Lake Wakatipu and Remarkable Mtns - New Zealand

Lake Wakatipu and Remarkable Mtns

NOVOTEL - now known as Mercure Queenstown.: Truly Stunning Scenery!

Comfortable, clean, friendly and what you would expect of a middle to up market hotel. The staff are willing to help and you enjoy a very pleasant rest here, it is not in the middle of town, so away from the noise of late nite revellers.

Unique Qualities: The lounge is amazing, plenty of comfortable seats, lovely big fire, and one wall is completely glass with the lake and mountains in view - truly amazing. Just sitting there writing postcards and letters is a very enjoyable experience.
The dining room has this wonderful view too, out these huge glass windows, overlooking the lake and mountains. Just superb!!

Address: Sainsbury Rd, Fernhill, QUEENSTOWN

Comparison: about average

Directions: Head through town and follow the signs to Glenorchy, and just out of town the sign points to Fernhill on the right up a hill.

Price: less than US$20
