We stayed at another hotel for the first 4 nights of our trip but once we checked in at the Hilton for the remaining 3 nights, we wished we had done the whole of our trip at the Hilton. It is a beautiful hotel with everything you'd expect in terms of room decor, service, amenities, etc.
The location is a 15 minute drive or water taxi from central Queenstown so that may put off some people - however if you have a car or don't mind paying for taxis etc then don't let it deter you.
Our relaxation suite room was stunning, spacious, quiet and opened out onto a lovely garden right on the lakefront.
We had dinner at Wakatipu grill two nights, the food was fantastic, as was the service.
Only criticisms are: parking is a little far from the rooms (they do offer valet parking at $10 per day though), the options for lunchtime dining are very limited - the noodle bar looked great but was closed at lunch and the cafe offered a very limited range of food, we had some takeaway meals from the pub which were nice but the serving sizes were tiny. The pool is nice but it's indoors which didn't really work for our summer break when we wanted to be outside. The air con in the room was quite noisy.
All minor things and overall I would definitely recommend staying here.
Get a relaxation room but ask for one away from the restaurant & bar to avoid noise.

Thank you for sharing your comments regarding your recent stay at Hilton Queenstown.
I was delighted to see you enjoyed yourselves and you were able to make full use of our lovely relaxation rooms.
The water taxi and hotel shuttle service operates every hour making travelling into downtown Queenstown very easy.
I do apologise you found the lunch options limiting but I am happy to advise we are currently extending our range of light meals in the Lake Counter Deli.
Thank you again for your feedback and I look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel sometime soon.
