Spectacular lakeside views in good-value Queenstown hotel.”

The Earnslaw Lodge picked a prime piece of real estate for its location when it was built in the 1970’s. It’s a pleasant 15-minute walk into Queenstown through its . amazing lakeside park. You will see dozens of newer, and more expensive lodgings in Queenstown- but few can match the Earnslaw Lodge’s lake- view rooms for jaw-dropping views. Not all of the rooms have the spectacular views of Lake Wakatipu- but the ones that do are the ones to reserve. You may not see a lot of Queenstown because you might not leave your room!

Stayed in Earnslaw Lodge for 3 nights, couldn't have asked for a better place! Gorgeous lake views, excellent service, very comfy bed, has everything you need for a short getaway to beautiful Queenstown. The place is a short walk away from all the adventure and wonder that awaits in town, perfect for post dinner strolling. Would definitely stay in Earnslaw Lodge again next time we're in QT.

Good value, friendly service”

Our stay at Earnslaw lodge was pleasant. It's in a relatively good location, an easy 15 minute walk into town. The hotel itself has decent facilities, and is very clean. But you do get what you pay for; the place was tired and in need of a renovation - it was very tired and lacked amenities like plugs in the bathroom and a telephone. Overall, if you're looking for a clean place to stay, with friendly service, at a good price point, Earnslaw is a great option!

The owners were very friendly and helpful. I did not eat in the hotel, so I cannot say anything of the food. Earnslaw Lodge is really worth of its price and I can recommend it.min. 50 words

I arrived early (around 10AM), which was way before check in but they had a room ready and let me check in, which I thought was nice. Also, the people who checked me in were extremely helpful in planning out what to do during my stay there. The view from my room was beautiful. Queenstown itself is very small, it can take you about ten minutes to walk across it, and the Lodge is about a ten minutes walk outside of town. There is a little hill to go up but it is very very manageable and I enjoyed staying here.

Excellent view. We had lake facing room. More than anything else, the lady at the counter saved us from what could have been a dangerous travel with our 4yrs old. We were all set to leave for Franz Josef glacier and loaded our bags, the lady at the counter warned us about the landslide and highway closure with really bad weather conditions which we were completely unaware of. She helped us to call the road authorities and then we changed our plans and went to Queenstown instead. Thanks so much!!
