Accommodation in Queenstown is perfectly placed to access the local ski resorts including Coronet Peak, The Remarkables and Cardrona. There are options for all budgets around the varied town from backpacker hostels to 5-star luxury.
Some of the lodgings are more ski friendly accommodation options that include ski lockers, shuttles and knowledgeable staff.
Our Snopro staff spend A LOT of their time in Queenstown accommodation delivering ski equipment. Here is a selection of our favourites.
Hiding in the centre of Queenstown, The Spire creates luxury and style for guests to enjoy some peace and serenity in the heart of a busy town. Enjoy the touch of class that The Spire brings to your ski holiday without missing out on the vibrant energy of Queenstown.
“Nestled in the heart of Queenstown, New Zealand’s premier holiday destination, The Spire Hotel offers award winning luxury Queenstown accommodation where genuine hospitality, serenity and style uniquely combine.”
The Rees offers stunning views and swift access to The Remarkables. Situated on the lakeside outside of Queenstown, The Rees is 5-star luxury that blends fine dining, service and location with the azure waters of Lake Wakatipu below the iconic mountain range. The courtesy shuttle allows you to dip in and out of town at your leisure or simply stay put for some peace and quiet after a day’s skiing.
“Showcasing breathtaking panoramic lake and alpine views, The Rees Hotel Queenstown is a sophisticated Five Star hotel situated right on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, with its own beach and private wharf.”
As you will come to find, Hotel St Moritz holds another option overlooking the Lake Wakatipu vistas. This creative hotel indulges in modern character ensuring an air of luxury for all who step foot inside. A little outside the centre of town, Hotel St Moritz forges a peaceful choice which is just a brief stroll to the shops and amenities. There are classic views of The Remarkables to help pick your ski field each morning too.
“Hotel St Moritz offers a choice of rooms and suites, each handsomely appointed, cleverly blending timeless classics with modern essentials. Panoramic views across lake and mountains are available in both rooms and suites.”
The QT Hotel is the latest luxury addition to the Queenstown hotel lineup. We love this funky modern design just 5 minutes from the centre of town. QT hotels have spread throughout Australia before making the jump across the ditch. A myriad of little extra touches makes it a unique experience for your ski holiday. In Queenstown, these include the company's own branded whisky, local wine, pocket hotties, cans of tinned snow and merino socks.
"Sitting pretty in nature’s playground, this lush lakeside resort emulates nostalgic alpine and après-ski ambiance – perfect for the pleasure seeking adventurer. Get your luxury with a side of the signature QT quirk in your new favourite place to stay and play in the stunning Southern Alps."
