Didn't realise the hotel is away from the main CBD, and this turned out to be a bonus as we were obliged to travel by water ferry to and from CBD; a treat in itself. This also took us away from the fun and hectic centre which is perfect if you're in you 20-30's, though too busy for us at night! Lakeside setting is excellent as are the rooms, restaurant, cafes and service. Only small niggle.... hotel has a pool ..... use of which is at an additional cost which always grates with me.

Booked here but they had no room so moved me to another hotel. When I get to my room finally I find that the room was made up with two singles instead of the king bed I had booked. Hotel sorted it at 9pm. Don’t know if I would stay here again

Don't stay here - parking is a NIGHTMARE

Pros: Clean. Good breakfast at the neighbouring Hilton.
Cons: Parking is a nightmare.
Location: Doubletree is located out of town in a quiet, picturesque area. It is part of a recent hotel/residential development.
Hotel isn't bad, although rooms are like shoe boxes. Parking, however, is an absolute nightmare. Parking is on a 'first come first served' basis and every day/night a multitude of guests (including us on several occasions) have to park on the street - 5 - 10 minutes walk away. The Hilton offers a golf-cart shuttle service to and from the road, but it's pointless, as they never answer their phone, so you can't contact them for a lift. Doubletree is out of town, so if you're staying here you're going to be driving. Hence my advice to not stay here - the parking situation is simply ridiculous.

Friendly staff, excellent location and facilities, house keeping staff were amazing and made each day coming back to my room a very nice experience with little notes and treats. I will definitely be staying here again in the future.

Nice and quiet hotel

The hotel in general is ok. The room is clean but the toilet has a pungent smell. The hotel was informed but the toilet still smell for the entire week of our stay. I did not think the toilet was cleaned well. The bathroom basin is clogged. The hotel is isolated from Queenstown town center, nice and quiet. The hotel should provide more regular shuttle bus services to and from town center, and more shuttle seat capacity for its guests. Hotel guests should not need to catch the water taxi to and from town. Hotel should make it convenient for guests. Hotel should provide a heated drying rack for wet ski gears.
