

My stay here was awful. On my first night the mattress was so saggy my back hurt the next day. I woke at 8 am to the sound of the owners upstairs having a domestic. When I politely approached the owner about the noise and the bed I was treated very rudely. Rather than trying to help she became aggressive....

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon. We really enjoyed the homely feel to this place. The warm welcome we were given and the smell of freshly cooked food of a morning was great. The room was good - great view of Queenstown and the lake when it wasn't cloudy. Very clean rooms in a great location -...

This B&B is a fantastic one in Queenstown. The place is lovely, it was the first B&B purposely built as a B&B by its owners, who are the ones welcoming you and cooking your breakfast every morning. It was like visiting in someone's house. The room we got was super lovely, with a view and very well equipped, beds comfortable,...

“Though close to town this apartment is not somewhere I'd walk to/from unless you liked steep hill climbing. With a mix-aged group - there were five in our group - it was nice to have the youngest child sleeping close by in the living room while the adult kids had their own separate space. The bed in the living room was sooooo comfy but it did limit the living space for the family. Separate ensuite for the master suite was brilliant.”
