We just redeemed Hilton Honors points for 2 nights here for our 29th wedding anniversary. We were enthusiastically checked-in by a lovely Canadian young lady who promptly upgraded us to a lakeview corner suite (we have Diamond status with Hilton) which was a lovely surprise. Not long after settling into the room, a complimentary bottle of wine and spring water arrived. The suite was in a quiet corner with only four other rooms on the floor. Stunning views over the lake from floor to ceiling windows and a private balcony with table and two chairs. Bathroom was high-end and had a huge rainfall shower and a similarly huge freestanding bath, plus two individual porcelain handbasins. Sitting room had large cream sofa and a matching armchair, plus the usual desk and ergonomic chair for staying in business! We booked dinner in the Wakatipu Grill that night and the food was flawlessly presented and served. Our waitress, Mia, knew exactly which of the pinot noirs to recommend and it was exactly to our taste, and outstanding (Wild Earth 2009). Breakfast was included and offered pretty much everything - cooked, cereals, fresh fruit, cheese/cold cuts and interestingly, a fruit/veg juicer to make your own fresh juices. The design of the hotel blends beautifully with the surrounding scenery and the gardens are well stocked with native plantings which were very aesthetically pleasing. All of the staff with whom we had any contact were outstandingly helpful, even Thomas, the courtesy coach driver, who dropped us at the airport on our last day. Didn't want to leave. This is a top-notch, exemplary Hilton and we will definitely be back as we visit Queenstown 2-3 x a year. Only one negative - there is no executive lounge! Keep up the great work guys!
