We stayed here in March 2017. We loved Queenstown. First impression of our room was great. Very spacious. The view was looking out into the road so that was a bummer considering the beautiful surroundings! I was shocked we had to pay extra for internet. I honestly thought all nice hotels offered free internet. Even McDonalds offers free internet. Also...

As you can see, it's all about being in the midst of it all. Our room was facing the lake which allowed us to view paragliding, boats and amazing scenery . We were in walking distance to hiking trails, biking trails, waterfront and the the base of the gondola. This is not a big city, it's small but more restaurant...

Great location in Queenstown. Central in the city and really outstanding hotel. The breakfast buffet rocks with included eggs, hot items,cereals, meats and cheeses, and lots of bread and options. The only drawback was the expensive parking and loud all night partying noise from the bar across the court yard. highly recommend and would stay here again, walking distance to...

Kudos to the staff here. From the first day we felt welcomed here on our first visit to New Zealand. The hotel is immaculate, rooms have a nice touch, and the service is top notch. We had food delivered and before I could ask for silverware the front staff was asking for plates and utensils from the dining staff. We...

I have been to Queenstown several times and stayed at other very nice hotels. Some more expensive than this and some not. This hotel was clean and nice. However, I should NOT have let a travel agent book the room. I paid almost double the price that the price on their website and breakfast was not included. Online and on...

Hotel was really nice, staff was very nice friendly, and accommodated our late flight out the next day. The manager on duty went above and beyond-i forgot her name!

We were disappointed in the Sofitel, especially given we stayed there the most nights during our trip to South Island. It's a beautiful property and conveniently located right off main streets downtown but didn't feel special. Service was good but not overly attentive.
