Overview

Chic mountain lodge-style property with a dramatic lakeside setting and a hot tub garden

The Lowdown

This stunning property on pristine Lake Wakatipu close to Queenstown’s bars and restaurants offers something for stylish urbanites and outdoorsy types alike with stone fireplaces, wood beams and rustic chandeliers. The 142 comfortable rooms and suites have balconies to help you make the most of the dramatic vistas. Inside, they’re decorated in neutral shades with restrained use of gem-inspired hues. The Lombardy Restaurant, which serves international dishes, has bold black and white striped chairs and a central wood-paneled bar; The Library is a quieter area with comfy leather seats where guests can curl up and read. Other highlights include a hot tub garden straight out of the Swiss Alps.

In the Area

Brunswick Street, which runs along Queenstown’s Lake Esplanade, is well placed for Queenstown Beach — a summer hotspot on the edge of crystal clear waters. Go kayaking, take a jetboat ride or book a more leisurely cruise on the TSS Earnslaw, a vintage steam ship that dates back to 1912. It’s a short walk to the resort town’s restaurants and bars, including Barmuda, which has a courtyard fireplace for chilly evenings. It’s when the temperatures drop (June to October), that the party scene really gets going thanks to the four excellent ski resorts within easy reach.

Great location

Some minutes walk fro he town centre and up a bit of a hill with great lake views, a warm and cozy lobby and dinning facilities. Well equipped rooms and all the amenities needed to enjoy the stay. The rain tried to spoil our stay but we managed to survive and enjoyed some sunny time too. Winter season about to start so shops gearing up to sell off last years stocks before the influx of winter sports fans.

Incredible stay

We stayed their for our special anniversary for 8 nights. Got an upgrade to one bed room apartment which was amazing. Staff were super friendly, helpful and attentive.
The bed was great, HSK was done their jobs well. Room was very clean and spotless.
Highly recommend this hotel and we will have to go back there again for sure.
Well done to all staff there and thank you very much for looking after us so well.

Not great value for money but comfortable.

Quite high end hotel, not our style and felt sometimes treated that way. Making you pay for valet parking was an absolute joke, so there's no free parking at all . However the rooms and food were nice. Overall the service was good with concierge, porter, housekeeping and wait staff.

Absolute lack of customer service

Chose this hotel for the view and good reviews.

Standard room faces the ramp. No mention of this fact anywhere on website.
Asked multiple times throughout our stay for an alternative without luck except at a hefty price.
Loyalty status didn't help either. Backpacker hotel below the St Moritz has a better view!?

Please reconsider staying there unless booking a room in the higher category.

Too short a stay

We had a great two night stay - should have been longer. The staff were very pleasant and looked after us very well. We had two excellent meals in the Restaurant which has good views onto the lake. Next time we will hopefully be able to stay longer.
