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. The Deluxe suites are also popular with views over the rooftops to the lake an surrounding peaks, lovely at this time of year with snow caps. Thanks for your comments on the food as well,... More

Breakfast was excellent. Our room was very comfortable... More

We only stayed one night at The Spire (unfortunately). They were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. We have a 3 year old and he was given the luxury treatment as well with his own comfortable bed in our spacious room. We ate room service from the hotel restaurant, No. 5 Church Lane, which was delicious. I definitely recommend a stay... More

Thanks for your feedback Bridget, great to hear from locals who are enjoying the experience as much as visitors from further afield. Families are well catered for at The Spire with interconnecting suites giving a spacious villa effect, and we haven't forgotten about the little ones when deigning our new menus either! Hope to see you again next time you... More

It is a wonderful little sophisticated hotel that will take care of all your needs, including diet. They are like family in that they make you feel like home . The staff is very personal and remember how you like your coffee and what you drink . They could not do enough for us .

I couldn't imagine a more perfect place to stay in Queenstown than this beautiful hotel. The room was spacious and gorgeous and had the most comfortable bed, and an amazing designer chair and ottoman in front of the fireplace for reading and relaxing.

We are so happy we chose spire in Queenstown. It's right in the middle of town so we didn't need a car. All the staff could not have been more helpful. The decor and quality of fittings and our bed was excellent.
