They cleaned the room daily.
This property is a bait and switch. We booked the apartment which did state in small print on some of the photos was off-site. Off-site is quite an understatement! It was several km away in an industrial park immediately adjacent to a major road. We were awakened by traffic noise each morning at 6am. The street lights shine into the bedroom all night through the cheapest Venetian blinds imaginable and the apartment is in permanent shade with no central heating. It is absolutely disingenuous to advertise this apartment in the same listing as the lodge proper which is central and has views of the lake. Inevitably those other photos colour one’s expectations.The owner, who was very dismissive, is perfectly aware of this and clearly knows she would never be able to rent this apartment for as much without this ruse which uses the proper lodge rating as bait. There are many, many much better deals in beautiful Queenstown. For the same money we could have been staying lakeside. If an apartment in an industrial car park is for you, then this is it. The owners should create a SEPARATE LISTING. Only the reasonable cleanliness saves this from a ZERO rating. Beware!!!!
The beds were really comfy; The unit was clean and comfortable with all essentials; The unit was cleaned every day; We got chocolates left in the bowl every day (perfect for ski snacks!); Really easy access and heaps of parking; Quiet location but really short drive to grocery store / bottle shop / Queenstown centre; Really easy and quick access to Coronet Peak; The owner was really responsive and helpful when the washing machine broke
The owner was not always responsive when we needed to contact her.
The location is perfect and staff were friendly. we will be back
The apartment is close to town, has good views, has a kitchen appropriately stocked with cooking utensils, a good heating and car park right in front of it.
The cleaner left the front door open once, not very safe for our belongings. The second room can be opened from the inside but not locked making it unsafe for small children that like to roam around at night. Can't walk to town as it's on a hill.
Great apartment close to city centre with all the right amenities. Recommend to travellers who are not too fussy on luxury but happy with comfortable accomodation that makes the stay pleasurable. Celso and his team are very accommodating and made our stat very comfortable.
The sofas in the living room could do with a makeover.
