    Delicious lunch on a grey day in Queenstown. Staff in restaurant turn their hands to all the tasks of running a restaurant. Wonderful welcoming friendly staff. Yummy food. I ordered a blt and no trouble to add avocado. Lovely old world atmosphere.

    Old style for a cosy hotel with a very friendly staff. A quiet, simple and comfortable room with a beautiful view on the moutains and clouds and local street art. The pub propose good meals. Beautiful staircase in the foyer. Excellent price/quality ratio.

    A comfy pub, nice service, good food, handy to everything. The updated ensuite a nice bonus. Everything in town was shut for dinner the night we stayed so they all joined us at The Empire! Staff didn't skip a beat.
