Platinum Queenstown reviews


15 Sep 2020

We have just returned from a five night stay at Platinum Villas in Sept and were utterly blown away!! Not only are the villa views spectacular, everything you could want had been thought of and provided in the self contained villa and the staff were so courteous, helpful, friendly and wonderful - we have raved about this accommodation and cannot wait to return; we won’t stay anywhere else!!! The beds were incredibly comfortable, the decor was cosy but modern and slick, the bathrooms were beautiful and spacious and there was nothing that had not been provided. When we arrived on a chilly afternoon, we walked inside to a beautifully warm villa- amazing heaters that kept us so cosy the entire time - so much so that we couldn't bring ourselves to go out for dinner once! ABSOLUTE HEAVEN!!!!! Cannot wait to return!!!!

"Great family holiday"

10 Aug 2020

We're a family of 5 adults and five nights in Queenstown at the Platinum Villas was a great break-away from AKL for all of us. The Villas are warm and comfortable,the kitchen is well-appointed and the Lake-front view is majestic. The area is quiet removed from street noise. There's a hill to climb but it's still an easy 15-20 min walk to the hub restaurants, activities, Browns ski rentals, buses to the hills etc. This property represents excellent value at a difficult time when the world is grappling with the Covid pandemic. We were very grateful we could take the opportunity to enjoy spectacular Queenstown and everything that's on offer there. People who are put off the crowds of tourists, would do well to go there now or as soon as AKL is out of level 3 lockdown. There's a wonderful vibe in Queenstown as businesses work hard to recover from the difficulties brought on by the pandemic.

"Lake View Villa"

21 Jul 2020

I have to say this is one of best places I've stayed at! Everything was perfect, from the staff, to the cleaners, to our Amazing Villa and that Spectacular View. We absolutely loved it and i highly recommend it to anyone looking at staying here. We would absolutely stay here again, if we come down again. The Location is Top Notch not far from town an easy walk or catch the bus, which is just outside on the rd, made it so easy to get around. Lovely and peaceful, waking up to uninterrupted views, it was truly the best! Thank you Platinum Villas and all the staff we had an amazing stay!

"You'll keep coming back!"

25 Mar 2020

"This is the third year we've stayed as large group in 4 villas. The villa's are fantastic for larger groups - and all have breathtaking views. The kitchen, dining and lounge are spacious and very well equipped. In colder months the heating keeps you very toasty and there is extra bedding to keep you cosy. The team are excellent and will make your stay seamless. Even though only minutes walking distance from town you feel like you're in your own mountainside hideaway."

"One of Queenstown’s True Gems"

20 Mar 2020

"My wife and I travelled from Sydney with our toddler. From the moment we checked in, Alana made us feel amazingly welcome. Our villa was immaculately clean, spacious and very tastefully furnished. We stayed in a Lakeview villa which opened up onto a beautiful green lawn and had simply breathtaking views over the lake. It was absolutely magnificent!! Having visited Queenstown many times in the past, and having stayed at a range of different accommodation, this one takes the cake. We will be back!"

"Flawless accommodation"

10 Feb 2020

Probably one of the best places I have stayed anywhere. Our alpine view apartment also had glorious partial lake views. The apartment presented as new with luxurious features such as the schist fireplace, underfloor bathroom heating, dual shower heads and Nespresso machine. Extremely clean and very comfortable beds. Reception staff were always helpful and friendly. I could live here forever quite happily.

"Simply Fantastic"

1 Jan 2020

We are a family of four who recently stayed in a lake villa for Xmas and New Year. This place is not cheap but worth every penny. Beautiful villa with gorgeous views of the lake. Some days we just stayed in as it was so comfortable however a short walk downhill gets you to the town centre which is wonderful. Staff were lovely and very accommodating. Would definitely recommend.

Platinum Villa has lived up to its name. It was very obvious that great care has been looked into to ensure that the amenities provided are in tip top condition. Everything was like brand new and they even provided a Nespresso coffee machine. We stayed at 4 different apartments, Platinum was the last. It culminates our holiday and we will definitely recommend it to our family and friends.

"Simply Fantastic"

20 Nov 2019

My husband and I just returned from a 4 week holiday in NZ and after staying in 6 other hotels/serviced apartments, PQV is top on my list when it comes to quality accommodation. We spent 4 wonderful days there and it was almost like home. We took the 2 bedroom apartment (simply because we wanted 2 bathrooms!) and everything was spot on PERFECT...... from the well equipped and spacious kitchen through to the beautiful Dining and Living areas - complete with a fireplace and classy Designer touches to it. We even had our own private garage with the option of parking our car right outside our front door, a boon when it comes to unloading heavy luggage.Upstairs the beds were super comfy, the bathrooms had heated floors and the location of the washing machine and dryer (tucked very neatly behind a door at the landing) made it so convenient for laundry. Finally, what can I say about the location and view - just WOW!! Since PQV is located up a hill, both our Living and Master Bedrooms had stunning unobstructed views of the lake - I wish I could wake up to this view every morning of my life. And of course being up on a hill and just at the end of Lakeview Drive, PQV is in a very quiet location yet just a 7min drive to downtown Queenstown. With such perfection, I will definitely be back.

