Probably the best Hilton I have ever stayed in (and I've tried a lot of them).
Great very new standard rooms with sunken lounge and fireplace (with a bathroom to rival the best of Las Vegas). Spotlessly clean in the rooms and the public areas. Housekeeping was 1st class and very discreet. Front desk staff were charming. Hotel is very large, tastefully decorated and seemingly very well managed. Nice indoor pool and spa. Lovely lake views. Hotel is not in Queenstown but across the lake, however access to Queenstown is easy by car (loads of parking in the centre). The hotel offers a shuttle bus (free) and lake water taxi. Hotel offers free underground parking (2 mins walk) or valet for a fee. Great base for touring the surrounding area with easy access by car. If using TomTom GPS the hotel location is Peninsula Road, Frankton (not Queenstown).
Arrived a day early (following my booking error at another hotel) and we were accomodated without fuss using the same excellent rate I had booked months earlier.
Continental breakfast buffet was excellent value considering the choice, although the full works with hot selections was a bit pricey. There is also a good coffee shop on site that offers coffee, juice, toast and coissant for a very reasonable alternative.
Ate at the on-site Noodle Restaurant one night and this was great tasty food and very good value (around US15 a head). Room service food was OK, but the service was very prompt.
