Historical Traveler Reviews Glebe Apartments Queenstown
First, one of the best locations in Queenstown, no too busy, no too noisy, minutes walking to shops, cafes and restaurants. The apartment has everything you need, spotless clean, good beds, safe, cosy and a great touch of luxury. We stayed 4 days with our 2 kids age 5 and 2, absolutely safe, the kids love it. It feels like home TV's in every room. Surely we will come back this is one of the more excellents apartments we have ever stayed 5 star!!
Als Erstes: Eine der besten Lagen in Queenstown. Nicht zu belebt, nicht zu laut; ein paar Minuten Fußweg zu Geschäften, Cafés und Restaurants. Das Apartment bietet alles, was das Herz begehrt: blitzsauber, gute Betten, sicher, gemütlich und ein Hauch von Luxus. Wir verbrachten mit unseren zwei 5 und 2 Jahre alten Kindern fünf Tage hier. Absolut sicher und die Kinder fanden es toll. Man fühlt sich wie zuhause und in jedem Zimmer steht ein Fernseher. Wir kommen ganz sicher wieder. Eines der besten Apartments in denen wir je übernachtet haben - 5 Sterne!!
Innanzitutto, questo hotel ha una delle posizioni migliori a Queenstown, in una zona non troppo rumorosa e trafficata, a pochi minuti a piedi da negozi, caffè e ristoranti. Il nostro appartamento aveva tutto il necessario ed era pulitissimo, sicuro, accogliente, con ottimi letti e uno stupendo tocco di lusso. Ci siamo fermati 4 giorni con i nostri due bimbi di 5 e 2 anni. L'hotel era assolutamente sicuro e i bambini l'hanno adorato. Ci sentivamo come a casa, c'era una TV in ogni stanza. Ritorneremo sicuramente perché abbiamo trovato uno degli appartamenti più belli che ci sia mai capitato in un hotel 5 stelle.
Tout d'abord, c'est l'un des meilleurs endroits dans Queenstown, il n'y a pas trop d'allées et venues et ce n'est pas trop bruyant, à quelques minutes à pied des magasins, cafés et restaurants. Cet appartement a tout ce qu'il faut, il est impeccable, avec de bons lits, un bon niveau de sécurité, il est douillet, avec quelques touches de luxe extrêmement agréables. Nous y avons passé 4 jours avec nos 2 enfants de 2 et 5 ans, on y est parfaitement en sécurité et les enfants l'adorent. On a l'impression d'être chez soi, il y a la télé dans toutes les chambres. Nous y retournerons assurément, c'est l'un des meilleurs appartements où nous ayons jamais séjourné et nous lui donnons 5 étoiles !!
Marvellous Place, Lousy Service
6 of us have booked a 3 bedroom apartment for 3 nights and got upgraded to a 4 bedroom 3000 sq ft apartment for 2 nights. The apartment itself was marvellous, excellent location with walking distance to city center and private covered carpark, very very spacious with modern furniture and fully equipped kitchen.
However, the services was extremely poor. We can feel the discrimination against Asian tourists by the reception lady named Sue. Her attitude and service towards us was very unattentive. She was unwilling to call the toll free weather check phone for our paragilding event and did not try her best endeavour to book handgilding for us. Absolutely disappointed about the service!
Nous ne voulions plus en partir
Je suis allée au Glebe avec mon mari et notre fille de 13 ans du 1er au 10 janvier 2007. Nous avions réservé un appartement de 2 chambres avec vue sur le lac, mais avons eu la chance d'en avoir un tout en haut pour le même prix, génial ! Chambres et salles de bains très spacieuses et luxueuses. Très propre, le ménage étant fait tous les jours (et Dieu sait si je suis difficile). Grande cuisine toute équipée (nous nous faisions notre petit déjeuner chaque jour, et aussi parfois le dîner, ce qui nous a permis d'économiser beaucoup d'argent), coin salle à manger et salon ouvrant sur une grande véranda sous les toits, avec une belle vue sur la montagne et le lac.
Le personnel était très sympa et nous a bien aidés dans le choix de nos activités et pour réserver diverses activités. C'est un hôtel assez récent apparemment, donc tout est moderne et en bon état. Nous aimerions beaucoup y retourner l'hiver pour faire du feu dans la cheminée et avoir le chauffage par le sol (après une journée de ski, cela doit être un vrai bonheur).

