Swiss-Belresort Coronet Peak
Ranked #48 of 59 Hotels in Queenstown
Reviewed July 9, 2011

Pretty much agree with all the comments so far,

We were spending a romantic evening across the road at the Onsen Hot pools so decided to stay close as the roads were icy, and this was the closest and cheapest.
The room was old and shabby and the heating barely kept the room above freezing. They management really needed to give the rooms a good clean as in the bay window in our room the amount of dead insects and mould/mildew was disturbing.
We had drinks at the bar, and that was nice, then dinner in the "lounge" along with a few groups of teenagers (school groups?) that were polite and friendly. We chose to have the buffet and the food quality was acceptable and there was plenty of it, mainly curries though.
Once apon a time this would have been a fantastic place, but time has take its toll...we got what we paid for.

This hotel is near Arthurs Point which is about 6km from the centre of Queenstown, so if you stay here you are probably best to have a rental car.
Close to Coronet Peak ski area.
Clean and tidy three star standard.
The room I stayed in was a good size.

The hotel is about 10-15 minutes from town, in the middle of the forest. Really nice place to stay if you are travelling by car! Good for families and older people. Really quiet place and Coronet Peak and Skippers Canyon are really close to the hotel.
Not the cleanest one (some marks on the carpetfloor) but nice staff and nice location. Sauna is free. Can imagine how cool place this would be stay during the winter times!

Check in was advertised at 2pm but by 615pm we were still waiting for both our rooms to be ready. The foreign receptionist working on New years day struggled to speak English but that may have been down to the fact she stunk of wine.
Once rooms were ready we found they had only supplied hand towels and some plug sockets in room didn't work and the internal door lock was missing as were the plugs in bathroom.
The room and whole hotel very worn out and shabby and standard or drinks and food at hotel was poor. In serious need of refurbishment as clearly hasn't been done since the 1980's. Also the very small outdoor pool was dirty.
Ok to stay if only using the hotel as a place to put head down at night for a few hours. It certainly is nowhere near the standard advertised. I would not recommend staying here at all if you can help it.

Some negative reviews out there - sure, it is not in queenstown proper, sure it has no style.. but its cheap, and close to the mountain. Depends what you want out of life.

We went for 3 days skiing at Coronet Peak, and found it really useful to be based there.. we also went to Queenstown on the courtesy bus for free and had beers in town, and then got lifts back (or taxis, where they rip you off and charge $30NZ for the 10 min ride). The hotel is basic, but with all useful amenities (internet, bowling alley, etc).

With our skii package, we found this place super duper cheap and can recommend it as a clean basic hotel.. one thing that was weird, was the not-hot-enough sauna and slightly-smelly spa..

Very average!! stayed 5 nights and wasnt really impressed. Roof paint was all peeling off and dropping on the floor that was on the 1st day and was still there on checkout so room was not vaccumed the hole stay. Sheets not changed at all in the 5 days beds re made but with dirty sheets. The shuttles to and from town were good apart from being 1st booked on for a retutn trip at 10pm, shuttle arrives and we are told we would have to wait to they took a group of asian tourists before us they got preferental treatment even tho they were only staying one night and we were 5 nights. so we were left in the cold for 30 mins while we waited....not good enough really. Noisy rooms getting woken up at 5.30am in the mornings. The shuttle bus drivers were average to say the least at points actually feared for out lives and i know we wernt the only ones with the comments i heard. Some friendly staff and some not so friendly, definatly would not go back again

I to looked at the reviews after my holiday club booked it for me, before moving into our unit in the middle of Queenstown, and i was really concerned. BUT WOW!!!! what a great place to stay. Clean warm rooms, great bar and friendly people. Great Food, warm cosy wood fires to sit near and have a great meal and drink after a day of skiing. Kids loved going bowling. And 15mins drive to the snow fields. For a three star rating this place was the bomb, was really sad to leave. Are booking again next year. Oh and try the ribs a meal for two and Yummmmmmmmy. Please do not listen to the first comment on the adviser as i honestly do not know what they were talking about.
