          I would totally come back here!”

          It's really convenient because it's close to the city center and to bus stops. The staff is very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. There's a nice common room downstairs too where you can just hang out. We weren't able to try the breakfast though since it wasn't part of our booking but I saw that they opened early (around 7:30am if I recall correctly). Wifi is good and fast. Bathroom is very clean and there are toiletries available. Beds were comfy too! This is definitely the only place I will stay at every time I go to Queenstown.

          Amazing location with a huge room”

          Highly recommend this hotel - Fran on reception was amazing checking us in. Parking on site is great for the busy streets. We were lucky to have room T6 which had the most amazing view of the hill and a window out the side looking up to the backpackers way. Huge room with seating to enjoy the view while your partner was getting ready. Huge bath which we were able to soak in after a long day travelling, loved the Manuka honey cream. A short walk into town down the (very) steep hill or through the gardens. We did not have breakfast but the dining area looked cozy and tables outside to enjoy the sun. Everything you need!

          Awesome stay”

          Hotel rooms are typical but it is the people that make a difference. We LOVED our one night stay at this facility. The hotel manager could not be nicer - the rooms are large, clean and extremely convenient. This is a boutique hotel which is an easy 5 minute walk to cbd. Love the level of service!!! Highly recommended

          The hotel is a short walk to the centre of town but nice to be out of the hustle and bustle. Room was very roomy, comfortable and well equipped room - they even had fresh milk in the bar fridge. Ryan was extremely helpful with restaurant reservations and tour advise. Would absolutely stay again.

          Convenient location, excellent room, fantastic service ... would definitely stay again”

          Staying at Central Ridge really helped us fully enjoy our time in Queenstown. The exceptional service started the *instant* we arrived ... we were surprised to see the manager Randhir at the top of the driveway to collect our luggage from the shuttle bus and take them directly to our room. He also offered helpful advice on sightseeing and activities. The cooked breakfast was excellent. We ordered omelettes every day which came out light and fluffy - just how we like them. When our outbound flight was cancelled half an hour after we checked out, we phoned Randhir in a panic and he kindly put us to be back in the same room, no trouble. We can't recommend Central Ridge Boutique Hotel highly enough. While the hotel doesn't have fancy interior design, what it does have is bucket loads of good old-fashioned customer-focused service!

          We love Central Ridge, and have stayed twice now. The rooms are lovey and spacious, and the staff are fantastic - going out of their way to help suit our travel plans, and extremely late check in time. The only thing we didn’t love was was super soft bed, but you can never suit everyone when it comes to beds. Would highly recommend!

          Queenstown is a busy place and it’s difficult to find parking around Queenstown Mall. We just parked our car in the hotel carpark and walked to Queenstown Mall (just a 2-8 min walk). Menu breakfast was offered from 7:30 so it’s perfect for us as we were going to drive early to the next destination.
