“Not bad for a short budget stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

This hotel looks very grand from the outside and indeed the reception area and the bar are really nice. The pool/spa are is small but very clean. Our room was clean although quite cramped as it was a family room with 2 sets of bunks. I can't fault the service. I think had I been traveling solo or in a couple I would have chosen a more suitable room budget wise, but it served our purpose as 'backpackers' so to speak and I wouldn't be deterred from staying there again under different circumstances.

Room Tip: Don't go for the budget rooms

Like all Rydges, it goes without saying, it was a beautiful & comfortable stay. Breakfast was also very good and the hotel ground very properly kept. It was a pleasant stay & the service staff was very good too.

Comfortable beds within a spacious room were welcoming, and the decor was very pleasant. Unfortunately the bathroom was in need of some upgrading and the balcony barely fitted two chairs and a table - it felt quite claustrophobic. The restaurant was booked for a private function and we felt that should have been advised on their website, as we had booked this Hotel to have a special family night for dinner. We ended up in the Fireside Bar to try and get a meal as the Hotel had advertised the normal menu would apply. No seats, overcrowded and very noisy. We ended up sitting outside in their courtyard to eat a very quick meal before leaving. Not what we had hoped for in Queenstown. Views were fabulous though and the staff pleasant.

While reasonably comfortable this hotel is looking a little tired, especially in the public areas. On the upside, wireless Internet was free, but the bathroom is especially tired and basic (no bath), which didn't matter so much to me as I was in Queenstown working, but if you were there on a ski holiday, a bath would be nice at the end of the day. My stay was out of ski season so pricing and value were fairly good.

Room Tip: If you don't eat in the hotel, you may need to drive rather than walk into town.

Scenery spectacular but pity the service does not match. Continually had issues that spoilt the holiday. A general vcouldnt care less attitude and I felt if we went to the front desk we were intruding. No follow through of issues, staff obviously not happy working there and it showed. Spoilt a good holiday staying here, never again

Room Tip: STay at Crown Plaza is my tip

Great location, however given the other offerings for the same price in Queenstown this hotel would have to improve substantially for me to 'want' to come back for another stay. The other hotels I have stayed at in Queenstown I found to be much better value for money.

I usually try to avoid big chain hotels when on holiday because I've had to stay in too many such places for work purposes. However I really liked this place. The room we had was clean, fresh and nicely decorated, with an excellent lake view. The one room service meal I had was excellent, and the spa pool was lovely out under the stars. Great value for money throughout a Wotif booking too.
