4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed for 3 nights in late September. Pros: - Location couldn't be any more central - you are smack bang in the middle of everything Queenstown has to offer. - Prestige Suite offered great views over Queenstown. Some street noise and that's to be expected when you are in the middle of town. - Left Bank Cafe - a wide... More

The Sofitel Queenstown is a great place to stay in the heart of Queenstown. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The new bar is well worth a visit! The rooms are luxurious. Everything in town is virtually at your doorstep.

Negatives: We emailed in advance to let them know we were staying as part of our honeymoon, yet were placed in a room facing the noisiest street and on the 5th floor when there was construction work going on from 9am on the 6th floor (which nobody mentioned once when we were checking in). Had to call down to reception... More

This place has a great location, right smack in the middle of the city centre and just across the road from the ski centre, and one of the closest hotel to the gondola. It is practically opposite the famouse ferg burger/bakery chain as well. Rooms are great - spacious, well furnished, service is excellent. Wifi is very stable and easy... More

This hotel was one of the best hotels I have stayed at. After travelling for over 25 hours to get to New Zealand, we were exhausted and so thrilled to be taken to such a luxurious room to sleep off our jet lag. They were even kind enough to bring up two glasses of sparkling wine to our room to... More
