Room with a view

Loved the view, like where the hotel was in Queenstown. The sofa bed was the issue with all space in the lounge taken up when folded down so could not open the cupboard to the fridge, the door of which opened one way whilst the fridge door opened the other so the space was rather impractical. By all the accounts the sofa bed was not comfortable either. So suggest review size and space of the sofa bed

Average Stay in a Good location

Facing Lake Wakatipu the location can't get any better. There is no manual control for air conditioning in the room which is big let down. Though there is a heater in the room for winter, it doesn't help you much in summer when you need a quick relief from heat. In some rooms the balconies are shared. The lighting in the room is gloomy. The food and room service is good. Wifi is slow during peak hours. The sky tv doesn't give you many options. The bathrooms are much smaller and you might feel cramped for space. the outdoor pool and massage is good. Overall: Not bad but better options are available.

Magnificent location

What a beautiful picturesque location. We had a lovely stay in a warm cosy comfortable room with outdoor Balcony. The open fireplace in the guest area was inviting, the staff friendly and the view spectacular. The mall and restaurants were a short walk away. Lovely.

Overall Good.

Good value for money. The only thing was we booked a lakeview room expecting it to be right in front of the lake but the room was on the ground floor... Other than that all good.

qtown wedding

room was ok except for the drone of the air con unit outside, staff helpful friendly, caught off guard with $100 deposit after everything was paid for on credit card. No Buffet dinners at the time of review only breakfast. Brilliant inhouse bar, after 5pm buy a drink and you get complimentary wireless. 6min walk to township. View and Location spectacular.

JUST HORRIBLE

Our hotel experience was horrible, they said wireless internet was available in the hotel, well it was just not in our room, there were no hangers in the room, the event calendar in the room was for the wrong month, it was soooooo hot in our room, and the outlets in the bathroom did not work. Also the phones were down for days as well as the 'computer room' where you had to pay for internet. And lets not forget the $8.60 charge to make two 2 minute local calls. The worst hotel experience I have ever had.
