Where to Stay in Queenstown
Downtown Queenstown is an area filled with five-star hotels and other luxurious accommodation options. If you love a pampering after a long day on the slopes or on the water, or if you maybe just want an especially comfy bed for the night, this area is one of the best places to stay in Queenstown.

Gibbston Valley lies deep in Queenstown wine country. For culture vultures who love a good scenic tour and wine tasting, this is a great place to stay in Queenstown. A short drive back to the town and up to the ski lodges, this is the perfect place to relax and unwind on any tour of the region.

Arrowtown is a little way out of Queenstown itself but still provides wonderful rustic hospitality. Perfectly placed for those who wish to tour museums and get into the hills for a hike, Arrowtown is the place to be. A former Gold Rush town, its unique history and architecture set it apart.

The many Queenstown ski resorts are among the most well-appointed and highest-quality places to stay in town. Placed close to the snowfields to allow easy access to the slopes, lifts and training facilities, if you plan to spend a lot of time in the snow or hiking during summer then these are where you should be looking. It'll be easy to round up gear when staying here too, thanks to the onsite shops and hire centres.
