Shotover Lodge

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Location was great. In between Arrowtown and also Queenstown City Centre. Great room views and it is located pretty much opposite (diagonal to) Onsen hot pools. Great value for money rooms, great communal kitchen and lounge. Staff are really helpful and accommodating. We will definitely come here again.

Nice to be a bit of of town, and a great spot if you are looking for skiing or the Shotover Jet. But isolation comes at the cost of almost non-existant phone reception which was sorely missed when we burned through our limited internet allowance quickly (1GB for three night stay). Clean and comfy though, and a great spot to lay my head.

Clean tidy large room with great view at a great price. Only downers were an door to the outside that closed and banged every time someone used it.Also the light setup needs attention as the bedside lamp could not be switched off except at the wall which meant getting out of bed. Apart from that all good.

Shotover Lodge was a great place to stay for our whirlwind, 2 night trip to Queenstown. The lady at the desk was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and tidy with all the basic amenities we needed. Onsen hot pools just across the road as well as Nugget Point. Shotover Jet just down the road. Only a short 5 min drive into central queenstown which was very handy. We would definitely recommend staying here as it was perfect as a base to use while exploring the area. Thank you!

We had a one night stay at the lodge on route to Milford Sounds. The room was very clean, there is a laundry available as well as a well kitted out communal Kitchen which we used. It is a short drive from Queenstown central. Easy access to the car from our room.

We stayed here for 3 nights and I would definitely recommend staying here. It's a 5 min drive from central Queenstown so I would definitely recommend having a car. Rooms are really clean and well maintained, also the decor is fresh and light. Very spacious too! Beds are firm and comfortable, had a good nights sleep. We got free 1GB of internet each and it worked really well. (Usage may depend on how many night you stay) All in all for the location, price and quality I would say it is excellent.

Good stay for the price, comfortable bed, warm modern bathroom and kitchen although no coffee, tea or sugar were provided. Great location, not in the heart of town but not too far out. If you're looking for affordable accommodation this is for you

Our room was conveniently placed on the ground floor with access to the car. Space was at a premium but the room had everything we needed. Shower was good. Basics were in the room and there was access to a kitchen if needed. parking was inadequate for the number of people in the night we were there.

Hubby and I stayed one night. Rooms were clean and well layed out. We were on ground floor and had outdoor table and chairs which doesn't get afternoon sun. Would I stay here again yes but would request a room on other side to make use of sun . Not far from center of queenstown or arrow town.

I stayed last week for 3 nights. Our first room wouldn't lock so we were moved to another room. The rooms were adequate but the location was a little further out of Queenstown than I realised. Nice and close to the jet boat if you have that planned though. The wifi was sporadic and quite often wouldn't work at all. If you need or rely on wifi I would pick another place. It was ok overall for the price but I wouldn't stay there again. Rooms were clean.
