Lakeside Motel

Reviewed 8 March 2017

The location of the motel is a 5 min easy walk to the town center, and is right now the lake front with fantastic views of the mountains, even though the room was next to the road, its not a busy road and i didn't notice the traffic noise at all.
The room was great, clean, spacious with a kitchen area. The kitchen area itself was good but a little dated, but more than enough for your needs. Beds very comfy and great bedding (sheets etc).
The bathroom itself was some what very dated (maybe time for a redo) but will be ok for your needs. The Staff very friendly and helpful.

Given the cost of staying in Queenstown, this place is very very good.
overall i'd be happy to stay here again.

Room Tip: I didn't ask for a certain room to start, but was given room #3 and this was the lake facing roo...

Lakeside motel was a pleasant surprise, located by the Esplanade street on the edge to Queenstown. The view from the room is breathtaking. The double room for two or three was large, with kitchen and bath. Clean, nice and cheap. But slow internet. I'll come here again. I recommend, but you better book in advance, it's busy.

We chose this motel for the view , it was brilliant. We were very happy with our stay, you would have to be pretty fussy not to have liked our room. Good little kitchen, very comfortable bed and pillows, vg linen, very clean, great Wifi. Within easy walking distance of the wharf, shops and restaurants, free parking provided. Probably half the price of motels with similar views, so very good value.

Staying in the so called Motel, upstairs room after I complained and refused to stay in their downstairs room with mold on the walls, dirt and grime everywhere, etc. This place should be up for demolition. To promote this a motel for $140 is shocking. The state of the hotel and the safety especially of the stairway outside and the electrics inside should lead to closing it down. The beds were totally worn, old and mold in cupboards and bathrooms. No free internet, no TV channels other than 1,2,3. NEVER EVER AGAIN !!

The room was well equipped but the room was very Tay and in need of a make over. Definitely the bottom end of the market. Stunning views of the lake but shared balcony and access depending on the other residents. Poorly insulated so noisy
