    Nice. Unfortunately rooms on 2nd floor, restaurant on 3rd floor. Can hear lots of thumping sound from restaurant in the morning.

    The location and view are incredible. I spend over 100 nights / yr away from home and this is one of the most disappointing places I have stayed. The property needs maintenance - painting, updating & freshening needed all over. Major renovation underway on a large section of the apartments and they are covered with a large tent. None of this was mentioned before arrival or at time of booking. The most notable aspect of this property is the poor customer service and management. They are not welcoming and they do not try to help you - 15 minutes late to breakfast - you're out of luck, want to go to town - the van is full. Want to make a local call - they'll charge you. We chose this property based on the views (which are terrific). My advice would be book at the Rees Apartments or stay in Queenstown off the lake. You can quickly walk or have a short drive to anywhere in town, so being right on the lake isn't as critical as other lake destinations. Queenstown is extraordinary but this establishment needs a complete management and property over haul to be worth visiting. We stayed in the 4 bedroom unit, paid in advance and made our reservations 7 months in advance. We hoped to have an outstanding time at this property but it was very disappointing and I would not recommend it.
