I stayed at the Goldridge Resort while on a family vacation to New Zealand.
Upside: We stayed in a ground floor room facing the lake, SUCH a great view. There were sliding glass doors so you could walk out on to the grounds and a nice little area to sit and have a coffee. There are a lot of bed options for this resort, which is helpful when you don't want to book numerous rooms to save money. We had a room with 3 single beds which was nice (and hard to come by). Parking was easy, there are small driveways to reach each area, which is helpful when you have luggage to haul. The gardens on the grounds were also very beautiful. Not in Queenstown central but just fine with a rental car. I recommend a rental car when in Queenstown to get out to the country and explore. I didn't make it to the bar but my family said it was nice.
Downside: There were a few minor issues with the bathroom, just seemed in need of some updating. We had breakfast on our last day and it seemed a bit expensive for what you got.
Overall a good place to stay in Queenstown. Consider distance to city center if you will not be renting a car.
