Happy New Year to you all, I hope you have enjoyed your Christmas and that Santa was kind to you. He was good to all of us which isnt surprising because we have all been very good this year!
It's that time again, I have deleted my "blog" over the past 12 months in order to start again on a fresh page, so here we go!
It has been a busy build up to Christmas, we had a family get together at our place this year for the first time in a long while. My side of the family this year, my Mum, my Sister and her husband and my nephew and his partner joined us for a fabulous havoc ham, salad and a few bubbles to cool us down!
The only people missing were my niece, her hubby and their two gorgeous children who are over in America studying at the moment.
The fabulous Skype made it possible for us to share in the opening of presents and our tears were mostly happy ones but they are sorely missed...
My hint for this post is:
Bring your laptop or ipad with you when you come to stay at Queenstown Motel Apartments so you can use the free wi fi we offer you to skype to your hearts content! It is a great way to communicate with your friends and family all over the world.
Talk to you again soon,
All the best,

We have been very busy and have had fabulous guests stay with us. We are thrilled with their comments about our complex, one man told me recently he looked all around his room asking himself what we could have done better and decided there was nothing! He said we were the best accommodation he had stayed in and he has travelled a lot. He made my day. Having wonderful people stay is one of the many things I love about my work. Even though we have lived in Queenstown for over forty years, I still stand at my bedroom window every morning and look out over our beautiful lake and mountains, thinking we are very lucky to be able to live here, doing something we love in a town we love in a country we love!
Hmm, getting a tad emotional there, I had better carry on with the latest news from Queenstown Motel Apartments...
We are so pleased to be recommended again in both the Lonely Planet and the Rough Guide. Travellers trust both these publications because the information in them is provided by fellow travellers based on their experiences, not by paid advertising.
I would like to say a big thank you to those of you who are making the time and writing such nice things about us on www.tripadvisor.com. Like the lonely planet and rough guide, people trust these reviews and they are certainly well read.
To those of you who have emailed us and sent us some fabulous photos,I am glad you loved being here and I hope to see you again soon.
As I ask you all when you leave, please tell all your friends about us!
We have recently made our original Alpha Wing available to book on line too. These rooms are qualmark rated as a 3 star and enjoyed by those travellers looking for a cheap and cheerful alternative to backpackers.
PACK YOUR BATHING SUIT...
We have a fantastic Community Swimming Pool and Gymnasium at the Queenstown Events Centre. It is the best facility our town has in my opinion! It doesnt matter what your age or stage is, you will enjoy it. Much as I love the Lake, it has never been warm enough to swim in for me.
When you want great quality, good value, awesome hospitality and convenient motels in Queenstown, we are the perfect place to stay!
We look forward to meeting you and helping you enjoy your time in Queenstown. We can book your activities and help you select a fabulous restaurant too so all your experiences are wonderful ones...
