A nice visit in a quiet tranquil lakeside location. The rooms were nice but the room furniture prevented use of the bedside sockets to charge phones which was a bit of a pain. We had a small balcony the size of an aircon unit, unfortunately it had an aircon unit on it and so was a bit pointless. The hotel...

I'm in the middle of a four night stay here at the Doubletree and have had a pleasant stay thus far. The staff are very welcoming and, upon check-in, I was provided a corner room with both mountain and lake views due to my Hilton Honors status. Amardeep (apologies if spelled incorrectly) at the front desk was incredibly hospitable and...

The hotel is fine, you can use all facilities of Hilton while staying for less money in double tree. However the rooms are more dated and smaller (especially bathrooms) in comparison with Hilton. Lake view is still good. Staff is friendly. Free dvds that you can watch in the room, or visit their cinema. I wouldn't go again, but depending...

First things first this room was by far and away the best we have had all holiday. A king sized bed, a king sized bathroom and a nice living room area and a balcony with a lake view. It was clean and the hotel staff were friendly. So why only average? The hotel is a good 4 miles from the...

Thanks for your review. To add you your comments wifi is free for all HHonors members and enrolment is free! For the surrounding area bidding has closed and it is not sold. Don't see any movement there for awhile. You are 100% correct in selecting a hotel to ensure it meets your needs but I think this is the same...

Though the reception staff was very friendly and great , this hotel is way off the city centre of queens town. A shuttle is available though but better hotels are available at queens town. Only good for people who want to cut off from the city life .

Yes you are correct. Not town centres but a tranquil place 15 mins from town centre by car, shuttle or the best option water taxi. I appreciate you recognising the team for their hospitality.

The DoubleTree is in a picturesque location beside Lake Whakatipu, and is very close to the airport. Being out of town makes it a very quiet place to stay and unwind. The hotel is fairly new, and is decorated to a high standard. There are several good dining options within walking distance. The staff were very helpful, knowledgable and friendly.
