Hulbert House is a beautifully restored Victorian villa dating back to 1888. Steeped in authentic history, we bring you a distinctive combination of historic elegance and contemporary service. Hulbert House offers a luxury, boutique accommodation experience suitable for all discerning international and domestic travellers.

Situated just a short walk from Queenstown’s vibrant central city, Hulbert House is imbued with a sense of serenity. Our six uniquely designed suites offer stunning views overlooking Lake Wakatipu or the Skyline Hill.

Award winning designer Neil McLachlan has worked his magic with the transformation of the building and grounds.

Your stay at Hulbert House includes a complimentary breakfast, refreshments during the day and pre-dinner drinks and canapes before you stroll into town to one of the many restaurants and bars. Also included is free wi-fi and carparking with direct street access on three sides.

Your sleep experience is enhanced by plush bedding and the lightest of duvets covered with beautiful white damask.

Our team are on hand to offer a complete and personal concierge service. We would be delighted to help you confirm your onward travel arrangements, book one of the many exhilarating activities on offer in the Queenstown area, or secure your own private oasis at an award-winning spa.

As part of our commitment to care for our cherished planet we have a worm farm, we compost our organic waste material and we have a kitchen garden that provides our chefs with fresh and flavoursome food all year round.

Hulbert House offers a unique style of boutique accommodation at a level unmatched in the region.
We look forward to welcoming you to this very special place.

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:   From the moment you walk in the door of this beautifully restored villa, you feel the "sumptiousness" of the beautiful surroundings. Attention to detail in the home is fabulous both in decor, furnishings and the staff service is outstanding! And when you have finished soaking up the atmosphere there are the beautiful canapes, wines and breakfast to come! A fabulous accommodation and so handy to the main centre in such a beautiful part of the world. Thank you wonderful hosts Jade, Jay and Laura.

Review:   I stayed here in August, and had a wonderful experience. The 1880s house has been restored beautifully, its like going back in time, while keeping all the modcons. The design is amazing - its busy while being completely restful and appropriate at the same time. The service is fantastic - local NZers who are proud of being in the house and providing 5 star hotel service. And with Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu as a stunning backdrop, you can't lose. Can't rave enough about it. Get in here before the rest of the world finds out about it.
