Nice stay

Absolutely great room with king size bed, decent kitchen and nice view over the lake. The room was a good size too rather than being crammed. Secure parking too.

Great view of the temarkables

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Even enjoyed the hill walk back up ( most of the time ). Noise proof glass was a bonus and the large glass windows were great. The one bedroom was excellent having great cooking facilities. Close enough to town. Loved it and would definitely recommend it to anyone

Beautiful hotel, minus the food poisoning & staff!

We loved our stay here. Apart from food poisoning from room service, rude "manager" didn't care and we are definitely taking this matter further. Great room and great location though.

Convenient location, close to centre

Pros: I liked the design of the rooms and the quality of the furnishings
Cons: Nothing that I can think of
Location: It is close to the centre of Queenstown and all that it offers. We especially enjoyed the eating experiences in town.
We enjoyed the well-designed layout of the accomodation. Everything was clean and comfortable. We had a fabulous view of the lights around Lake Wakatipu in the evenings from our suite. The staff were very helpful and pleasant.

Nice Hotel Close to City Centre

Pros: The good big beds and spaciousness of the room and bathroom etc.
Cons: Covered in walkway to get from the accommodation block to the reception
Location: It's Queenstown - it's absolutely magic with heaps to do for everyone.
I had a very comfortable and well appointed room. It was ground floor and unfortunately no views of the beautiful scenery. But I wasn't in the room for long so no real concern about that. Wo-if was promoting Buffet breakfast as $15 (approximately). Hotel wouldn't honour that because they were actually $25 and used the "approximately" as an excuse to get out of it. I must admit I thought $15 sounded to good to be true, so paid the $25 and had a good value breakfast. The Hotel is built on a tricky site and a has made maximum use f the space, but it does mean a bit of walking to get from some rooms to the reception or dining area, some of it going outside for a very short walk - weather was great so no problem when we stayed.
