View of the Remarkables from our room!
We stayed at the Dairy (beautiful place) and then stored our bags there while we were on the Routeburn Track for a little over a week. The bags were in our room when we checked in after completing the hike.

Yes e have a drying room for ski all ski gear. We don't have a restaurant on-site, although we have just introduced a Private Dining option, with some of Queenstown's top chefs - so you can now dine at the hotel. Alternatively, there are plenty of great restaurants in Queenstown itself - just a short 2 minutes walk from the hotel

Hi there, we do offer a laundry service for a small fee. As some of the answers have already indicated, our service is a "wash and fold" service - we'll provide you with a basket that you can fill with your laundry and we'll wash and fold evrything during the day whilst you are out enjoying Queenstown. Hope this helps.
