We booked the rooms many months prior to the actual trip. We knew check in was in the afternoon so we arrived Queenstown, took a car and saw the sights. time came to finally check in and we had no idea it's proximity to everything else and what to expect.

I saw the door handles and I knew we were in for a treat. After being very warmly greeted we were taken to our room The Remarkables Suite. Wow what a view of the Shot over and of the Remarkables.

Just a short drive away from crowded, no parking, downtown Queenstown is this beautiful "too good to be true" hillside resort. The bed was super comfortable, room spacious and THE VIEW was unreal!

Omg, I enjoyed my stay so so much! I carefully chose this location because it's not in the city but it's not too far from city centre. It's just an 8-min drive. The restaurant is beautiful as you look out that window, there are snow covered mountains. I like this boutique hotel so much, there is nothing bad I can... More

The hotel boasts 36 spacious boutique rooms, accommodating up to 74 guests, and all rooms have an open plan bedroom and lounge area, ensuite bathroom, and private balcony or patio. Nugget Point Hotel offers a wide range of facilities for our discerning guests.

Take advantage of our Home Theatre to enjoy a unique movie experience, with your own private viewing.

For each of our guests there is something special that appeals. It may be the prospect of stretching out in a spa bath with a glass of champagne at the end of the day, or a gourmet meal in our Birches Restaurant admiring the views, or simply curled up on a couch in front of an open fire in our lounge bar with your favourite bottle of wine.
