I stayed here on a bushfire deployment for three nights so didn't pay. We stayed in the two-storey section which I think is older, but has high ceilings and massive floor to ceiling picture windows with stunning views of the mountains. The place reminded me of the big luxury hotels in alpine areas of NZ such as the Hermitage and... More

I stayed here for one night between visiting Strahan and Cradle Mountain. Due to it being the festive season, accommodation in Strahan was sold out so stayed here, this being the next town (40minutes drive along a tight, narrow and very windy road). I arrived feeling unwell and well before check in time – thankfully the manager was able to... More

Thanks for your very extensive review Shark Girl. I guess the main reason people select Queenstown is for the experience, the price and the location...let me explain that a little bit more. I guess if your only reason for travelling out tot he West Coast is to go on the cruise at Strahan, then you might as well pay the... More

As with last year our room was very comfortable, with additional touches that you certainly don't find in every hotel, for example, a ledge to rest your suitcase so you're not scrabbling around on the floor in order to get items in or out, a shower head that has an adjustable height facility, allowing for whatever height you are! All... More

get up early for your shower to ensure hot water, it had all gone by 07:30. The motel is pretty basic, but after travelling all day, a bed was all we needed. Queenstown is probably the least banging place on the planet ! We got there at 21:30 on a tuesday evening and everywhere was shut, including all the pubs... More

Good morning, Just a quick note regarding hot water. Very sorry about the lack of supply in the morning, but the hot water service connected to your units had gone down overnight. When reported in the morning the plumbers were called and it was replaced. Sorry but was completely unavoidable from our perspective, but I believe at 8am-ish you were... More

My partner and I booked into the silver hills motel for 1 night. We were running late so called the motel who we're very accommodating. Once we arrived we were treated to a large room with great facilities and an amazing view of nearby mt lyall. Best $125 we've ever spent! 😊

i always find these places tricky to rate. really it's about shifting my criteria to match the context. ordinarily i would not choose to stay at the silver hills motel if i was thinking about a holiday. so i shouldn't rate it based on the sort of holiday criteria i have in my head. i stayed there whilst on work...

This is my third stay here at silver hills and I have loved each visit! The room is comfortable with lovely views of the mountains and the restaurant serves amazing food.But it is the staff and owner that make this such a great place to stay. After a particularly heavy frost in winter, I left my room to find one... More

The Silver Hills Motel has long been a central part of the tourism infrastructure of this struggling mining town that has not yet fully exploited its wonderful tourism and cultural potential. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, have wi-fi, small microwave, kettle and towels/linen fresh and clean. The staff are helpful, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Queenstown is relatively...

We could see the snow capped mountain from our front door. The in house restaurant is also very good. Staff are friendly and efficient. Beds are comfortable and the rooms have good heating. Highly recommended.

The room is comfortable , no frills except for the wonderful mountain vista. Very snug in the storms which swept across from the West. We ate in the Silver Hills restaurant both nights, good food and generous serves. The restaurant also has a pretty spectacular outlook.
