Good and quiet location. The mini kitchenette in the king room is helpful. However, bed was too soft, no toilet paper or rubish bin in the bathroom; cleaning was not great either. Staff friendly though.

We made a last minute decision to stay a few more days in Queenstown and choose this place due to the reasonable price and availability. Room appeared neat and tidy and on par with the reviews. First night we had only cold water in the shower and could not have a proper shower. Next day I advised reception who said... More

Originally booked here as we wanted to go to Onsen pools. But we forgot to pre-book Onsen of which they ended up being booked out. We stayed the night regardless. Effortless book in and out. Basic but tidy and clean room. Just don't expect mobile/cell coverage, didn't have any the entire time. Which was quite nice actually.

The lodge is really comfortable and great to stay. Though the location is a bit far from the city centre of Queenstown, but then you have an advantage of close proximity to Arrowtown too. The rooms were clean and tidy. Staff were helpful. Only suggestion, parking lot should be managed better. Cars are parked randomly which causes lesser cars to... More

In an expensive part of New Zealand, Shotover lodge represents good value for money. We stayed in a queen room with kitchenette and bathroom which was more than big enough for our party of two. We were happy with the free parking right outside our door. The lodge is located between the turn off for coronet peaks ski field and... More

Perfect for a budget conscious self catering ski holiday. We stayed 5 nights with our 2 yr old. The room was functional & tidy...king bed, bunk beds, ensuite, tv (not sky), & kitchenette (fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle). Then there was a good communal kitchen & great guest lounge (tv, free pool table, sofas, fireplace). This is not luxury accommodation but... More

We were on a road trip around south island and didn't have any reservations. We drove the whole day and decided to stay in Queenstown. Budget was about 100€ for one night. There were only three hotels left. This was the most expensive one. About 100€. We took it and just wanted to have a good nights sleep. We arrived... More

This lodge saved us during the time when finding long-term accomodation in Queenstown was ridiculously difficult. The location is pretty far away from town. Communal kitchen is clean. The room was average but we didn't expect anything extraordinary from a lodge. I would like to give a big shoutout to Jakub in the reception for always being helpful, friendly and... More
