My wife and I had just returned from walking the Milford Track, and we decided to book the Rydges in Queenstown to finish off our South Island experience. After staying at the Rydges in Auckland, we had high expectations. To say we were disappointed when we arrived would be an understatement. After exiting the elevator, we walked down the hall...

I have never been compelled to leave a review on a hotel until now, such is our disappointment. We have traveled a lot and paid similar prices to this hotel elsewhere in NZ and overseas, and frankly, we've had miles better hotels for a lot less. The room is dated, the lake view that was promised I'd mostly of the...

Nice hotel, but not "world class". Probably one of the better places in Queenstown however. We had a large room with lots of luggage space. Our room faced the lake, which I would recommend, and had a great view of the lake and mountains. The bathroom was quite functional, but nothing special. Main drawback was that the hotel is a...

Whilst this is clearly one of the more impressive looking hotels, it leaves quite a bit of room for Improvement. The hotel is a large building set on the lakefront a short walk from Queenstown centre. It's a pleasant walk along the lake, and with (limited) parking available onsite or free on the road outside it's worth leaving the car...

We stayed at the Rydges Lakeland for 4 nights. The lobby area is smart and well presented, but the rest of the hotel though looks dated and worn. It looks like it is undergoing a refurbishment or soon will be. If this is the case, it will be spectacular. The views across the lake are great, and it is about...

The best part of this hotel was by far the view of the lake. Located right across the street from the lake, we would sit on our small little balcony every chance we had, just mesmerized by the beautiful scenery that surrounded us. The room itself was a bit tight but comfortable, containing two double beds, with a desk and...

Two of us stayed here in early April. The staff were very helpful, especially when it came to taking care of a car park for our rental car situation. (very limited parking on site despite the hotel having one of the larger car parks in Queentsown). Our room was on the ground floor with a small balcony and a nice...

Though the staff were super friendly and helpful, the hotel itself is dated. My room was on the underground floor and felt a bit like a dungeon and I had no view but the side of the neighbouring hotel.. The bathroom could have been a lot cleaner. I ordered room service and though it was a nice enough meal I...

Stayed here recently for a conference and had a lovely time Although the room was a bit dated it was a reasonable size and we had a good stay overall. The beds & pillows were very comfortable however the bathroom was small & in need of some attention. We were on the ground floor so didn't have much of a...

Being only 5 minutes walk from Steamers Wharf and right on the lakefront the location of this hotel is hard to beat. A number of other reviews have made reference to the rooms being somewhat dated and it is true they are in need of refurbishment. Nevertheless we were generally happy with our smallish room on the 3rd floor and...
