5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My husband and I enjoyed Queenstown for a quick 2 day visit. Central Ridge worked well for us as we were on the go all day. Nice, comfy bed. Very nice bathroom too. Liked the Manuka honey shampoo/lotion also. We would stay again.

The hotel is centrally located but still quiet. The main restaurant area is within walking distance through a nice park. The hotel manager was extremely helpful and very nice. Room was clean and nicely decorated, and the bed was very comfortable. Food was excellent.

Need an extra touch like a bit of luxury,beers, wines in your room charged back. biscuts complimentary in your room. A bit of colour room very brown and no life maybe a wall of beautiful wallpaper,brighter prints.I do interior design i would love to help you

The rooms were extremely clean, the products provided were native and organic to NZ and the house keepers always kept them topped up. Down stairs was a beautiful lounge area with comfortable couches, a fire and relaxing music playing. They also provided board games for those cold nights! The location was fantastic! Right on the ring around Queenstown, we walked into town everyday in 5 minutes. Would absolutely stay here again.

Excellent location, with a short walk into the heart of Queenstown, beautiful spacious room, big comfortable bed and lovely attentive staff. Also very easy off street parking. Highly recommend for other couples.

I had booked a mountain view room and with no knowledge of Queenstown assumed that this would mean a view across the lake to the mountains beyond. My initial disappointment when I realised the hotel was a street back from the lake and there were no water views, was soon overcome when I saw the great view up to the Sky Gondola above Queenstown and especially when it snowed overnight and I opened the curtains to a winter wonderland! Our room was one of the largest I have had with a big bathroom and 2 very comfy lounge chairs and footstool to relax with. There is also a very nice guest lounge area on the lower ground floor with comfy couches and an open fire. The hotel is about 5 mins walk to the shops and restaurants in the main area of Queenstown and about 10 mins from the Wharf area. Perfectly positioned as it is close to everything yet far enough away to be very peaceful and noise free.

I loved this hotel! The rooms were comfortable, spacious and warm, and immaculately clean. The communal areas are also spotless, and the location is fantastic. Finally, every member of staff we met was charming, friendly and went out of their way to help us. We would definitely stay here fact, I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Queenstown!

Great location just 5 min walk from the main street in Queenstown. Room was large with excellent shower, bath and cable TV. The front desk staff were so welcoming, helpful and made the stay so enjoyable. Will definitely be back :)

I was disappointed by the view from the hotel. I read the review that it face the lake but can only see trees!! I must say the room was very big and service ok. The distance to the centre is abt 10 mins walk through the steep slope. My advice for ppl staying in this hotel to drop at blue peak lodge and walk abt 5 mins to the hotel which is nearer than from the centre.

1) Location is a short 5 minute walk to the main street of Queenstown. Do note however, that this shortest route goes through a park that isn't lit at night. 2) Parking is 4 outdoor lots within the compound. It isn't much, but I didn't have problems with parking the 2 nights I stayed. 3) Rooms were clean, spacious and cosy. 4) The front desk staff was disarmingly friendly and made the stay very enjoyable. He gave many helpful suggestions when bad weather threatened our sightseeing plans.
