We flew into Queenstown, New Zealand from the Gold Coast, Australia in March. The Holiday Inn Frankton Road is an older hotel with a great location. It has 3 different buildings and I believe we were in an older section. Our room was small compared to newer hotels and had not been updated recently but it was clean. It had a queen bed, dresser, nightstands, chair and luggage rack. It felt a little crowded. The bathroom had a shower/tub combo. There was a small balcony with a lake view. The hotel had a guest laundry, thankfully, because we'd been traveling for a couple of weeks. There was a good restaurant with an incredible picture window overlooking the lovely Lake Wakatipu, and we enjoyed our meal there. The hotel sits on a hillside. There was a bus stop on the road below the hotel. It was not the newest and could use a refresh, but it served our purposes for 2nts.

This is a nice, modern, clean hotel. Views from every corner of any area. The onsite restaurant is a nice addition as there's not much in walking distance and the chef prepared an enjoyable meal. Comfy bed, clean throughout. I will have to come back in Winter to get the postcard view. Staff were helpful anywhere. There is bike tracks everywhere to take in the scenery if you're that way inclined. Or just stay in the nicely appointed room with a bottle of red. Enjoy!

Room tip: Certain rooms have specific views, so if that's what you're after ring direct and discuss to get the most of what you're paying.

The restaurant was nice and food was good, that’s the only nice thing I can say.

Our room with a view was right on top of the car park. No privacy whatsoever and the view had a big tree in front of it. Not quite what we expected for $330 a night and it gets worse, please read on.

On arrival and needing to use the bathroom I quickly found out the toilet brush has not been cleaned in months, it stank the whole unit out. It was filthy!!
I complained immediately to a staff member outside the unit doing cleaning rounds. They sent a cleaner up to re clean the bathroom and get rid of the smell plus they replaced the brush.
We were not offered a clean room, I was almost sick 🤢 at the time and I really thought that was the least they could do, that brush was disgusting and it will be forever imprinted into my memory. 😩
There was also Mould growing in the corner of the bath/shower, the place is not cleaned properly.
The beds were hard and uncomfortable, they charge $20 a night for you to park your car and they take $200 bond at the beginning of your stay, charge you the $10 exchange rate and when you go to get your money back they charge you another $10 to give it back.
A $330 room turn into a $360 room. Do yourself a favour and stay somewhere else.

No photos as it is a memory I hope to forget.

Room tip: If you must stay here, add the cost of parking your car per night $20, cars are not parked outside your room.

Beautiful views from the balcony. Staff extremely helpful and very pleasant. I had difficulty walking because I have to have a hip replacement. The staff arranged for a vehicle to drive me as close as possible to the room. Very much appreciated that they go the extra mile
