We booked 7 nights here for the first week of our honeymoon. It was perfect for us being just out of town a bit, with amazing views of the Shoot Over River. First thing we were treated with was an amazing welcome from Jen at front reception. Then the manager Andrew gave us a tour of the facilities and showed... More

After 19th Oct 2014 this hotel will no longer be managed by Distinction. Because of that fact, I won't comment at all on the staff or service because they won't be there if you're planning to stay in the future. What will still be there is the unloved looking tennis court, the rooms with random broken things and the overall... More

Overall this is a really nice, independent hotel with much to recommend it. The staff are helpful, warm and friendly and there are many little touches which put it above the homogenous and often impersonal chains. Free wifi, a large selection of DVDs to be taken up to the room (or the "cinema" for a private viewing with complimentary popcorn)... More

It's rare you find staff super enthused personally for the facilities and rooms on offer. We were greeted by the bubbly Hanna who took us on a personal tour of the hotel before walking us to our rooms. We instantly became friends and she really helped make our time in Queenstown absolutely wonderful! Our room was a great size and... More

My partner and I stayed here for the weekend.

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.
