“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

The interior of the room is fairly old and lacks the up to date look and gadgets. However it is extremely warm, clean and the view is amazing. The breakfast is very good for the special deal that we paid. Nothing flash but everything is provided - cooked breakfast, continental, good selection of tea. The counter staff are friendly and helpful. There are also plenty of partings. It's about 5 minutes drive into town or a good scenic walk ( not recommended when its icy as the resort is on a hill and walking down the main road can be a bit of a mission on iced pavement.

The Goldridge is outstanding value for money at one of New Zealands amazing places - Queenstown.

The family rooms are large enough for a group of 6. Easy access into town or Frankton. The staff are very friendly and always willing to help, book tours.

We are already booked to go back in 2014.

Room Tip: You will be spoily for views. The family rooms are great for groups.

It was my second stay here, and I specifically requested an upstairs corner superior lakeview room. Upstairs rooms have a balcony with superb views, and are very quiet. The staff are very friendly, and eager to help. Breakfast was included in our stay and was a never ending full cooked breakfast buffet. We ordered room service and the food was delivered promptly, steaming hot and tasty! The room is a good size, with 2 queen beds but a little soft for my liking. The hotel is a little out of town, further out than walking distance, but there is a shuttle available in the evenings if needed and ample free car parking. I think the views make it worth staying here!

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs superior lakeside view room, they have a balcony with the best views!

Loved the electric blankets, made full use of them. There's one on each side of the bed so you can warm your side up to the temperature you want. However the hair dryer in our room needed replacing - all the wires in the cord were exposed. The fridge rattled all night which was slightly annoying too (if it wasn't for that then 'sleep quality' would be rated 'excellent')

Water for the shower was hot and powerful, loved the shampoo and body wash they had it smelt yummy.However something was dripping our entire stay but I couldn't work out where the sound was coming from (it wasn't a leaky tap!)

This is probably not the place to stay in if you want something close to central Queenstown, but they offer a free shuttle service to Athol Street to make up for it. If you return after 9.15pm then they have a deal with the green taxis for $14 which wasn't too bad and all the taxi drivers with that company were friendly and helpful.

For what the place is we thought it was rather pricey; we have travelled around most of New Zealand and thought we would 'splash out' a bit more than our usual budget and didn't get what we expected at all, considering the amount we paid didn't include breakfast. We've got places handier to town for cheaper. But if you're after somewhere quiet, a warm comfy bed, want to return from town before 9.15pm or have your own car then go for it.

I'd also recommend you book through the company website as they're not particularly helpful/sympathetic if the original booking wasn't through them. For anything else though the service from the staff was excellent.

Room Tip: Choose a lake view room, I think they're numbered 500-600. Try go for a top floor if you don...

We stayed at the Goldridge for a weekend, while its not an upmarket hotel, it was extremely clean and well set out (rooms are been upgraded). Couldn't have faulted the service of staff all very friendly and welcoming. The views form the lake side rooms are amazing! The hotel is a wee way out of town so if you don't have car this could be a problem, the hotel does offer a free coach into town on the hour till 9pm, and a taxi back is $14. Buffet breakfast was excellent, with excellent variety. The room had a new heater which could be used all night and was quiet. The hotel was quiet when we stayed so noise wasn't a problem, but it was a quiet time of the year for Queenstown. We would defiantly stay there again for $99 a night including breakfast we were happy!

Room Tip: Get a lake side room, views are amazing.

We recently spent a long weekend at Goldridge on a very reasonable deal including breakfast. The views from the lakeview rooms are great, the food very tasty, and the hotel very tidy. The young staff were also very friendly. Goldridge is our go-to place in Queenstown as it is neither expensive or pretentious. Bonus points for the spa room!
