“Comfortable & convenient, with character”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2009

My husband & I stayed here for 2 nights in a Remarkables Room. We found it to be a convenient & efficient place to stay as a base for the Central Otago area; the fact that it has some character was a bonus.

Our corner room was huge, with full-length windows & sliding doors opening onto a small patio; the view was unremarkable but it was nice to have so much light. There was a large amount of free space, a sitting area, & a handy hidden kitchenette with microwave, sink, fridge & burners; this setup would be great on a ski holiday or for a family. The bathroom was spacious, with a big double tub & a huge walk-in rainshower. The bed was also huge & extremely comfortable.

The service was good, with the staff efficient & quick to give tips on restaurants & things to do. One of the very nice owners was at the front desk & checked us out early in the morning. Though it feels like a small hotel (which is good if you want some anonymity), we appreciated that the owners take such personal care with the property.

The location is very convenient, a 10-minute walk to the center of town but with easy access to the main roads into/out of town, in case you're using it as a base to explore the region, as we did. We also really appreciated the garage below with free parking. I would recommend this as a nice alternative to the more expensive options in town, though it may also be a bit simpler.

  • Liked — Convenient location, good room & facilities
  • Disliked — Decor a bit cold/minimalist (yes I know that's the style...)

My wife and I stayed at the QPH right around Xmas 2008....The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the center of Queenstown and has a great feel to it...The design blends in with the natural surroundings and the hosts/owners make it feel that you are visiting a private home...There is daily wine tasting and canapes before dinner and they even bring in local winemakers to interact with the guests...We had a gondola facing room...It had very nice, modern finishings with all the amenities you could want...The only negatives that I could mention is that the room is a tad small and there are no slippers in the room (I am being picky)...Queenstown was by far the most expensive place we visited in NZ but the QPH provided very good value for money (especially in comparison with the Spire hotel which is almost double the cost and is right in the middle of town)...The owners made sure we had all of our questions answered about excursions and restaurants and were always there to help...All in all, QPH is a very cool place to stay in a great corner of the world

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Queenstown Park Hotel. It is in a great location that is close to the activities and restaurants of Queenstown, without having any of the associated noise (approximately 5 minute walk to all of the best restaurants and activities in Queenstown). The owners / hosts John and Donna do everything possible to make you feel at home during your stay. This is definitely a boutique hotel with approximately 15 rooms, which is exactly what we were looking for during our stay. The hotel is approximately 1 year old and the decor / furnishings are contemporary and very comfortable. The only person that I would not recommend this hotel to, is someone looking for a dramatic lake view of Lake Wakatipu, but you definitely aren't paying for that, and if quality and comfort are important to you, I believe this is the best option in Queenstown, barring what I mentioned above about the view.

Queenstown Park Hotel is for sure one of the nicest Boutique Hotels in NZ. Only 12 month old it personal service at its best. The managers, Donna and John, give the hotel a very personal touch - which is quite unique for a hotel. Any wish, any problem, any desire: they'll do everything to get it done.

The location near the city is nice, the rooms of adequate size, clean, the style according to "W" (Starwood) standards and the bed very good - just what you would expect of a 5* room.

Internet (free - same as car park) works great and if you don't have your own notebook with you you can borrow one of the hotel.

Breakfast is really nice and I can definitelly recommend the Eggs Benedict.

When in Queenstown I mustn't stay at Queenstown Park Hotel - but I definitelly would stay "@ John & Donna's". ;-)

We stayed at the Queenstown Park Hotel for 3 nights at the end of our 3 week tour of New Zealand, and it was the perfect end to our trip. John & Donna's hospitality made our stay in Queenstown unforgettable. They were effortlessly friendly and welcoming and gave great advise on where to eat and places to visit. The hotel itself was incredibly stylish and modern and was the perfect location for us, being about a 5 minute walk from the main centre (so no noise late at night!!). All rooms are very well equipped and so comfortable (the bed was heavenly!). We couldn't recommend this hotel enough, from the evening canape's and wine to the delicious breakfast, everything was just fabulous! If it wasn't so far away i know we'd be back all the time!!!!

This hotel is only 12 months old, but is already amongst the very best places to stay in Queenstown.
The accommodation is first class, with the hardest choice being whether to use the wonderful freestanding bath or the wet-floor power shower. You will also have great fun with the controls for the lights and the window blind.
The breakfast is excellent, both in choice of the food and the quality of cooking.
There is no dinner service, but splendid advice on where to eat in Queenstown from great steaks to haute cuisine - and most restaurants are within easy walking distance.
However, what sets the Boutique Hotel apart is the hospitality of the management team, John and Donna. Nothing is too much trouble, and to meet with them at 6 pm for wine and canapes is the perfect end to your day, or alternatively a very relaxing start to your evening.
I would most certainly stay there again, and will be recommending my friednds who visit Queenstown to do likewise.

Wonderful brand new boutique hotel located within walking distance to downtown. Well apointed with gracious hospitality provided by the managers of the hotel who gave us great recommendations of what to see and do. They also helped organize these things. Couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay in Queenstown!
