4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Phase III of our honeymoon. Clean room, comfortable, helpful staff, close to the centre and airport. Basically an overall great experience. This is on the HILTON premises and just opposite the Main Hilton Hotel. Its location is amazing and has its own water taxi connecting you to the main city every hour. So overall a great experience

Was in Queenstown for 5 weeks with work and stayed here for 2 of them. For starters The hotel is very nice the location and views are awesome and will be even better when all the construction is completed. The construction did not cause any problems at all just a big Rock wall is all I'm talking about. The rooms... More

The hotel it's located near to the airport at 10 km from the city center or at five minutes by boat.There it's a taxi boat who came at every 30 minutes and it cost $10 per person one way. The rooms are very nice and they offer a beautiful panorama over the river and the city.The only bad thing about... More

I don't mind paying a higher price when the food is exceptional. I ate here for breakfast each morning, the range was fresh and delicious. I also ate dinner twice in the restaurant and was very happy with the service and qualify. Very happy.

Awesome atmosphere, great location, cleaniness of the room - comfortable beds, clean bathroom etc. Service shuttle to town and back. Just one thing is to recommend offering Free shuttle service pick up/drop off to the airport would be ideal.

This hotel is in a great location, but their views are severely impacted by bridge construction and it has no amenities , you need to cross the street to use The Hilton Hotel's services for food, pool, business center. Our service from the Doubletree was poor, 35 minutes for ice to be delivered, 2 days our glasses and coffee cups... More

They call it a basic room but more than basic indeed. The parking is free Internet is 15nz It's about a 5 min drive from... More

Our room was just perfect, we got the view of the lake and the CBD. The bed was comfortable, enough space in the kitchen for us to hold our grociers, and to cook. The bathroom was clean when we check in, but it feel a bit small for two people. Great customer services, with a friendly team to offer us... More
