We didn't stay here, but we did eat, and to be honest, I was surprised! I'm no expert when it comes to food, but I like to eat and this place was actually good! I ordered chicken schnitzel and had it with vegetables, and the veggies were awesome! Amazing pumpkin, cauliflower, carrots and potatoes - I would rate them as some of the best I've had in ages! Yes, as other people have said, you're in a bar next to the pokies and there is Sky TV on (nice to see cricket rather than football for a change though) but this is a mining town, not a capital city, and the fact you can get a decent meal for a reasonable price when choice is fairly limited is great. I was staying in a camper van a bit out of town so it was nice to eat out for first time on the trip. From what I've heard, Queenstown isn't quite what it used to be, in fact there are actually trees visible these days, and although not a tourist gold mine (pardon the pun), I would definitely recommend hanging around for a day or two.
