Queenstown; the birthplace of bungy jumping and the holy grail of snow sports, this beating heart of New Zealand really has it all, including a rich array of places to stay.
We’ve put together a few of our favourite places to rest your head after an action-packed day in Queenstown, New Zealand.
If you’re after the real deal luxury Queenstown experience, then believe us, there is no shortage of 5-star accommodation. But, our pick of the bunch has to be The Rees Hotel. This ultra-luxe 60-room, 90-apartment hotel sits right on top of Lake Wakatipu and is the perfect place to combine breathtaking lake vistas with fine dining cuisine. It also comes equipped with its own fully stocked wine cellar, a convenient shuttle service and private library for those chilly winter afternoons.
For Low Budget
When you compare it to other parts of NZ, Queenstown can be pricey, but there are always options for different budgetary allowances. For backpackers, check out Jucy Snooze; a hostel that offers up comfortable dorm and private rooms and is close to all the action but without the hefty price tag. It also hosts some of QT’s most breathtaking views of snow-capped mountain. If you’ve had a long day on the slopes, there’s no better way to wind down than in the hostel’s popular restaurant Miss Lucy’s; a relaxed restaurant that marries chilled vibes with a great food and beverage selection.
