As we sit in the lobby I am very proud to give this hotel 5 stars due to the price and friendliness we have experienced. We did not expect our 5 night experience here to be this good. We really needed this time to be special and we feel very blessed by our stay here. Well done Team! Our most... More

It's a very cozy stay in Double Tree Kawarau Hotel. The staff is very friendly and the welcome cookies are so delicious and impressive. The room I stayed is clean and modern designed, and it has a kitchenette with refrigerator and electric stove. Since the Hotel is very close to New World supermarket and Remarkables Town Centre Shopping Centre, guests... More

We enjoyed the stay at Double tree, Staff were helpful and happy. Everything was easy and especially the bar staff in the Hilton next door were very accommodating. One thing to be aware of with Queenstown hotels of which double it is the same, The charge they take against your card at the beginning of the stay is not removed... More

Situated on the other side of the river opposite Queenstown with the construction happening when we stayed made it slightly inconvenient to get to. The view was amazing, the staff offered us a warm cookie on arrival which was a nice touch. Everything did cost additional including the wifi which should really be a free service IMO. Had a couple... More

the fire alarm went off at 0715 on 03/12/2014 We had to evacuate the building. No consideration was given. re: making a later check-out time, a free breakfast, some other compensation for the inconvenience. There is a step down into the bathroom, not striped or otherwise noted that is dangerous. the towel warmer is very close to the toilet.

Beautiful Hotel, wonderful staff, amazing location. Would definitely stay here again. Handy to airport and quick access to Queentown via water taxi or coach. Very peaceful and relaxing with access to lovely walks around the lakeside. Didn't want to leave!

Comfortable, satisfactorily located, great service, excellent food but, although there is a wardrobe for hanging some clothes in, there are no drawers or shelves to unload suitcase contents into ie one has to "live out of the suitcases".

I was the guest of the day and got an upgrade. Everything was perfect. Welcome cookies, free breakfast, friendly staff with real interest in talking to us. The rooms are amazing, extremely silent. Impecable bathroom. Modern and tasteful design. The breakfast was superb. Lake view and ducks that I'll never forget. Thank you!

Stayed at Double tree by Hilton Queenstown for my birthday. Booked on a website so a very good deal. Our room was facing the back so not a great view but we had the views everyday whilst we explored the area so not a problem. Bed was awesome. Had breakfast in the Hilton which was amazing!
