Travellers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Central Ridge Boutique Hotel (“Central Ridge”) is perfectly positioned right in the heart of Queenstown, and it is a stone throw away from dozens of restaurants, outdoor cafes, and recreational activities that occupy the breezy waterfront and easy-going pedestrian malls. Central Ridge offers well-appointed, cozy and spacious rooms with a comfortable bed and continental breakfast. The team have plenty of local knowledge to guide and advice to you the best restaurants in town, fun filled outdoor activities. The attractions nearer to Central Ridge Boutique Hotel includes:- - Pedestrian mall at Queenstown centre (walking distance 2-3minutes); - Restaurants and outdoor cafe along side waterfront at Lake Wakatipu (walking distance 4-5 minutes); - Queenstown Garden (walking distance 2-3 minutes); - Steamer Whaft for the cruise “Lady of the Lake” to Walter Peak. They said no trip to Queenstown is complete without a cruise to Walter Peak High Country Farm (walking distance 4-5 minutes to Steamer Whaft); - Skyline Gondola (walking distance 10 minutes); - Coronet Peak ski area (driving 20 minutes) - Remarkable ski area (driving 40 minutes) - Vineyard tour activities (driving about 20 minutes) Our boutique hotel offers a very unique experience. We balance the privacy of a large hotel with the personal service of a boutique bed & breakfast. Queenstown accommodation doesn't get any better than Central Ridge Boutique Hotel, with its excellent value for money, and exceptionally high standards of accommodation, in-room massage, cafe and guest customer service.

I was very pleased with the location and room, and the staff was amazing! Quick 3-5 min walk to town (slight hill coming back but if my 65-year old mother can do it, so can you). I must reiterate, the staff did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable.

The hotel is quite adequate and comfortable with a pleasant if dated room and a limited breakfast. But at $400 US per night (via Expedia) it is very overpriced. We booked 5 months in advance so possibly the rate went down, but this is not a property that merits that rate.

Great hotel! They're about a 2-minute walk to/from the city center and to/from bus stops so it's very convenient to stay here. Staff is helpful, friendly, accommodating. Wifi is pretty fast. And there's a place to hang out in at the basement if you want to just relax at the

No, there is no elevator. Only 2 levels though, so if it's a problem, just book a ground floor unit.

Hi, Probably best to contact accommodation place direct as not all places are the same. I think by memory ours had a king bed and the room was very large as well.The view wasnt that great,that was on the ground floor,maybe ones on the 1st floor would be better. Regards M
