QT Queenstown

Hotel in Queenstown

Views over the crystal clear Lake Wakatipu and breathtaking peaks of the Southern Alps set the scene at QT Queenstown. The location was great particularly being able to take the lift down to main road through adjoining hotel. We loved our drinks and platter in the bar. The bar staff were great and it was a beautiful place to relax and have a drink.

Galaxy Boutique Hotel

Hotel in Lake Tekapo

Galaxy Boutique Hotel has accommodations in Lake Tekapo. Among the facilities at this property are room service and a shared lounge, along with free WiFi throughout the property. We stayed at the Galaxy Boutique Hotel for 2x nights. The staff, service and location far exceeded our expectations and we couldn't recommend this accommodation enough to others. The staff catered to our every need, even including a delicious cooked breakfast with no additional charge and were absolutely lovely. The room was extremely comfortable but the most incredible part was the views out over Lake Tekapo. We highly highly recommend this Hotel and will definitely stay again if we are back in Lake Tekapo.
