Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 August 2012

I would love to tell you more but it's a well kept amazing secret place in queenstown - ok ok so I will say that if you want luxury for less then this is the place to check out. They look after you, make you feel pampered and give you that extra service you've been looking for. The rooms are great, they accommodate more than 2 people to a room if you have one child and if you have two and want an adjoining room theyhave these too. The pool is amazing, with the jacuzzi and spa facilities this is the best reason to go. As well as the views of the shotover river!

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for river views and if you need a two bedroom place ask for the apartment on the g...

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday to Queenstown, where we stayed at 3 different hotels. The Nugget Point Hotel was definitely the best accommodation that we had on our trip. It was our honeymoon and we were upgraded to a wonderful room with the most amazing view of the Shotover River. The staff were incredibly helpful and generous with their time, the food was lovely and the overall atmosphere of the hotel was one of warmth and friendliness. Highly recommended.

It was so bad i don't know were to start.

We had booked and paid for a River View Suite to finish off our 5 week trip in style but when we checked in we were told they had no suites left and we either had to take a "carpark" view room or they would refund our money and we would have to find something else which was out of the question after skiing all day and everwhere else full. As compensation for this we were given a $50 credit given that the room and suite price difference was around $300 this was the first of many insults fired at us, including;

1: the tv from the 70's took ten min to warm up then stopped working altogether
2: there was no hot water in the mornings which we told them about but as we found out the next morning while trying to rush out nothing was done about it and we had more cold showers.
3: the advertised heated towel rail did not work.
4: the advertised bath robes were not in the room and we found out that they didn't even have any for us to use.
5: the doors to the verandah right next to the hotel entry could not be locked leaving us and our belongings vunurable
6: paint peeling off the ceiling
7: simple things like no pen supplied with the stationary and not all the tea and coffees replenished after our first day.

After 35yrs of world travel this is one of the worst experiences we have ever had.

Don't waste your time and money on this place.

We stayed for 5 nights and were very impressed with the service provided by every one of the staff.I was quite unwell and asked to move to a gardenview room as they are the sunniest. Our river view room was beautiful and very spacious so I felt embarrassed about changing.The staff were totally obliging, offering to assist with the move and then providing a soothing drink with some tasty goodies.I have never experienced this level of attention in any other hotel and I have stayed in very many both here and overseas.We both loved the gorgeous facilities including the great movie room- a unique experience.Well done to Andrew, Phoebe and Matt and your super friendly helpful team.I wish you every success.Of course we'd love to return.

We recently had 3 nights at Nugget Point, it was unbelievably bad. It may have been cheap, $119.00NZ per night & in this case I guess you get what you pay for. On arrival & during our stay there was this old oil cooking smell through-out the hotel, including the room. I rang reception when there were no face cloths, they bought 2 hand towels & advised thats what they used. Don't try taking a quick shower, it takes 10-15 minutes for the hot water to arrive. Then when you do shower the water floods onto the floor (I guess that's what you use the hand towel face cloths for) The pillows are hard & there are no options when we rang reception. The sliding doors to the deck couldn't be locked & when closed had a gap allowing the cold in. There was a huge stain on the bed cover which was really off putting. If you want a tea or coffee in your room the cups are so small one tea bag would do three cups. There are insufficient car-parks, so had to park our car out on the road 2 nights. BUT on a positive note the view from the room was spectacular!!

We were so impressed with this Hotel, the location is perfect because is about 15 minutes from town and a short easy trip to Coronet Peak. The staff was really friendly giving us a warm welcome and a tour. They have an amazing spa area, you can use it after 6 pm and sometime in the morning. But it was perfect for me since I only went skiing a couple times and while my husband was skiing I relaxed at the spa.
We also booked a wonderful couples massage, good price.
They have a nice small private movie theatre and the chef makes pop corn for you for free! The rooms are comfortable and warm. And they're dark and quiet at night wch guaranteed a good sleep.
The restaurant is wonderful, I had the lamb and my husband had the salmon, it was perfectly cooked and the views from the restaurant are gorgeous.
This is only my first time in Queenstown and I loved it. we're planning a trip next year and we're definitely staying at Distinction.
