3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here in July for 5 nights. As this was our first visit to Queenstown we were pleased with the location and staff service. Everything was easily a few minutes walking distance and the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are also quite clean. Unfortunately that's where the good points end. The rooms are out dated and lacked... More

Hotel is in a great location across from the lake and close to all restaurants and bars. If skiing the shuttle for the slopes is only a short 5 minute walk. Staff are friendly. Only negative is that it feels a bit dated in decor especially the corridors.

We had a great experience at this hotel. Probably its greatest asset is its location. You can easily and quickly walk anywhere in downtown Queenstown from here, making it a great place from which to explore the city. The customer service was also great throughout. The activity desk guy was super friendly and they gave us a nice gift for... More

If you are looking for a place located close to the Queenstown "action" this is the place to be. It is adjacent to the Earnslaw Wharf and very handy to everything. We had a lake view room but were on the first floor, so had to walk out onto the balcony to catch a glimpse of the lake. Not a... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and the experience was definitely a mixed bag. While the location is excellent and the staff extremely friendly and responsive - the check in was quick, all requests to house keeping and room service were tended to quickly - there are a number of aspects that could be much better. The buffet breakfast is... More

I booked 3 nights here on points and I am IHG platinum. I got upgraded to a lake facing room w/ balcony on the 2nd floor. The staff here was amazing. The concierge and the front desk made several phone calls on my behalf regarding tours and contacting the airport as my wife forgot her IPad. The room was good... More

We stayed four nights in this well located hotel. The architecture is one that incorporates two wings with one in the front and a second that is 'stepped' backwards up the hill. This means that you really want to book a room in the front part of the hotel - ideally from the 3rd floor upwards, or the top two... More

The hotel is located very close to the lake front and a very easy walking distance to central business district. The room was large and comfortable but not over the top. All staff were very friendly and helpful and valet parking took away the worry of where to park the car. I recommend when booking, ask for either a lake... More

Well located hotel next to the lake but has a road and row of buildings right in front of it so rooms on the first few floors have poor views. As this place is one of the most beautiful in the world you must get a room with a view. Many people on our tour complained. Rooms on the lower... More
