Next time you need a mountain fix, be sure to let us know and we would be more than happy to assist you in finding further accommodation in either Queenstown or Wanaka! Best Wishes, Goodstays.

The apartment was as pictured, slightly aged but nothing concerning, a great spot, big walk up the hill, amazing views.
We had negative experiences each time I attempted to contact Goodstays; took at least 7 phone calls to request the crib and high chair that was paid for, after finally contacting someone (physically going to their office) there was no apology just a strong reminder on where to keep the spare key. Never got the crib, I gave up. Called to politely ask for a late checkout and got told no; before they knew which property I was in.

Hello Luke, firstly I would like to thank you for choosing to book with us here at Goodstays and for taking the time to leave us some valuable feedback. I am very surprised to hear that you had a negative experience with our team, we feel very lucky here at Goodstays to have a friendly and helpful staff so I can only apologise that this was not your encounter. In terms of late checkouts, unfortunately we are rarely able to grant these, especially during peak seasons as our housekeeping team needs all the time they can get to thoroughly clean the property prior to the next guest's arrival. We wish you all the best for the future and safe onward travels. Kind Regards, Caitlin-Goodstays.

Lakeview 8 is a great apartment, suitable for 4-5 people. Best thing is the 2 separate toilets!! although only 1 shower. Kitchen quite functional and lounge/dining is a reasonable size. The walk up the hill is a killer but $7 in a taxi. Would recommend.

We had a wonderful time in Queenstown. The place was absolutely perfect. Great views from the master bedroom and living room. We were comfortable, although there was a bit of neighborhood noise every night. We could hear lots of music from downtown if we had the windows open. We loved all the activities that were available in the area. Nice walk, although coming back to the place was like climbing a mountain. I would definitely stay here again if my travel plans bring me back to the area.

Great value and location. Far enough so that it is quiet but near enough to walk to everywhere in town. Superb view up the top of Malaghan Rd of Lake Wakatipu. Steep hill to climb coming back from town but no real problem. Close to supermarkets on Shotover St, Fresh Choice and Raeward (gourmet supermarket). Very comfortable, newly renovated living areas and bathroom, unlimited hot water and wifi. Kitchen fairly well equipped with electric cooktop/oven. dishwasher, microwave. Kitchen tap needs a new washer. BBQ outside on patio but we didn't use this. 3 levels so need to be able to manage stairs. Steven, the manager, responds quickly to emails and allowed us a late checkout when requested. Definitely recommend.

Great views from this 1970's style walk up. Road is a little treacherous to navigate due to steepness and anti icing stone. Apartment is functional, albeit a little short on a few things.. only five forks, no grater or.... god forbid a corkscrew. Given the high cost of staying here and queenstown in general I would have expected a much higher level of equipment, lighting etc, not just the cheapest stuff available. Our stay was good but not really up to the standard expected for a few hundred a night.

Was a great setup with lots of space for 4 adults. Absolutely beautiful views and great location. The place could have been perfect, but it needed a thorough cleaning. When I contacted the agency, they did send someone immediately to change the bedding and we needed sheets to cover the couches as they were stained and grimey. The dishwasher was broken and we could not use it the entire time. This place has so much potential, it just needs some TLC.

The apartment was exactly as advertised. The arrangement for check in/check out with the keys was very easy. The unit was clean and roomy. The kitchen and laundry were very well equipped. The furniture wasn't new but clean and comfortable. Let's be honest, you don't want brand new extravagant furniture that you're too scared to sit on so we were happy with that. The lock-up garage was very useful. The view was outstanding. I've stayed in Queenstown on many occasions and the view from the Lakeview unit was one of the best. We didn't close the curtains once all week. I would definitely stay here again, without a doubt.

Dear Helen, thank you for your feedback and great to hear you enjoyed your stay at Lakeview Apartment.

