- Oaks ShoresOct 21, 2013
Not surprisingly the Oaks Shores is right on the shore of Lake Wakatipu. Located about five minutes by car from town this place is a bit out of the action. Being one of the newer properties in town, these rooms still feel brand new and most modern. Taking advantage of the topography the hotel is spread out down the shore so that nearly every room gets a fantastic view of the mountains and lake. Most rooms have massive balconies that could easily host a dinner party of twenty - so this place is ideal if you intend on making friends in Queenstown. There are multiple rooming options to suit everything from couples to families and beyond. The property is right on the popular lakeside walking track that brings you right into town, so if you're feeling energetic you can be in town after a pleasant thirty minute walk.Recommended for:

Oak Shores is located a few kilometres out of the centre of town – and ideal option if you’ve got your own wheels. The rooms are of a stylish, contemporary design in muted beiges, coppers and chocolate browns – perhaps a little too much brown for my liking, but maybe that’s just me! Larger apartments are spacious and modern with all the amenities you need. There’s also a communal courtyard and BBQ area if you’re feeling social. If time and budget allows it’s worth upgrading to a room with a view for the views here are like no other – stretching across the lake to the Remarkable mountains beyond. The gym isn’t much to write home about though – give it a miss and go for a run or walk on the lakeside track found right outside your hotel door instead. It’s what all the locals do!
