Overview

Designer digs in downtown Queenstown with an award-winning spa and killer mountain views

The Lowdown

Award-winning Sofitel Queenstown is a five-star modernist stay with an epic mountain backdrop and sweeping views of Lake Wakapitu. Steps from New Zealand’s choicest ski slopes, and within easy reach of some superb wineries, this striking, 6-story building is a longstanding local landmark. The 82 rooms are large (441 square feet) with wood-paneled walls, Art Deco-style furniture and super-comfy Sofitel MyBeds. The swank, marble-clad bathrooms are similarly spacious, with spa bathtubs and walk-in rain showers. Prepare for a day on the slopes with a hearty breakfast at Parisian-style Left Bank Café; or treat friends to a private dinner at The Cellar, an intimate space with coffee-colored marble walls and a prodigious wine list. Relax at LeSpa’s hammam steam room or in the oversized cedar wood hot tub; then choose from a host of relaxing treatments, including the signature Manuka Honey Facial. In the evening, curl up with a martini in Nue Lounge, a low-lit bar with a roaring open fire.

In the Area

Queenstown is one of the adventure capitals of the world. There’s world-class skiing and snowboarding from June to October, and tons of adrenaline-pumping activities all year round: bungee jumping, skydiving and white water rafting, to name but a few. There are plenty of wine-tasting opportunities, too. Venture deep into Central Ortago (where the Lord Of The Rings trilogy was filmed) and you’ll find some of the world’s best cool climate wines. Stop for lunch at Northburn a high country sheep station and vineyard; then visit nearby Cromwell, a lakeside gold town originally built in the 1860s.

Great hotel with excellent location,arrived late after a busy day and was very luck to get upgraded to a suite, gorgeous...this was a waste really as I couldnt take advantage of all the lovely goodies they left me as I left early the next morning.

Beautiful luxurious accommodations

As always the SOFITEL QUEENSTOWN continues to excel with superb service and high standards of accommodation. Perfectly located right in the center of town. The staff are always gracious, polite and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and luxurious. I cannot speak more highly of any Queenstown property.

Fabulous Location; Staff and Service

If your looking for a quality hotel with one of the best locations in Queenstown then the Sofitel is perfect. Easy walking distance to almost everywhere in town. The staff were excellent. Very professional and helpful. The executive lounge is a little on the small side but it does offer self-serve drinks which is unusual for most executive lounges. Breakfast was plentiful and there is always the option to order hot food off a menu. The room was comfortable and well maintained. I would be very happy to return and to recommend.
