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:   Location is 10 mins walk from city centre beautiful view and welcoming staff. Down side is we left in morning came back at 2:15 pm for a rest room not serviced. There is no Air condition and was a bit humid a night so not the best sleep either. In addition, they only provide one very small shampoo for me and my husband!! Furniture is fine but needs an upgrade as looks old. Swimming pool was so dirty and we couldn’t swim in it, no one was there either. The water was cold and was not heated. We expected more for what paid for. If I go to Queenstown I will be trying another hotel for sure.

Review:   Location is fantastic, rooms are well looked after. However there is no air conditioning, so it is stuffy during the summer. Main issue is the difficultly to find parking, provided parking is limited and always full and street parking is similar, requires time to find a place to park.

Review:   Hotel is well located right across the road from the water and about a 5-10 minute walk to town where there are numerous restaurants and shops. Rooms are large and most have balconies facing the water. Ours could have used some updating as the carpet was stained and needed replacing. Nice restaurant and bar on the top floor with beautiful scenic views.

Review:   Rooms are nice and clean. View of the lake and balcony are nice. Rooms are a little small but with the location being so prime you will.not spend much time in the rooms anyways! They need to clean their pool as it was pretty gross when we were there and you can see where there used to be a hot tub. Too bad there is no longer one

Review:   Great location, just a short walk from all the excitement of town.. Just far enough away to avoid the noise, views etc. Nice rooms. Buffet breakfast is beautiful spread, nothing exceptionally delicious but I didn't give it a good enough effort. Great place. Would go again if in the area
