Lovely clean & quiet room (perfect for posing in), comfy bed, fantastic location, great view, charming communal areas. Can't fault the place. Nice friendly, helpful staff. Value for money, and then some!

I booked this hotel for 2 nights for a weekend away. It was a perfect place. The room was large and spacious, bed was big and comfy, and the bathroom was modern. The room had its own heat pump. The hotel had its own car park but I preferred to park on the street and got one right outside -...

No real interaction with the staff. They stay out of the way most of the time but always available when needed. Quite and nice rooms. Quick walk into town, but no real room views which is a bit sad in beautiful Queenstown.

Room was large, clean, comfortable, excellent location. The price included WiFi and local telephone service. However, I felt the price, over $192 per night US, was excessive for the off-season (April) in Queenstown. It did not include breakfast which would have been another $13 US. While we were in Queenstown, we saw hotels which appeared from the outside to be...

Stayed four nights, would definitely stay again. Had a lower level room with a great view and patio. Room was always clean. Free off-street parking and a quick/cheap laundry service. Good location just a few minute walk from everything.

Hi I stayed at the central ridge and found it to be perfectly fine for a stay in Queenstown, within a few minutes walk to town meant there were no dramas getting anywhere, the staff were courteous and pleasant, I would stay again.

Central Ridge was a perfectly located property. We had a balcony with intermittent views of the lake which was beautifully staged by trees with all the autumn colours which made it so picturesque and delightful. The bathroom had a large shower, my only criticism after traveling extensively would be the shampoo/conditioner and hand soap was not the best. But if...

The establishment is centrally located enabling us to fully enjoy the sites Queenstown had to offer. Walking distance to the town center and food joints. The hotel manager was also very helpful as both of us were newbies into town.

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.
