The owners are very helpful and accommodating! allowing us to leave our baggage with them after check out due to late flight. only thing that was slightly irritating is the large heater in the room didn't work overly well. Luckily there was a small heater in the room...

When looking for a place to stay, I looked for good price and good location. This had both. The owners were both so helpful. They ensured that I was settled in OK. They were really helpful with any issues and helped out with any directions when required to get around. The room was a little bit dated, which is the...

We were welcomed by a friendly staff member and shown to our room. The room felt like it had recently had a fresh coat of paint and was clean and well appointed. The kitchen had everything we required including a slow cooker, microwave & cook top. Tea/coffee/sugar were replenished daily . The beds were very comfortable and even though we...

If you’re looking for a clean and well-equipped budget accommodation located in central Queenstown, this is the answer. Amber Lodge is a small motel owned by Alan and Sue. First, it’s only a couple of walk to the city central a.k.a Shotover Street. Second, the room is quite spacious and clean, equipped with fast wifi, room heater and heated blanket,...

We were very happy with our stay in Amber Lodge. We had a four-sleeper room next to reception, which also had a reasonably well-equipped kitchenette. There were plenty of spare blankets which came in handy during the cold nights. The parking in front of the room was also convenient. The gondola is an easy walk, and we found the lodge...

To start, Queenstown is very beautiful. We were greeted at the lodge by the owner who was very friendly and helpful. The location was great and we were able to walk anywhere we wanted to go in town and to the lake. The rooms were clean and had everything you would need for a short stay. The only thing I...

The lodge is located about 70m from the Alpine Supermarket and just a stroll to all the other shops in town. So fantastic just to leave the car there and walk absolutely everywhere especially for dinner etc. The location is absolutely bang-on. The lodge has a modest, older decorating style but is clean. The managers are very friendly and helpful....
