Valentines Weekend

Arrival was slowed but that was due to miscommunication on my part. I expected the apartment to be ready by 11 but it was not as checkout time was only at 11 so this was something to keep in mind. Facilities was fantastic, i booked a single apartment with a king bed which was perfect for a couple. The kitchen and facilities was top notch with a space to entertain guests if required. All standard kitchen cutlery and white ware was present and that was of a good quality. The free wifi and internet was incredibly good to have , considering so many other providers charge you $10-20 a night for internet access in this day and age which is criminal. An issue with a random phone call ( a wake up call? 0 was received at 6 in the morning which was unexpected. Bathroom was separate with a shower / tub which did cause an issue. The height of the shower area was higher than expected and there was sharp corners in the design of the shower area was not the best idea imho. Bed was little soft but that was only self preference. Dryer and washing machine was in a shared corridor with the studio apartment which did have some noise issues but nothing too jarring. Perhaps the only issue could be if your neighbour was extra loud or noisy but that was not the case for us. Highly recommended and Pounamu would be top of the list when we return.

Great modern rooms + friendly helpful staff

We stayed in the Studio room, which was amazing for what it was. The apartments are very modern and the bathroom is fitted with a shower that also can be used as a deep bath. We had already done our snowboarding and stored our snowboard bag in the locker in the garage. The studio would be too small if you had to bring your snowboard gear into the rooms. The staff were super friendly and helpful. There is an outdoor spa which was great. You just have to book your time to use it. Wi-Fi is free, and when we were there they were looking into improving it as everyone has smart phones etc, so it chews up a lot of the bandwidth. It is about a 15-20 minute walk to town, depending on where you are going. There is a share washing machine and dryer between 2 apartments. They also had umbrellas to use in this cupboard. The beds were super comfortable. One negative thing out of experience was that the walls were very thin and we could hear our neighbours talking in their room.

ticks all the boxes

If you can give up on a lake view, the apartments at the back of the complex offers excellent value. The room was beautifully kitted out and had everything you need! I also liked the fact that it was not too close to the the town centre (15 mins walk), which helped burn off dinner and was quieter. Oh and genuine free wifi is very useful. Oh and the staff at reception were unbelievably helpful in arranging and recommending the best value trips/activities. Would stay there again, very highly recommended.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Save up and fly to Milford sound from Queenstown with Glenorchy airline (4-6 seater fixed wing aircraft with great crew). Incredible experience and saves 1.5 days travel/petrol/driving/accomodation!

Had a wonderful stay. Only drawback

Had a wonderful stay. Only drawback was access from carpark to apartment was up some flights of steps and exposed to the weather. it did not affect us as we had perfect weather but not so good if it had been raining.

Excellent facilities in one bedroom

Excellent facilities in one bedroom apartment! We love the living room with incrediable lake view. It seems studio doesn't have any lake view.

It is a bit on the expensive side,

It is a bit on the expensive side, but the people were very helpful and friendly and our studio apartment was great. Considering we had just come back after a long hike with wet back packs and gear, it was so nice to have a lovely, well appointed room. There is no view, the apartments being on the other side of the road from the lake. But it is definitely a nice place to stay in. They had a washing machine and dryer (shared between two apartments), with clothes racks etc, under cover parking and a kitchenet with microwave and fridge. The people were lovely, they even offered to have our wet back packs in the boiler room so they dry fast! We had a great stay and would highly recommend the apartments.
