My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in October 2010. As it was our first visit to Queenstown, the hotel was easy to find, but the car park wasn't big enough to accommodate the whole hotel and one night we had to park on the street.
Reception staff were very polite on arrival, getting to our room from the main entrance was a bit of a job though, as we had to use two different elevators on opposite sides of the hotel to get to our room, because of the shape of the hotel. Our view of the lake was magnficent, couldn't fault it at all.
We ate dinner at their restaurant one night, as they had a special going. The meals were beautiful, although a little on the small side for the price.
The biggest issue we had the Rydges Queenstown was our room had a door connecting us to the room next door. The french person located in that room decided to call her friends/family/anyone she could find at about 3:30am, as well as have the tv blaring all night. On the first night, I knocked on her door and told her to keep the noise down, but it made no difference, we were awake and it felt like she were in the room with us. It was terrible. The second night... same again, and I could hear someone else from another room knock on her door to keep the noise down again. Third night... same again..... and went for over an hour and a half.
The room was tidy and modern, and we had pre ordered a cheese platter prior to arrival, it was very nice but had a lot of dried fruit which I don't eat.
Location wise, Rydges was an easy walk to the centre of Queenstown.
I would stay here again, as long as there is no one else in the rooms either side of us!
