We stayed for 5 days while exploring the region and Queenstown. On arrival we were given a "superior" room with lake view which as it happens is what was booked. This room was in the 500/600 section. The view over the lake is superb BUT the access is terrible. Hotel is in transition phase from Golden Ridges(?) to HI. Much...

Had a Standard room on the first floor. Absolutely fantastic view of The Remarkables and the lake. Good place to stay if you plan on skiing at The Remarkables.....beat the traffic driving up from Queenstown. About a 5 minute drive to Queenstown....not close enough to walk! There is a bus stop at the foot of the hill, if you're not...

We stayed here one night and knew what we'd get with a Holiday Inn, but I must admit the room was really nice and clean. Beds had electric blankets (which I've not experienced back home in UK) and it had super fast Wi-Fi - a must when trying to connect with home whilst away. Bathroom was clean though a little...

My sister and I came up for the wedding of our nephew. I requested a down stairs unit as I have arthritis in my ankles and walking up stairs can be painful and difficult. The unit was up an extremely steep narrow driveway which required further walking up wobbly steps to the room, so we elected to park the car...

The hotel is located a wee way out of Queenstown hub but a regular shuttle service which is prompt and affordable made this not an issue. We were lucky enough to have a recently renovated room which had everything you needed. A super comfy bed with lovely crisp linen. The staff made our stay even better - friendly, courteous and...

Friendly, helpful staff. Clean modern rooms. Cheap shuttle service to town. We were impressed. We would certainly book here again when coming to Queenstown. Special accolade to Jason who went out of his way to be of assistance.

The hotel have got plenty of free parking and free facilities like sauna and spa. very friendly check in staff, restaurant staff and cleaning staff. last but not least, the buffet breakfast is the best I ever had in any other hotels....

On arrival we were staggered to find that the public areas inclusive of reception were under refurbishment. The front desk consisted of a banquet table covered with a black tablecloth. The staff were lethargic and uninterested in providing a welcoming experience. Sadly this property will not be recommended to family and friends.

What a disappointment this is. The room was dirty and we waited two days for it to be released along with the shower fan vent. The only thing going for this place every is the view - fantastic. The toilet seat does not stay up which is difficult, especially for women!! Had a meal tonight for the first time and...
