If you are looking for a luxury hotel in Queenstown, Central Ridge is not the hotel for you. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable and affordable room within walking distance to downtown Queenstown, this is the hotel for you. My wife and I stayed at Central Ridge as part of our honeymoon tour though Thailand, New Zealand and...

Super location and lovely service and the room was well presented BUT in hindsight I wish we had shopped around as there was cheaper and just as nice accommodation around. I'm as we had a car i would have even considered looking slightly out of town as we tended to go out for the whole day anyway.

Nice hotel located close to CBD. Nice big and clean room. Yes we got a view of Bobs Peak,but you had to stand right in corner of the room to see it. Was lucky enough to get early checkin which was a plus. Staff very good. Breakfast not so good. Free off street parking available. Our room was on ground...

The room was comfortable, the shower excellent (almost blown away by the pressure!) and the staff were very welcoming. I wanted to give the place five stars, because there is nothing wrong with it, and many things that were great, but it didn't quite...

Good location close to the central area of Queenstow via a short walk down the hill. Great breakfast and friendly hosts. Lounge and reading room was very relaxing. On iste parking is definitely a bonus as street parking is hard to find.

We stayed 3 nights here and it was a base for our adventures in Queenstown and Milford Sound. The location is extremely convenient, just a 5 min walk away from the main town centre. Our stay was comfortable, and cooked breakfast (with a choice of eggs, bacon, mushrooms, toast etc.) was offered daily. There is also cable tv in the...

Stayed for 5 nights and had a lovely time. The rooms are clean and spacious with a wonderful balcony that gave us the mountain view. Location for us was perfect. A short walk to the town center that was comfortable to walk back and forth to a couple of times a day.

Central Ridge Boutique Hotel (“Central Ridge”) is perfectly positioned right in the heart of Queenstown, and it is a stone throw away from dozens of restaurants, outdoor cafes, and recreational activities that occupy the breezy waterfront and easy-going pedestrian malls. Central Ridge offers well-appointed, cozy and spacious rooms with a comfortable bed and continental breakfast. The team have plenty of local knowledge to guide and advice to you the best restaurants in town, fun filled outdoor activities. The attractions nearer to Central Ridge Boutique Hotel includes:- - Pedestrian mall at Queenstown centre (walking distance 2-3minutes); - Restaurants and outdoor cafe along side waterfront at Lake Wakatipu (walking distance 4-5 minutes); - Queenstown Garden (walking distance 2-3 minutes); - Steamer Whaft for the cruise “Lady of the Lake” to Walter Peak. They said no trip to Queenstown is complete without a cruise to Walter Peak High Country Farm (walking distance 4-5 minutes to Steamer Whaft); - Skyline Gondola (walking distance 10 minutes); - Coronet Peak ski area (driving 20 minutes) - Remarkable ski area (driving 40 minutes) - Vineyard tour activities (driving about 20 minutes) Our boutique hotel offers a very unique experience.
