Great location - we have stayed here for a few nights during our first trip back in 2010, and decided to stay here again given the convenience of its location. Right by the lakeside and next to Queenstown Garden, it's only a short stroll to the centre of town and you really can't fault the location. Parking-wise we made use of the NZ$20 valet service which was convenient. The hotel staff were very accommodating when we asked if we could stay an extra few hours after checking in prior to heading to the airport, which allowed us to explore the city without worrying about parking elsewhere - great service.
Hotel was clean and modern, with a/c which I have found is rare in NZ. The corridor was a bit stuffy when we stayed but the rooms were well ventilated. Bathroom was modern and clean, with everything we needed. We travelled as a family so were happy to be able to get adjoining rooms when we requested.
The beds were really soft but you can ask for pillows with different firmness.
We will be back again.
