My wife and I stayed here initially for one night but found the location, spaciousness of the room and generosity of our host too good to leave so we booked another night. We had read previous posts that said the location was perfect, despite the aspect looking back toward Ben Lomond (mountain) and the gondola - it was quite awe-inspiring....

My wife and I stayed at the Central Ridge Boutique Hotel twice during November 2016 -- once before a hiking track, and once after. The hotel rooms were clean and very comfortable, and both afforded pleasant views of Queenstown. The staff was incredibly courteous and helpful, and provided a number of excellent recommendations for places to eat and activities.

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.
