Great hotel and central to everything in Queenstown. Friendly staff and great bar area. Room/bathroom size on the smaller side, however wasn't in the room too much so it did not prove an issue. Bed/pillows were extremely comfortable and probably the best I've had in a hotel. Would recommend this hotel and I'd consider staying here again. However the only... More

Booked this hotel through hotels.com for a cheaper rate. Location was close to everything with on street parking (metered between 9-5pm) or valet. Comfortable and very friendly service. Small kids area with Wii/play station type game- near lounge. Lake views amazing although if you don't want to pay the extra the other side of hotel doesn't have a view but... More

Excellent hotel a minutes walk from Queenstown's centre. A beautiful outlook over Lake Wakatipu adds to the ambience of this Hotel. Staff are pleasant and willing to assist. I enjoyed my stay here and will definitely come back next year.

Stayed 5 nights. Very clean & comfortable hotel. Concierge desk extremely helpful as we booked all our ski shuttles, lift tickets and daily activities through the concierge. Nothing too much trouble. Secure ski storage excellent with easy access at all times. Laundry facilities useful but not much hanging space in rooms to dry out ski gear. Great views of lake... More

We stayed at the Novotel Queenstown Lakeside for three nights. Booked through Qantas Holidays website. We booked two rooms and requested they be side-by-side. The hotel arranged this and were happy to do so. Our rooms were on ground level (Room 105 & 107) which faces the road outside. There was everything to like about this hotel. The rooms were... More

Dear Teressa G It is disappointing to hear that you were only able to stay with us for 1 night - it is difficult to see what Queenstown has to offer in several nights let alone 1. Some of our Guest rooms do look out to the Queenstown gardens across the carpark but many look into our own beautiful gardens,... More

But fine for an overnight stay. It was clean and service at reception was great. Be warned that if you have a car with you there is only valet parking or pay for a coupon to park in the public car park just around the corner. Everything you need is nearby.
