This contemporary alpine chic-style hotel overlooks Lake Wakaitpu and the Remarkables mountains and is just a short stroll from the lakefront.

This hillside hotel is superbly positioned to showcase Queenstown’s awe-inspiring scenery and its cosy alpine-style reflects the dramatic Southern Alps that frame of Lake Wakaitpu. It’s an easy downhill stroll to the centre of town and a number of popular attractions are just a short walk away. See native birds at Kiwi Birdlife Park, experience the thrill of the canyon swing, or head to Skyline where you can enjoy incredible aerial views on a tranquil Gondola ride or enjoy luging down a scenic track. And if you’re tired after exploring the sights and shops you can jump in one of the town’s Green Cabs for a free ride back to the hotel (one trip each day).

Creative and contemporary cuisine is served at the Lombardi restaurant. Delicious international cuisine such as wild Fiordland venison loin and the signature wood-fired lasagne is accompanied by magnificent views of the Remarkables mountain range. Make the most of the beautiful setting by taking a picnic lunch to eat on the shores of Lake Wakatipu and reflect on your day while soaking in one of the cedar hot tubs that are tucked away in a terraced garden overlooking the imposing Cecil and Walter Peaks. Don’t miss daily happy hour at Lombardi Bar which overlooks the lake and mountain peaks and serves a local selection of Pinot Noirs, tapas, and creative cocktails. Pull up an armchair by the stone fireplace in The Library and get lost in a book, sip after-dinner drinks, or play board games.

The contemporary rooms and suites offer garden or lake views. Opt for a spacious residence-style One Bedroom Alpine Suite Lake View with Balcony to enjoy a lounge/dining area, kitchenette and panoramic views of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables mountain range. If you fancy a cosy night in then you can opt for the ‘Perfect Night In’ with a choice of pizza, popcorn and film combinations.
