We stayed for 4 nights in a courtyard view room. Didn't mind the fact that we had no view as we were out most days. Could not have wished for a better location - right smack in the middle of Queenstown and opposite Lake Wakatipu and the Real Journeys office for tour departure to Walter Peak and Milford Sound.

The view from our room was beautiful looking at the lake and snow-capped mountains! The hotel location was excellent as it was close to all the wharf restaurants, shops and the Gondola. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful in recommending things to do and restaurants. Their restaurant offered a great breakfast buffet.

This hotel is situated in a terrific part of town just a short distance from the shops and opposite the lake.

Stayed with my family and we had a wonderful experience. The best thing was the location - everything is within easy walking distance of the hotel and with children and older relatives this was very important to us as we did not need the car. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Stay here. Rooms were modern with great views. They have laundry facilities, parking(15.00/day) and the service was impeccable. The guy who helped us with our luggage, unloaded it from the car, brought it into the room, loaded it back into the car when it was time to leave and even placed a bottle of water into the cup holder.

My Fiancé and I stayed at the Crowne Plaza on a recent 2 night stay in Queenstown. As an IHG member we received a free room upgrade (always a pleasant surprise). It was the weekend of the Queenstown Marathon so the hotel and the town were understandably busy. Nevertheless we were met with friendly, knowledgeable staff. The courtyard room was...

Stayed here for 3 nights. We had a room with a balcony on the side of the building but which still gave a reasonable view onto both Lake Wakatipu & part of Queenstown Arm. The hotel is very conveniently positioned for trips on the lake, for walks into town and around Queenstown Arm to the Queenstown Gardens. Meals were OK...

Spent 3-nights here in October and fell in love with Queenstown. The property is situated across the street from the Queenstown wharf and near the downtown restaurants and shops. Our room did not have a harbor view but did have a balcony view of the downtown and surrounding mountains. Room itself was pretty average, but was comfortable just the same....
