spectacular view over the shotover river. You dine in peace, while the jetboats scream over the river far below; you can see them, but you hardly hear them. Beautiful restaurant which serves excellent meals. Rooms are comfortable, well equipped with a view over the river. Nice.

Dear bartdebeer We appreciate you taking the time to write us such a complimentary review. Our restaurant, Birches, is one of our star attractions - with that fantastic river and mountain view (and of course, the food!) we really do believe there's no dining experience quite like it in Queenstown. I'll pass your experience along to our restaurant team who...

Few miles outside Queenstown but great position and facilities with helpful and friendly staff. Good room views for watching Shotover boats. Highly recommended hotel and part of a group with other great hotels across New Zealand. Would go back!

I stayed at Nugget Point for 10 nights in September and I had a very enjoyable time there. The room was really comfortable, there is a really nice restaurant and bar, the staff were all friendly and helpful. The only possible drawback is that it's a little bit out of town so the cab fairs can rack up a little...

The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was polite. The room was not very functional. There is a big desk with no plug available for plugging in one's computer.

An amazing place, with gorgeous views and a fabulous restaurant. The hotel was undergoing some renovations when we stayed, but nothing that gets in the way.

Yes. This hotel is an old 5 star so don't expect the Hilton. BUT it is still a fantastic hotel. Big rooms. Lots of amenities.

Nugget Point Hotel offers a wide range of facilities for our discerning guests. Unwind at The Spa at Nugget Point for a truly luxurious escape, indulge in beauty and massage treatments in our beautiful spa which resembles a modern version of Roman baths whilst taking in the views of the surrounding mountain ranges and Shotover River.

Take advantage of our Home Theatre to enjoy a unique movie experience, with your own private viewing.
