“Great all rounder”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2012

Arrived early and the hosts were accommodating in checking in and pleasantly we were upgraded in our room category. We were notified about access to the town and the facilities on site including an inhouse happy hour for guests. Staying here keeps you within walking distance to the town centre for going out in the evening. The downstairs lounge is the nicest part of the hotel which is warm and modern clearly refurbished. Room was spacious as was the bathroom. As we only stayed one night I couldn't experience in room spa pool or inhouse day spa treatments, reason to go back I guess. Felt very welcomed at the happy hour which was a great start to the evening but got a bad recommendation for eating out at an overpriced restaurant with rubbish service at the Fishbone Bar & Grill.
Breakfast was the most disappointing part of the experience as few menu choices and coffee had no flavour or strength also no toast was offered but jams and butter on table! This let down an otherwise good experience.
Hosts were friendly and accommodating at all times but were absent during breakfast. When we checked in we requested a shuttle for the next day to take us to the airport and it arrived bang on time as requested.

It's not exactly a hotel.. only 14 rooms but very well done up and maintained !! Looked after by its owners Peter and Kaylene.. excellent hosts !!
You will be looked after well.. fed well and informed about every activity in great detail. We stayed here for 3 nights and had no complaints at all.

A delightful, spacious hotel, extremely handy (5 mins walk, downhill) to town and well fitted out. Lovely big rooms (ours was a luxury room) help one relax and the decor was stylish without being overwhelming. Loved the big 2-person bath. Staff were unfailingly helpful (although see below) and helped make our 3-day stay truly memorable. The owners even leant us their car for the morning to trip out to Arrowtown. Very accomodating.
Two niggles: we couldn't get anyone interested in supplying non-fat milk, even for breakfast, and for a boutique hotel I would have expected more than the 'basic' Sky TV. But only small things.

Room Tip: Luxury rooms are a little more expensive but worth the extra

What a wonderful feeling walking in to a very warm, comforting room, plenty of room and just so lovely.

Good quality furnishings and relaxing atmosphere.

The drinks and canapés were a nice touch, nice to talk to the owners.

Breakfast was nice, good strong coffee.

Excellent location, nice walk through Queenstown gardens to the waterfront.

Will definitely return!!!!

Room Tip: We had a room on the ground floor,was private but limited view.

We found it overall a pleasant place to stay. The rooms were a good size & very clean. The staff were very friendly & helpful & had some great suggestions for restaurants & the like. Short walk to town. Not enough parking so you had to get lucky. Decent el a carte breakfast. Not exactly a hotel though even with the 'boutique' label & a fair bit over priced for a Bed & breakfast.
