Great experience

If you want a quiet and peaceful location and still be conveniently situated between Queenstown and points north, this is the hotel for you. Request a room overlooking the river and you won't be disappointed with the fantastic view. The rooms are extremely comfortable and clean and the service is very accommodating. The hotel has new owners who are interested in maintaining a very high standard. We would definitely consider returning to this hotel on a future trip to Queenstown.

Beautiful location but disappointed with service

Staff very friendly and helpful, beautiful. Location over looking the mountains and lakes. The bedroom looked good but beds are over used as very uncomfortable. Spare sofa bed not in good condition frame and matress over used, not good for anyone with a bad back. Balcony needs cleaning as loads of spider webs. Room has no cooler system so prepare to sweat during the night and have a sleepless night. Two days running late night and morning upto 11am tap and shower water running cold, I phoned reception was told to many visitors at one time using water so this has caused a problem with the boiler system. Reception offered the spar facility both times to shower privately which was nice of them but inconvenient . Overall I think if this hotel can improve on all above then this hotel could be one of the best hotels in the area as it has beautiful character and overlooking mountains and lakes. I could not review the breakfast as I never used this service.

great get away for couple

brilliant place overlooking the shot over river and great place to stay if you want quiet and relaxation as 6 kms from Queenstown. Taxi fare to queenstown reasonable and use the "green taxis" as they have a deal with the hotel. There is a bus service just out side. Staff are amazing. Food: a bit hit and miss

Amazing European styly hotel in Queenstown

While the hotel is at Arthur's Point about 10km from Queenstown the managers have created a great boutique hotel in an elegant European style. The restaurant has a great outlook over the Shotover River and the limited menu while it would be adequate for short stays does not have enough range for longer stays. Otherwise the only other alternatives are to travel to Queenstown.

queenstown experience

we had booked this hotel to bring our granddaughter to visit Queenstown for the first time, and absolutely loved our time here. This hotel is something a little different, and the staff here couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Loved our stay and would recommend to anyone.

Very polite and helpful staff.

Very polite and helpful staff. Brilliant view from the restaurant. Comfortable atmosphere in the bar and restaurant area. We would have liked breakfast included into the offer and possibly the pool use as well because it was reasonable public and not exclusive.
