Firstly, let me solve a few mysteries.
1) Queenstown has only had clean potable tap water for 12 months, so ignore those who blame the hotel for the water supply....they should blame the government, after all it only took them 130 years to achieve drinking water !
2) There are many levels of accommodation at this place, from miners accommodations to family style rooms, and some may be judging all the rooms by their choice of accommodation, not the facility.
3) New management has grabbed this place by the horns and made it turn around...a credit to them.
That said, my stay was pleasant, with cheerful staff, clean and quiet room, food portions the size of hubcaps, and a price that is more than reasonable. An honest establishment without pretence.
I would commend the Silver Hills to anyone wanting these qualities from a hotel which is located in one of the most remote areas of Tasmania. I will be back when next i visit.
