“Good Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

My husband and I lived 3 nights in The Coronation Lodge. We had the room on the second floor and it’s clean & quiet. The staffs are so nice, they are kindly help. Besides above, the location is quite good, it only takes a few minutes walk to the QT center. We really enjoyed our stay and will again choose it next time.

Very clean and very comfortable. Excellent service! Here are really very nice and friendly. We spent the two last days of our journey here. And it leaves us a very good memory. The price are reasonable. Next time I come, I will still consider this hotel:)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We stayed 2 nights at the Coronation for $300 NZ in Oct 2012.

We were greeted by a friendly young lady at the desk. We were a little early so left our bags with reception, bags were in our room when we returned which meant we didn't have to carry them up the stairs ourselves - very nice.

Room 11 was basic but very clean with a decent queen bed and modern bathroom. We had a bit of a view of the distant mountains, but these were partially obscured by the large trees in front of the hotel. The hotel is not far from town, only a short 5-7 min walk.

Staff again very helpful on checkout, giving us great advice about our drive to Wanaka.

Overall a very nice experience in a basic but perfectly good room.

Dear Sparksau

Thank you for your sharing your experience of Coronation Lodge with fellow travellers. I am delighted you found our staff to be friendly and helpful. We strive to provide convenient, clean and comfortable accommodation and I am glad that you found the overall experience very nice.

If I could just point out to others reading this review we only have super-king beds in the rooms, not queens, to clarify any confusion with what bedding we have available.

I had almost the same feeling as the reviewer below. It looks very plain from both outside and inside. I even felt a bit sad when first getting into the room. It might because of the Pine wood made furniture and decoration.

However, once you stay, you will find everything you need is handy and perfect and thoughtful.

-Glasses, plates, forks and knife in the neat arrangement in the little chamber near desk.
-Very big and comfortable bed, lovely view outside of Mt. Remarkable. Our room just under 2 sakura flower tree.
-The floor of the bathroom was warm. everything is clean and shine.
-Besides, what's my favorite is the hair dryer, plain but as excellent as the Lodge it self. serve in a low tone but professional style.
-laundry machine works perfect.

Close to the lake side and park and main Shotover Street but hided in a quiet side.

My husband and I loved it and we will stay here again if we visited Queenstown again.
Thanks for making the wonderful Lodge.

BTW, can I purchase one of your hair dryer?

I am delighted to see that during the course of your stay you found our accommodation to be excellent. It was our pleasure to help organise a hairdryer to be shipped to you in China, I hope it works out just as well as the one here in your room! We would be delighted to have you stay with us again.

You may feel Coronation Lodge is plain when you see the lodge from the outside.
Your impression would change "Extraordinary", once you've stayed a night.
Rooms are cozy, clean, full of amenities, plus staff is helpful to you.
They give valuable or even secret imformation as to QueensTown from THEIR OWN experiences. Actualy, I could have a nice dinner at the restaurant in the town thanks to that.
The most "Coronationish" is breakfast, I think. Besides various cereals, dried fruits, many kinds of juices+milk with flawless dishes+glasses, they serve a cup of tea or coffee that is made after asking the guests. Having such a thoughtful breakfast at modest price was one of the pleasures of my visit. Thank you.

外見からは地味な印象を与えるロッジですが、中に入り一泊すると印象が変わるのではないかと思います。部屋は清潔で温かみがあり、とても居ごこちがよいです。スタッフも気さくで、町のいろいろな情報を教えてくれたり、ツアーの予約をとってくれます。スタッフはニュージーランド人たちなので、日本語は通じませんが、ホスピタリティがある人たちなので、ブロークン英語でもきっと力になってくれると思います。このロッジで一番印象に残ったのは、朝食。シリアル中心の朝食ですが、たくさんの種類のシリアル、ドライフルーツ、ジュース、ミルク、そして、入れたてのコーヒーか紅茶を出してくれます。けっして豪華でなないけど、美しい外の景色を見ながらピカピカの食器で食べるニュージーランドの伝統的な(?)朝食は楽しみの一つでした。

We booked 2 rooms in July, one of them was a kitchenette room and the other was just a normal room. There were 5 of us in our group and the room was joined so that was great. I would say the location is one of the best things about this place, it's so near the town area - literally like a 3 minute walk. The rooms were spacious, clean and the beds were comfortable. There were heaters to keep us warm and they provide hairdryers as well. The balcony was great, we could see stars at night and the snowy mountains in the morning. I love the fact that the bathroom tiles were heated so my feet didn't freeze after I came out of the shower lol.
There was a little bit of noise at night, some drunk people laughing and talking loudly as they walked by. It wasn't a big thing and I would definitely recommend this place. It would be good if they had more specials though, it can be rather pricey.

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about Coronation Lodge and sharing your experience with others. We are glad that you found our location to be convenient and central to Queenstown. It is nice to know that the little touches such as the under-floor bathroom heating and hairdryers made your stay that little bit more comfortable. I am sorry that during the evening you experienced some noise from people making their way home past the lodge.

Thank you for mentioning specials! We actually have a great special available at the moment for September and October which includes continental breakfast! Please also contact us direct if you wish to stay with us again and we can offer a special rate for you as a return guest! We would love to have you stay with again.
