Sofitel Queenstown Hotel & Spa is a lavish base that fuses French antique elegance and contemporary charm amidst thriving attractions in the heart of Queenstown. While in the resort town, holidaymakers should not miss a visit to the animals at Kiwi and Birdlife Park, a cruise tour aboard TSS Earnslaw Steamship and a stop to the artworks at Toi o Tahuna Fine Art Gallery. Visitors can also catch fish or try paragliding and bungee jumping at the scenic Lake Wakatipu.

Great stay in Queenstown

The Sofitel is the place to stay in Queenstown! This is the second time we have stayed here and it has met every expectation. Very comfortable, clean, perfectly located in the city, and THE BEST staff! In particular Seamus the concierge and Madeleine at the front desk are two of the most helpful people you can have, and are true assets to the hotel. Get to Jervoise Steakhouse for a great steak or book at Gantleys for fine dining with great wine and service. Nue bar in the hotel is a very good place for quiet and tasty cocktails as well. Other hotels might try to boast better views but are usually not in nearly as good a location... And most definitely do not have the same level of service. Cabs are expensive! Besides, it's easy to get a view anyway in Queenstown... Just get outside.

Luxurious

The rooms were very luxurious and had everything you could want. A pillow menu, spa baths, under floor heating, coffee machines... The parking let this hotel down a little bit. The views weren't the best and there are hotels with better locations.

We keep coming back to this hotel!!

This is the 4th time we have stayed here. Service is absolutely the best. Staff are extremely professional, helpful and friendly. Rooms are spacious and clean. Very comfortable bed. Bathroom is spacious and pristine. Location of hotel is fantastic being so close to centre of town. Just walk to wherever you want to go. In house cafe Left Bank is divine. Great coffee and pastries. We will keep coming back.

Arrow Brewing Company in Arrowtown is a great place for their own crafted beer or local wine by the fire with really tasty food and lovely couches to relax back into. We go there every time we are in Queenstown.

Fabulous accommodation. We will

Fabulous accommodation. We will stay here again. Room was good size, and well fitted out. Bathroom was generous size. Attention to detail in all aspects was very high. Professional, polite staff. Portable cot supplied for our daughter and nicely made up. Housekeeping staff even folded her pyjamas when making up the room. If only we could have stayed longer!! See you next year on our annual trip to Queenstown. I will happily recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Currently being renovated, however, we had an excellent Luxury room on the 6th floor at a very good xxxxxxx rate, with breakfast included. As it was out of the ski winter season, the central location downtown was handy.
