Would do it again

This was an unexpected treat. It's away from the bustle of downtown, but very accessable to anything one wants to do. The rooms are large, the dining venues elegant, but comfy, and the breakfast can be one's big meal of the day. The staff we encountered were very special people - fun to be around.

Use the bus. Queenstown has an excellent transit system. Buses are on time and the drivers love to pass along tips to riders from out of town.

Excellent stay

We had a wonderful stay at the Distinction nugget point. The hotel was wonderful and better than expected. The view of the Shotover river was superb from the rooms, and location was only 10-15 minutes from Queenstown. We liked to get away from all the noise etc, but a car is definetly recommended. The hotel is only a 2-3 minutes from the Shotover jetboats and the popular Onsen private pools (very romantic). We had 2 children with us and the hotel gave us a free upgrade to a suite to make it more comfortable for our stay. Do not think twice about booking this hotel, and we found some great prices.
