Strongly recommend!”

We booked about a month ahead of our journey, until arrival we kept smooth communication with Gold Rush’s host, he was really helpful. When we arrived he gave us warm and detailed information around town and tips for our following railway journey. The next morning we left early for the Wilderness Railway and planned to left Queenstown right after the railway. Then around 1pm when we were ready to set go from the station, there came a gentleman holding some t-shirt asking whether it was ours. It appeared to belongs to us as we forgot it in the inn. We didn’t recognise him at first and he asked whether we liked the railway and left. Only then did we realised that he was the host of Gold Rush Inn! So it seemed that he came all the way to the railway station just for returning the t-shirt that we left to us! He was so nice but we didn’t even have time to say thank you! So here we wish to express all of our appreciation to the kind and considerate gentleman and recommend him to everyone!

We spent a night at Comfort Inn Gold Rush in Queenstown to break to break the drive from Hobart to Cradle Mountain through Derwent Bridge and Lake St. Clair. Despite being on the main road, it was relatively peaceful and we had a pleasant evening and a good night's sleep.

Clean and neat and well designed.”

Very clean and comfortable. Very pleasant to stay in. Friendly and helpful innkeeper and friendly staff. Can book a cruise at office here. However no dine in meals available. (There used to be.) Takeaways are available from the West Coaster motel a little way down the road, though and can be ordered on phone and usually delivered too.. Lots of nice places to eat in town. I would have liked an HDMI port on the TV so I could have used my Chromecast, but as it was we had little time for watching TV. I highly recommend this motel. I stay here with my mother when on holidays. We never stay anywhere else in Queenstown. We are enjoying our stay here very much.

Comfort Inn lives up to its name.”

Interior of our room was attractive and clearly well designed and equipped to make guests comfortable. The wood-panelled on-site restaurant is very welcoming. Bath in en-suite a rare bonus.

We enjoyed our two-night stay at this motel. Surprisingly quiet, considering location on main road. The room was spacious and well-equipped, with comfortable bed and well designed kitchen area. Wood panelling and decor was attractive. Bathroom immaculately clean. Continental buffet breakfast very adequate and a good evening meal was served at 8 pm when we arrived, even though we had not pre-ordered. Owner was most obliging and concerned to ensure our stay was enjoyable.

Lovely room. Lovely staff. Good value for money.

From the moment we arrived we were impressed. The owner greeted us & he was just lovely. Our room was very clean & comfortable. They offered free wi-fi which was great. There were all the extra little touches in the room which made it feel so welcoming and comfortable. The restaurant meal was very basic but the dining room was nice and the service was good. Possibly our best accommodation memory of our Tasmanian tour. Good value, great service, lovely people, excellent accommodation. We enjoyed so much we even stayed an extra night. We highly recommend and will definitely visit again.

Very good”

We stayed one night in a family room which had a double/queen sized bed, a bunk and a single. The room was clean and there was enough room for the 4 of us. The only negative to the beds was that the bunk bed creaked all night and was a little wobbly. The bathroom was a little on the small size but really its only a bathroom so it didn't need to be spacious. The staff was friendly and gave us ideas of places to visit. I found the wifi to be a little slow but so was I given how much we had been travelling! Overall it was a nice stay.

We arrived late due to the long journey which we dont expect from the winding highway 😅 Check in was smooth and owner was so thoughtful to ask if we had dinner. He tried calling up a pizza cafe but it has closed for the day. We ensure him that we have some cup noodles with us. Location is fine but it really gets tooooo quiet as it gets darker. Rooms are clean and perfect. Thumbs up!
