We stayed, with our family, in the whole top floor of the cottages that are a few steps away from the main hotel. The situation is amazing- fabulous views across the ridiculously beautiful Lake Wakatipu, and for us the convenience of being self- contained and yet able to use the hotel facilities worked perfectly. There is not much to say other than that we all loved it. They take extraordinary care over the things that really matter (beautiful surroundings, comfort, warmth, good food and efficient service) and yet at the same time give you a feeling of unhurried, unfussy space and time to relax completely. (This is particularly important in Queenstown as once you leave the sanctuary of the hotel you are likely to be doing something terrifying or, even worse, watching your kids doing it instead. It is not called ‘the adrenaline capital of the world’ for nothing! ) I suppose the lasting memory is of the easy charm of the staff- they stop to chat just enough but not too much, they are polite, efficient and confident . A lovely hotel which I cannot fault, if you are looking for simple luxury in a stunningly beautiful location.
