We had an executive room(whatever that's supposed to convey,and maybe they're all called that so who knows whether yours would be better or worse because the term is fairly meaningless) and it was very luxurious.All the mod-cons you could expect at the price.Big comfortable bed.Great bathroom with walk in shower plus a bath with jet spas.Toiletries and towels plentiful.Housekeeping happy to take care of any needs.Plenty of tea and coffee making facilities.Mini bar(expensive of course).TV with good range of channels.Room safe.All very clean.Lovely view of the lake and a small terrace to while away the hours outside the big glass windows.
Parking on site is free.WIFI is free in the room and there's a communal computer in reception with 30 mins use allowed free.There's a small gym available--but it really is small.
So what's the catch.Well none really except the outside of the hotel is a little ugly,a bit industrial,whereas the inside is really nice.Also you are out of town.There's a regular free shuttle bus you can use but it stops running about 10pm I seem to recall.A taxi is about 15 dollars.The walk is about 30 mins .
Would I stay again?Definitely because the price you should get on the internet is low for the standard of the hotel.Being out of town probably keeps the price down although since Queenstown can get a bit hectic maybe being out of town a short way is a plus to many people.Overall I reckon if you stay here you won't be disappointed.