A nice apartment with fantastic views of the lake. A great location if you prefer to be away from the action. The neighbours were noisy late at night but as far as the actual apartment goes, it was very comfortable and had everything we needed, including a full kitchen and a washing machine. The floor was a bit creaky but I think that is expected with an older style place. It was very clean and the bed was very comfy. The views from the main bedroom were great. The outdoor furniture was in need of a clean prior to use and the balcony has seen better days but it was nice and homely and it was very close to the Queenstown Hill Walk. I would stay here again. We had a fantastic time.

Re Lakeview Apartment 8.
14 Malaghan St.
Thank you for the opportunity to review the accommodation. I prefer not to have my review on the website but just want to say that the accommodation was fine. The furnishings are tired, especially the carpets, but the beds are comfortable and the appliances excellent. They mostly seemed brand new.
The biggest problem was finding the apartment. The street number is not visible neither is the name Lakeview Apartments. Having eventually found it, I contacted Goodstays by phone to say that No. 1 where we were booked into was already occupied. Happily No 8 was unoccupied and we took that instead.
Kind regards,
Mary Cull.

The hill climb on foot is, admittedly steep but proximity to the heart of Queenstown and all it has to offer, coupled with the truly stunning views from the panorama style windows make this apartment a top choice. The apartment is well laid out and functional for a family stay. The kitchen was well equipped, clean and functional. The bathroom is fresh and, again, functional for a family. Whilst we had no chance to utilise the generous outdoor bbq and patio area, it would make a great space for 'happy hour' overlooking one of the most picturesque views I've seen in a long time. Arriving at Lakeview 8 at the end of our stay in NZ we found we had not need for our vehicle and could stroll everywhere we needed or wanted to go. A lovely oasis at the end of our holiday.

I would give my stay an 8 out of 10. At the end of the day it was a great place to stay. Wonderful views and convenient location. However, there where a few things that where less than ideal. The laundry leaked therefore there was constantly puddles of water needing to be mopping up (I don't know about you but I don't particularly wish to be mopping while on holidays.) the floors where VERY creaky which was very frustrating (someone getting up in the night to use the toilet would wake the whole house hold). The bathroom was also pouring designed. The diagonal shower screen was not well sealed and would leak while the shower is running. These things would be easily fixed and I would suggest you do so. If I was to come to Queenstown again I would defiantly consider staying with you again although I would not give a pleasant review if these things where still the same. As I said at the end of the day it was a good place to stay apart from those few minor set backs. Emma Richards.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review, and bringing these issues with the property to our attention. The bathroom is a new fit-out, so we will follow up and ask the builder to take a look at the leaking/sealing issue you've outlined. There is a new washing machine in the laundry, so we were unaware of the leaking onto the floor. this too we will follow up with. Thanks again and do think of Goodstays next time you visit beautiful Queenstown!

We think the house and it's location is great! However, when we arrived there was scaffolding up blocking the garage (where we thought we could've parked) and a little bit of the view which wasn't a real big issue. The parking was made very difficult and we were confronted with a not-so-happy neighbour (house #7 )because they too couldn't park, so she asked us to move our car and her reason is that we were only there as temporary guests! I thought this was absurd! I paid for this accommodation thinking I would be getting a park. There were duvet covers in the wardrobe but they smelt and seemed unwashed. Another issue is that I have a young daughter and when I called the manager confirming the safety of the house and the scaffolding, he was abrupt and didn't sound too pleased I called him on a Saturday afternoon. Nevertheless we thought we would try and enjoy our stay until Tuesday the 22nd of April at 8am we were woken up by 3-4 men talking outside our room and another walking up on the roof taking the scaffolding down, unacceptable noise at that time!!! A phone call before hand to advise us this was going to happen would've sufficed! Hence the reason we would not be staying there again!

Great location with a fantastic view over town and lake from house, especially main bedroom and loungeroom. The two internal stairs could do with a handrail for older guests. Walking to and from town only for the extremely fit, otherwise a car is essential. Television was limited but apart from that, I would definitely stay again. Goodstays helpful during office hours.

Ideal apartment for us. We spent a week in Queenstown. Found apartment to be very well located for centre of town. Fabulous view from balcony. Keybox entry very handy for arrival and the whole experience went without a hitch. Would stay there again if back in Queenstown.

