“Convenient accomodation”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Clean and comfortable, with friendly efficient staff. The room was heated, the bed comfortable, and the view from the dining room was lovely as I ate dinner. Good value for money.(I was in an economy room with no lake view, but as I was only there for a bed, this was not important)
Excellent breakfast.

I had wanted a rest for the night, and did not need a view.....but I did not get all the rest that I needed, because of others nearby talking for some time outside my room, or so it seemed.
The room was clean as was bathroom. Breakfast was very functional, but that was what I paid for. Yet for the equivalent price I could have had a wonderful breakfast down town or in Arrowtown.

Had a deal that included superior lake view room and full continental breakfast. The room was clean and heated before we arrived. The beds were very comfortable and the view was amazing. The service was fantastic. Dinner was not so great - had a 3 course meal - good size but a bit dry (I recommend going into town), however breakfast was delicious. It's not really unlimited wifi as you have to keep going to the reception to get a 250mb top up card-which does not last long at all. The whole place was lovely and comfortable - had a good size restaurant, bar and lounge, as well as many other amenities. Overall, I found it to be very reasonably priced. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Superior Lake View. Twin beds were like queen bed size.

Thank you Belinda for your warm comments. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and the Resort’s facilities. We do offer unlimited free WIFI for all guests who stay in our Superior Lakeview rooms, however the only way we can currently offer this service is by providing pin cards. We hope we can look after you the next time you are in Queenstown. Best Regards, Penny Clark

Really enjoyed my stay at Goldridge! The staff were excellent (especially Monika), the room was very comfortable (double beds for each of us in a twin room), stunning view of Lake Wakatipu, a 5 min drive away from central Queenstown (or a leisurely bike ride by the lake), all at a great rate! It's certainly not the cheapest place in the area but I felt, overall, my stay was well worth my money!

Thank you Gillian for your warm comments. We try to aspire to be great value for money! A majority of our superior rooms now have Queen beds, they arrived last week, so extra value for our guests. We have also just finished putting new heaters in all our superior room bathrooms .We hope we can look after you the next time you visit Queenstown. Best Regards, Penny Clark

Chose Goldridge due to its proximity to the airport. Small dated rooms, but clean and warm. Struggled with our heavy suitcases as the rooms were all up hill with stairs. The shuttlebus service and driver were excellent and his suggestions for dinner in Queenstown were perfect. Breakfast in the restaurant was pricey for a basic breakfast, but we did enjoy the view.

We stayed there only one night in May, but found the room comfortable and warm. The view of the lake and the Remarkables from the room (and very small balcony) was spectacular. I'm not sure I would call this place a resort, but we would definitely stay there again.

Starting with a front desk person with an attitude and one the next morning who knew better than to ask if we had a nice stay, this would have been a decent place if the alternative were sleeping on the street. Most of my reviews have been positive. This one can't be. Queenstown is beautiful, just stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: Rooms off this property are better!

Dear Goldridge Guest, It is very disappointing to hear of your experience at our front desk on your recent stay. We aim to make everyone’s stay at the Goldridge Resort an enjoyable experience, but it appears that we have failed on this occasion. We appreciate you took the time to tell us about this, which will give us a chance to redeem ourselves with future guests. Kind Regards, Penny Clark
