This is now a Holiday Inn. The room was extremely old fashioned and absolutely nothing like the modern state of the art rooms in all of their pictures. Very misleading. I paid good money for an alleged four star hotel and got a dreadful room that was very over priced. It was an old motel room, poor knackered bed with...

We booked through tripadvisor and were thrilled to find a hotel with a lake view. We paid for a superior lake-view king bed room. The room itself was a good size, clean with a view of Lake Wakatipu, hence the two stars. Unfortunately, that is where it ends. Some things that were important to us were certainly not as advertised....

Newly renamed the Holiday Inn - our room had a lake view and had just been renovated - good value for money. Slightly out of town though. parking on site was a plus. Will be better when final renovations are complete.

We had booked this accomdation quite a while ago and upon arrival we found out that the hotel was taken over by Holiday Inn. It would have been nice if a notification would have been send. We were lucky that find the hotel. Best thing of the hotel is the view over the lake. We enjoyed this a lot. rooms...

Stayed here for 2 nights before going back to our hometown. This resort is located on a hill and quiet. Enjoyed the stunning views of Lake Wakatipu from our Lakeview room. Near to centre of Queenstown - about 5km and near to Queenstown International Airport too. Free parking. No lift in this resort so have to carry your own luggage...

We arrived on rebranding day and were surprised to see all of the signage had changed over to a Holiday Inn but it didn't complicated our booking at all. The staff were all very friendly, in good spirits and polite. Our room was obviously recently renovated and very comfortable. We made use of the shuttle into town and the driver...

Travelling with friends, we booked two ' superior lakeview ' rooms. On arrival we found the complex was being renovated. Our friends received a renovated room - we didn't. Our heater didn't work and when we asked for another portable heater there wasn't one available. There was no air con in our room. While the view was great - but...

Staff are very friendly at the Goldridge Resort. Great meals are offered in the hotels dining room. Full breakfast and a nice dinner and bar menu. Dining room staff very helpful and professional. Rooms OK, try to avoid rooms by the tennis court, ex 302.

We booked this hotel well in advance and when we got there we checked in and were told to take our bags up a steep hill to the room. As we left the reception area we heard drilling and this just got louder. The rooms next to ours were being renovated and they had not bothered to tell us. We...

I stayed in a double superior room with my kids. We were very surprised by how amazing the room looked. The wardrobe even had a light in it when you open it and the carpet was new. The beds were very comfortable and the only problem is the shower and the lack of pressure. I would definitely have liked to...

Dear Goldridge Guest, Thank you for taking the time to comment on our recently refurbished superior rooms. It's good to see you enjoyed the room and you found the beds comfortable. Your comments in relation to the shower pressure and a balcony set up have been noted. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Best Regards, Adele Hall
