I booked and paid for accommodation at this hotel months before we flew to New Zealand. I arrived at the hotel straight from the airport with my family only to find the hotel had been sold and was being renovated. Fortunately, the new manager was on site and took pity on us. He accommodated us in another property. Wotif took... More

We stayed for a night after 7 days of travel in a campervan and found this a luxury! Comfortable beds with electric blankets, kitchenette, spacious living room with an extra bed. The view was awesome as well. The location is slightly away from town and we either took a bus (only about 5min ride but do check the time-table for... More

This motel is fine for a short visit to Queenstown, some of the 'studios' have lake views but also overlook the main road into town from Te Anau. The rooms / bathroom / kitchen area were clean and well equipped to enable simple meals to be prepared. There a free spa pool which can be booked by the half hour... More

to Dave&Chris. Thanks for mentioning our kitchenette facilities. Many customers are not aware that our hotel also has many rooms with kitchenette. Great that you used the spa and pool. We have a sauna also and they are all free for guest use. We have ample free carparking. We always advise that walk to town is 40 minutes. More

I agree with the other reviews that the rooms are a little dated but they certainly have everything that you need. We had a 2 night stay and were very happy with allocated room. It was spacious, comfortable, clean with lovely views. Being out of town was preferable to us as we prefer to be away from the noisy pubs... More

I stayed here for 5 nights. This was one of the least expensive hotels in the Queenstown area. For what I paid, I felt the hotel was great value for money. Sure the rooms might be a bit dated, but mine was clean and comfortable. The staff were really friendly. I ate in the restaurant 4 nights out of 5... More

This would not normally be our pick of accommodation in Queenstown, however our daughter was living two minutes up the road, so we decided to stay near her rather than in town. The room was dated, but clean and tidy and had a very comfy bed. Staff were friendly. The America's Cup was on at the time and the restaurant... More

The hotel or motel is beautiful, but far from the centre. For people who like to walk 45 minutes, otherwise you take the bus, stop nearby the hotel, 6 dollars going and back. The hotel has a swimming pool, a spa, a bar and a very good restaurant.

Had a great night here. Queenstown is our favourite place in NZ having visited here previously. The weather was kind and the accommodation, although in need of some updating, was very good. The Sherwood is a little way out of the main shopping precinct and is perched up on the hill so is relatively quiet. My only criticism is the... More

Great to hear that you had a great night at our place.Sorry to hear about the parking critics. All our parking is in the hotel courtyard and unallocated to rooms, due to the many first floor rooms.It is however never more then a short stroll across the parking area to any room, not more tan 50 meter.
