Highview Apartments

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A group of 5 of us spent 9 nights at Highview Apartments. My friend & I stayed in a studio room as we booked after the others. Room was spacious, very modern & clean. The other 3 we were travelling with stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on ground floor. Views were amazing! Private setting & peaceful. We enjoyed sitting around the fireplace in the mornings & the conveniences of the kitchen & washing machine. Late checkout was not an issue as staff are very accomodating! Unfortunately Jetstar cancelled our evening flight & we ended up staying the night at The Hilton... very disappointed! Pick Highview Apartments for your next stay in Queenstown!!

We were greeted by Julie and she immediately made us feel welcome . She was courteous and professional. The apartment was immaculate the views were sensational. The quality of fittings and warmth of the apartment was great. The spa and gymnasium were also fantastic . The location is a 12 minute walk to town and not difficult despite the hill. Whilst the beginning of our trip was let down by our previously booked accomodation at Balmoral lodge (see seperate review) their dishonesty and deception was our gain. Our sincerest thanks to highview apartments for a great vacation . James and family

Great hosts and very clean rooms. Kitchen is fully functional so we were able to cook at the apartment easily during our stay. Spectacular views of Lake Wakatipu and only a short walk into town - Brunswick St from town is a hard 300m climb for the average person though so you may consider hiring a car. This will be my regular stay when I return to Queenstown in the future.

This was a return visit as I had enjoyed a previous visit so much and knew the apartment was well designed, very comfortable, good value with wonderful views of the lake and convenient parking. There is a fully equiped kitchen and washing machine set out galley style so stock up on some breakfast makings and enjoy breakfast overlooking the lake. Only 2 little niggles, the bathroom has a double sink but nowhere to put makeup and skincare products and the curtains needed rehanging. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful.

Lovely room with comfortable beds, bathroom with lots of fluffy white towels along with a hairdryer and iron / ironing board. The kitchenette was perfect with fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster and all crockery / cutlery. Easy walk into Queenstown and close to the gondola. Lovely views over Lake Wakatipu and freedom to come and go without being tied to meal times. Nice and quiet away from the busy town centre. Free wi-fi and flat screen television - perfect after a couple of long days out.

What a fantastic spot on the hill overlooking the lake. We loved our stay, stunning room with great facilities and the spa pool was awesome! Thanks Julie and team for your wonderful friendly hospitality. We had a memorable week

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment with great views of down town Queenstown, the lake and the mountains. Although not spacious the apartment has modern fittings and all the appliances for a comfortable stay. There's lots of off street parking. The short walk to and from town is a small price to pay for the peace and quiet.

We booked a one bedroom apartment with great views out over Lake Wakatipu and across to the Remarkables. Central location means that downtown is only 10 minutes walk away and about the same to the base of the Gondola. The apartment was spacious, well appointed, nice furnishings and quiet too. Parking for our large 4x4 was easy to access. We enjoyed our two nights in a town that has grown out-of-sight; we last visited 42 years ago! We happily paid the extra for the apartment when management pointed out that studios unfortunately had no lake views.

Highview apartments is in a great location around a ten minute walk into Queenstown.I stayed in a studio room which was perfect for me as i was travelling alone.There was no view from the room but this didn't matter, as you only had to step outside when going for a walk to get the fantastic lake and mountain views. My room was clean modern and comfortable and the place itself is in a very quiet and peaceful spot , as long as you like walking up a hill on your way home from town . I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful ,and i would definately recommend Highview Apartments. It was my first visit to Queenstown and the place is just beautiful with lots of things to do and the town has everything you need for food,drink and fun.

We spent one night in a high standard Studio Apartment followed by eight nights in one of the larger Apartments with the lake and mountain view. The mountains are the Remarkables and so is Highview. The relaxed style of Manager Julie added to the whole experience. There is no need to look further than Highview for accommodation.
