Nugget Point Queenstown Hotel
Ranked #28 of 58 Hotels in Queenstown
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 8, 2013

We booked this hotel as part of a trip down to Te Anau as a romantic getaway. We were originally intending on going into Queenstown to have dinner but after booking into Distinction Nugget Point, we decided to stay at the hotel.
What a beautiful view!! We were so impressed with the way we were treated at check in, we decided to take advantage of the services at the hotel and stay there for the evening.
The rooms were well appointed in an Edwardian theme, while not to our personal taste, was beautiful, clean and were very comfortable. We had a garden view room with a balcony.
We opted to eat at the hotel restaurant in the evening. What a fantastic meal, excellent and attentive service - all made even more special due to the breath taking view from our table.
We then took advantage of a well stocked DVD library and spent the remainder of our evening in our rooms.
We did not take advantage of breakfast the next morning or the spa, so unfortunately are unable to comment on these services.
We had a fantastic time at this hotel and have no doubt that we will be returning to visit.
Special mention to the attentive staff at check in who gave us a tour of the hotel amenities and made us feel very special from the minute we walked in.

Fell upon this place through an online search and could not have been happier. The hotel was quite dead as their tourist season was over for the year so the place was pretty quite - which was nice! The room was very roomy and comfortable. Although the outlet in the bathroom did not function, the room did have many amenities that were very nice - robes, French press, nice selection of teas, fresh milk, sofa, lots of closet space, nice bathroom. The spa was beautiful and the breakfast in the restaurant was delicious. The view from the bar was nothing short of amazing as it overlooks the Shotover River. That coupled with the fall color on the trees made the view exceptional!

I would have to say, with the amount of places i have stayed, this one takes the cake.
This place was well worth spending the extra to make it enjoyable. From arrival we had nothing but excellent front-desk assistant. Whenever we passed the front desk the staff were helpfull, friendly, and extremely pleasent to deal with. We arrived late in the day and decided to hang out in the restaurant and enjoyed chilling with a wine from their amazing selection. The longer we stayed here the better things got.
If you want to stay somewhere that is value for money within all corners of every aspect of your stay then do not hesitate, book now and enjoy as much as we did for our honeymoon.
Thanks Distinction for a very enjoyable honeymoon, we will be back for sure!!!!

This is the second time we've stayed at Nugget Point, and it was even better than the first time. The location and outlook are spectacular, with the Shotover River at your feet as you stand on your balcony to look out.

The dining room is gorgeous, the staff are attentive and helpful and so friendly. The best thing about staying in a smaller boutique hotel is that you get to know the staff, and they know you as well.

I highly recommend a stay here. The 5 - 10 min drive out of Queenstown is so worth if. Definitely get a room overlooking the Shotover River.

Room Tip: Definitely get a room with an outlook over the Shotover River!

Just 5minutes drive from busy Queenstown, we had a wonderful stay at this hotel. It was very peaceful and relaxing, and any staff member we met was super helpful and smiley. We were amazed with the Spa facility, and enjoyed two of the best massages ever!
Will come again.
