I stayed at the Crowne Plaza Queenstown with my son for 4 nights.
We found the hotel to have a great location, we could walk to everything. The staff were helpful and friendly. The beds were really comfy and the pillows were the best there was 4 pillows on each bed. The bathroom was not flash but had everything you need.
The breakfast room had a lovely view across the lake and a good buffet breakfast.
Our room had a garden view which was not great. I think it would be lovely to have a lake view.
