This motel is excellent in all respects, friendliness and helpfulness of staff, a very comfortable double bed, a brilliant walk-in shower, lashings of hot water and you can park your vehicle right outside your room, no walking a long way from car park to your accommodation. Congratulations and thanks to James and Debbie Gardner and their staff for a wonderful... More

Great service, food, comfortable rooms and laundry. We got in late, chef stayed on and presented an awesome meal. Kids were catered for with a brilliant menu, that included steak- not a nugget in sight!

An older-style motel, but they all seem to be in Queenstown! The restaurant has great views, and a small children's playarea in the corner was a nice touch (its a large restaurant, so you could easily choose a table away from the kids!). Room had plenty of power-points and free wifi. Staff were very friendly and helpful - nothing at... More

The motel is OK not much has changed Since I worked there 25 years ago. Not expensive. Food Ordinary, staff good. There are better places in Queenstown. Motel is close to town that is a plus and the wilderness railway is close also.

We stayed here whilst passing through Queenstown. Service was friendly. The room was clean with lots of heaters which was good as it was very cold in Queenstown. Location is fine. Dinner was good value.

Cheap and Cheerful rooms, great WIFI and the best meals in Queenstown by a country mile - Have been travelling to the west coast for 20years and always enjoy my stays at the Silver Hills. Drinks are affordable and view from the dining room of the imposing Mt Owen are impressive.

As a corporate traveller, the Silver Hills Motel ticks all the boxes. Check in is quick, the accommodation is comfortable, friendly staff and the restaurant provides a variety of filling dishes. Great value for money and located a three minute walk into town. The service from the staff cannot be faulted; a positive reflection on the ethos of the proprietor.... More

Modest accommodation ,but all mod cons including heater, electric blanket, heated bathroom ,microwave ,Television and free wifi. A good restaurant on site serves good quality food.The bed was comfortable and I had a good nights sleep before venturing down to Strahan and to the West Coast Wilderness Railway in town. Zeehan is only about 40 kilometres away so Queenstown makes... More

We had a good room, clean and good a bed. No problems for an over night stay. Dinner and service in the Onsite restaurant was average. Sorry. All else was fine. Nice view too. Good place to jump on train next morning. Very short drive (couple of mins to train station for a quick breakfast before "all aboard"

Friends tell me that the Silver Hills Motel was the first motel in Queenstown. The now retro design of the main building and restaurant are perfect for the site and give diners a spectacular view of Queenstown's hills. Queenstown is a small mining town so don't expect luxury accommodation. I had requested a ground floor room for three people -... More
