Queenstown at its best !!

Posted Jul 6, 2016 on Wotif
Pros: From when we stepped through the door all 5 of us were thrilled . Warm , convenient location and the view ....... AMAZING
Cons: Double glazing on the main bedroom window . I have seen some reviews not happy with the noise. Didn't bother us too much
Location: Location , Location ,Location . After driving around the lake I have to say for us it was THE best spot in Queenstown for the view across the Lake
We had a fabulous stay at the Esplanade . Thank you for everything.Could not have picked a better place to stay for our family holiday . Our 2 older kids absolutely loved the town house and that's saying something ! I can't tell you how comfortable, warm and cosy it was . We walked in and out of town every day/ evening . It was just so convenient. The view across the lake and up into the mountains with their snow caps was breathtaking . Waking up to that every morning .... didn't want to leave . The open fire was lovely after a day on the slopes. Will definitely be back . Many Thanks x

Esplanade Queenstown, great location

Posted Apr 22, 2016 on Wotif
Apartment was fantastic, location and views superb. TV was a little awkward to use, would be nice to have more input capability too (USB or HDMI maybe). Really a minor point though, everything else was truly enjoyable.

Great location, comfortable accommodation with all that you require. Found the place not overly clean and the carpet was badly stained in areas.

Pros: Stunning apartment, better than photos on the web, amazing mountain and lake views, short flat walk to town, quiet end of town, couldn't hear neighbou
Cons: Cleaners used our garage for sheet and towel storage for the whole complex and left the garage door open
Location: Perfect
Facilities: Top of the line; Value: Fantastic; Service: Professional, Friendly; Cleanliness: Immaculate; Service was very professional and friendly, but they didn't advise us that the cleaners would be using our garage. Everything else was perfect.

Hi Fiona, Appreciate your feedback, and due to the nature of the apartment complex and the body corporate restrictions we have to use the garages for our linen storage, we are apologize in this instance. But seemed it did not dampen your experience all the same and we welcome you back in the future. Regards the Team at Staysouth.com

Hi Maureen, Thank you for your time in placing a review, Great to hear you enjoyed the location of the villas and the walk to town was good. Very disappointed to hear the cleanliness was not up to our usual high standard, since your review we have had a change in operations and we do trust this will not happen again.
