Hunting for Queenstown Accommodation? Try These Hotels Ranging from Budget to Bling

Queenstown is truly a town for all seasons: whether you visit in summer, winter, spring or fall, it has something for everyone. Visit local farms, tour Lord of the Rings filming locations, drift through phosphorescent caverns, and fly the fjords: you can enjoy these can’t-miss attractions while choosing from Queenstown's fine variety of accommodations.
Eichardt's: A Pretty Jewel at the Water's Edge:
When a journey is so special that nothing but the finest will do, Eichardt's Private Hotel will not disappoint. Only five suites are offered in this lakefront manor house, located in the heart of the shopping and entertainment district of Queenstown. The iconic white building will make you feel like royalty, with superior king beds and distinctive antiques throughout. Refined and genteel, Eichardt's caters to those enjoying a romantic honeymoon or anniversary with a full luxury spa and in-room fireplaces. While Eichardt's concentrates on providing unparalleled accommodation, they choose not to compete with the many high-end restaurants in the neighbourhood. Guests can, however, order 'room service' from the menus of several pre-eminent local establishments for the ultimate in privacy and comfort. To get a sense of just how above the rest Eichardt's towers, consider that rich and famous guests come and stay frequently. A night at Eichardt's can cost upward of a thousand dollars, but for that special occasion, or special someone--it's worth it.

A Sampling of Elegant Boutique Hotels
For a more moderately priced hotel that still comes with modern luxuries, consider a stay in a boutique hotel. The name says it all: customized, personal, and upscale. Mid-range boutique Queenstown accommodation options include the Nugget Point, with special packages on spa and stay combos and suite upgrades for longer staying guests, and the Hotel St. Moritz, slightly more expensive but boasting panoramic lake and mountain views from each of its rooms. While Brown's Boutique Hotel is up in the higher end of boutique hotel prices, they offer deals on extended stays. Expect to pay in the range of $120-$400 per night for a boutique hotel room or suite.

On a Budget? Try a Hostel
Add an "s" to hotel and you've got a hostel: these simple accommodations are pretty much the best deal you're going to get in Queenstown. Just five minutes from town, the Flaming Kiwi offers dormitory style accommodation from $25 per person, per night. Travellers wanting the comfort of a private hotel room with the fun, convivial atmosphere of a hostel should check out the single and double rooms at the waterfront Bumbles Backpackers. Prepare breakfast in the common kitchen, then enjoy it on the lakeside patio. Hostels are a great way to save money and forge international friendships with fellow travellers from all points of the planet.
Queenstown has something for everyone, from splashy deluxe digs to more humble but homey hostels. Since much of your time will be spent admiring the views, pretty much any room with a window will not disappoint in spectacular Queenstown. Whether palatial or just pretty, these recommended Queenstown hotels are anything but plain.