Besides the hill I highly recomend this holiday rental, it has everything you need for a comfortable stay at a great price. The views are to die for and was hard to leave.

Good Location, although walking up the hill is not for the faint hearted. Excellent views. The unit is a little out dated. Few things need to be updated. There wasn't a plug for the kitchen sink. The upstairs toilet took a long time filling up. All the taps need new washers. The unit was warm, the beds and pillow very comfortable. No regrets staying there. Plenty of room. No good for people who have trouble climbing stairs, there is two sets of stairs, one to the 1st level where the kitchen and lounge area is and then set of stairs to the bedrooms and bathroom.
All in all the place was clean and comfortable with great views.

Initially when we came, there was no running water as the water pipes were frozen (middle of winter), and there was no adequate heating in the bedrooms.Next day we complained about it to the goodstays staff and it was resolved quite quickly.Those initial problems were forgotten as the location of this property is breathtaking.

Queenstown experienced the coldest temperatures in 20 years during the period these guests were staying, resulting in uncontrollable issues such as frozen pipes. Our team naturally did their best to ensure all guests were as comfortable as possible given the circumstances - it is the putting right that counts and we're pleased that the remainder of your stay was good!

Overall the property was to a good standard but was let down by a number of niggerly issues that would have caused problems for a longer stay such as.
Floorboards creaking so badly that any movement could be heard no matter where you were,no bath plug.the hot water ran out on several occasions, on the morning we left there was none at all despite nobody using it overnight?.several of the lightbulbs were dead.
The bedrooms could have used some nets as the first morning i managed to flash to the world on opening the curtains,(my friend managed to peer into his own room from the gondola with a 80mm camera lens)I would hate to find myself on utube.
Most of these issues can be easily remedied and caused only minor inconvenience.

Once we got our breath back from the walk up the hill to the apartment, we settled in easily. There was a great balcony, with a small paved garden area which was lovely to sit in to look at the view of Lake Wakatipu. It suited our purposes perfectly, having a garage for storage,and other conveniences such as dishwasher and washing machine. The kitchen was fine for cooking in. The decor is a bit dated, but it is clean and acceptable. We nipped into town and back many times - - - I would stay in this apartment again

We had a very enjoyable stay in this modest, yet very roomy appartment. It was generally very well maintained with all the necessary amenities, comfortable furniture and good sized bedrooms There was an excellent outside area for "alfresco dining"/sitting with a small BBQ available. From the appartment there we wonderful views of hub of Quuenstown , out to the Gondala/Skyline buildings and over the lake

A wonderful apartment that delivered the views it promised. Fantastic location, close to town. Easy walk into town, and good workout climbing the hill back or use the car. Fell in love with Queenstown-- such a happy, alive and vibrant town. Everyone friendly and relaxed.Loads of young people much to see and do. Exciting and fresh. Definitely coming back.

From the moment I step into the apartment, everything was majestic. The condition of the apartment was excellent. It was spacious and suit for family that coming for a holiday in Queenstown. The view from verandah and main bedroom was splendid.

Our stay was very enjoyable with spectacular views from this apartment and the centre of town being less than 5 minutes walk. There were a few draw backs though i.e. the hill climb on the walk home gets your heart pumping and we are quite fit people, also
the main bedroom didnt have electric blankets so being the middle of winter the mrs was a bit cold, also the water pressure in the shower was very weak. That being said it was a very good stay and due to the positives I would definately recommend it to others
and would stay at this residence again.

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children (8 & 13 yrs) were very comfortable in this older style apartment. The views are fantastic, and it is close to town, but be prepared for a steep walk home. The amenities were older style, but all in good working order. Our only criticism is that the beds were a bit too old. However we would still recommend the property as being ideal for a self catering holiday.

The only thing missing was perhaps some extra blankets. Things do get a little cold in Queenstown. Also the hill up to the property is very steep, while it was okay for us (being fit) it might pay to have that noted on the discription. Anyone who was not fit would not be able to walk back from town to the property as the hill is a killer!
