Our recent stay at Peppers in Queenstown was amazing. On arrival freshly baked bread in our room was a special touch and the view from our 9th floor 2 bedroom apartment was one of the best I have ever seen. The heated floors in the bathrooms were very nice given that it was so cold outside! The fireplace worked well... More

Stayed for five nights in mid-June, just before the Winter Festival. We had a twin studio room with separate living area and bedroom. Only being two of us, the room was spacious enough - living area had both a couch and dining table. The heating in the room was amazing - nothing better than coming out of 4/5 degrees back... More

I've stayed at Peppers Beacon Queenstown with my family on 3 previous occasions without concern, apart from a bit of room noise from other apartments at night...Nothing that would warrant comment...Queenstown is, as you know, a fun-loving town. However, on a recent stay at this hotel, my family was subjected to a near all night assault of obscene language, loud... More

Peppers Resorts are suppose to be a high quality accomodation but we received the worst service ever on two occasions. The cleaners left wet sheets in our room obviously forgotten and there was past occupants undies still in our room!! After numerous times of explaining my food allergies I still received egg in my dinner after waiting over an hour... More

I read the mixed reviews on Peppers Beacon in Queenstown and was unsure about what to think until I arrived. Wow, wow, wow! I booked a Garden view room, it should have been called a garden/mountain range view room. I couldn't have asked for anything more. It was a 2 bedroom suite with kitchenette, it was so perfect for my... More

We arrived at 9am after picking a flight to coinside with the early check in I had asked for and were turned away and told to come back at 1pm. Our room was large and quite cold although very clean and well stocked. The staff seemed constanly bored, I dont think I saw one of them smile the whole time... More

Beautiful warm fire, comfy sofa and all appliances. It was great to have a washing machine and dryer in the room and full siize fridge. The... More

Booked a lake View suite. Very large room with amazing views. Great kitchen and bathroom. Great breakfast choices too. All very good but house keeping let the team down. Booked a cot for our baby and gave us no cot top sheet. Just a bkanket! Not good enough. The girl that delivered the cot could not put it together- so... More

First of all the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The smell of cooking seemed to go throughout the "hotel" which I presume is because the apartments are self catering. This is a five star apartment hotel which is different from a five star hotel. Our room which was called a hotel room was very small and noisy. We... More

This is the second time we have stayed here. Location and amenities are excellent. It is a great place to stay with extended family. We were a family of 6 - our 2 kids and my parents.
