We had a wonderful weekend break and are looking forward to going back again. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the room and amenities were top class. My partner had a lovely few hours enjoying a massage and relaxing in the spa. Lovely quiet surrounds and beautiful views.

Just want to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Distinction Nugget Point Boutique hotel last weekend.

This was our second weekend getaway ( we stayed last september), and once again we were thrilled by the amazing views over the Shotover river,  the helpfulness and  friendliness  of the staff, the lovely decor and cleanliness of our room, the world class spa, the amazing dining experience both in the breakfast room ( the muffins and pastries are delicious) and the restaurant! It was a real bonus to have the  wonderful piano recital by one of the staff on the steinway! There is just so much to do at this boutique hotel - we didn't even get around to using the gym or squashcourts -which we remember from lasttime as being superbly equipped , with breathtaking views. (it has to have the best scenic views of any gym in the world!) The weather was superb for our stay, so we did the Ben Lomond 4hr walk and the moonlight trail 5hrs- both fantastic and within  10 minutes drive from the hotel. It was a wonderful stay and we will be back.

Room Tip: The shotover rooms have the best views, but the garden view rooms get the sun

We stayed here due to attending a wedding at Arrowtown and the reception close by. The hotel staff are all very friendly and welcoming and quickly dealt with any requests we had. We got upgraded to Shotover Suite on arrival and so had a fantastic view over the Shotover River. The room has a very comfortable bed. The hotel is a short distance from Queenstown itself, which means that it is quiet and private.

We were on honeymoon and chose this venue for price and privacy. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Although a short drive from the town it is a very clean and enjoyable place to stay. We made good use of the tennis courts and there are facilities / activities to enjoy near by. We would stay again if we return to the New Zealand and would be happy to recommend this venue to our family and friends.

Room Tip: Chose a room with a river view.

We stayed in Distinction after booking a last minute stay at a great price. The price was for one of the garden view rooms, however upon arriving we had been upgraded to one of the shotover view rooms. This room was fantastic, large, comfy bed, nice spa bath - overall a great room with a great view.

The only downside was that we opted to stay an extra night due to the hotel being so good until this point, however we where downgraded to one of the garden stay rooms for our remaining night. Unfortunately the standards in these rooms wern't nearly as high. The beds where very hard and uncomfy, a bit noisy next to the small crowded car park, a small bathroom with a shower.

The facilities at the hotel where very good with a few hitches. The spa is very nice, the pool/steam room/ sauna where operating great.Unfortunately the Jacuzzi wasn't operating which was a shame. I did try out the Squash court which was great, the hotel rackets could do with being replaced as they have no grip.


Service was great. Location is a fair way out of QT (10-15 mins), but I like that.

Overall; The hotel was great value for what we paid, especially for a shotover view room. However the garden/car park view rooms aren't such good value. However this could be resolved with a bit of a make over, a lick of paint, a new matteress and brightening the bathroom up a bit. The difference between the two rooms was like staying in 2 different hotels!

Room Tip: If at all possible ensure booking one of the upstairs shotover view rooms.

Just wanted to say thanks for the amazing hospitality.

We stayed here 6 nights and couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. Hired a car and had a great time.

We got massages - great, we went for daily swims in the heated pool, used the gym, sauna and steam room, monsoon shower heads in the spa area, all excellent

Breakfast each morning in front of the fire was more than expected
The dinners we had there was also very good.
Used room service and made use of the cinema room without issue

If by any chance we are lucky enough to go back to Queenstown I would enquire availiability here again.

The whole crew there were amazing. Thanks all

Room Tip: You have to get a room looking over the river.

We were immediately upgraded although it was our first stay there. The room was spacious and very comfortable; and so peaceful being away from the hub of Queenstown.The staff were exceptional and I can not praise them highly enough. We will definitly stay there on our next visit to Queenstown.