My husband, our 13-year old daugther and I stayed at 'The Glebe' from 1 - 10 January 2007. We had booked a 2-bedroom lakeview apartment but were lucky enough to get a free upgrade to a penthouse (Wow!). Very spacious, luxurious rooms and bathrooms. Very clean as serviced daily (and I AM fussy). Large, fully equipped kitchen (we've saved quite a lot of money by cooking our own breakfast daily and also some dinners), dining area and living area open to a wide rooftop veranda with beautiful mountain- and lake views. Staff was very friendly and helpful with selecting and booking activities. The hotel apparently is quite new so everything is modern and well maintained. We would love to come back during the winter season to experience the fire place in the living area and the underfloor heating (must be bliss after a day of skiing).
Stayed here from 6 Dec - 10 Dec 2006 for our wedding anniv. (we were without the kids and wanted somewhere special and 5*)
We had booked a 2 bedroom apartment and on arrival we had been upgraded to a four bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment!
It was fabulous. Furnished beautifully, modern but homely, and so so spacious!!! Full kitchen, laundry room, 3 balconys and daily service. Wonderful view over to the lake and also over towards the gondolas. All the staff were incredibly friendly, and just a short 3 minute walk to town.... really! Great location.
Some units may not have views, with apartments looking onto a large internal courtyard area which has been well planted/paved. However don't let this put you off, the complex is well maintained, and quiet too. We had a fantastic stay at The Glebe Apartments and would highly recommend.

We spent four nights at the Glebe in Queenstown and we were lucky enough to be upgraded. The staff were so friendly and helpful, and our room was amazing. We almost wanted to stay in every day to enjoy the luxury rather than see the sights of beautiful Queenstown!! Our stay at the Glebe was a real highlight of our trip for all of the family and we can't wait to return next year.
Loved the Glebe
We were in Queenstown for 5 days over the new year and stayed at the Glebe. The location was wonderful. I had views over the lake and the accomdations were lovely apartments. We had a three bedroom unit that had three baths and a full kitchen. Queenstown is small so walking was easy. Shops, restaurants and the grocery stores were very near by. Ann who ran the office/building, was wonderful in helping to book excursions. Overall it was fantastic and we will definately go back should we have the chance.
Side not - we did a horseback ride through dart stables in glenorchy- beautiful!

... flew right over me as I sat on the rocks by the lake. I waved, but I don't think they saw me....
I still feel rough, and have spent most of the evening in bed. I also still feel really homesick and the fact that I spent an hour watching home movies from the 90s (which I had converted to electronic format from VHS ages ago) on my laptop did not help. I've seen a few familiar faces around the hostel (mostly people who had been on our bus, but had stayed extra nights ...
This morning, the rain was falling heavily on the roof, so we stayed in bed until it stopped! We've both caught a New Zealand cold so we didn't fancy getting up anyway! But the day soon took a turn for the better. The rain stopped, the clouds went away and the sun came out. Nikki's phone rang and it was none other than Peter from Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters telling us that there were two spots on a remarkable ...
... a rainy one. We chose to sleep in (which is a rare event indeed!) and enjoy a leisurely breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, toast and coffee. We explored the town center on foot. We walked through the beautiful garden area, complete with a fountain and lots of ducks. There was a nice memorial to the veterans who served and/or died in WWII. There were some nice shops and cafes. Near the park, we noticed that there was an ice rink. We went in and found out that it ...
... about it. I do the hill a second time and walk back into town and see I've missed the bus and I have another hour to wait, so I try thumbing again from town this time but with no luck, so I hop on the next bus and arrive in Queenstown.
I am surprised at how busy it is, there are people everywhere and it feels more like Wellington than a small town. I check into my backpackers and meet my Finnish friends Mervi & Juho for ...
... some more basic ones as we move on - should be interesting….We’ve had some amazing night skies - particularly out here in the middle of nowhere - no light pollution. Stars are clear as a bell - they seem so close, and good ol’ Orion all upside down poor fella - makes you realise how far away we are from home. We’re trying to do a little schoolwork at the same time but oh boy is it difficult to get those girls to motivate themselves. It’s ...
