What people say

"Kamana Lakehouse is a 4 star hotel located in Fernhill, Queenstown and is the highest altitude accommodation in town. This boutique hotel has absolutely stunning views out across the lake and The Remarkables mountain range, offering a peaceful retreat in the adventure capital of the world. Their budget-friendly rooms are called 'Kamana King/Twin' and 'Remarkables King/Twin' and are set up in a motel style with rooms facing the car park. If your budget allows, opt for a 'Tahuna' or 'Lakeview' room. Note: From April 2024 onwards, neighbouring areas in close proximity to the hotel are currently undergoing extensive development work. Our hotel and facilities remain fully operational, however we do wish to share that guests could possibly experience the sound impact during the hours of Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm. Our Lakeview Luxe and Tahuna Lakeview room categories are situated adjacent to the development and may therefore have their views impacted at times."
"An inspring place with iconic views! In a quiet location, just a 5 minute drive from the center and a 5 minute stroll from the start of some hiking tracks. The floor-to-ceiling-windows offer breathtaking views on the lake and the cozy atmosphere and beautiful interior make for a relaxing place. It features a complete spa and wellness center and an in-house restaurant."
"This hotel is a little further out but worth the extra steps to get into town (and definitely still walkable). The modern but rustic style with the amazing views over the lake and the mountains are one of the many reasons you should choose to stay here! Feel tucked away but still close to everything in Queenstown to explore. "

Mentioned in these guides

This guide is for both Islands in New Zealand (the north and the south) for first time visitors who are taking their camper van throughout the islands with a few days in Auckland and Queenstown. It's a three week itinerary and includes the arrival and departure flight days (and has some suggestions for these days as well). It will go through (in detail!) every location we visited, the activities we did, the sites we camped up at, the restaurants we ate at (in between our camper van meals), what we learned about New Zealand and the camper van life whilst we were there, and other suggestions of what to do in the areas so you can alter your plans to fit what you want. Note that this itinerary includes two different camper van rental locations on each island, and flying between the two islands. But you could easily do the majority of this itinerary and just switch up a few days to drive between the two islands! This itinerary does have a decent amount of driving but its because we really wanted to PACK our itinerary to see as much of New Zealand and it's beautiful scenery whilst we were here. The main locations touched on are listed here (and we highly recommend all of them): -> Auckland (& Waiheke Island) -> West Coast North Island (Black Sand Beaches / Mt Taranaki) -> Tongariro Alpine Crossing -> Coromandel Peninsula -> Queenstown -> Milford Sound -> Wanaka (& Roys Peak) -> Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park -> Dunedin -> The Catlins If you're looking for a detailed guide that outlines your plan for each and every day, look no further!
