“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

The hotel is great value for money. We had a breakfast included package and used the free shuttle into Queenstown. The room was dated but clean. It was quiet. It needs more hot points, only 1 unless you unplug the clock. The shower is over the bath and the curtain blows in and sticks too you which I hate though. The view was wonderful. The breakfast was great with plenty to choose from.

Room Tip: The bus from the airport stops at the bottom of the hill, just outside.

Stayed at Goldridge last month. The room was very clean with an extra bed. The water was very hot and the electric blankets helped in chilly weather. Right outside the door were fantastic views of the Remark mountain range as well as the huge lake that Queenstown sits on. Highly recommend!

Stayed in the lakeview superior double room for three nights. Totally worth the price to wake up to such magnificent view,also there's unlimited wifi for our room.
Free shuttle down to town centre and friendly staff.

This accommodation is 6kms out of Queenstown on the Frankton Road. We had a good sizd room with excellent views of Lake Wakatipu. Although the décor is slightly dated, the room has everything that you need. The staff were friendly an the best bit was that the heated blanket had been switched on!

Room Tip: We had a lake view room with balcony

We arrived late after a day on the road. Called up and spoke to Daniel at reception who was very friendly and helpful. Arrived and were checked straight in with no worries. Room smelt slightly and was a bit outdated but was a nice change from the back of a van for a night. A little bit out of queenstown but not a problem if you have a car. Definitely go the lake view room as you get beautiful views of the sunrise and set.

We really enjoyed staying at the Goldridge Resort and would definitely return and recommend to others. The free shuttle to town was great, staff were very friendly and helpful (special thanks to Max and Lisa for their service) and the location looking out across the mountains and lake was just stunning. Breakfast was well priced and comparable to other Queenstown cafes and hotels. We had both continental and full buffet as well as ordering off the menu some mornings and it was delicious. The beds and pillows were comfortable, only downside of the room was probably the fact that the water pressure in the shower was a bit low and it was tricky to get the temperature just right between luke warm and too hot. Rooms were very clean and tidy though and the heater was on when we arrived. Thanks for a great experience team!
