Reviewed 13 May 2017

We found this motel to be perfectly placed so as to enjoy the scenery, the boating, the people. The staff [from many nations] were friendly & hospitable. The rooms although dated offered comfort, cleanliness and 'atmosphere'. A good stay in old surrounds.

Room Tip: For views this place offers it all.

We booked in advance and when we arrived the carpark was full so had to park on the hill behind. I had to carry a 20 kilo bag up the stairs after we finally managed to get a spot. The showers had mould in them and the place is noisy. The light from the hall was extremely bright so at night it felt like daytime. $140 a night and have to pay for internet as well.
Will not return again

Hotel was 5 minutes walk to town. Room was clean with very hot and powerful shower. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Would stay here again. And amazing views! Loved having breakfast looking out over the lake and mountains.

We stayed in one of the apartments. They are a 5 minute walk from the centre of Queenstown, giving easy access to the pier, restaurants and all activities. Front Desk Staff were very helpful and courteous too!

This is not the Ritz; it is a tired motel but the rooms are relatively clean. The best things about staying in this motel is that rooms have awesome views and it's a 5min easy walk to centre of town. It's also directly opposite a fantastic free BBQ area on the lake front. If you have a room on 1st or 2nd floor you do have to walk up some stairs otherwise choose a room on ground floor (tho yu don't get such a good view). If you are happy with not flashiness (which is so much part of lots of Queenstown accommodations) and want to be close to the town centre then this is worth a shot.
