Central Ridge Boutique Hotel (“Central Ridge”) is perfectly positioned right in the heart of Queenstown, and it is a stone throw away from dozens of restaurants, outdoor cafes, and recreational activities that occupy the breezy waterfront and easy-going pedestrian malls. Central Ridge offers well-appointed, cozy and spacious rooms with a comfortable bed and continental breakfast. The team have plenty of local knowledge to guide and advice to you the best restaurants in town, fun filled outdoor activities. The attractions nearer to Central Ridge Boutique Hotel includes:- - Pedestrian mall at Queenstown centre (walking distance 2-3minutes); - Restaurants and outdoor cafe along side waterfront at Lake Wakatipu (walking distance 4-5 minutes); - Queenstown Garden (walking distance 2-3 minutes); - Steamer Whaft for the cruise “Lady of the Lake” to Walter Peak. They said no trip to Queenstown is complete without a cruise to Walter Peak High Country Farm (walking distance 4-5 minutes to Steamer Whaft); - Skyline Gondola (walking distance 10 minutes); - Coronet Peak ski area (driving 20 minutes) - Remarkable ski area (driving 40 minutes) - Vineyard tour activities (driving about 20 minutes) Our boutique hotel offers a very unique experience. We balance the privacy of a large hotel with the personal service of a boutique bed & breakfast.

This hotel is perfectly located - easily walkable to town but far enough away to be quiet as Queenstown can be noisy. Our room was well-appointed, spacious, and had a great view of the gondola and mountains. The breakfast available was also nice. We would stay here again!

I was very pleased with the location and room, and the staff was amazing! Quick 3-5 min walk to town (slight hill coming back but if my 65-year old mother can do it, so can you). I must reiterate, the staff did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable.

Big room with a view in a soulless complex close to the centre. Expensive and disappointing 2 nights. We expected something special given we paid double our normal rate following the excellent reviews on your site

well located near the main streets of downtown Queenstown, the hotel is well appointed, lovely breakfast each morning and very friendly manager and staff. Would definitely stay there again. Parking provided and a quick walk into town were very welcome attributes.

Hi, Probably best to contact accommodation place direct as not all places are the same. I think by memory ours had a king bed and the room was very large as well.The view wasnt that great,that was on the ground floor,maybe ones on the 1st floor would be better. Regards M

"very comfortable and pleasant. "
"We had the king downstairs room - would recommend"
"We chose an upstairs room which had a nicer view, but that means you have to carry your suitcases up the stairs."
"Close the curtains during the day to keep the room cool."
