            Proximity to town. Apartment style but cleaned and tidied every day.

            Quite pricey. no view from our room

          • Family with children

            Location and room layout etc

            Some of the furnitire in the room was looking a bit tired

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Comfortable bed and luxury shower

            The location of our room was very disappointing rm 711 no view except for side window!!!!!

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            I liked its closeness too the village and all amenerties. The room was comfortable and I slept well. it had all I needed in a motel

            nothing. It was all good

          • Single

            Pepper's Beacon staff at the front desk were friendly and very helpful. The rooms were set up as requested. The location of the hotel is fantastic, a short 5 min walk to the centre of Queenstown. The outdoor BBQ facilities were great, if you want to use those.

            We didn't like the lack of prompt service from some staff, for example, we wanted the minibar cleared and it took 3 calls and about 4 hours to get this done. The bathroom in our suite was too small for 4 adults, we did find rooms with 2 people in them had much bigger bathrooms.

          • Family with children

            I liked the location and breathtaking views

          • Older travelers
            4.6

            The area of the room

            The window was to small for the room. There was a door connecting the room to another witch wasn't conveniently sealed so we could ear the noise of the other room. The first night we couldn't sleep because of the noise of the people that party next door till 5:30 am. In the morning we complain at the reception, they guaranteed it wouldn't happen again. The next night it happen again, and even with our phone calls to the reception through the night and they didn't stop. If the door was to be well sealed this wouldn't happened. next morning we left!

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            Excellent service at reception - willing to help us when ever we asked at any time...

            Location of spa - we expected this to be outside on a deck overlooking the mountains...however it was enclosed in a room off the gym.....which is not really keeping with what Queenstown is all about...

          • Family with children
            6.2

            The View from our room was amazing, and spacious, we were upgraded, we had his & hers basins & an awesome spa bath!, The location was so handy toqueenstown

            The bed was uncomfortable, the air was too dry from the heater/ No air conditioning, there were no gowns in our room when we arrived & the fry pan was loosing it's teflon coating so we had to get another one through reception along with gowns.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            Spacious, privacy and low noise was really good.

            Lack of cooking implements and shocking can openers! Access to reception was vwery convoluted and have general concern for fire/emergency escapes.

          • Family with children
            9.2

            Lovely accommodation, high quality rooms, yet friendly and relaxed staff. Very close to centre of Queenstown, so easy to go out in the evenings. Good facilities for skiers.

          • Family with children
            9.2

            Location and size of rooms/lounge area. Fantastic views.

            Beds were terrible! Too soft!!!

          • Family with children
            7.0

            Close to city centre.. great view of the lake and surrounding mountains.

            Upon check-in, there was a sign that says something about 'hot soup for checking in guest', but nobody said anything about it. It was cold and it would have been a plus point then.

          • Family with children
            9.6

            The staff went out of their way to help. The lakeside suite we were in was sensational. Well fitted out and loads of room for a family of 4. Great views of the lake.

            They have sky but only have selected channels in the rooms. For the money you pay to stay I think more channels should be available, particularly the channels my teenage children would have appreciated and the movie channel.

          • Family with children
            8.2

            Mostly the staff, they were excellent. We had quite bad weather and it was unsatisfactory that we couldnt access one of our rooms without getting wet and cold.

            They didnt have a pool or undercover walkway to room.
