Couldn't fault the location. our room had a narrow but lovely view of the lake. staff very very good. free onsite parking an important feature, and being close enough to walk to town for everything is critical because parking in queenstown is limited.

Hotels in Queenstown have many different terms to describe rooms that may have a slight lake or mountain glimpse-on our fifth visit to Queenstown, Peppers Beacon is the first where 'lake and mountain view' is absolutely genuine. We stayed in a one bedroom Lakeview apartment with sweeping views of the lake and the Remarkables-spectacular! Our one bedroom apartment was huge... More

Peppers is very impressive! The huge suite of rooms that we had was a corner room on the third floor that offered tons of windows and a balcony looking out onto Lake Wakatipu and Remarkables mountains. The room featured a full kitchen and laundry, 3 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, and a massive common area. All amenities were in top shape and... More
