The hotel is very easy to locate, as it is opposite the esplanade facing Lake Wakatipu; and within walking distance to the town centre. Upon arrival, the reception desk was courteous and helpful and the check-in was prompt.
We were checked in on the 5th floor facing the lake. The unit is well maintained and clean with the sitting room separated from the bedroom by a set of sliding doors. This greatly reduces the noise and disturbances from the sitting room when the adjourning doors are closed. There is a second TV set in the bedroom. Both the bedroom and sitting room have access to the spacious bathroom. The king size bed and pillows are indeed very comfortable. Heating is provided separately at the bedroom and the sitting room, making the place comfortably warm and cozy during the cold autumn night when we were there.
The décor is plain and simple, giving the sense of space. Both bedroom and sitting room have sliding glass doors that open to a wide common terrace, shared by all rooms on the same row. Beyond the low wall of the terrace is the lovely view of Lake Wakatipu.
There are two computers available at the lobby, next to the reception. Wi-Fi however, is chargeable. The coffee house is situated at the 6th Floor and it provides a wide range of good food during breakfast.
We had an enjoyable stay and loved the relaxing walk along the esplanade to the town where eateries are easily available. I congratulate the management for maintaining the hotel in top-form and have no hesitation in recommending it to any visitor to Queenstown.
