gorgeous views stunning location

The one thing we found difficult was not having a second mirror. We were two girls in a 2 bed appartment with one bathroom. It would have been a hell of a lot easier to have a second mirror somewhere so that we didn’t have to wait for the bathroom to do the hair and make up.

Stunning position....comes at a cost

Beautiful view from the Whakatipu suite. Unrivaled. But...it’s approx 15-20 mins from the town area. Wonderful staff in all areas of the hotel. Quite a distance to get to our suite, and 2 lifts. Dinner at The Whakatipu Grill was superb.

Wish we could had stayed longer!

Pros: Everything - the Clean room, spacious, comfortable beds and the view!
Location: Location is a bit out of the way from town but the free shuttle service and water taxi is very convenient. Close to the airport
We checked into the Hilton for one night on our first trip to Queenstown. We wished we could had extended it. We used the free shuttle bus service to and from the hotel to Queenstown (town area). This has to be booked. We got the water taxi back from town as we hadn't booked the shuttle back. The water taxi is $10 each and we had such an enjoyable trip. The room was clean, bed was very comfortable and the view we had from level 8 was stunning. Thank you Hilton, We will be back!

be selective

Pros: Site location and facilities very good, Service excellent Thank you to a great concierge.
Cons: See notes above about kitchen and location of room. Car parking is at a premium and could be an issue in peak season, as the hotel is out of town.
This is a very large prestigious complex on a great site. Be aware that a map of the site and your room location will enhance your stay . Our room was above an entry door, constantly banging with night arrivals, also above a restaurant with the emptying large bottles into the waste and waste disposal, on a front street location. This really compromised our sleep and rest. The facility is excellent, the staff were very helpful to us in an emergency situation we had and the quality of room fit out was as per advertising. However, the kitchen facility in our suite did not have essential items for cooking..no mixing bowl or microwave bowls, no utensils or chopping board... simply minimum plate and cutlery serving for 2.

Pros: The view.
Cons: Better and more engaged and attentive staff. More staff rostered on during peak check in's.
Location: There is a lovely coffee shop/deli downstairs, however unfortunately the coffee was terrible and the food was pre-pared and dry.
Compared to our previous hotel stay in Queenstown, at another facility in June 2017, our room was much, much smaller and cramped. We didnt enjoy the customer service at this hotel at all. Most of the staff were vague and not present. Due to road works on the bridge, getting into Queenstown by car was less than ideal. More staff to be rostered on at reception during peak check ins. At times there were in excess of 20 people waiting in the lobby, blocking the lobby area to other guests coming in and out, with only one person checking in the groups at the check in desk.
