Second floor room with the most amazing view. Clean and comfy. Excellent staff very friendly and helpful. The bed was comfy and the bonus of being on the second floor you could open the curtains and take in the view from bed. We will be back again.

This is probably good value for the location and there was a good view from our room. However, the layout was somewhat odd-nowhere to put suitcases and only 2 hangers in the wardrobe. The internet was painfully slow and there was bad lighting. It was also difficult to get the bathroom warm. The room looked like a typical low-priced ski/beach...

The rooms are great. We got a lake facing one with ensuite and a balcony. The view is really nice. Had dinner at the bistro most nights which was delicious and great value for money. Hot tub and sauna are free and the best thing you could think of after a long day. You can book a private hot tub...

Stayed for 3 nights. Close too transit when their own shuttle isnt running during certain hours. A short ride later and you're in the heart of queenstown. Helpful staff and very accommodating. Would highly recommend instead of more expensive choices in the area.

The view from our room was amazing. The staff very helpful and nice. The free shuttle that they run to/from town is great, especially how a one-way taxi ride is $20. Our room was clean and tidy, our heater broke down after the first night but maintenance staff ensured that we didn't get cold by giving us a replacement immediately.

Was at the Goldridge Resort for 5 nights and was not impressed. They advertise 'free unlimited wifi' yet for standard rooms you only get 250MBs which did not last at all.
