Visiting Queenstown – A City Guide

Queenstown, New Zealand sits beside Lake Wakatipu on South Island. Set beneath the dramatic peaks of the Southern Alps, it’s known for its ski fields, adventure activities like bungee jumping and rafting, and a breathtaking natural landscape. Visitors also enjoy exploring the lake by boat and touring the region’s Pinot Noir vineyards.

Queenstown: City Layout and Top Attractions

Queenstown’s compact settlement of boutiques, restaurants, galleries and hotels are nestled around the lake’s northeastern shore.

Use your IHG® Reward Club points to book your Queenstown accommodation at Crowne Plaza® Queenstown, and you’ll have an easy five-minute walk to Skyline Gondola, which carries visitors to Bob’s Peak for stunning views of the mountains, lake and town below. Across the street from the hotel, the historic TSS Earnslaw steamship runs guided lake tours.

Nearby, the region’s four ski fields offer world-class terrain and some of the Southern Hemisphere’s longest ski seasons. Cardrona’s alpine playground caters to all skill levels, while Treble Cone offers thrilling drops and off-piste adventures.

Eating out in Queenstown

There are great restaurants tucked into the charming streets and lanes of Queenstown. Lakefront bistros serve fresh seafood and BBQ in addition to regional cuisine. For something less formal, try Fergburger’s inventive hamburgers.

Central Otago is a successful wine region, known for its Pinot Noir. Tours of local wineries offer tastings, often pairing speciality wines with delicious local cheeses.

Culture and Nightlife in Queenstown

Queenstown’s lively nightlife scene caters to a lively visiting population of skiers, snowboarders and adventure-seekers in the laneways adjacent to the lakefront.

You can warm up with cocktails or a hot toddy after skiing in a jazz or wine bar, then later at night, head to clubs offering music from hip hop to rock and Cuban.

It’s worth timing your Queenstown holiday to catch one of the exciting winter festivals.

In June or July, the ski season kicks off with Winter Festival, which includes fireworks, live music and street parades. July’s NZ Mountain Film Festival screens international adventure sport films. Every August, the Peak to Peak adventure race sees competitors racing on skis, mountain bikes, kayaks, on foot and by bike.

Every second winter, the Audi quattro Winter Games features exciting displays of competitive skiing and slalom.

Shopping in Queenstown

Queenstown’s lakeside shopping precinct is easy to explore on foot and within walking distance of most Queenstown hotels. In the lanes running south of Camp Street, you’ll find a mix of international boutiques and shops offering New Zealand souvenirs. It’s a handy place to pick up sheepskin rugs, greenstone jewellery and high-quality wool and possum-fur clothing.

Nearby, the boutiques of gold rush settlement Arrowtown offer local art, designer fashion and speciality food and wine.

Adventure in Queenstown

Queenstown’s exhilarating range of adventure activities can be enjoyed in all seasons.

Best-known is Kawarau Bridge Bungy, where thrill-seekers leap off the suspension bridge down toward the Kawarau River. Kawarau Zipride lets visitors fly above the tumultuous water.

Both activities are a convenient 15-minute drive from the Holiday Inn® Queenstown Frankton Road hotel, where you can enjoy affordable “YOUR RATE” offers when you book direct through the IHG® website, app or by calling.

You can also get your kicks white water rafting, or riding the luge down from the Skyline complex, high above town.


Latest Queenstown Hotel Reviews

Nice new hotel, great location, friendly staff.
By ChampyNZ
A friend of us has referred this hotel a month ago when he heard that we are coming to Queenstown. My first impression was wow this hotel is so flash and so close to the city centre, only take like [More] 5-7minutes walk. The room is great, bed was really comfy, I gotta admit that i love the new smart TV in our room where i can connect my device and watch what i like while i stay. A couple of thing that i dislike was the parking, although there are free onstreet parking available however it is a bit hard to find one on peak day such as Fri/Sat, the hotel do have a private parking space for the guest but it cost $25 per day which i find a bit expensive. The hotel location is really great but the steep road to the centre and back could be something hard for the elderly to walk. Not a major concern if you are young and fit :) Definitely coming back to stay again. [Less]

Great first stay
By Nate
The hotel has only been open a few months, so everything is great. Staff were fantastic, nothing was an issue and always very friendly and helpful. Only a short stroll into town. Rooms are a [More] little small, however perfectly fine when you're out and about doing things all day. Due to the Covid level we didn't get to experience their normal breakfast offering. Wanted to eat in one night after a long day and there are limited offerings, however the staff told us about a delivery option for most Queenstown restaurants. We settled on the in-house pizza option, which was actually better than I was expecting. Post Covid that could be an area to improve on, especially when you're sitting around in the afternoon enjoying the sun and a drink, a nice cheese board would be great! Overall we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again. [Less]
Great view and value for money
By Pete
Room was well laid out, bed was a good size and comfortable. Issue with the lights flashing in the bathroom and the cap on the end of the heated towel rail was missing leaving wires exposed. Staff [More] were unable to remedy problem due to it being the weekend they offered to change us to another room which we declined. All up I would stay here again due to the amenities and location.

No literature in room for hotel info.... shower leaked out to floor at 1 corner, parking very limited. Breakfast ok but no stewed fruit would have been nice. Otherwise good price for 2 nights with [More] breakfast $50 voucher and breakfast. Very attentive staff. Very clean and amazing views. It could be a bit steep for elderly to get down to restaurant.
