Great apartment with a view

The 2 bedder apartment that we had was great. The view from the living room is stunning. Nice and clean furnitures, central heating, fridge and kitchen goods. The only random moment that we had was the rooms were half cleaned. Most likely because we went out quite late in the afternoon.

Rooms extremely hot from Underfloor heating

Rooms were extremely hot. Underfloor heating turned up far to much. It was enough to wake you up in the middle of the night felling faint from the stifling heat. Even opening the balcony door made very little impact.

Nice room, lovely view

The room was very nice and very comfortable, and all the rooms seem to have stunning views. Staff not very knowledgeable about cycling (like how to get your bike out of the hotel without climbing stairs!) and no cycling maps available. Restaurant ok, but unless you're really exhausted its much better to go into town

Not Impressed - Stay Elsewhere

Stayed here for 3 nights in September. Was really looking forward to staying somewhere nice during our 12 day trip through the South Island. Was impressed with the size of the 2 bedroom apartment and amazing view but unfortunately the stench of rancid fat that was all through the range hood destroyed the experience. There was a think film of fat all over the kitchen, it was disgusting. I asked the front desk to do something about it which was a waste of time as they wiped an equally smelly dirty cloth over the kitchen which achieved nothing. Location wise it is really a bit far to stroll into town and the onsite restaurant is rather expensive for what you get. Ordered pizzas which I waited about 30 mins longer than what they told me. Layout of the complex is rather like a maze. Would not be returning here.

Not good

I had a studio "apartment" (without soap holders & microwave) Even though there was a toaster and cutlery. The person I was served by was very arrogant and his tone made me quite angry and I felt like he looked down on me. To go to our studio we had to go through the carpark, Walk across to another lift, catch a lift down (from levels 5 to 1). Also the "shared laundry" was for everyone who didn't have a one bedroom- was near the carpark in a little cupboard and there was only 2 dryers and 2 clothes washing machines. Also it didn't tell you how long it will take for a "quick/normal wash" so throughout the night we will be going there a few times (Note the distance from the room to the carpark, also one lady was using 2 washing machines at once) Also be careful when going to the gym- not only is it tiny but also difficult to navigate there.

Very disappointing

Of my two week holiday around the south island this place was planned to be a bit of a treat for a mid holiday break , staying somewhere nice. How wrong I was. Firstly the key to our 2 bedroom apartment didn't work. I tried both keys without success. Now this would not usually be a huge issue but as this place designed like a rabbit warren you need two lift rides with a packed lunch to get back there. The tone of the staff was I was doing something wrong as it worked on their computer, anyway he re-coded it and it did then work. After entering the apartment I had wished that I couldn't get on at all. There was the stench of rancid oil/fat from the kitchen that was through the entire apartment. It was disgusting. My fellow travellers had forbidden me to complain so we unpacked and appreciated the fantastic view. Even with the windows open the smell didn't go away. I had a look around the cooker and there was bubbling of rancid fat around the range hood . There was also greasy marks over most of the kitchen cupboards. I took a photo and showed reception on my way out. He apologized and organised a cleaner. When we returned it had attempted to be cleaned but the apartment still stunk. Really not impressed for what you pay to stay here. Although the apartment is large the bedrooms are really tiny. No where to put your suitcase and the bedrooms have no windows apart from on room that had a small window to the common hallway that only served to let in unwanted light and noise. The view is fantastic but the apartments are a bit far from town. Wouldn't stay again.

Full family visit

I booked 3 rooms. All of my 3 children and their partners, as well as their children, travelled with us. The carpet and furniture is starting to wear, but the rest of the amenities were very good. The second bedroom with a window into the hall needs addressing.

Convenient and comfortable

We were in Queenstown to play golf. With a car the Oaks Shores is conveniently located. The kitchenette was handy, and to sit on the deck outside was a bonus. Didn't like that the bedrooms in the courtyard appts do not have windows, claustraphobic for me.

Relaxing start to a holiday

We had 4 adults staying in a 2 room appartment. Both rooms had an ensuite which was wonderful. The lounge/dining area was quite large so we didn't fall over each other. The best feature was the huge deck which looked out onto the lake. You could have had a party with 30 of your friends on it.

Great views, close (enough) to town

We stayed on level 10 (which is actually level with the drive-way). Massive open deck and uninterrupted views of the lake. Only downside - expensive wifi access.
