We truly enjoyed our 4 night stay at the Hilton. We had actually booked a lake view room in the Kawerau Hotel next door, but I guess they had spare rooms in the Hilton and upgraded us to that. However, the room they put us in did not have a lake view, so we notified reception of this and they happily moved us to an excellent room with a stunning view of the lake..
The room was were well sized with a gas fireplace as well temperature controlled heating and a very comfortable king-sized bed. The luxurious bathroom had a bath and shower, with lovely bath products. Everything spoke of quality and comfort. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
It's a little way out from Queenstown though, but we had a hire car and parking was free. having said that, the hotel is centrally positioned for everything that the Queenstown/Wanaka area has to offer and is also close to the airport.
There was a ski shop in the complex, where we were able to get our skis tuned and where we were able to rent some bikes for a day's riding around the lake. We rode around the lake to the Queenstown Golf Course and had a coffee and sandwich on their deck. The view across the lake to Queenstown was stunning. Definitely a worthwhile excursion to try. There's also a number of nice restaurants in the complex, but we would also recommend driving along to Frankton to the local Indian restaurant. The food there was amazing.
Nice hotel - we would definitely go back. In fact, we've booked another weekend there at the end of October.
