Nice room kinda old but not, free washing and $2 to dry it. Staff know there menu , food yum big dollars but worth every cent. Great staff, amazing restaurant, nice wine, a must for a meal and warm fire. Not happy that you have to pour your own water up at bar then take it back to ur table....

Stayed here for a week on business. Having stayed at a couple of other places in Queenstown over the past few years, this one is the best. The rooms are basic but perfectly adequate with a comfortable bed and plenty of room. Free wifi was definitely a bonus for us as we were able to continue working at the end...

We were staying in Queenstown for a few nights in May and chose to have dinner on one of the evenings at the Silver Hills restaurant. So glad we did. The open fire was welcoming as was the ambiance and staff. Our meal was excellent and the service friendly and efficient. Will certainly go back on our next visit to...

Stayed 1 night. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Ate in the restaurant. Booked for 6.30pm, finally received calamari at 9.00pm. 2 people ordered the same meal and the meals were completely different. Meals very ordinary.

Hi Silvi, it was disappointing to receive your feedback in the midst of all the very positive reviews we received towards the end of this extremely busy night. It was a record night for us for the number of a la carte diners we had that night. We have never done as many in one night until last Thursday. So...

The Silver Hills Motel was very basic to say the least. The staff were very helpful but that was the best of it. Ate at the restaurant which was way over priced for the quality of the food. I am sure there would be much better accomodtion in Queenstown than the Silver Hills Motel.

At least the cleaners were doing their job. The resturant is overpriced, waiter never came to us. I had to get his attention. Ordered the wallaby which was undercooked. Waiter and owner blamed the chef but no apology or recompense for the $32 dish. Upon checkout 2 nights later I brought it up again and he blamed the new equipment....

We take a lot of pride in our restaurant, so feedback such as yours is of course upsetting to receive...but when it is inaccurate and designed to cause hurt this is outside the ethos that the tripadvisor forum is designed to provide. Whilst I wasn't present at the table the night you dined, your husband paid the account with me...

We (senior couple) stayed here in September 2014. The manager and staff were very friendly and efficient. The room was comfortable, with efficient heating. The meals in the dining room were good value. We would stay here again.
