We thoroughly enjoyed the service we received at the Double Tree. We had complimentary internet so I was able to get some work done while on holiday and we received a note from the house keeper each day upon our return to the hotel. We would definitely stay again.

Spent two nights away from the bright lights in warm comfortable accommodation. Easy access to Queenstown by water taxi and cheaper than a cab. Great surroundings at a great price. Easy travel to Airport and shopping.

Great place to stay just outside Queenstown with awesome views across the lake to the city centre. Easy access on the water taxi or quick trip by car. Food & service was excellent. Car parking is very convenient.

We had two rooms booked and had interconnected rooms which was great for our family. During our stay my daughters cherished toy was accidentally sent to an offsite laundry by the housekeeping staff (during a...

I paid extra for a lake view, and was surprised to find that I looked out onto the back on another building between me and the lake. When I stood in the corner of the lounge and craned my neck to the side, however, I could see a tiny piece of water, which was more the outlet than the lake...

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The village it was a part of had everything you needed within walking distance. Including a number or restaurants, a cafe/grocery shop, and easy access to the lake.There is a office onsite dedicated to booking the different activities on offer around Queenstown. Our room was large with a separate sitting area and...

This hotel is well positioned on the southern lakefront, although out of the central city we made good use of the regular water taxi service that delivers you to the main wharf in city centre. The beds and pillows were a dream to sleep on. When we arrived we were given a hot chocolate cookie which was a quirky treat...
