The hotel staff were very friendly and accomadating. The style of furniture is "old world charm" but very homey and comfortable and warm. Just a 15 min drive to Coronet ski fields which is great and bus stop right out the front

After staying at this hotel for 5 nights, I must say we left feeling rather underwhelmed. The hotel is in much need of a touch up (or two) in regards to furnitures and fixtures - for example; - Bed is unusually short in length (I am only average in height but found my feet off the edge of the bed)...

This is a very nice place but could do with a refurbishment. The location wasn't brilliant because it was a 5 minute drive to the center. But you do get a superb view of the shot over river but as I said it dose need a bit of modernising.

This place was everything we had hoped for. Slightly out of town for a more quiet trip but only a five minute drive into town. Close to heaps of good walks and attractions like Coronet Peak and Lake Hayes. We booked the cinema on the first night which is a funky little room that has five leather lounge suites! We... More

We had a couple of nights here and it wasn't too bad, but if they want to promote it as a better class of hotel ( 41/2 star ?) it really needs a spruce up, its getting pretty dated. Staff were nice, quite helpful, breakfast was ok, we had dinner on one night and that was ok as well. The... More

We were invited to a 70-person wedding recently, and since this hotel was where the reception was to be held, we opted to stay here too. It is in a very nice location, but the only downside is that it is a 10 - 15 mins drive into Queenstown city (so a car is necessary). Our room was more than... More

Everything was amazing, except the rooms realllly need some refurbishing..Way out dated. Other than that, the view was amazing.. Reception ppl are so sweet and welcoming. I forgot my necklaces in the bathroom when we checked out, and they called us to let us know! I didn't even notice they were missing. So glad we experienced amazing snow!
