    Pocket Guide: Otago

    It’s hard to describe just how beautiful Central Otago is, but scenes from the Lord of the Rings films were shot here, which might give you some idea. Its landscape consists of brown and orange flat plains embedded with crystal blue lakes that sit under jagged snow-topped mountains. As you might imagine, the region is a paradise for skiers, but wine-lovers, outdoorsy types, extreme sports enthusiasts and even the most casual travelers will also fall for this incredible place. Why not stay with us in one of our Central Otago hotels?

    Skiing in Central Otago

    Travelers who plan on skiing in Central Otago will truly be spoilt for choice. You can head for the slopes of the The Remarkables mountain range overlooking Queenstown, where different levels of terrain caters to all skiers from beginners to advanced. A half pipe and tubing park throw in some extra adrenaline pumping snow activities. For those arriving late in the season, Coronet Peak often keeps its snow past mid-October. Perfect for those who want a holiday without the crowds!

    Other amazing ski slopes can be found near Wanaka, north of Queenstown and off the northwest edge of Central Otago. Beginners will still feel right at home but this area is ripe for advanced skiers and snowboarders, with 19 advanced slopes in Treble Cone, heli-skiing available if you feel like splurging for the ultimate ride, and also plenty of off-piste trails to discover.

    Of course, when all that snow melts, the terrain really shows its true colours in more ways than one. The spectacular landscape glows with lush greenery and tones of brown, and the warm temperatures allow you to enjoy outdoor activities like white water rafting, skydiving, mountain biking, paragliding and more. Wot more could you want?

    If you’re looking for more of a laid back holiday, Central Otago’s provides vast golf courses, wineries and fruit picking at local orchards. Whether you’re exploring the limits of your body, or searching for some relaxation, the quiet and charming rural towns of Cromwell and Alexandra will keep you dreaming. Check out our range of Central Otago accommodation and get ready for a holiday to remember.

    "Great location and fantastic staff"
    We stayed here for two nights and can not fault the Hotel or the staff. The room was a good size and a very large comfortable bed. Every staff member we came in contact with was very friendly and pleasant and nothing was a problem, this made for a very enjoyable stay.

    Copthorne is comfortable and clean and located in a great location. Hotel staff are friendly with affordable and delicious food offered within their restaurant/bar. However they have limited free wifi and considering the length of time I stayed there, I believe more wifi allowance could be offered.

    "close to town centre"
    The room had a strong smell of damp. It was clean and tidy although a little tired in the décor. The balcony should not have had an opening door out to it - it was a foot wide and the handrail seemed too low (probably not due to council requirements).

    "Great location"
    Only have 50mg data or half an hour of free wifi in the Lobby - had a bit of trouble with it. Hotel needs to be updated a bit - rooms a bit dated and bathroom steams up something terrible and everything gets wet - ventilation not good and no window to help. The upside - great location near the Octagon, bar staff great, great heater in the room - bed reasonably comfortable. I would stay here again on location and cleanliness alone.
