This hotel was obviously fabulous a few years ago and our first impressions of our room were fantastic. A huge room with exceptional facilities and the most amazing views, however the balcony was crumbling and there was nothing between the edge of it and the large drop to the front. I used the spa but didn't stay long, pool was...

We love this hotel!! It was owned by Distinction but has recently been purchased and the new chain is busy updating and modernising the place. Not bad on one hand but part of the charm of this boutique hotel was its overstuffed chairs and homely feel and I am afraid they may lose that feel. The pool and spa's are...

Dear Mrmaccnz First of all, thank you for staying with us and taking your time to share your experience.

We had the river view room (no spa) and it was huge!! Very spacious, the bed was very comfortable, and the room was very quiet. The view was amazing, overlooking the Shotover River. Free parking is included in the hotel price, but it can be a bit crowded in the hotel carpark. There is also free Wifi, but it was...

Please note that we did not stay for the night - instead we spent a romantic dinner in its intimate restaurant.

Hotel was lovely and had a real romantic feel. Water pressure in shower was perfect and bed was comfy too. I'd return for a romantic getaway for hubby and I but if we brought the kids would probably find somewhere different. Not far at all from the hub of Queenstown and only 2 doors down from the Onsen hot spas.

The hotel boasts 36 spacious boutique rooms, accommodating up to 74 guests, and all rooms have an open plan bedroom and lounge area, ensuite bathroom, and private balcony or patio. Nugget Point Hotel offers a wide range of facilities for our discerning guests. Unwind at The Spa at Nugget Point for a truly luxurious escape, indulge in beauty and massage treatments in our beautiful spa which resembles a modern version of Roman baths whilst taking in the views of the surrounding mountain ranges and Shotover River.

Take advantage of our Home Theatre to enjoy a unique movie experience, with your own private viewing.
