Scenic Suites Queenstown
Ranked #27 of 59 Hotels in Queenstown
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 April 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We didn't choose it. It was part of a package we bought for 5 days in and around the Fiordlands. Unfortunately there is no air conditioning and we arrived on one of the hottest days of late New Zealand summer. There wasn't a working fan in the room either.We asked for a fan and were given 2 tiny ones.They didn't make much difference. The hotel is like a rabbit warren. It is easy to get lost on the very similar floors. There is a laundry room for the entire block and it is coin operated with only one washer and one dryer. i have a bad knee and so the hotel location wasn't the best for me. It is fairly close to the wonderful Queenstown,but an uphill slug. This is definitely not suitable for disabled or unfit people. I think there are apartments with cooking facilities in this block, but we weren't given that option. On the good side, the bed was very comfortable and the staff very pleasant. I don't think they pay much attention to the general condition of the rooms as we didn't have any chairs to go around our table on the deck (we asked for some and got them) and the washing rack was broken.

Room Tip: Sorry! I checked the swimming pool button by mistake. I don't know if there was one.

We stayed here for 4 days at the end of our amazing trip to New Zealand. The rooms were very comfortable and it felt that we were staying in a 4/5 star hotel. The balcony offered us a lovely view of Lake Wakatipu and the complex was a 10 minute walk from the centre of Queenstown. The staff were really friendly and helpful and offered us use of their umbrellas when we first arrived and the heavens opened. Nothing was too much trouble. There is a free laundry room on the complex, which enabled us to do most of our laundry before flying back to the UK, which was a huge bonus.
We ate in the restaurant on one evening and have a lovely meal, that was tasty and not overpriced.
I would definitely recommend the Scenic Suites and would have no hesitation of returning here again.

Stayed for 4 nights in this hotel. Loved the gorgeous views of Lake Wakatipu from our room. Very close to the center of town, a little on the uphill climb going back from town but only a short jaunt. So close to good restaurants and sights. Very close hike to the gardens that eventually take you to the marina and the mall. The staff was very accommodating and helped us with the booking for activities, and made our visit easy and comfortable. Their recommendations were right on point and so helpful. Will recommend this again. The rooms were spacious and beddings comfortable. Love the clean nicely appointed bathrooms. Kitchen very well equipped. Great place to stay in Queenstown.

We enjoyed 5 days in February at the very good Scenic Suites. The rooms are modern and well appointed with good bathrooms. We had a small balcony that afforded views over the town, the Skyline Gondola and part of the lake. The self service laundry facility as very good. It is a short walk down the hill to the town centre with its many bars and restaurants but quite a steep walk back up. We did not take any meals in the hotel restaurant nor did we use the small bar. But room service was good value one night when we returned late from a day touring. We had a bit of a mixup over the cost of wifi which reception didnt really explain very well. I also thought it was expensive so we used the free wifi in the bars and restaurants in Queenstown. The underground parking was a bit tight but a real plus for a central location.

Room Tip: The higher up the room better the view

We stayed on the top floor with glorious views over Queenstown and looking up at the gondola. The kids loved staying in the adjoining room, and we enjoyed our own space. The rooms were 5 star quality and staff were helpful in directing us to the car park and bags to the room. Would stay here again definitely

We stayed here a while ago (Sep 2010 actually!) but I wanted to put on record what a fantastic place this is for families. We booked adjoining rooms, one for us and one for the kids. They were spacious, clean and well appointed. The property has a fantastic view and is walking distance from the supermarket and restaurants in Queenstown. Although our room was right next to the road, we heard virtually no traffic noise, and it has the added convenience of being near the shuttle bus stops to the ski fields. The staff were friendly and helpful.

We won't hesitate to stay at Scenic Suites again when we next visit Queenstown
