“Great location & good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Stayed there for 5 nights recently while attending the NZ Golf Open. Location is perfect as it is only a 3 minute walk to the town. The suites are very comfortable and large and the kitchen facilities are great for making your own breakfast or dinner. The only downside to this establishment is the fact that the outer door (which connects to two rooms) can be noisy if someone is checking out early, shame they don't have a 'soft closing ' device....

Room Tip: Get a room with a lake view

The location is just up the hill, and a reasonable walk to all the shops/events in Queenstown. Rates are reasonable, clean rooms, available, no cost laundry.
The walk uphill from town, is good exercise for any activities you'll do in Queenstown.

Over all just average. Reception staff very nice and friendly along with clean rooms.
As a guest you receive one hour of free ineternet per day and it can only begin after the time you last signed in.So,if you want to use your internet for the next day,you must wait until your 24 hours is aligned with the time you signed in yesterday;how miserable ! Treat you like a 4th grader,no exceptions......get with the program ,change the policy and in fact give your guests unlimited free access,most everyone else at that price range does already.
Many rooms face the busy main street,I got stuck in one for the first night,pretty loud.Harped on them the following day and got a room away from the street,less noise.No pool or hot tub.In my opinion,you can find newer,better hotels for a bit less money. Underground parking always full so had to park on the street every night.Needs a change of management to address some of these basic issues. Spend your money down the street.

Room Tip: Demand a room off the main street!

Clean, spacious room within 3-5m minutes walking distance to the downtown area. Free garage parking available. Staff are very accommodating and held some fruits we had in their fridge beyond check-out time so we could pick up upon our departure.
Book well ahead as we requested a lake view and only received ground floor facing the side street. Overall an efficient and professional set up.

The rooms were fabulous and great location! 15 min walk to downtown and far enough away that there was minimal traffic noise. For anyone looking for a central location in Queenstown, this is the place for you.

We were quite disappointed with our stay here and that was mainly due to the room we were given... R 9122. We'd stayed here back in 2003 and had a room with a great view of the lake but this time all we had was a glimpse of the lake but a great view of the back of the kitchen! What made it worse was that we also got the noise from the kitchen. Considering we probably paid the same as the guests around us who had views we felt a bit let deflated. We asked to be moved but were told the place was full. In a nut shell I think as we arrived late and were given the worse room in our category. So much for the name "Scenic Suites".

Anyway apart from the initial disappointment the room itself was looking a bit tired. Size wise it was great (70sqm) and well equipped. For self catering it worked well. The bed was a bit soft for us but that was mainly due to the topper. Due to it's position our room was quite dark which didn't help with our enthusiasm. Parking was free but as we arrived late there was nothing available under cover so we had to park outside. Not a big deal but undercover would have been better. Our subsequent nights there we were able to get undercover. Location wise it was very good. Within walking to everything. A bit of a hill to navigate just before you get to hotel so watch out if you have problems in that regard. An hours internet was provided daily which was a bonus we didn't expect. Should be a minimum with all motel/hotels!

Would we stay here again... only if we had a view otherwise we'd look elsewhere!

Room Tip: Try and get a room preferably overlooking the lake and Queenstown (QT) itself. Don't get a groun...

Just a one night stay for business but very impressed with service and the quality. Spacious rooms, good facilities. Buffet breakfast very good value. Room very warm and air conditioning would have been good, but other than that, very happy.
