Enjoyed our stay here. We had a hire car so having parking was important and was free (they have some secure underground as well as outdoor). We had the one bedroom apartment, everything was clean and with a big kitchen with oven and microwave. Lounge room was excellent and a lovely view out the big windows. It was a short walk into the main area of Queenstown which was excellent not to have to drive everywhere.

Nice and big apartment, close walking to all the restaurants and bars. Only downfall being on the first floor is if a van parked outside you lost part of the view other than that if we are in Queenstown again we will definitely be staying at the Waterfront again.
