The Hilton Hotel Queenstown, was an excellent choice for a two night getaway for two. Our standard room was elegant, quiet and warm. The winter sun hits the Hilton side of the lake, leaving Queenstown on the other side in shadow; allowing for warm pleasant mornings by the lake. The staff at the hotel were curtious and helpful which made our stay enjoyable.
This hotel has a great deal of potential. However, Kawarau village and the Hilton Hotel seemed empty and deserted the week we were there. We understood that ski season had not yet started, but it was the school holidays, and the closed restaurants and stores meant that we were on the bus first thing in the morning to spend time in Queenstown town where there was some form of human life and energy. We felt sorry for the ladies working in the cafe/ bakery at the hotel; our coffee took 20 min. to get to us and we guessed that they were either new, had no training or the cafe was understaffed.
I am not sure if we'd return, however, we did enjoy our stay. Maybe in several years time, when they have gotten over some of their growing pains, this hotel will the vibrant and special place it was envisioned to be.
