From the staff to the rooms - this is our favorite place in Queenstown to stay! Alex on reception truly was amazing - even with a room change involved it wasn't a problem at all. She made our stay so nice. Fab cocktails in the bar, yummy breaky. This is the best locations in Queenstown, so central to everywhere.

I travel a lot for work, both domestically in the States and Internationally to APAC. Without question, The Spire may be the best, most well-appointed, hotel I've ever stayed in. Why? The staff was professional, without overbearing. Each of the 3-4 front desk staff remembered my name, what activities I had scheduled and completed, and even said hi at the... More

The Spire is a beautiful international boutique hotel,with just 10 rooms. Situated in the heart of Queenstown this would be considered one of the most personalized stays in the world. The attention, food and service are unrivaled. Certainly a must stay while New Zealand.

We (my sister and I) recently stayed at The Spire for 7 nights starting on 12 September. The only reason we choose this hotel was because of the gushing reviews we had read on Trip Advisor. Believe the hype. We absolutely loved our stay. The rooms are gorgeous and spacious with a fabulous fireplace and Eames chair. Our room had... More

It was good, maybe not great. The location is good, tucked away just on the periphery of the queenstown cbd and within easy walk of the waterfront. The room was very nice, comfortable and well appointed. The staff were friendly and helpful and as it's a boutique hotel the service is and personal. The elements which detracted from the stay...

Location, service, atmosphere. Everything was just perfect for our short stay in Queenstown. Loved the open plan suite, and the fireplace. Room service was delicious, could not have faulted it! Will definitely stay again.

Thank you for your feedback, much appreciated. The suites overlooking the church and mountains are my favourite as well, so peaceful and a great outlook.
