A nice, modern comfortable hotel - what you would expect of a Hilton.
Located 10 minutes from the middle of town, you definitely need to have a rental car - Good news is they offer free parking.
There is a water taxi into town that leaves directly from the hotel - $10 per person each way.
There is also a free shuttle service run by the hotel that leaves every hour - but you need to book well in advance.
While i was there i discovered a fantastic lake front path that stretches over 10 kms around the lake to the golf course - perfect for a walk or a run!

Perfect location lakeside with beautiful views and a stone's throw from the lake. Set on the quieter side of town but still with action packed Shotover Street only a 5 minute walk away. Central for everything and everything within easy walking distance. Would highly recommend it.
We stayed there for four nights recently. It has free parking and WiFi. Rooms are fairly large and comfortable with a large and clean bathroom. Room has good amenities. We were provided with a microwave on request. Very close to Queenstown. You need your own car though to travel to town which is OK. I would certainly stay there again whenever I can. Very reasonably priced too.
Loved this hotel - I will be staying here each time I visit Queenstown and will be recommending to all of my family and friends. This hotel is suitable to all categories of travellers, the location is absolutely perfect! It is situated on the lake and is also a 1-2 minute walk from the centre of Queenstown. I am a fussy traveller and must say that the facilities in this hotel are great and had no issues with the room whatsoever.
Stayed for 2 nights. Staff were excellent, very pleasant, helpful, couldn't do enough for you. Lovely warm atmosphere in the main entrance and reception area. Beautiful views from the room. What a sight to wake up to!
The hotel was very nice but the room was cold and there was standing water on the terrace. The addition of a second heater on the second day resolved the cold room problem. The heater in the room probably needs to be replaced. The desk clerk tried unsuccessfully to resolve the standing water on the terrace problem.
Can not say enough about the staff. They were extremely helpful, courteous, and knowledgeable.
The room had a spectacular view of Lake Wakatipu and the surrounding mountains.
We had a great lamb meal at the hotel pub.
