Wonderful view in cozy lodge w/ the sweetest owner
What a wonderful lodge! I had the most pleasant stay after leaving another hotel. The view from the room was worthwhile. You could see straight to the mountains, and there's so much natural sunlight. It was so cozy that I didn't want to explore the town as much. Balmoral Lodge is a 15 minute walk downhill to Queenstown, but I would recommend taking a ride share back up since the hills can be brutal. The view is totally worth being a little farther from the city center. I also took a moment to speak with the owner of the Lodge. She's so kind and wonderful to talk to. She also has a dog, Benji, who greets people as they check in. I would stay here again.

The lady was so lovely made sure we were comfortable and had lovely talks. She let us leave our bag longer on the last day. The view was incredible from our room. You could walk down to the main town in 10 mins. Walking back in all uphill, very doable but a umber or taxi home was under $10.

Stunning Lake View in Town Apartment
Stunning beautiful view over lake and mountains, close to town, parking right out front. Enjoyed the jet tub and comfy beds after each day on the slopes. The laundry room was great for all the gear. Was so comfortable we ordered 8n with a movie instead of going out in town. would stay here again. Enjoyed the muffins provided every day.
