Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were quiet and private. The staff are friendly and so helpful. Lovely bar and restaurant staff. The food is amazing at the restaurant. We could not get enough!! Special thanks to Danielle at reception who went over and above assisting me with my husband as he was in a wheelchair. My hubby able to walk small distances but downside is place not wheelchair friendly.

Review:   After all my years staying in hotels for both business and pleasure, I have never in my life encountered staff as rude as the ones at Oaks Queenstown. When checking in, the lady at reception offered me late check out, when I called to confirm the night before, I was yelled at and told NO you are not having it and was spoken to like a child rather than a paying customer. Further to this upon check out, they did not debit the correct amount for the stay when i checked in and the staff were running around unsure of what the charge was, it appears they did not charge me enough credit card surcharge, again this is the hotels issue and I told them to work it out, they again spoke to me like a child advising YOU WILL PAY THE FULL AMOUNT FOR YOUR STAY, NO NEGOTIATION with extreme attitude and tone!! I did in fact pay the full amount, it is not my issue they undercharged a credit card surcharge. The staff in general were extremely rude and arrogant, this will ensure I never come back to this hotel. To add, the level of servicing at the hotel is horrendous, we checked in on the Friday and noticed in the hallways rubbish from suitcases and a water bottle, this was not picked up by the time we checked out on the Monday!! Also the rooms were filthy, our dining table had over an inch of dust on it. There are far more beautiful places to stay at in Queenstown where you will actually be treated like a paying customer rather than purely be a hassle for the staff. Stay away
