Beautiful quality build & fittings. Convenient cafes & services. Lovely grounds and friendly staff. Maybe another mirror or two (we were in room 205) for guest convenience. Guest welcome, macaroons, choccies and Guest of the Day surprise made our Hilton stay in Queenstown NZ one we hope to repeat.

Let me start by saying I have stayed at the Hilton before and could not fault it at the time. This time I was not impressed from the moment of getting out of the car and checking in: My partner was not even acknowledged with a greeting, Had to drag our own bags our of car and told to leave them at reception and someone will take to our room (my first stay my bags were removed from the car straight away). Room for two people consisted of one facecloth, 1 hand soap, 1 hand towel, robes in closet were old and tattered, had no milk, fridge had freezer but no freezing trays to make icecubes to go with ice water. Went out the next day and came back to a room that had not been serviced (about 5pm). Rang reception and found that they are serviced between 10am and 6pm and apparently we should have told them at reception what time we wanted our room serviced. Breakfast - was asked to wait till a table became free (of which there were free tables already). We were seated at a table next to the main thoroughfare. I asked for another table which they did give us a nicer one immediately. We sat at our table not knowing if to wait for waiter or just go and help ourselves. Finally someone appeared and told us what we could order from. Overall from my last stay I found this time around a very disappointing time. Decor - we watched a guest trying to straighten a lamp shade but to no avail. Very dark place. Lighter colours needed. Standards have dropped immensely.
