This affordable hotel perches above Lake Wakatipu’s shores, a five-minute drive from Queenstown’s centre. Lake views are featured from a selection of the modestly furnished studios and units, most offering a kitchenette, while the two bedroom option spreads over two levels. Enjoy a splash in the outdoor pool in the warmer months, relax with a soak in the hot tub, and wind down by the crackling open fire in the intimate bar after a meal in the restaurant, with its beautiful Lake Wakatipu and Remarkables mountain range backdrop.

Attractions near the Discovery Sherwood Hotel
Experiencing Hydro Attack
Based on Lake Wakatipu, Hydro Attack is a water-faring experience completely different from anything else in the world. Once the the Seabreacher watercraft gets started, it’s capable of high speeds, is fully submersible and can jump metres above the water's surface.
While cruising along on the water, the Seabreacher can reach 80 kilometres per hour and underwater it can hit 40 kilometres per hour. The driver won't hold back if you give them permission, spinning the watercraft around and leaping out into the air. Hydro Attack is the only company that currently gives the public a chance to ride in one of these incredible vessels.
Climbing up Queenstown Hill
Towering behind Discovery Sherwood Hotel, Queenstown Hill forms a prominent part of the landscape. The return trek to the top is relatively easy and only takes between two and three hours. Once you reach the peak, you're rewarded with panoramic views of Queenstown and the surrounding area.
On the way up there are plenty of opportunities to take photos of the view and the interesting sculptures located along the path. Although there are steep sections to navigate, the track is maintained year-round for safety. The use of specialist equipment is not required, but you may want to pack food and water.
