Perfect location lakeside with beautiful views and a stone's throw from the lake. Set on the quieter side of town but still with action packed Shotover Street only a 5 minute walk away. Central for everything and everything within easy walking distance. Would highly recommend it.
Stayed for 2 nights. Staff were excellent, very pleasant, helpful, couldn't do enough for you. Lovely warm atmosphere in the main entrance and reception area. Beautiful views from the room. What a sight to wake up to!
A nice, modern comfortable hotel - what you would expect of a Hilton.
Located 10 minutes from the middle of town, you definitely need to have a rental car - Good news is they offer free parking.
There is a water taxi into town that leaves directly from the hotel - $10 per person each way.
There is also a free shuttle service run by the hotel that leaves every hour - but you need to book well in advance.
While i was there i discovered a fantastic lake front path that stretches over 10 kms around the lake to the golf course - perfect for a walk or a run!

My Husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Rydges Queenstown. The view from our balcony was unbelievable. Standing in the balcony looking outside feels like your staring into a painting. Queenstown is so picturesque it almost looks fake. I cannot fault the Rydges or the staff there, you get amazing value for money. The room has all the amenities you require and is clean and comfortable. This hotel is very ideally located and you can walk to all the restaurants and shops.
Loved this hotel - I will be staying here each time I visit Queenstown and will be recommending to all of my family and friends. This hotel is suitable to all categories of travellers, the location is absolutely perfect! It is situated on the lake and is also a 1-2 minute walk from the centre of Queenstown. I am a fussy traveller and must say that the facilities in this hotel are great and had no issues with the room whatsoever.
As a 'treat night' to myself on my first trip to Queenstown this was the perfect hotel! It was affordable but felt extremely luxurious (and comfortable) at the same time.
Every single staff member I came across were absolutely wonderful and helpful.
This is definitely where I would stay again.
