The hotel is located a wee way out of Queenstown hub but a regular shuttle service which is prompt and affordable made this not an issue. We were lucky enough to have a recently renovated room which had everything you needed. A super comfy bed with lovely crisp linen. The staff made our stay even better - friendly, courteous and...

Friendly, helpful staff. Clean modern rooms. Cheap shuttle service to town. We were impressed. We would certainly book here again when coming to Queenstown. Special accolade to Jason who went out of his way to be of assistance.

it is a perfect location away from city and noise. The views from the hotel room are fantastic. The hotel have got plenty of free parking and free facilities like sauna and spa. very friendly check in staff, restaurant staff and cleaning staff. last but not least, the buffet breakfast is the best I ever had in any other hotels....

On arrival we were staggered to find that the public areas inclusive of reception were under refurbishment. The front desk consisted of a banquet table covered with a black tablecloth. The staff were lethargic and uninterested in providing a welcoming experience. Sadly this property will not be recommended to family and friends.

What a disappointment this is. The room was dirty and we waited two days for it to be released along with the shower fan vent. The only thing going for this place every is the view - fantastic. The toilet seat does not stay up which is difficult, especially for women!! Had a meal tonight for the first time and...

I did read the reviews and was skeptical to stay there but being a gold member with IHG, we thought we would try it. Yes it is undergoing a renovation. Our room was a newly remodeled room and was lovely. The restaurant is also under construction but still comfortable and clean. Even the outside you could tell had some work...

Located about 5 km outside of Queenstown with a nice view over the lake. There is a busstop closeby. A taxi to the towncentre costed us 22 dollars. The rooms are of a good size but in need of an interior update. Good bathroom. The wifi access is limited which is a nuisance. I do not recommend the restaurant. Small...

I frequent a number of Holiday Inns and this is bar far the worst I have encountered. Whilst it is being updated, it is not worth the money for one nights stay, the bedding was skanky, it's not near town, we were told there was a shuttle but the shuttle driver apparently didn't turn up and a taxi was provided...

We only stayed one night and we were very satisfied with our room. It must have been renovated as everything was very modern and updated. We are IHG Platinum members so we were given an upgrade. Thank you management.. The hotel location is great with views of the lake and an easy 5 minute ride by car into the town...
