Enjoyed our stay here - they have everything you need as a base for taking in the activities around Queenstown (assuming you have your own transportation). The shared kitchen and lounge areas were huge and very impressive. Most restaurants don’t have a kitchen like this one. You have to pay for wifi but it is only $2 for 250mb so... More

We had booked a lodge studio and were given a ground floor room next to a building access point which is used at all times of the day and can get noisy from guests returning late. The room was equipped with a accessible bathroom, and patio doors which led out to a table and chairs. There was no view from... More

As a long term guest working in Queenstown I find this place is fantastic. The rooms are modern, warm and have everything needed. There is a good balance between being able to be social, and having your own private space. Each room has a balcony, most rooms have a view (mine is especially stunning) and the staff are friendly. Each... More

A nice lodge situated 5-10mins drive out of town. We had a ground floor room with a nice courtyard view. Friendly staff and rooms where clean, with a small bar fridge and kitchen sink for basic meal prep in addition to ensuite. Good facilities with a large industrial kitchen and lounge available for use. A few frustrations would be the... More

Hi Liz, Thanks very much for your review on your stay at Shotover Lodge. The mobile phone coverage can be difficult at times as we are located a bit out of central Queenstown in the mountains. Shotover Lodge offers Wifi, with low options ($2 for 250mb) and higher options such as the 1GB that you mentioned. As we have some... More

Nice place if you are on the car. The Hotel is located near the Arthur's pass, ~ 6km from Qt city centre. Very competitive price, especially comparing to highly overpriced Qt centre. Had a really nice and big room. Clean, all facilities ok.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my family. The room was superbly cleaned and very comfortable. The view from this place is very tranquil and relaxing. The location is very convenient with just a short 5 mins drive to Queenstown city centre that offers a lot of activities. To make it short, this place is very convenient and I'm... More

Reasonably priced. Basic room. Close to Queenstown. Close to shot over jet. Would benefit from free wireless internet. Aim to book at least on the first floor as rooms are more private. No noise from road

The difference between good accommodation owners and GREAT owners can often be learned without even staying there! I own a small mountain guiding company based in Wanaka and I booked 2 rooms for 2 nights at Shotover Lodge for our clients. I have never used Shotover Lodge previously for client accommodation. My booking was made directly with the lodge many... More

Had just one night but great value. Ground floor suite with Queen and bunk beds. No views but well worth the stay. Great for a family with small kids and just a 4 minute or so drive to town along picturesque road. Communal commercial grade kitchen was excellent for cook up of NZ lamb and setting very relaxing. Rate highly.
