Why Marina chose Frankton
The property is handy to Queenstown central by a 5 minute taxi ride or a bus stand directly in front of the apartment complex. It is situated between Queenstown airport, Frankton shopping centre and downtown Queenstown.

Nice modern apartment
Good room with easy access and parking. When the bed is pushed together as a “king” it doesn’t quite sit right and the pillows were hard. Overall good stay for the price and location
Good guest to have stay at our property. All was easy with the booking & communication. Recommended to other hosts.
Modern hotel style room WITH 33 STEPS
A good place to rent if you dont need to be very close to town center and dont mind the steps and noise.
Spotless modern room, very comfortable. Great bathroom and shower. Includes a small refrigerator, coffer, tea and milk.
It is part of a large complex with parking. Regarding laundry facilites, there are 2 washing machines and 2 driers for all of the units so you may not have an option to do laundry. You will need a car or can take the bus to town center. Too far to walk.
As Marina noted, the unit is on the 2nd floor - 33 steps. You will need to walk up 16 steps and another 17 steps to get to the unit. A challenge if you have heavy luggage. Regarding the noise, we did not find it to be an issue in the evening. The noise subsided by 10pm. It did wake me up at 7am when the traffic was heavy and steady.
Marina was outstanding in communicating prior to check in and was reachable during our stay if needed.
Clean and great location
Was easy to find, perfect size, clean and great location.
Ideal for what I wanted.
Bus at front door for $2 ride into town.
Room was ok, beds were comfortable.
Room was ok but have stayed in much better places. Would have been good to have small table and chairs to sit at to eat, instead of 3 lounge chairs. The cupboard that holds toaster and crockery etc, difficult to open as there are no handles. Bit of a nuisance. Very hot room. Lots of road noise. Bathroom was nice. Beds were very comfortable. Close to everything we needed.
Hot, noisy, tiny room with only 2 extra sockets in the room
On a very busy road, if you open the windows to get air it is too noisy and if you close the windows it is too hot. Two fans are provided and no air con. Miserably hot to sleep or relax. The only place to plug in the electric kettle and toaster provided is next to the bed or in the bathroom. Housekeeping Is at an extra charge per clean no other place charges for this service. You never meet the host. Will never stay here again or recommend it to anyone. Asked host to move us to a cooler less noisy room and the request was denied.
The guests appeared new to HomeAway and didn't seem organised for check in as they didn't have the property address or access instructions sent much earlier and make contact when they arrived at the property. This is unusual but no problem so I provided verbal instructions. But then got the door number wrong and rung again. They also didn't appear to have read the property listing very well as many of the issues they complained about like the busy road, noise level, heat in summer, optional cleaning fee, that hosts can't meet guests on arrival is well described in the listing so guests can make informed choices. And finally they didn't appear to read the listing that we are private owners of just this room so have no ability to move them to a different room as we don't own any others. Instructions of how to keep the room cool during summer are also on the wall in the room as we are aware that the room gets quite warm. Hence have provided two fans are in the process of our body corporate upgrading all the single rooms in the whole apartment complex with air-conditioning in 2019.
