Best luxury hotels in Queenstown
After a day out on the slopes or tackling one of the many adventure activities in Queenstown, there's nothing better than relaxing in your luxury hotel. With comfortable beds that you never want to get out of, stunning landscape views, designer bathrooms and spa facilities, treating yourself to a 5-star experience can be the icing on the cake for your Queenstown getaway.
Luxury hotels in Queenstown tend to be a little further from the hustle of the city centre so you get that peace and privacy you desire. Offering "the total experience", Azur lodge has nine private villas with views that are almost too good to be true and is only a five-minute drive from the action. If you'd prefer to be within walking distance of the city centre, the beautifully-restored Hulbert House has six luxury rooms with lavish decor and on-point hospitality. Or you may like to try out Queenstown Park Boutique Hotel with room outlooks to either the Queenstown Gondola or the Remarkables. Wherever you end up staying, when you need transportation or help with planning an outing, your boutique hotel concierge will take care of everything for you. This means that you can spend less time worrying about the finer details and concentrate on enjoying your time in this beautiful region.
Ideal for family holidays or group getaways, skip the hotel altogether and book a 2-, 3-, or 4-bedroom apartment to keep everyone together. This set-up makes planning your time in Queenstown much easier as everyone can be involved in discussions about which ski field you are going to head to or sharing photos from the day's events. With the added bonus of your own kitchen and living space, you can prepare your own breakfast before getting that early shuttle. Or you may need to grab a midnight snack when the restaurants are closed.
In such a naturally-stunning region, being able to take in those picture-perfect views from your living room and balcony will certainly put the icing on the cake. We chose The Rees Hotel & Luxury Apartments, Glebe Apartments and LakeRidge Queenstown for this very reason. And while the views alone would be enough for us to want to book apartments at these properties, amenities such as a spa, gym and private balconies make for an even more comfortable stay.
With many hostels and backpacker lodges in the central city catering for the influx of snowboarders and adrenaline junkies each year, you can find a place to rest your head at a more appealing price than a regular hotel. While you may not have as many creature comforts, you can grab a bed for as little as $54 a night, helping you to budget in more fun experiences.
If you don't mind staying in a dorm room or sharing a bathroom, think of cheap accommodation as a place to shower and sleep after a big day out. Not so keen on a dorm room but like the price? You may want to consider Sir Cedrics Tahuna Pod Hostel or JUCY Snooze Queenstown. Both have sleeping pods where you can relax behind a privacy curtain or blind.
Hostels are a great way to meet other people and often have evening activities for you to socialise with other guests – a definite advantage for solo travellers. But don't worry if you are not into loud hostels with people drinking all day long – Nomads Queenstown Backpackers is a dry hostel with no alcohol allowed onsite.
If you're looking for something a bit more homely than a hotel or hostel, you can book private accommodation in Queenstown through Stayz or Airbnb.
Alternatively, the South Island is a popular place to hire a campervan from companies like Jucy. There are places that you can park for free if you have your own bathroom and cooking facilities. If you don't, Queenstown has a number of campgrounds where you can park for the night. The closest to the city centre is Queenstown Lakeview Holiday Park, or if you would prefer to be nearer to Coronet Peak, you can book at Queenstown Top 10 Holiday Park.
There are six Accor hotels in Queenstown. Novotel Queenstown Lakeside, Sofitel Queenstown Hotel & Spa, Hotel St Moritz Queenstown - MGallery and Peppers Beacon are within 1km of the city centre. Breakfree The Point and Mercure Queenstown Resort are both within 2.5km of the city centre.
If you are looking for a hotel close to the Queenstown airport, you can find Ramada Suites by Wyndham Queenstown Remarkables Park and Wyndham Garden Queenstown within 1.5km of the entrance.
These sites let you make a refundable booking for your trip to Queenstown, so there's less risk of losing the cost of your stay or deposit. Some sites only offer free cancellation on select Queenstown hotels or at a slightly higher rate, so it's best to check the terms on your booking before confirming your stay.
Most sites, like Wotif or Expedia, will clearly state whether each Queenstown hotel is non-refundable.
Using one of our coupon codes at these sites will save you money on your Queenstown stay. Some may ask you to pay for your stay upfront rather than on arrival in order to apply the code to your Queenstown booking, but the same cancellation policy does apply so if you are able to cancel, you'll be able to get refunded.

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.

Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
