                                The Kawarau Hotel was fantastic. The room was clean & well serviced, the buffet breakfast was delicious & the staff were friendly & helpful. Highly recommended & we will be staying here again.

                                1. There was no dresser (cabinet) space to put clothes. 2. Garbage (rubbish) containers were inadequate - small and not enough of them 3. The decline in the floor from the main area into the bathroom is unnecessary. I predict you will have injures from people that will forgot and fall when they approach from the bathroom into the main area.

                                The staff were fantastic - In particular, Sebastian was great on our arrival - sense of humour first, friendly second and above all efficient and accommodating - (we arrived a bit early so he worked around that which we really appreciated). A great experience over-all (will come back)

                                I believe in this day and age - Wifi should be available at all points in the hotel as part of the nightly rate. Charging exorbitant fees to access it from the lobby comes across as gouging (which is a real turn off).

                                Amazing! Great staff made us feel welcome and a friend of the hotel, great room, parking was excellent as well as other bonuses like the cinema, water taxi and free trips into town. Usually would stay at different hotels when we go to Queenstown but we had such a great time that we have decided that when we stay in Queenstown we are going to continue to come to the Kawarau Hotel everytime!!Loved it!!

                                Only things 2 things we found werent so good which are only minor things, they are there was only tea/coffee provided in the rooms but our group of four are only hot chocolate drinkers so this would have been nice to have. The other issue is breakfast was rather expensive compared to what we have had at other hotels for a similar price ie we have had a buffet of pancakes, sausages, bacon and a lot of other things for I think only $5 per person differance in price.

                                Very stylish resort close to Queenstown. Staff were very friendly and helpful. A beautiful setting to spend a few days - didnt want to leave!

                                Free wifi would've made this place amazing.

                                Kawarau Hotel is one of the best i have ever stayed before. Location is just a little bit confused with the main Hilton Hotel. Service is excellent. Room is nice, view is awesome. Very delicious breakfast with great view. We will be back again~~ A+++

                                I enjoyed my stay I found the facilities and the staff to be excellent. . The Kawarau Hotel was just lovely and the views and scenery wonderful.

                                I ended up with a sleepless night because the Fan in the Bathroom would not turn off and droned on all night. Would not expect this in a new establishment.

                                If you want to stay at a trendy hotel with some cooking facilities and super views then the Kawarau is for you. If you are looking for somewhere practical with helpful staff and a restaurant that is open then stay somewhere else. It has air conditioning which was great with the warm weather.

                                The check in staff were so busy trying to be uber cool and aloof that they were completely unhelpful. The kitchen is well equipped but not very practical. The room is trendy but very tight on space. The bedroom was not really seperate but a door pulls across to divide it from the main room. The room wasn't very clean - we found a large needle & thread on the carpet near the TV. We arrived on 2nd Jan which is a public holiday. Half the hotel was closed including the restaurant (noodle bar) and the other restaurant on the complex was full so we had no choice but to go into town which is quite a long drive or a water taxi ($15 per person return). So if you plan to stay on a public holiday beware there might be less facilities available than you expect.

                                Great hotel, very comfortable rooms and facilities. All new and working.

                                Really remote from the center of Queenstown. Might be an advantage for some but if you do want a reasonable selection for dining or other activities, you need to be aware that it takes a drive.

                                Liked the room the gar ageing and the fact that our anniversary was acknowledged. Really appreciated that we could get into our room before official check in time and extend check out time with no problems.

                                The fact that our room wasn't over looking the lake but the concrete wall.

                                It was difficult to find in the village - we ended up at the Hilton (as our confirmation email came from there) who directed us down the hill. If the sign was a bit clearer or we had been provided instruction in the email it would have been easier to find :)

                                It was very comfortable and close to Queenstown and well priced

                                No free Wi Fi, everywhere else we went in nz, we had at least an hour of free Wi Fi, if not more, and also if not more very reasonably priced - the Kawarau's fees of $14.99 for an hour or $30 for 24 hrs were exorbitant, and the business centre being in the other Hilton up the road was not convenient at all. Therefore will not recommend this hotel to any of our friends travelling to nz and will not stay there again on our return - very sad really because everything else about this hotel was fabulous - but no Wi Fi is a deal breaker in this day and age!
