      The hotel is located lake front not far walking from the town centre. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The standard room is a bit old, needs a bit of a refresh. Overal still good value for expensive Queenstown.

      Lots of bugs at night. though no harm but its unpleasant. They charge you for parking in the hotel parking lots. Abit old but well it's okay. You gotta walk a fair bit to reach Queenstown. Nonetheless it's still OK.

      I love the hotel. The view is just astonishing. Locations is just across the wakatipu lake. Would be nice if you install a jacuzzi. Oh i have problems with the bathroom. First it doesnt match the design of the room. Bathrooom looks old, and some leakage on the bath tube. Not cool. Beside those minor; i would definetly reccomend this hotel to all of you

      Clean and comfortable room, friendly and helpful staff. Buffet breakfast is excellent but I don't know of there is much variety because the two days we had breakfast the food was the same. We tried the dinner buffet as well and it is very good value for money! Our 4th floor room had a view of the lake, but not a direct balcony since all the rooms on our side have sliding doors that lead to a large outdoor common area. Try to get a room with a direct balcony for unobstructed views!

      Nice stay at the hotel”

      Location, cleanliness, price

      This is a very lovely hotel with very location, just about 10 minute walk to the central. We were on the 7th floor which has the laundry service just across the hallway and car park right outside our window but it was still very quite at night. We had a room with great view of the water. The room is not spacious but good enough for 4 people, there were 2 bunk beds in single size. The TV is big enough but there were only about 10 channels. The bathroom was quite old looking but very clean. I loved the outdoor swimming pool and spa. Even though it was quite cold but the water in the pool was warm. Spa wasn't working properly but it was quite nice to spend half an hour sitting in the boiling hot water after a good swim. There were internet everywhere inside the hotel but sometimes the connection wasn't very good but other than that. It was a fabulous stay. I would definitely recommend this place.

      It was our first time staying at the resort. The room was huge, and clean. The bed is super big and very comfortable to sleep in. The only down side is the wifi. It worked most of the time but once in awhile we couldn't access the Internet. Its location is very close to the central, just about 10 minute walk.

      Brilliant lake views from a verywell located hotel”

      The Lake View Junior Suite is large and has beautiful lake views particularly from the balcony. The buffet breakfast is fantastic with stunning lake views from the dining room.

      I found the head receptionist Leo a little abrupt when I arrived and he made me feel I was an unwelcome inconvenience to his busy day. He was on the phone when I walked up and took another call while he was dealing with me so I appreciate that he was busy. He didn't keep me waiting for long and he wasn't rude to me though. He dealt with me efficiently, but it is nice to feel welcome on arrival which wasn't the case. We enjoyed our stay, particularly the lovely friendly waiter staff in the dining room, the views and the fabulous buffet breakfast. Great!

      Absolutely beautiful lake & mountain view”

      View, mountains, lake

      This hotel is located very centrally and just in front of the lake. They have kindly given us an upgrade to a lake-view room which was fantastic. Free wifi with good connection too. It was wonderful waking up to this beautiful mountains and lake view. We stayed an additional night. Would not hesitate to stay here again should I return.

      what can i say about this hotel? 1 word: awesome! rydes lakeland resort queenstown is a great hotel by the side of the lake. in the afternoon, you can enjoy an afternoon stroll at the garden, sitting on the bench looking at the swans swim. this is a great hotel, i've no regret & for sure, will return to stay there again when i go queenstown.

      the lake view

      the hotel has the amazing lake view, it is near the city actually just walking distance. Queenstown is really beautiful, lots of adventures and can do scenic tours if you like... We suggest you do Sky diving, dinner at sky restaurant, jetboat, bungy and heli scenic like what we did... its really awesome...

      locations

      I really wanna go back again. The hotel staff are very nice. I extend my stay and they tried their best to offer same room for me which they drop a note to my room. tour desk, Mister is also very helpful. He contacts and booked tour program for me though it's just on same day to book n go. i saw many tourists who stayed in other hotels will come to take a photo of scenery front of Rydges hotel that means the hotel take a great view in queenstown. the distance from hotel to shopping area is just 3-5 mins walk. P.L.this hotel doesn't have bellboy service, i guess.... can't wait to go there again!!!

      Best location with wonderful view”

      Best scenery from my room

      I like the hotel location as it is easy to access. The hotel provides the lake view room for me. It is so wonderful when you view the lake during the morning and evening time. I enjoyed the comfortable room for the two nights stay.
