As I've mentioned before in my TA reviews, I have always trusted in T.A. to choose a hotel from the new destination when I'm traveling to. This one was not the excepcion and it was such a delight to find this hotel in this beautiful city.
I booked our 3 night stay through expedia website eventhough own hotel webpage was also available. I got my confirmation and when we arrived to the hotel, everything was in order.
We arrived by car around 4pm and parked our SUV below the hotel. Paces at the parking are limited but the personnel managed very well to allocate all cars having a full booked hotel. There is an elevator from the parking level to the reception level, so no issues with carrying luggage.
Since the check in process you realized that personal touch is involved in everything. They have a very nice desk where you sit a log with the person that is helping you so you do not perform the usual check-in standing.
What I like the most was the hotel room... such a nice and trendy decorations along with a innovative architectural design that elevates your comfort to an high level. Black and white colors that are imperatives in the room are a nice touch with the colorful sky or landscape. Amazing windows that give you such a nice a relax views of the mountain covered by pine trees.
One of the nice touch that we loved was the glass roof of the bathroom. You feel such a different feeling when taking a shower, but do not worry... nobody is able to see you besides birds that are flying above the roof.
Location for us was perfect, 5 min walking distance to the major dowtown-pier-waterfront and 5 minutes walk to the base of the Gondola. I highly recommend take the kiwi tour together with the Gondola ride.. its AMAZING to see a LIFE KIWI ... a lifetime experience.
Eventhough you have to walk a little bit to get famous spots, everythin in Queenstown is practically walking distance, so no issues for that. On the contrary, you have such a nice sleep time because you're in a quite area of the city.
At 5/6pm the offer canapes and wine for all their guests. It is the perfect time to try the famous white NZ wine together with some salmon/cheese little canapes. It is such a nice experience to talk with the people there. I have to give a BIG and SPECIAL CONGRATULATION to Karen, she´s a real kiwi and was one of the most kind persons we interact while in NZ. She gave us such a nice tips that helped us to enjoy even more our stay in Queenstown.
The only downside I could possible find is that you should climb some staris (around 10) to get to the room (at least the one we stayed) but it's not a big issue because they offer you help with your bags.
In general I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this hotel, because for the price you pay and what you get in service, infraestructure and kindness... its totally worth it.
Enjoy life traveLing... and BON VOYAGE!!!
