Ohh so disappointing.... in the hey day you use to pay $1,000 a night to stay here. It is so run down. It really is a shame with the surrounding stunning views. I couldnt even get a meal. You really cant charge what you do for the state of the rooms and the NO restaurant facility. Glamping at Nuggett Point.

Hi Tracy,We apologize for your disapointment and as there's new management taken over from 14th September, we are looking to go through a major refurbishment next winter and will reopen the restaurant for dinner in the future.Thank you for your feedback and we hope to see you back.

On arrival to our room there was blood on the curtains, toothpaste smeared on the bathroom wall, the tissue box was empty and no soap. The tv didnt have netflix or sky. We booked mainly for the facilities. The bar was not open the night we were there But then found out that the spa was broken and so was the steam room. Overall very disappointing

Great view of the river and the surrounding hills. Enjoyed the spa and movie theatre. Great and helpful staff. The resort is quite dated. No in-house info about the resort facilities. Our room did not have WIFI, TV remote did not work, TV has only two channels and the telephone did not work.

Nice place with nice facilities but I woke early to soak in the hot tub and watch the sunrise but pool facilities don’t open until much later. This is disappointing as we were only there one night and couldn’t make full use of the facilities.

We did thoroughly enjoy our two night stay. Staff were all frendly and helpfuly. We stayed lower level with river views. And although you are paying for the views the rooms and some facilities are so old and rundown the place could definitely do with a renovation. Location was perfect, it is 13mins to Arrowtown and 15mins into Queenstown. There are busses which run on the hour into Queenstown from basically out side the gates or it was only a $28 uber ride. Which is perfect for enjoying that care free night out in Queenstown. Definitely a 7/10 stay.

I would avoid this hotel at all costs. Day 1 - no water Day 2 - contractors drilling on site all day. Fire alarm goes off at 11.30pm due to the onsite manager being intoxicated. Got locked out of our rooms every day. No house keeping. This was honestly like a bad movie
