Liked: Was beautiful being right next to the lake. Not being in the centre of Queenstown meant that it was a lot quieter. Kitchen was massive, great seeing as there were so many people staying there. Everything was really clean. Having hairdryers in the bathroom was very handy.

Disliked: Can't really think of anything at the moment.
