Expect delicious dishes that celebrate the region’s finest produce at the restaurant, and you’ll be hard pressed to find a better wine selection than here - try everything from Central Otago’s finest reds to Bordeaux’s best offerings at the hotel’s very own wine lounge.


If you’re not cycling around on one of the hotel’s mountain bike fleet or taking off from the private jetty, borrow a book from the library’s rare book collection, and revitalise your senses with a hot stone body wrap in your room, before stargazing at the hotel’s observatory.

The bustling centre of Queenstown, with its numerous shops and restaurants, can be easily reached via a short five-minute journey on the hotel's complimentary shuttle, or a scenic lakeside stroll.
