Spire Hotel has beautiful rooms with fireplaces and lovely views of the mountains, but what really shines here is the staff. All are friendly and ready to help in every way possible from dinner reservations and tour ideas to rescheduling cancelled helicopter flights. Breakfast was wonderful, as were bar special cocktails and snacks. Heaters for outside dining were great. This... More

Staff at the Spire was the best we've encountered throughout our extensive trip thru NZ. Every request was met with a smile and an enthusiastic "of course". Room amenities are plentiful, spacious and beds are comfortable. Pick your type of sleeping pillow. A very special hotel!

We couldn't have asked for a better start to our honeymoon in Queenstown. After flying for 16+ hours from the US, we arrived at QZN to be greeted by Amanda to get us started on the right foot. Admittedly, we hadn't had much time to research what to do in QZN, so Amanda had laid out a few potential avenues... More

We stayed here in April and the staff and service were exceptional. Friendly, accommodating and so helpful for visiting their city. The Spire is absolutely fabulously decorated, maintained and superbly luxurious.

We could not fault this stunning place and it seems that all the staff that work there (including the house keepers) were happy. We had a driver, Amanda who picked us up from the airport and drove us to different wineries. She was extremely informative and helpful. We will definitely come back without a doubt. Everything was clean, spotless and... More

The Spire is an amazing hotel that has everything you need. We absolutely loved our stay here. It is the extra touches that make this place so fantastic. The complimentary minibar (stocked twice daily) is much appreciated - particularly the Antipodes water. The fresh fruit, the nightly turndown service, the very good a la carte breakfast, the free valet parking... More

We had a short stay in Queenstown and stayed at The Spire, intending to go out for the evening. The room was so beautifully appointed and the menu read so well, we decided to stay in and enjoy it. The food from No. 5 restaurant was exceptional, with the dessert being the best we had ever had in our lives!... More

This hotel is a gem. Only ten rooms and each is remarkable. We stayed in number nine, and were treated to a very spacious room, large flat screen TV, a complete sound system, a fireplace, a balcony and a view that was breathtaking. The water pressure in the shower is the strongest I have ever encountered - amazing. The amenities... More
