This hotel in Queenstown is a beautiful hotel with views of the lake. However, we were hoping for something near the downtown area of Queenstown, and the hotel is actually located about a 10-15 minute drive from that shopping district.
We came in
a day early, hoping that they would be able to accommodate us with very little problems. The hotel also matched the price posted on this travel site, which saved us a little bit of money.
I think it's silly that this hotel charged for wifi use. Even some of the motels we stayed at during our road trip across New Zealand had free internet access. I have to say there is free internet access near the lobby and restaurants (to my knowledge), but not to have it in the room without having to pay additional monies is just silly and quite a disappointment for a hotel of this caliber.
I also should mention they have a shuttle and water taxi to the downtown area.
The views were nice, the people were friendly, and the price wasn't great but wasn't bad . I would probably stay somewhere else next time to be closer to the city so I could just go out and walk around rather than having to drive/take a shuttle/cab/water taxi to get to the heart of Queenstown.
