There are a few things to take into consideration when planning your accommodation in Queenstown.
Time of year
Queenstown is a popular tourist destination providing year round outdoor entertainment so accommodation gets booked up quick in the peak seasons. It’s a good idea to book well in advance esp. if you are coming during the Christmas holidays or long weekends such as Easter.
What is your accommodation budget?
First you need to figure out what you expect from your trip.
Are you one of those people who would prefer to spend all their money on fun activities and dining out and just have the basics for the night, somewhere to sleep and that’s all?
Or do you want to relax, have room service and be pampered while you enjoy the luxury of your hotel room?
Once you’ve decided what’s important for you to spend your money on you can start looking at your options with your budget in mind.
Will you stay in a hotel or motel?
Generally hotels provide things such as a restaurant and room service. Taking this into consideration they may have smaller rooms than a motel since they have just a bed and a desk. A hotel is a great option if you don’t what to do any cooking in your room and have access to things such as a 24 hour front desk.
A hotel has a shared front entrance and you will have to park your car in a parking lot whereas with the motel you can park your car very near your room and have the privacy when you come and go as you please.
