When travelling it is always a perfect opportunity to understand where a country is on its customer experience journey. It always you to assess how important customer service is versus short term financial gain. Be cautious in booking to stay with Lakeside Motel as customer service isn't yet in their vocabulary.

Fantastic location close to the middle of Queenstown, beautiful views from the lakefront rooms. Staff friendly and helpful. Beds were not comfortable, and seem quite old. Shower temperature was very inconsistent and very weak pressure. Being on the main road in to town, the car noise is noticeable.

Lovely welcome from reception staff. Room was very basic and quite noisy overnight, a very thin single pillow and a lack of toilet paper. Electric blanket and heater though to warm if needed. Easy walk to the town centre and lovely lake views.

Nothing flash, but the brilliant location makes up for it and it has all the facilities that you need. A bit noisy as was close to the street but worked for what we needed. Would stay again.

My friend and I, were very happy as it was close to the city centre, clean room, staff were efficient as we requested certain items for the room and were there in a few minutes. The beds were very comfortable and lady at the front desk offered us an upgrade and they were very helpful

Fabulous location, amazing, friendly and helpful staff. Amenities not so great unfortunately, would rate it as a very low 3 star. Staff are great and make up for it.

Great location and price

It's hard to find accommodation in Queensland that you don't need to take another mortgage for, but this place is well priced, and only a short stroll to all the action. Literally, only a few minutes walk. The views from the rooms are amazing. So, it's a few years old but it's warm and comfortable. Also spacious rooms. I rate it and will definately stay again.
