I researched the best view in all of queenstown for weeks before travelling and this was my winner! A view like no other, beautiful facilities, so clean and perfect, amazing staff. Can not wait to come back! Easy walk to town and love the fire

We were 5 days here in our glorious apartment in Queenstown. What a view! But the apartment really was fantastic. It had a galley kitchen which was fully equipped. Good size fridge and washer dryer and dish washer. It had everything we needed. Under flour heating in the bathroom too. Very clean and brilliantly comfortable. We couldn’t have asked for better. Would highly recommend this place to everyone. It was also very quiet and peaceful.

Had 3 nights here and first look is very modern and nice looking building. Nice facilities but not serviced daily. I thought it was quite pricy for what it was but booked late and not much accommodation available. Had a morning without water. Left a message at reception but nobody contacted me. The water was back on when returning late afternoon. Strange overhead bed lighting. My switch worked the other bed and vice versa.

Lovely modern apartments some with views of the lake. About a ten minute walk to town. Fireplaces and balconies and full amenities. Great reception staff and adequate parking off street. Good value for money.

View was incredible. Modern and well kept apartment. Loved the under floor heating. Would love to have stayed longer than 6 nights. Balcony got the morning sun . Basic amenities provided such as shampoo, conditioner, soap and for the kitchen there was plenty of tea and coffee. Washing machine and dish washer provided with cleaning powder sachets. Rooms very quiet. An excellent stay.

We originally booked two units ( without lake views) for us and our friends. When we arrived our host Julie advised for a little extra she could put us into a two BR unit that looked over the lake. This was the right decision, since the view from on top of the hill looking over the lake is spectacular. You also have a large deck to sit outside to enjoy this view. Being away from the busy part of Queenstown was a plus, but also a negative. Others have said the walk was 10 minutes......I don't think so. Figure at least 15 min., closer to 20 minutes. Also, the return trip is back up the hill. All of us are in shape people, but after dinner in the evening non of us were looking forward to the walk back home. Parking in Queenstown is horrible, but we did find a convenient indoor lot on the same street as the Highview which made it easier without having to deal with the Queenstown traffic. This eliminated the walk, but I still would have preferred to be closer to town especially in the evening. The unit it self was terrific. Large kitchen area, large refrigerator and a living room area.Unit was very clean and all was good. So, if you don't mind being a little further out of town, this would be an excellent choice to stay.

Highview is an easy 5-10 minute walk to downtown Queenstown. The apartments are modern clean and have good amenities. The staff are friendly and relaxed. An enjoyable stay with views over looking Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables. I would stay here again, a tip for travellers, book direct with the Highview and it will be at least 15% cheaper than online booking. Plenty of free car parking

Highview is close to the centre of town, just a short ten minute walk. Rooms are very nice, ours had a fireplace that was great and easy to use. Awesome views out over the lake are definitely worth spending the money on, it's just incredible waking up to that view. Full kitchen makes it easy if you want to make your own meals

Loved the location of our apartment - just a short walk to town - and it was very quiet. Our apartment had a great view of the lake and mountains. Friendly staff as well. A bit more wardrobe and suitcase storage space would make it perfect.

Stayed the night! Rooms were well presented and looks very new even it’s 10 years old! The carpet were clean and tiles were new! Toilets bathroom were clean, lounges were huge and looking right in front was lake wakatipu! Would definitely comeback for a stay
