family trip to the snow

We were very disappointed with the cleanliness of the room. When we arrived it was very icy and snow so the gritting had been done and so from day one the grit and salt got walked into the room and for 7 days the rooms did not get vacuumed. If there had been a vacuum cleaner we would have done it ourselves as we have an 8 month old and so we were not able to let him on the carpet. The only thing that happened regarding servicing the room was fresh towels and and toilet rolls but our room was missed twice and so this was also a problem. the excuses were they were under staffed. We had such high expectations regarding Peppers but was disappointed in the result

Great location in luxurious surroundings

Terrific place to stay with everything you would expect from a luxury hotel. Only downside was we had been advised a couple of days earlier that we would be on level 7 with two rooms with double beds. When we checked in we were given 2 rooms on level 5, one room with 2 x single and no electric blanket on the beds. As a consequence our friends in that room were frozen and one got ill. Phoned reception and they could not fix until next day. The next day all was fine. Coloured an otherwise fantastic experience

Queenstown getaway

Got this hotel at a very good price with a sale on.We stayed in the studio and it was a great size with a closed off bedroom area. I viewed the 1,2 and 3 bed apartments as well and can highly recommend them. Easy 5 min stroll into town via flat footpath. Loved this place and would stay again for sure.

good location, short walk to town centre

staff OK, nice view of snow capped mountains and lake; breakfast menu - the same everyday for the 3 days that I was there; heated floor; bathroom vanity - very small, hardly a space to put stuff; NO toothbrush + toothpaste included - first time I encountered such a hotel missing these basic stuff for guests; WIFI - NOT free, need to pay - really missing basic freebies; no airport transfers available; expensive room compared to other hotels; overall experience- NOT bad, but could be better

Lovely lake views

The staff were friendly, the location was good for us as we had a car but you could easily walk the flat 500m to the centre of town. The view from our 2 bedroom suite was directly over the lake, there was a bit of traffic but the room was still quite quiet despite being right next to the road. The only complaints about the room would be the underfloor heating in the bathroom didn't work, and the fireplace didn't work - there were no instructions on how to light the gas fire so after a few minutes of no fire after turning on the switch, we thought we'd better turn it off. We should have asked at the reception for instructions, but it seemed to much hassle to wait for someone to be free when we had places to be, it would be good if this info was in the book with all the other hotel info. Also, the room service on the 3rd day came early so we said we didn't need the room serviced, yet when we got back in the afternoon someone had come in and put on the dishwasher, but done nothing else, that was a bit weird, especially as they half unpacked it and let everything on the bench. Spa was ok, but in a room marginally bigger than the spa itself, not the nicest spa setting I've ever seen but still nice to soak achy muscles for half an hour.
