We were very happy with the overall experience staying almost a week in a two bedroom residence on the waterfront. Stunning views including night-time views of the road to Queenstown, very clean, warm and quick to heat, great black out drapes, adequate kitchenette, comfortable Hilton beds. The pool was great with a school age child, and a beautiful memory of swimming in the warm while it snowed right outside the windows.
We enjoyed great pizza at the Stacks pub, Asian influenced meals at the Me and Mee which turned into takeaway due to a grumpy toddler with no eyebrows raised by staff, and Wakatipu Grill ($200 plus for two adults) which was exceptional fine dining without the drama. Also great coffee at The Grocer but it was $6.50 a cup! Nothing at the Hilton is not cheap, but nothing in Queenstown is, and you don't go there to save money... Also these prices would still seem reasonable to most overseas tourists (maybe they should have 'locals' rates ;-) ) I guess we could have gone off-site for our evening meals but it was just so convenient and meant we didn't have to worry about limiting alcohol or driving on icy cold roads in the dark.
All service we received was gracious and helpful. Staff in restaurants knew how to manage children by serving promptly, providing healthy kids meal options, and distracting them so parents could have a breather. Housekeeping staff responded to request to change room servicing time to work around our toddler's sleep-time.
We would go back in a flash. Home away from home feel, but with staff!
