Conveniently located on the route between Arrowtown and Queenstown. Great views, lovely staff, excellent restaurant. Rooms are huge and well furnished. The many distractions of QT are about a $20 cab ride away, or there is a bus service from outside. Great if you want some peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of QT.

For the deal we got we were not expecting a place so fancy! We stayed two nights. Beautiful pool and spa area with fantastic views. The room was clean and well presented. Room service was right on time and staff very helpful. We loved the place and hope to come back and see it in the winter time.

The rooms are large and luxurious and the pool area and river view is outstanding. We stayed over new years and the staff were great at providing directions, places to see and eat, etc. The hotel is a short drive from downtown, which is great to get away from the swarms of other tourists. Highly recommend.
