“Fabulous Accommodation/Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

Very comfortable accommodation in a very central location with comfy beds. Great value and excellent service from the time we booked to time we checked out. We highly recommend and hopefully will get the opportunity to return. Thank you Mel for all your helpful travel advice and co-ordinating our daily itinerary.

Room Tip: Our flight from Wanaka to Milford was cancelled due to poor weather ... the bus trip from Queenstown...

Stayed here for 4 nights. Good size room & comfortable bed, short walk to to the centre of town & staff were very helpful. Great place for a couple to relax whilst enjoying the wonders and activities of Queenstown.

We were only there one night but it was great - especially the buffet breakfast! It's not in the busiest part but there's a quick footpath to the centre so you're there in a few minutes.The room was comfortable and spacious, the lady on duty helpful and pleasant to talk to. Highly recommended.

Stayed for 5 nights, from the 6th November 2013, in a top floor room overlooking the mountains.
The well thought out purpose-built facilities in the room are just where you want them to be and are kept spotlessly clean. Quests have the option to go 'green', hence, choose not to have the room serviced everyday, which as a solo traveller I chose to do - good to have that choice.
Great location since it is within easy walking distance to the centre of town and near to the Botanical gardens. There is some issue with the noise on the wooden floor boards, as some other reviewers have mentioned, however it is not a major problem - Ask for a top floor room.
The laundry is useful if you have an extended stay. I was not travelling by car so parking was not an issue for me. I would recommend this Lodge to friends as a great place to stay in Queenstown.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room overlooking the mountains.

Dear tonyK845

It was a pleasure to have you stay with us recently at Coronation Lodge. Thank you for choosing to “Go Green” during your stay. The money we save from servicing your room is put towards donations to local communities. It also saves the environment with fewer chemicals being used daily and less laundry being washed saving water and power resources. We really feel strongly about minimizing our impact on the environment, and by “Going Green” you can help us to reach our goals. Your recommendation to friends is just fantastic for a small business like ours and we hope that we can host you again in the future.

Kind regards

We have just stayed at the Coronation Lodge for 2 nights (not long enough!) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in every way. We echo all the comments made by recent reviewers. Location ideal, quiet and easy short walk to lake/town and right by the fantastic Queenstown Gardens, which are free to go in. We parked on Sydney Street (free) so didn't use parking garage. Did use the laundry. Good facility. Dryer did take 2 goes as the sigh said it might.

Loved the Alpine wooden look with the nice rugs. We had room 10 on corner. Huge room, immaculately clean, modern, fresh kitchenette and shower room. We liked the room so much we had a picnic in the room on our second night. All the kitchen equipment you could wish, including plunger and plunger coffee provided. We made our own brekkies in the room.

The young lady who checked us in and out (I think Mel) is we reckon the friendliest most helpful person we have met in NZ, and that is setting the bar high as everybody has been so friendly.

Well done to all involved in this fabulous modern lodge - cannot fault a single thing.

Can't wait to come back and stay longer.

This was a wonderful place to stay in Queenstown. The staff are incredibly helpful. The location was good, close to town center. Free wifi was also a definite plus. Also, since my trip was pretty long, it was nice to have the laundry facility there. I highly recommend this place!

Room Tip: I have stayed in both kitchen and non-kitchen rooms. Both are good depending on what you need.

My partner and I came to stay here on 28th September 2013 for 2 nights. The room was clean, modern and warm. It came with everything you need and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Just a short walk to the city centre. This was one of the BEST places i have ever stayed in and we will definitely be back :)
