The Spire Hotel
This premium boutique hotel is concealed in plain sight in a small laneway in the center of Queenstown.

Blue Peaks Lodge – stay in Queenstown
Blue Peaks Lodge, one of the greatest value for money hotels in Queenstown, is incredibly popular and frequently sells out. It’s no surprise minutes away from Queenstown’s hustle and bustle. But still far enough away to enjoy a more peaceful neighborhood. That it’s centrally positioned.
Blue Peaks Lodge is a Queenstown motel, thus you can park your car for free on their site! Because the lodge is only a short walk from the town center, you may leave your car parked and independently enjoy all of Queenstown’s activities (such as the Skyline and Luge, lake cruises, restaurants, bars, and so on). In the winter, you don’t even need to go into town to catch the ski bus; there’s a stop right in front of the hotel.
The rooms start at 20 square meters (215 square feet). This is for Blue Peaks’ single ‘hotel’ accommodation, the Queen Room (meaning without kitchen amenities other than tea and coffee). The Studio (34 sqm | 366 sqft), 1-bedroom apartment (37 sqm | 398 sqft), and 2-bedroom apartment (55 sqm | 592 sqft) all offer large kitchenettes with a large fridge, microwave, and hob. So ideal for autonomous family vacations or staying with friends.
