The Good: The location of this hotel is excellent. It's only a 3 minute walk from the hotel to the main drag in Queenstown. Staff is knowledgable regarding local cuisines and activities, and goes the extra mile to make sure that your stay is enjoyable. The Bad: The rooms have very poor air circulation because the hotel does not have... More

The rooms spacious but bare bones dorm like decor. if you happen to stay on a warm/hot day there is no ac. I had no idea. One night I couldn't sleep and almost... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel based on the rating for three nights and although the staff were very friendly the hotel was of poor standard and the hotel costs were extremely over priced for the substandard accommodation. In fact the staff informed me that they rarely get any repeat business, so it does bring into question how... More

We stayed just one night here in a delux room, with breakfast and free wifi. It was quite an expensive choice for us on this trip but it was in a great location in the town which is a tourist must-do if you are in New Zealand. That said, Queenstown is an expensive place and we felt we had chosen... More

We arrived at Queenstown, Central Ridge Boutique hotel after a gruelling 7 hours drive from Punakaiki, stopping once only at Lake Matheson for a quick lunch and coffee. By the time I stepped into the hotel, I was closed to being a zombie as never had I driven for so long before in my 15 years of driving. The host... More

Thank you for staying with us and leaving this great review. We are so glad to hear that you got a good rest after your decent attempt to break the record in long-distance driving. We are looking forward to seeing you in winter - this time perhaps with some mulled wine on arrival instead of cakes. Best wishes from Adriana,... More

Stayed here for our honeymoon while in Queenstown. The staff were so nice as they gave us excellent restaurant recommendations and helped us book dinners. The breakfast was a nice bonus included in the price. While not directly in the center of the city its only a 5 minute walk to everything and about half the cost of other hotels.

Stayed here last week for one night. Close to town centre, only walking distance. First plus point. Check in was smooth, friendly and helpful staff. Large spacious room, with lounge area. Nice, warm and comfortable bed. 5 star standard of cleanliness. Bathroom also spacious with all basic amenities. Will definitely recommend to others.👍👍

Thanks so much for having us. Right from when we walked in the door, we were greeted and made to feel welcome. The Receptionist explained everything to us about the room, after hours security etc. She asked us if we knew the shortcut to town and if we had any questions.
