Clean, comfy location and beds but the kitchen was little uncovenience. No hood and lack of kitchen wares.

An older style facility that has been refurbished. The rooms are comfortable with adequate heating and small kitchenette.

Sherwood has a very “community” vibe and is unique in the way it’s set up with common areas where guests can chill and socialise. The staff is absolutely the shining star of Sherwood. They will go above and beyond to ensure that you’re well looked after. I know being in hospitality it’s their job but the way it comes across is genuine and you can clearly sense that they care and they’re not just doing their job. Well done and keep up the awesome work!

Rooms are insulated with thermacol blocks sticked on to one wall and left unpainted concrete wall with patches. Not enough heating as Gas heater when run on Max still doesn’t heat the room. And very bad ventilation as lots of moisture is in the room as all glass windows has condensation in the morning. Pretty bad experience. Would not recommend.

Dear Yahya, we are sorry you did not enjoy the experience of the up-cycled Sherwood rooms, the materiality selection you mention (unpainted concrete walls) is a deliberate choice and the thermal blocks, these are recycled cork panels for wall linings – these are carbon negative. We do acknowledge that this may not suit all travellers and had we known of your cold room a remedy would have been actioned immediately.

This place is amazing! We only stayed for 1 night, but wanted to stay longer. The decor is cute and hip, and staffs are all super nice. Their bar and the restaurant is also awesome. Love that we could have breakfast till 11am, which means you can have your breakfast even after you check out. Definitely would love to stay here again if we are coming back to Queenstown.

- There are NO TVs in most rooms. If you have small kids, this can be a big drawback. Also no microwave or oven, however there are stovetop elements and kitchen utensils. - The property is old, it appears the owners are improving it, bit by bit, but is not completed in my view. Our unit's bathroom had a large split in the linoleum flooring, walls had poorly repaired damage in various areas. Furnishings are pretty funky/cool though. - Artwork is only attached by small magnets, beware for small kids (a choking/swallowing hazard) and as they are not very strong, this would be easy to damage, and you could be charged for this. - We left after one night, as the property just was not what we believed we were booking, reception staff and the third party booking company were actually really great about this, which is why I'm giving then an OK rating. - if you are looking for an eco resort / yoga retreat/place to crash after a day on the mountain, it's ok.
