Whistler, The Chancellor - Queenstown
Ranked #28 of 58 Hotels in Queenstown
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 April 2012

We stayed here last August for 7 nights. Overall our experience was very good. Jan and Wayne are very friendly and helpful and provided us with many good recommendations for dining and activities. The room location was very good being a short walking distance to the main road in Queenstown. The room contained basic items which met our needs for the week. Our only criticisms would be the couch is not the most comfortable to sit on as it seemed to slope and the mattress wasn't the most comfortable either. However, we would likely return as the value was good, the hosts very friendly and the location was convenient.

My wife and I stayed at The Whistler for 4 nights in March-April 2012. It's location is great, only a 5 minute walk from the Queenstown CBD. We stayed in room 19, and we found the room to be neat, tidy, and well presented. The hosts were both very friendly and helpful.
My only criticisms would include:
1. Having a dining table in the lounge room (It's great to have a kitchen area to prepare a nice dinner, it's a shame that there isn't anywhere to eat it other than the couch).
2. The room could have been serviced better (we never had the bed made and the kitchen could have been wiped clean from time to time).
Other than these 2 points, we found our stay very positive and look forward to returning.

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for three nights at the end of March. It was clean, comfortable and pleasant.Nice outlook of the mountain and the gondola. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Busy road during the day but very quiet at night. Extremely reasonable rates. Easy flat walk to town.

Room Tip: Choose an upper floor.

The new managers (about 18 months) Wayne and Jan are true gems! And they themselves make sure the rooms are spot on. Easy walking distance over the sport greens to town, there is no parking in town so that is excellent to leave the car here. Nothing is far from there. Road in front is very busy (a main thoroughfare), but not at night, so no problems for sleeping. Apartments are fresh, clean, well maintained, fully equipped (dishwasher, microwave, overn, fridge freezer - yes, Wayne is gradually changing those fridge doors to open more easily), not the best views but still great views (best views elsewhere cost a lot more and are often lower standard rooms for the $s). I sure will be back again, and again, and again.

Room Tip: I dont think they have any rooms "less good" - was well designed that all rooms have reaso...
