Prior to visiting the Hilton Queenstown, I contacted the general manager, Mr. Nesbit, as we were visiting Queenstown for a special occasion and wanted everything to be perfect. Mr. Nesbit and his operations person, Mr. Schumacher, went out of their way to make our stay excellent. From the time we arrived at the property, the staff members were friendly and seemed to genuinely want to provide wonderful service.
We had a fabulous room overlooking the lake. It was tranquil and allowed us to enjoy the lake view along with the ambient glow of the fireplace. The furnishings of the room were modern and sophisticated without being cold. The room featured the right balance between modern design, function and comfort. As a member of the Hilton HHonors program, I have been to a good number of Hilton properties, and I must say that the Hilton Queenstown is one of the best in the chain.
The room’s living area includes a comfortable chair, loveseat/sofa, coffee table, desk area, fireplace, refrigerator with a few minibar beverages, and coffee/tea service. There is also a small balcony with small stools. Beds are comfortable, and there are two televisions in the room just in case one is inclined to watch television. There is a good sized wardrobe with iron and ironing board, along with the requisite safe.
While some may find the location of the hotel to be inconvenient for visiting Queenstown proper, I chose this location because it was not in Queenstown proper. I rented a car so the location was not an issue for us. We could visit the town when we wished, and yet enjoy the tranquility we desired. There are water taxis and bus service for those who do not wish to rent a car while staying at the hotel. The hotel is near the Remarkables shopping center and the Queenstown airport. While we could see some planes from our room, we were not bothered by any airplane noise.
Thanks to Mr. Nesbit and Mr. Schumacher for a wonderful stay. I hope our travels will allow us to visit your property again in the not-too-distant future.
