“Perfect Destination! Perfect Property! Great Facilities”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

We stayed 3 nights in the Presidential Suite and had a blast. Great view overlooking the Shotover River with our own private outdoor spa bath. Staff are professional and assisted us with our requests. Breakfast was scrumptious and the facilities was what we needed. The massage was totally relaxing! Highly recommended.
A memorable place for us and we shall be back!

We booked 3 nights as it meant an upgrade to the River View which was fantastic. However if we had been aware of the 2 night special would probably have used that.

The staff were exceptionally helpfull and accommodating and went to great efforts to help make a birthday celebration extra special for our companion.

The evening restaurant has incredible views and the meals superb, couldnt fault anything.

There is also a light menu but this was not offered until the second night.

We enjoyed the movie theatre experience but the pool was only available before 1000 and after 1800 unless you booked into the spa which was disappointing.

The hotel is in need of maintenance especially the exterior. Details like dirty windows, floors not cleaned or vacuumed and several other minor but noticeable things should not be an issue in a Boutique hotel advertised as luxury.

A fantastic deal, thank you grab one. The hotel is staffed by professional helpful, friendly people who go out of their way to be welcoming. The breakfast on the deal is continental but there is enough muesli, fruit, bread, cold meat and cheese to satisfy anybody unless they are a complete pig.The meal in the evening is from a great menu and the steak is to die for. I told the manager Andrew that his chef should have a government health warning as the food is superb and you just want more. The view from the restaurant over the Shotover River is superb and could only be bettered if they ran the jet boats at night with spotlights on them.As a previous reviewer said, the private cinema is a great experience as is the spa pool and gym.We will return ( my partner thinks the same and will post her own review. )

Room Tip: If you can book a room overlooking the gorge it will just cap the whole experience

I spent two nights at the hotel. We stayed in a garden view room which over looks the carpark area etc. The room was very spacious and i just loved the location. All the staff were very friendly and acccomodating. The breakfast we had was just the continental buffet, however, this was nice. I only had one 3 course meal, but i could not fault the food at all. The only issue was that the supplied dressing gowns felt very hard and so did the sheets on the bed, but thats just very minor. The hotel is only about a 10min drive from Coronet Peak ski field or Queenstown. The spa, sauna etc can only be used from 6.30 to 10 in the morning & evening.

Room Tip: Try and get a room looking over the river.

Stayed here on a grab-one deal that was fantastic. Staff friendly and helpful, we felt very welcome despite being on a deal. Enjoyed the best steak I've had in ages, the view over the gorge from the table stunning. The private movie theatre is a great experience, I would take my own DVD next time as I had already seen a lot of the selection on hand. The Spa was beautiful and as a treat I enjoyed a facial treatment. More than just a hotel, I would choose to stay here again. The location is superb, scenic and peaceful. The bus stops outside and taxi to town is $20 so you can get by without a car if flying in.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the gorge would be first choice, ours was a garden view.

I wanted to take my partner away for a long birthday weekend. I was searching for a place that was secluded, boutique, had an on-site spa but was still close to Queenstown (Not an easy find!). The moment the taxi pulled up at the entrance I knew that I had chosen the right location! Once we walked through the big doors into a marble floored reception we were greeted by friendly staff who invited us to sit down at the reception desk while we were being checked in. Before heading to our room we were giving a tour of the facilities (Restaurant & Bar, Breakfast area, Gym, Squash Court, Purpose built Cinema room, Spa & Pool, Sauna, Steam Room and Tennis Courts). We were then went to our room which was overlooking the Shot Over River, we were not disappointed as we stood on our private balcony and was struck by the fact that we could not hear anything, nothing! This is an extremely odd sensation in todays frantic world. The only sound was the occasional rumble of the Shot Over Speedboat going past (this was not an annoying sound as you might imagine).

When it came to getting into Queenstown we had 2 options. Catch a taxi (order a Green Cab via reception and the fare is only $20 each way) or a bus (there is a bus stop on both sides of the road and a return fare is only $8pp with a service going past every 30 minutes. The taxi is approximately a 10 minute ride and the bus is direct and takes 10-15 minutes pending the weather conditions. - We used a combination of taxi and buses and were more than happy with both.

We made use of the Cinema room (which is awesome!), the bar and restaurant (my partner had the Lamb Shanks and said "Best Shank I have ever had, good Southern Meat with no fat!") and also the Pool, Spa, Dry and Wet Sauna (all of which you have amazing views from). My partner also purchase a full body massage which was done in a room overlooking the Shot Over River and surrounding mountains, she told me that the lady who did the massage was great at actually listening to her about aches and pains and offering advice on what may help them.

Overall this was an absolutely amazing trip and very good value for money - We were both a little blue to be leaving after only 4 days. The reason that I have given the total score a 4 and not a 5 is due to the bed in our room. It was two spring mattresses pushed together. They didn't line up which created a hard bump in the middle of the bed which was really uncomfortable if you ended up on it during the night. The mattresses themselves were also a bot hard with not cushioning and I felt that after so much effort had gone into the presentation and atmosphere this was quite a big oversight as the bed is a critical point in any accommodation. Would this prevent me from returning? No, I would however, mention it when booking again.

Room Tip: Make sure you choose a room that is overlooking the Shot Over River.

We stayed 3 nights in a River View Suite. Great view of Shotover River and the mountains. The spa was very relaxing. There is also a cinema and squash court. The staff are very friendly .As it is approx 6km out of town a car would be very handy. I would definately stay again.
