"I stayed at castle cliff and it was the best place I've stayed at in a long time. Very well thought out and honestly you don't need to leave. Everything you want is at your disposal, the best part was waking up and having a cuppa watching the sunlight hit the mountains and getting ready for an amazing day in a tranquil part of New Zealand. Highly suggest staying here at castle cliff."

"Castle Cliff is simply stunning! Perfectly situated to enjoy stunning views of Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables. Waking to the morning sun and relaxing in the spa in the evenings you simply never want to leave. Margaret and Abi ensured everything was perfectly set up on arrival. There is so much space available and the facilities at Castle Cliff are too numerous to list but the sauna, games and entertainment room, including pool table and bar were special highlights."

"I stayed at the Castle Cliff Lodge in Queenstown through Relax it's Done. Margaret and the team ensured our stay was very comfortable, right down to the little details - lights on when we arrived, chocolates in the kitchen etc. The house itself blew us away. It had all the amenities you could ask for, the media room was amazing, the in-house sauna and steam showers were well used and the views of the place are simply outstanding. Everything was very comfortable and well thought out. There is nothing I would suggest to add to this place. You have to stay here!"
