Staff were very very friendly. Nice and clean, the size of the room compared to the pictures on website was very disappointing especially for the price.

Very good position at the lake, clean and friendly. The building is old, but it’s nice and tidy.

EPIC views, nice beds (normal matress where you can have a proper horizontal sleep, not like in other hotels like Hyatt where you are welcome to sleep in a V shape), hot spa was very handy to contrast the cold swimming pool. Dinner menus are very delicious and cheap! We were very surprised to find out that meal in hotel beats local food stalls all by price, quality and convenience. Among negatives - sauna was closed, I understand some Covid regulations. And breakfasts does not worth it, so don't prebook it. Even though it is standard "continental" breakfast, similar to other hotels, but it is consists of fried sausage, fried bacon, fried toast bread and fried eggs plus canned beans.

Hi there Susan, I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! I can share that those views never lose their charm, we are very lucky to have such beauty here in Queenstown. I am sorry that your experience in the pool area was a negative one. Here at Mercure we welcome families and their children regardless of their nationality and encourage fun around the pool area during school holidays! Thank you for your feedback. Kindest, Joshua Mitchell Assistant Manager

The best place to stay in Queenstown without a doubt! All of the staff are so welcoming, friendly and super helpful and we really appreciated the room upgrade. An amazing room with everything you need ... comfy beds, awesome bathroom and so, so quiet and peaceful. The pool and spas were fantastic for us and our teenage son. We'll be back for sure!
