I agree with all the other reviewers that this hotel is very nice. The staff are very friendly and will help in making your stay as comfortable as possible. The room we stayed in was big with a nice comfy bed, electric blankets, free wifi, very effective heating and a massive bath. It is a short walk to the town... More

Central Ridge is a place that treats you like home. It was nice to be home in Queens town New Zealand. Aile was helpful with planing adventures and choosing Restaurants. If you head this way be sure to see Milford Sound by air it is an amazing 45 minuets.

I loved the Central Ridge Hotel even before I arrived. I emailed the owner with questions which she graciously answered. When I thanked her for her advice she responded that I will arrive as a guest but leave as a friend and she was right. The hotel is a very short and pleasant walk to the center of town. My... More

What a fantastic weekend. The Proprieter is extrodinarily knowledgeable about the area. If she makes a recommendation carefully consider it. We found her remarkable. She made several suggestions of activities and they were always spot on. Breakfast and Canapes were outstanding and the message is not to be missed. The lounge downstairs was amazing, next time we will spend more... More

The breakfast was delicious, the host was lovely, the facilities were excellent! The room was clean and spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. Close to the centre of the town, only a few minutes of walking. I would highly recommend this place. I loved it!

Similar to other reviewers experiences, no one was really around when we showed up. The host did not speak english very well and it was hard to communicate. We were not given am explanation of any...

No one was around when we arrived in the early evening. After much hello-ing a young man appeared and showed us into an office furnished with a shabby, sheet draped sofa. Not a good start. Everything got better after that, our host was very helpful, the room was fine and breakfast was excellent. It's location is perfect , a short... More

Great hospitality by the owner, Ailey and her family, Yelia and Molly. Owner owned and operated businesses never fail to amazed me as they take extra care and passion in their business as compared to an over commercialized/franchise businesses. Although moonlight room doesn't come with a glass ceiling to view the moon, my room has a great view of the... More
