Holiday Inn Express & Suites Queenstown Overview
Holiday Inn Express & Suites should be named Queenstown’s Ultimate Family Hotel. It has everything a family needs (even a family of 5). It’s nowhere near luxury and it’s not trying to be. But it is nice. Clean and fairly new (2019), so still in good condition. Only a 5 minute walk to the centre of town.
The standard rooms are small at 20 square metres, but nice with a lot of modern requirements like usb points near the bed. There are some larger rooms at 24 square metres, you’ll pay a little more for what is still only a mid size room. There’s also suites which offer more space 44 or 64 depending on whether you opt for 1 or 2 bedrooms. They have plenty of options for families with double Queen rooms, suites, and interconnecting rooms available.
Think of an airport lounge that serves pizza and drinks and you have Great Room Restaurant and bar. They offer a continental breakfast that you can grab to go if your heading for the mountain. And the offer an all day menu with light meals (think pizza) It’s kid friendly, and about as romantic as a food court in a mall. So not the place for your wedding anniversary diner, but great for a family holiday.
Holiday Inn has a fitness centre and a sauna.
Pretty much everyone loves this hotel. It’s new, well designed and well run. The only complaints are from really rich people who accidentally stayed here and thought it would be like a luxury lodge. It’s not it’s just like a really good well run 4 star family hotel.
