Yes this hotel is not inside Queenstown and I wouldn't stay here without a car, but it is a short 10 minute drive to the centre of Queenstown, the setting is beautiful - directly situated next to the lake, magnificent views.
The room is laid out like a mini-suite. It is tastefully decorated and very comfortable, not spacious but not cramped either. The little kitchenette had everything we needed for preparing light meals, and when we discovered the wine glasses were not matching (1 white 1 red) we had matching ones delivered within 10 minutes.
The staff were very professional and pleasant, my only comment is none that I met were local so the advice was very restricted to the usual Queenstown tourist attractions. (Bungy jumping, TS Earnslaw, etc).
