Best Queenstown hotel hands down! My little family have stayed all over Queenstown and this will be our favourite hotel moving forward. Perfect location for playground access/cafes/restaurants/bars/activities all at the doorstep. The staff are an asset to the hotel and always helpful and friendly. Slightly small rooms but a good trade off
