“A surprisingly great hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2010

Room had very recently been redecorated, was very large with two queen beds and a area for sitting etc. Also had a large deck facing lake Wakaitipu with good views. There was a little road noise but not enought to keep us awake. Bathroom only had a shower, but was all new and of good quality. Staff were very helpful. Price was half what we would normally pay in this location, so excellent value.

We had booked a twin bed room, however the room assigned to us had only one queen size bed. We rang down to reception who apologised and gave us a room which suited us perfectly. The view across the lake towards the Remarkables was amazing. The hotel itself was very clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially when we asked a few questions about parking in the city centre, walking distances etc.

The hotel is not located directly in the middle of town, but is only a few minutes walk to the centre. We had no issues with noise. The breakfast (included in the price) was very good. Highly recommended.

The Hotel exceeded all expectations, we originally booked 4 nights but extended a further 4 nights. The newly refurbished room, an apartment setup with full kitchen facilities and great views with an outdoor balcony was superb. Staff were most polite, friendly and helpful who provided great service. Our stay at this hotel helped make our holiday in Queenstown most memorable.

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers and the penthouse apartment we stayed in was wonderful. There were separate toilets and bathrooms - necessary with 2 teenage girls! The apartments were lovely, clean and warm and the beds very comfortable. The view from the balconies was spectacular. We hired a car and the undercover parking was great - no ice on the windows. Although we hired a car, the short walk to town was not a problem. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Was lucky to get one of the newly refurbished 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom units - could still smell the paint but was not a problem. Everything was brand new and wonderful. Beds were the most comforable we have ever slept in. Lots of room, kitchen and bathrooms very nice, fantastic views. Heating was very effective. Would thoroughly recommend these rooms. Restaurant was also very good and value for money - particularly "specials" nights.

We stayed for a week in one of their apartments which was ideal for our stay: basic, warm, large, great views and clean. Unfortunately for us, the apartment had just been decorated (I'd guess two hours before we arrived) and so were a little high on paint fumes for the first 4 or 5 days. Given the renovations throughout the building there were no equivalent apartments to swap to.
Both toilets were cleverly designed to save space but I didn't enjoy having to stand alongside the toilet brush just to get the door shut (or open, once in it).
The building is a little further from town than would have been ideal (we will try to be a bit nearer next time). Must say we found all of the staff very friendly and helpful. If when we next go to Queenstown we can't find a place nearer town for the right $$$ then we would happily return to this one.
