Central Ridge Boutique Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Enjoyed staying at Central Ridge. Well run, very clean, relaxed atmosphere. KJ was amazingly helpful and obliging. Lovely breakfast. Close to park, with a memorial to Scott of the Antarctic, plus amazing sunsets. Easy access down to beach and promenade at Queenstown or along road to the Queenstown shops.

We stayed for 2 nights and have been happy with our stay. We liked that it is just a couple of minutes to walk to the centre and there was no need to use the car. There is limited space for offstreet parking. The room was spacious and modern. The bathroom had large tub for 2 people. The shower was over the bathtub which was a bit uncomfortable to use. All in all bathroom and room was clean and tidy. There was no view out of our room, but shared courtyard with seating. There is a Sauna and a large lounge, breakfast is available. Friendly reception. We enjoyed our stay and will consider the Central Ridge for future stay.

Great stay, warm and homely and exactly what we wanted, clean spacious room with all we needed, great service from KJ, lovely feel to the whole place, enjoyed staying somewhere small rather than a large impersonal hotel, we will be back.

The best place i have visited in a long time. I highly recommend the bazar. This is a must see hotel. In the bazar u get amazing serves, the barfay is the most amazing food ever and dont even get me strted on the desert bar. Izzy

We spent two nights at the hotel and room was cozy with all you needed plus it has a lovely outdoor area to enjoy a sun and Queenstown pure mountain air. The location is unbeatable as you close to the town center (Great) and in the meantime no noise at night so good sleep is Guaranteed!!!

Spacious room for two singles travelling together. Loved the big bathtub after a day of skiing! Excellent location to the centre of town and bars and restaurants. The staff were very helpful when checking in and also throughout our stay.

The hotel was very close to the centre of town and our room was large and comfortable and warm. However it would benefit from room service and a mini bar, as there was only water (other than tea and coffee) available.

My brother and I stayed in the Central Ridge Hotel, between the second and third British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand. The hotel is well furnished with a fantastic shared lounge, the rooms are sizeable and comfortable. KJ and his team made us all feel welcome and did everything they could to make the stay memorable. They provided a good breakfast selection and were on hand with advice on the locality.The hotel is very close to the fabulous Queenstown Gardens and the town centre, all be it up a steep hill. Then everything in Queenstown seemed to be uphill. Queenstown is a great place to visit and Central Ridge Hotel compliments the town very well. Excellent thanks to KJ and his colleagues.

Was in a very good location. A very quiet private room. Pleasant hosts. Clean facilities.Only Negatives, bed needs upgrading. Cofee plunger kind of a standard these days and a few utensils would be great for nibbles etc.

Overnight trip to Queenstown for an evening at the Event Centre, walking distance. Offstreet parking, clean and friendly staff. Amazing huge bath. Everything you need. We didnt have breakfast as had a reservation elsewhere.
