“Wow, the best place to stay in Queenstown”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

This hotel was amazing, the view is the best view one can imagine. The hotel rooms were very large as were the bathrooms, and each room comes with a balcony that is somewhat private. Spend the extra dollars to get a river view room - you will not regret it. the pool and sauna is lovely and exclusive if you book a slot on arrival, and the spa treatments were nice. breakfast is somewhat limited, but the dinner restaurant was superb. I would go back there in a heartbeat!
The room was very quite, never heard our neighbours, it was very clean and the bed was so comfy! The hotel is not in th city centre, it's a 5 minute drive, but there is plenty of parking at the hotel and in the city centre so it's totally worth it!

Room Tip: Get a river view room!

Food = inedible
Service = a huge amount to be desired for
Environment = great views, dated decor
Ambience = What is this here?

A group of friends and I went here for an evening, the food itself was inedible, the service incredibly bad, please do not subect yourself to dining here. I had heard bad things, but decided that nothing could be as bad as what I was being told, oh how wrong I was. I am sure I could say something good about this place, but I am just not too sure I've got the time to sit and think about it.

I have to rate this hotel highly because we got upgraded up to a room with a superior view of the Shotover River, the scenery was breathtaking. If we had not been upgraded then I can safely say that it would have been a very different story.

So for the price we paid it was very good but it's all in the details.

This Hotel is about 7km from Queenstown,
I had a Garden Studio very large room with a large couch that one could lay on and watch TV (small old model TV) or just relax. A very comfortable Queen Size bed. The bath room had only a shower no bath, but they do have an indoor swimming pool.
It was nice to be able to set out side and enjoy the evening sun., as I was on the ground floor and have a small court yard, with 2 out door chairs and small round marble table
They also have free wifi , and a small desk so you can do those all important e mail.
You will get no traffic noise as the place is set back from the road.
If you don’t want to eat in-house you can walk up the road to Gantleys Restaurant .
You are walking on the main road with no footpaths but you can walk on the grass verge.
The Staff were all very helpful.

Room Tip: You need a car if you are staying here, It is on the bus route but if you are relaying on public tra...

We got this one off a wotif.com deal and it was great. The service was excellent and the rooms spacious and clean. The bous was the heated floor in the well appointed bathroom. Nice touch to have a free bottle of Sav when we arrived though it could just as easliy have been a local wine rather than a Malborough one. We could have done with some extra pillows but the bed was comfortable and the sheets high quality. Its not too far out of town if you have a rental car so we didnt mind the short drive. The garden rooms are the cheapest but they are still warm and comfortable. We had a nice deep bath in ours. The decor seems to be a mixture of syles and it has a slightly opulent feel with all the huge paintings. For the price it is good value.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a bath if you are going garden.

We had a lovely stay at Nugget point a couple of weeks ago ( New Years ). The hotel has a beutiful view of the shotover river and the rooms were well appointed. I enjoyed the location, being only 10 minutes drive out of Queenstown you got leave behind all the noise. The staff were excellent and attentive to all our needs. Take advantage of the Onsen pools that's only a 5 minute walk from the hotel, this is one of Queenstown's top rated attractions, and the shotover jet is only 5 minutes away aswell. We were a family of 4 with 2 children aged 5 and 12. The hotel gave us a free upgrade to a suite to accomodate us better. There is free wifi throughout the hotel, which is unusual for NZ.This was the best hotel we stayed on our 15 day trip throughout NZ.

Room Tip: Get a ground floor room that faces the river. The view is amazing

Our room at this hotel was lovely and it was a blissfully peaceful place in a bustling town, but we had a couple of concerns.

Firstly, the hotel is approximately 10 km out of town ($30 NZ for taxi each way, or $7/person each way in a bus that went once an hour the day we arrived) so it isn't overly convenient.

Secondly, there is no allocated car parking or even guide line markings, so if you were late back of an evening it was difficult to find a park amongst the haphazardly parked vehicles.
