Stayed here 2-nights of 5 night Queenstown vacation visit. Diamond member staying on points until we could move to preferred location downtown-lakefront @ Crowne Plaza. Nice rooms, gracious front desk staff, free parking underground. Near the airport but on a small section of lake that requires a $20NZ round-trip per person water-taxi to waterfront Q'town. Would not stay here if...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 20 September 2016

We stayed at this hotel in Queenstown for two nights before heading to Te Anau and Milford Sound. The hotel was fantastic and would definitely stay here again next time. - The hotel is next door to the Hilton in Kawarau Village. It is a short taxi ride from the airport (~NZ$20), however it is located on the other side...

Clean new nicely decorated. Front desk was very helpful. Tv reception could use American fine tuning and it would have been nice to have space in the bathroom to rest toiletries. The room's design was clean and interesting. Bed and linens were top notch

This is a newer DoubleTree on the lake and connected to the Hilton sin the same location. Actually morning breakfast is shared by the two. Upscale rooms with small kitchenette, comfy Hilton beds, modern bath. It is a $10 water taxi ride from downtown Orr take the free shuttle. Be sure to book both. Charges 1.5% to pay with Visa.

Very scenic but we overpaid for the stay as the Hotel subsequently advertised cheaper rates almost half what we paid which was unfair!!The breakfast was very good and plenty of choice items.The Dinner at the Chinese Restaurant was Excellent.

Shares many amenities with the Hilton, the Doubletree was very nice and comfortable accommodations. The views were spectacular. If you're heading to ski slopes, wineries, or Milford Sound it's on the right side of town. If you're looking to spend time or do activities in Queenstown proper, it's one of the furthest accommodations from downtown.

This was our second stay here, nice resort, good rooms and friendly, helpful staff. The resort is out of Queenstown and accesible with a free shuttle bus, which needs to be booked or $10 for the local water taxi ( which is just the best way to get around ). Last water taxi leaves at 10pm, after that a normal...

3 stars because there's no vending machine, no store to buy anything to drink or get a snack. They had no cookies and I was told I could call room service for a Diet Coke! No way I'm paying room service prices for a Diet Coke to be delivered. I'm a diamond member and thus get a complimentary breakfast. I...

We stayed at the Hilton next door, then traveled for a few days, coming back to the Doubletree for a night to catch an early flight out of Queenstown. For a one night layover I guess the hotel will work sand we selected based on the cheaper rate, but even that is a strech. Our room was tiny, more like...
