Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It might be one of the most difficult addresses to locate but once we have found it saying good bye was not easy. We were suitably impressed with our spacious suite (VIII) and a vast roof terrace overlooking the action in the street flooded with happy revelers. Its central location put us within 5 minutes' walk to any eatery and retail outlet in town. Yet despite the buzz in the street two storeys below we have enjoyed a most comfortable week of peace and quiet thanks to the excellent sound proofing and high quality bedding. All staff we have been in contact were friendly and professional without being obtrusive which is a sign of good training. This hotel will certainly remain in the top five of our list worldwide.

The first thing that impressed me when I walked into my Spire suite, was its size. These days, many hotels use the term “suite” for rooms that contain a bed and a chair, but not so with Spire. The entry way leads to a closet and storage area for suitcases. The roomy bathroom has two sinks, a shower, and a tub. There were plenty of lights. I enjoyed that one set of lights was near the floor, which was perfect for night. Unlike a lot of hotel bathrooms, the location and number of hooks and towel racks was perfect.

The main area of the suite has a king size bed and a living room area with a couch, fireplace, speaker system, and mini-bar. The balcony was large and had a good sized table and chairs. The block out curtains ensured a good night’s sleep. Breakfast, served at a nearby sister property, was delicious. The staff were pleasant, courteous, and quite helpful.

Spire is located down an alley, which makes it a quiet location in bustling Queenstown. It is a bit tricky to locate, as you can’t drive to the front door. There is no spire on the hotel!

Love this place. Superb service all round. Love the reception crew and the staff at The Grill. Nothing is ever an issue. The room (although starting to show its 10 + years age a wee bit) is meticulously presented. Loved the garden view room too. Very restful outlook and nice to hear the church bells on Sunday :). This place is highly recommended - which is why we keep going back :)
See you in July!

This hotel was highly recommended- and so even though it was pricey with a “deal” on booking.com, I booked it. The room was well-appointed, spacious and comfortable. The bed was mediocre. They source New Zealand products for the bath, which I loved(I’ve ordered some for home). The mini bar is stocked with chips, whitacres chocolate bars and beverages. Everything is complimentary but the alcohol. The alcohol looked to be all New Zealand as well. There is reportedly a turndown service, but I didn’t see it. You are welcomed with a couple pieces of fudge each evening. The hotel staff reached out well before my trip offering to book tours, dinner and the like. My flight was one hour late arriving, so I missed my dinner reservation which they moved to the bar for me. Upon arrival, I was escorted to my room and given a quick tour of the room. Afterwards, and much to my surprise, I was walked to the bar. Now for the downside. The Laneway Suite (#4) that I was in is over an alleyway and very near to a popular bar. Both nights it was nearly 3am before the noise died down enough to allow sleep. Breakfast is included but inconvenient as you must walk to neighboring hotel for it. Front desk staff are also shared between the Eichardt private hotel and the Spire. Since my return, I’ve read many other reviews citing noise from the bar as a problem. The pat response seems to be”you should have told us- we have a good relationship with the bar owner and could have addressed the noise”. It seems like this is a planning issue, perhaps something could be worked out with the bar where there is not outdoor seating or congregating after 10 or 11 pm so as to allow hotel guests to rest?

Everything about our stay at The Spire was first rate. From the friendly welcome from Luz at reception, to the stunning room - big on comfort and luxury, but super cozy at the same time. The mini bar was generous and delicious, while the view through the magical autumn leaves to the Lake was hard to leave. A big beautiful bath complete with delicious bath salts made the night super relaxing, and the bed was big and comfortable, with soft sheets and plenty of pillows. Breakfast was served with a smile by Luke at the Grille and we had the best seat in the house looking out at that mesmerising view. Now that we’ve experienced the Spire, there’s no doubt about where we’ll be staying next time we’re in Queenstown.

My daughter and I were lucky to get to Queenstown between lockdowns in Melbourne and had an extended stay at the Spire In July 2021. We were there more or less for 17 nights (originally 5!). This really felt like a home away from home. Our room was huge and with the most comfortable bed and we loved the Eames leather chair to relax on (so much so we bought one when we got home to remind us of our stay!). You couldn't ask for a better location in Queenstown we walked everywhere and the beautiful lake was a block away. We loved the Moulton Brown amenities and the snacks and drinks that were complimentary and replenished every day. The staff were absolutely wonderful and would go out of their way to help us. A special thank you to Thays! We had wonderful breakfasts at the sister hotel Eichardt's whilst the as the adjacent restaurant No 5 Church Lane was closed. However we were lucky to dine there on our last night and the food was superb, best we had in town! You can't go wrong staying at this gorgeous boutique hotel; we can't wait to get back!

Lovely break at The Spire. Direct booking process was easy and ensured the hotel got our full $NZ payment. Consistently happy staff, nothing was any trouble.
Ideal location for exploring Queenstown and surrounds. No5 Restaurant was added bonus, not a standard hotel restaurant at all ... it is a hidden gem (known by locals) with extraordinary food and excellent cocktails.

I truly thought I had written a review for this hotel - clearly I didnt and as I am about to revisit the place again next week I think its timely to do one. We LOVED our time here. Three nights in the Deluxe Suite. Cosy and warm, quiet, massively comfortable bed and some great treats as well. Breakfast was served at the restaurant next door and I have to say that was brilliant on each occasion. The staff in both places was sensational and they certainly made us feel welcome. Great location too. Dont stay anywhere else in Queenstown!

My wife and I stayed in the Spire Suite and it was just perfect. The staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. The Suite is awesome. In room dining was very surprising, not your normal fare, and can highly recommend after a long day out

We stayed for one night in late June in a deluxe suite facing the lake. Possibly the partial lake and mountain views advertised are a little optimistic. The room was well appointed, very clean, and very spacious. We would have preferred a little more lighting (which was very atmospheric!), and some of the furnishings are getting rather tired. Service was excellent from an early checkin, through to assistance at night when we needed a 24 hour pharmacy. The room was overlooking a small lane towards the lake. Noise in the night was an issue for us, with a number of bars and nightclubs in close proximity. We are sure however, that if we had been staying more than one night and let the hotel know, they would have moved us. We think that Spire suites would be much quieter. Breakfast at the sister hotel was very good, although no fruit.

The Hotel DOES have a pickup service. However, you will have to arrange that with the hotel. By the way, the Spire is a great place to stay and the staff is fantastic.

Check in was 2 or 3 but the staff were marvelous and took our car keys, emptied the car, bought our bags in and parked the car for us while we were out having lunch. Very accommodating
