We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and we loved it! The room was spacious and comfortable and the location was very convenient, only 5 minute walk to town centre. The staff were also friendly and welcoming. The only thing we didn't like was the noisy upstairs neighbours.. but what can you do?..

The room was clean, the location was very convenient, and the owner was very nice and friendly. I was doing a lot of traveling and he allowed me to keep my bags at the hotel. It was about a five minute walk to the town and the park.

This was just the perfect place for our stay in Queenstown. The hotel was a few minutes walk away from the town centre and was perfectly located for everything yet still very peaceful. The attention to detail in the hotel itself was great, from all the origami folding of the towels to the lovely lilies. Our room was very spacious...

Spent 3 nights. Just a couple of minutes from downtown. Owner very friendly and accommodating. Large room. Clean, comfortable. All the amenities you need. Good breakfast (by New Zealand standards, which are quite different from North American). Would definitely recommend.

The service is good and the staff friendly. The location is fantástic, just a five minutes walk from the city attractions. The problem is, when in holiday, a hotel is meant to rest, and the Ridge fails in this account, it does not have a lobby to sit to read or do nothing, the mattress was very soft and the...

My wife and I stayed here initially for one night but found the location, spaciousness of the room and generosity of our host too good to leave so we booked another night.

Central Ridge Boutique Hotel (“Central Ridge”) is perfectly positioned right in the heart of Queenstown, and it is a stone throw away from dozens of restaurants, outdoor cafes, and recreational activities that occupy the breezy waterfront and easy-going pedestrian malls. Central Ridge offers well-appointed, cozy and spacious rooms with a comfortable bed and continental breakfast. The team have plenty of local knowledge to guide and advice to you the best restaurants in town, fun filled outdoor activities. The attractions nearer to Central Ridge Boutique Hotel includes:- - Pedestrian mall at Queenstown centre (walking distance 2-3minutes); - Restaurants and outdoor cafe along side waterfront at Lake Wakatipu (walking distance 4-5 minutes); - Queenstown Garden (walking distance 2-3 minutes); - Steamer Whaft for the cruise “Lady of the Lake” to Walter Peak. They said no trip to Queenstown is complete without a cruise to Walter Peak High Country Farm (walking distance 4-5 minutes to Steamer Whaft); - Skyline Gondola (walking distance 10 minutes); - Coronet Peak ski area (driving 20 minutes) - Remarkable ski area (driving 40 minutes) - Vineyard tour activities (driving about 20 minutes) Our boutique hotel offers a very unique experience.
