A Second Visit - Good location and competitive pricing for Queenstown

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Apr 10, 2019
Stayed at the Central Ridge again for one night having previously stayed for a night in 2013.

Last time I rated the hotel as excellent. My feel now is that it is in the very good category.

The positives are:

- the location is very good, you don't have lake views but I think most rooms have an aspect out and it is it is a relatively easy 10 to 15 minute walk into the centre of town (there is a bit of a slope to negotiate but not too steep, although it would be a challenge for anyone without good mobility);

- the rooms seem to be a good size (this time I had Room M4 which was spacious with a comfortable King Size Bed);

- there is a good sized room safe;

- there is free WiFi which worked well;

- you are given fresh milk for tea and coffee;

- on this occasion I booked through Qantas and paid $258.22 Australian - this was an advance booking rate and didn't include breakfast. Given that Queenstown is an expensive location I thought the price represented very good value for money;

- there is some limited free off-street parking.

Less positives:

- the decor felt a little tired and I was not a fan of the fact that the inside of the double glass doors that look out to the mountain across the town have been covered with some mirrored finish on the inside;

- the furnishings are perhaps a little dated but ok;

- the shower is an over the bath arrangement and so presents a challenge for people with mobility issues (there may be other bathroom configuration, best check).

We stayed for three nights at this quiet, small hotel. Our room was immaculate in every detail. Reception staff were courteous and helpful. Breakfast was available but we preferred to take the short walk through a nearby park to the bustling waterfront. The hotel has a tastefully furnished guest lounge for use by guests at any time for moments of quiet relaxation,,

Good service, Excellent rooms close to the center of Queenstown. The personel is very friendly and willing to help. The rooms are nice, clean and very spacy. After a long trip a good bed is really great and we really enjoyed the bath.
The breakfast is good, but the selection can be more.

Close to the city center, which easily is within walking distance. We walked here for dinner and/or sightseiing/shopping everyday. A little steep climp though, which you have to walk.
Great view from the rooms, where you could see the surroundings.
Very spacious rooms and good service at the reception.

One negative would be the parking, which can be full at times, and then it can be difficult to find free parking elsewhere in the neighbourhood.
