Heartland Hotel Queenstown, Queenstown, New Zealand

by Gaycation Magazine

Heartland Hotel Queensland Entrance

In Queenstown, one of New Zealand’s most visited towns, you can enjoy year-round attractions and adrenalin-packed adventure activities. This beautiful resort town sits on the edge of Lake Wakatipu, at the foot of the Southern Alps and attracts thrill-seekers, romantics, families, young travellers, wine-lovers, and anyone looking for an unforgettable getaway. So named because it grew on a site ‘fit for Queen Victoria’, the town sits regally on the shore of Lake Wakatipu among dramatic ranges.

The lake and mountain landscape make it suited to all kinds of adventures. In the winter it’s the perfect base for skiing and snow sports and all year there’s bungy jumping—including the sixty metre freefall of the Shotover Canyon Swing—jet boating, horse trekking and river rafting. In order to recover from the adventure, Queenstown offers all the indulgences including spa treatments, boutique shopping and excellent dining pleasures.

Head out of Queenstown and the dramatic  Central Otago landscape unfolds around you. If you’re a Lord of the Rings fan you’ll recognize many of the locations of Middle-earth here. Half an hour from Queenstown, Arrowtown’s gold-mining history is alive and in everyday use. Visit the Lakes District Museum, one of New Zealand’s best small museums. At the northern tip of Lake Wakatipu, you can take a 4WD track out of Glenorchy and you’re at the start of some of New Zealand’s great hiking trails.

Hotel Lobby

Heartland Hotel Queenstown will charm you with its distinctive design and friendly service. Close to all the action of this bustling resort town, you’ll also love this Queenstown hotel’s elevated position that provides spectacular views over Lake Wakatipu and the mountains. There’s something especially cosy and welcoming about A-Line style chalets in the hills, looking out on snow-capped mountains. The hotel is perched just above the town centre—an excellent vantage point where you can feel ‘tucked away’ and enjoy magnificent views from around this iconic Queenstown hotel, yet you are only a few minutes walk to the town centre. With eighty-one guest rooms, including five family rooms, Heartland Hotel Queenstown provides all you need for a comfortable rest at the end of another action-packed Queenstown day. You can enjoy comfortable, well appointed rooms and the  Lobby Bar, with a large open fire in winter.
