Lakeside Motel
Ranked #54 of 59 Hotels in Queenstown
Reviewed 16 August 2017

This is an old, and not overly attractive style motel with modest accommodation, but in a great location. If you are after a friendly, budget, clean, warm room with a level short walk to the town centre then the Lakeside is for you. The bathrooms have been redone and there are basic kitchen facilities. We stayed for 5 nights on a ski holiday and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor have a better view and less noise.

Been this motel many years back (18 years back). The location is prefect, some room lake facing offers the morning surprise when you arrived late and wake up with such a beautiful (I mean it) view. A view that should forget any negative experience about this motel. Hope they will improve the motel soon, so it can show the formal glory. Best of luck.

Room Tip: get the room facing the lake.

3rd time I have stayed here. I booked a standard studio room, got upgraded to an Apartment!!! Great location, 5 minute walk to town, and the lakefront at your door. Cheaper than most of the other same accommodations around hence why I always stay there.

Stayed: May 2017, travelled solo

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.
