About Lakefront Apartments

As the name would suggest, Lakefront Apartments are indeed right on the lakeside, have lovely views across the water and are just a couple of minutes walk from the very heart of Queenstown.

The accommodation consists of 21 two and three bedroom apartments. They are comfortably furnished and decorated and feature all you could possibly need for a great holiday in New Zealand’s adventure capital, including TV with Sky channels and even washing machines.

Staff are available around the clock to assist with any query or concern. Motorists have the peace of mind of secure undercover parking right in the building.

The apartments have fully equipped kitchens, so guests are quite able to cook up a storm. BBQ grills can also be obtained from staff if needed.

The Coronet Peak ski area has a remarkably long season and is a mere 10 miles from Lakefront Apartments. Downtown Queenstown is just 900 yards away.

Positive Reviews

Absolutely incredible position

This was by far what most impressed guests about the apartments. They were described as just a very short walk from the centre of Queenstown, with its shops, bars cafes and other amenities. But what seemed to impress guests even more than this proximity was the views over the lake, which were said to be lovely.

The washer and dryer

Quite a number of guests were impressed to find a washer and dryer in their apartment. Of course, many holiday apartments do not include these two amenities, and they were especially appreciated by those who were staying for some time.

Very effective heating

Those travelling in the winter months were very happy to report that, perhaps unlike some other accommodation they had previously booked, the heating in these apartments worked like a charm, keeping them nice and cosy at all times.

Negative Reviews

In desperate need of a makeover

Guests were not at all happy with the condition of their apartments. They described places that have clearly been unloved and uncared for many, many seasons. The specific complaints were many, ranging from extremely worn fabrics to multiple broken appliances. But whatever the specific complaints, the general feeling was that the apartments urgently needed a full renovation in order to get up to scratch.

Missing utensils and kitchen equipment

A number of guests were really peeved to find that their kitchen simply wasn't adequately equipped. They spoke about having far too few plates, utensils and so on for the number of guests booked in, as well as missing some pretty basic pieces of kitchen equipment.

Dangerously low parking area

A number of guests warned that the roof of the parking garage is quite low, and that they had to remove their ski racks before entering, or risk destroying them.
