Immaculate hotel right on Lake Wakatipu; excellent breakfast; literally about 1,000 feet from the Queenstown wharf and dining district. There is a small fitness center: two treadmills, one stationary bicycle, one elliptical trainer.

We stayed 2 nights at this location and the best thing about this hotel is it's location. There are street metered parking available surrounding the hotel as well as overnight parking at Wilson Parking which is located around the corner. It is within walking distance to the main city center. Because we were on our honeymoon, the hotel staff actually...

Stayed 3 nights, good central location. Comfy beds, nice linen. Breakfast range was huge and good quality. We were however ground floor street side and not far from reception so there were buses coming and going for tours from very early in the morning, room 157 I think. Whilst I tried to move rooms on the first night this wasn't...

Stayed for 1 night after completing the Otago Central Rail Trail with my husband and 11 year old daughter. Very busy check-in and lobby due to coinciding with large number of tour bus arrivees, but staff were friendly, polite and efficient despite the hordes - which says a lot and makes a big difference. Room was clean and nice; a...

The Novotel was in a perfect location with direct access to Lake Wakatipu and the centre of Queenstown. The staff were helpful and the suites were clean and well serviced every day. We enjoyed our stay and will return.

Stayed here a couple of times. Each time not been disappointed. Rooms are spacious, clean and bed extremely comfy. Nice place to treat yourself on a weekend away. Didn't ever partake in breakfast r dinner, but the menus look appetising and reasonable in price. The bar was well stocked, and staff friendly and extremely helpful when asking for recommendations on...

Love the location of this, as it is by the lakeside but also a bit tucked away fro the hustle and bustle of the centre of town while still being a few minutes walk away. The grounds are very pretty, the staff are great and breakfast was good. You can also get fresh milk delivered to your room!!

We spent 3 nights here and loved its location: central yet quiet. The room was well organized and comfortable, including a mini-fridge and hot water pot. It was very snug for two people with big luggage but we gained closet space after asking to have the ironing board removed! Good breakfast with excellent croissants. Lovely courtyard with well manicured roses....

Situated at of the best locations in Queenstown and you will pay accordingly. Can be noisy at night particularly for the rooms facing the lake as the park is a popular place at all hours. Staff are very helpful. Valet parking is efficient and better value at $20/day (come and go as often as you please) than the self park...

The room was a little small as we were a family of 4 but the location was amazing. Staff were really friendly, especially at breakfast. The food at breakfast was great, lots of variety and a juicer for making fresh juice.
