Hotel Overview


Plumb central Queenstown, two minutes from the high street and all it has to offer.

Rooms at The Spire

Pick from ten very spacious and elegantly appointed suites, each with its own private mountain-view balcony, stone-clad fireplace, and more mod-cons than you could ask for, including a pillow menu. The generous ensuites are bathed in natural light and feature huge bath tubs and separate walk-in showers.

Food and facilities

The ground-floor No. 5 Church Lane bar and restaurant is a top pull at The Spire. The talented kitchen staff has crafted a tantalising menu of Thai fusion cuisine that is best sampled alongside a signature cocktail masterfully mixed behind the bar. Breakfast ranges from the hearty and traditional to the sweet and light.

Activities at The Spire

The Remarkables is an adventure-seeker’s playground and Lake Wakatipu takes top prize for adrenalin-racing speed-boat excursions. Quietly wend through the foothills and pine forests for a low-key escape, or book on a scenic flight and see it all from overhead.