"Wow, luxury with mountain view"

10 Sep 2019

I can't rate this accommodation highly enough. We had a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 2 level villa. From the minute you walk in the door you say Wow, this is amazing. All amenities - gourmet kitchen, dish washer, coffee machine, dining, lounge, gas fire which we loved! Washing machine and drier. Hair drier. Heated bathroom floors! The beds were so comfortable with big soft pillows. Heaven in Queenstown!

We've stayed at Platinum Villas twice this year. Once in summer and once in winter. Each stay was enjoyable and super convenient to town. For our second stay, we invited another family and booked two villas side by side and were well accommodated by the staff. The villas have all the conveniences of home and great that you can keep up with laundry! I was worried that we would be cold over-night during our winter stay but the opposite was true — we were kept cosy and warm with heating upstairs and downstairs. The only negative is that the garages are quite narrow so we had to offload passengers before parking — but a minor hassle. The coffee machine was superb. We'll be back for sure. Summer or winter, the mountains and lake are phenomenal.

"Great spot"

15 Jul 2019

The villas were perfect and had everything we needed for a great family holiday. Short walk into town made the position of these villas the best we've stayed in after many years of coming to Queenstown.

"A Bliss on Earth!!"

19 Feb 2018

For starters; the pictures don't do justice to the location as the views are absolutely magical. We had booked the villa for 3 days and there is not one negative about this place. For anyone who prefers to stay indoors; this place is packed with all the essentials to sit back and relax on the couch: DVD players; home theatre system, fireplace, DVDs and games which can be rented from the more than helpful reception, a kitchen which is equipped with state of the art facilities. For outdoor enthusiasts; the villa is only a 10 minute walk from the happening town centre of Queenstown. I would definitely be visiting this place soon and would highly recommend platinum villas for anyone passing through this beautiful city. Cheers.

"Absolutely stunning!"

24 Jan 2019

As a family of 5 it's really hard to find reasonable and nice accommodation in Queenstown. Platinum was outstanding. It had 3 bedrooms, with enough beds for all of us, plus a great kitchen and dining area, and a nice lounge to relax in. The views we had were of the garden, but some have stunning views of the lake. It was extremely easy to book, find and enter (we arrived after reception was closed). There is parking for your car either in a (small) garage or off road, but not covered. I wasn't sure how it would go as it is out of town a little way, but we walked in one evening when we had a bit of time and it only took 20 mins. It's not a hard walk there, but back you have a hill to contend with. Not too hard though! If you're feeling adventurous take the 'nature' walk on your left as you head around the corner. The hill down is very steep, but it takes you off the road which is nice. When dealing with reception they were helpful and efficient. If we were back in Queenstown, I'd stay here without hesitation and will recommend to anyone else going there!

"Gorgeous Class + Elegance in Queenstown"

25 Apr 2019

We had an amazing stay at the Platinum Queenstown Villas up on Fernhill just minutes outside of downtown Queenstown. Over the years of traveling all over the world, my partner and I have developed a bit of a taste for luxury over economy, so we were completely blown away by the quality accommodation at PQV. The staff were super friendly and accommodating, and I just want to specifically call out Alana at the front desk / reservations for going so far out of her way for me to return a lost item through the post that I left behind when we checked out of the villa. Very thoughtful, kind and accommodating staff and that actual Villa itself was pure perfection. Sparkling clean, spacious, high-end, unbelievable views. 10/10 would stay here again in a heartbeat. (and definitely plan to, next time we're in Queenstown!)

"Absolutely beautiful!"

12 Jun 2019

My family of 5, all adults, stayed in a 3 bedroom unit for 4 nights. I definitely made the right choice picking Platinum Queenstown villas. We had a lake view which was spectacular! The unit had modern furnishings and very clean. Spacious and beautiful. Full kitchen with all necessary items. Fireplace was a delight on a cold day. And I really loved the heated tile floors in the bathrooms, very luxurious. Front desk staff was very nice and helpful. The walk into town is beautiful and takes about 15 minutes. We would often walk but a few times we took a cab into town for about $14NZ. There are many lodging options in town but nothing I saw could compare to this place.

"Great views, very comfortable, very friendly."

21 Mar 2019

We found this to be a great place to base ourselves for a few days in Queenstown. The villas are well equipped, spacious, modern facilities, and have excellent views. The staff seem quite invested in the running of the place, and are very friendly and helpful. It takes about 10 minutes to stroll to the town centre from here, about 12 minutes back because it's up a wee hill. Everything is conveniently to hand, and functions as it should. All I'd suggest is maybe some more hooks and maybe a shelf or two in the bathrooms. (I tend to think that about every hotel bathroom I've ever been in though, so maybe that's just me.) The kitchen layout/facilities are excellent. The open gas fire goes at the push of a switch, and is great in the evening to keep the chill off. During the day (it was late summer/early autumn) it was quite warm enough without it. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

"It just keeps getting better"

19 May 2019

Just back from our 4th stay at Platinum and the place simple gets better every time we go. For those who are reading past reviews simply believe them and book your accommodation as soon as you can; you wont be surprised. If you want to stay in an outrageously good valued / large / modern and spotlessly clean villa that is run by truly caring professional hosts that will do everything possible to make you stay enjoyable then make your booking I have had friends who have paid a higher tariff for a simple motel room in Q/T for what is charged at Platinum; although I cant for the life of me see why you would stay in a hotel. Special thanks to Alana and Ben who are truly great people but then again we have never had an issue with any of the team. We have already made tentative booking for 2020 and almost feel like part of the Platinum family. Cant wait to go back - roll on 2020.
