Stayed at this hotel for a week long work conference, most of which was spent at the Hilton.
The rooms are stunning, very plush and the bathrooms are wonderful.
My big issue was the pillows; they only have two sorts available, and they are very similar. Many of my colleagues did not have an issue with this, and while it might not seem like a deal breaker to some, keep in mind that a hotel is first and foremost a place to rest your head, and the fact that the Hilton is a five-star location I was disappointed in the lack of options. My stay would have been far more pleasant had I managed to get a good night's sleep!
For those who are considering booking into this hotel, also keep in mind it is on the other side of the lake from Queenstown itself, and there is a $40 cab fare each way into town. There is a water taxi which I understand used to be free but is now $10 each way.
