I stayed 3 nights for a conference. The hotel staff we're very efficient and helpful. My room was in good condition and the cleanliness was excellent. Only downside was poor wifi signal in my room (top floor at one end of the building). I would happily stay again.

Nice hotel with great rooms. However its about a 15 minute drive from queenstown and even longer if you get stuck in traffic on the one way bridge (so annoying) iylt will cost you $10 each way on the water ferry pp and taxis are really expensive. However great restraunts on site so if a night or two you might... More

Nice rooms, well appointed. Worked really well for our ski trip to Queenstown. Have stayed here twice now and will stay again. Lovely location if you don't mind not being in the heart of Queenstown. Good value.

Stayed here for work to be near the airport, the facilities are terrific! Great choice of restaurants, good gym and the room was nice too - good lounge space with comfortable chairs... The only downside was the bathroom.... Very small although perfectly functional.

Great location right on the lake and near the airport. Rooms are well appointed, clean and modern. Two downsides; 1 is that is a distance from the centre of town - too far to walk and 2 while they promote a shuttle service it is not frequent enough - either have a car or use a taxi ($40 from town)....

Was recommended by friends to try out DoubleTree @ Queenstown and didn't regret it. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful in providing directions. If you do not drive, they do offer transport to the city as it is quite a distance. Breakfast was good. Will definitely stay with them again.

We enjoyed our stay at Doubletree, the apartment was well appointed and the staff and service were very good. Unfortunately this hotel is let down by having to pay for transport from the airport. It is at most a 7 minute drive from the airport and there is no free shuttle which adds about $20-$25 for a taxi fare. It's... More

There was no internet. There was a reasonably polite email with no date advising that it was temporarily out of service and their IT support was working on it. I have purchased 4GB of mobile data already from Vodafone at a cost of $80. When travelling for work in 2016 internet is an expectation, and as I booked through work... More

Hotel is well located if you want to be out of the bustle of Queenstown though dining options are limited in the area. Access to Remarkables ski fields is close by and drive to Coronet Peak is also within reasonable distance. Found we were going against the traffic most of the time which was good as there were often traffic... More
