Hilton Queenstown recently opened the doors to a suite of new lakeside apartments.

Hilton Lakeside Residences, which have increased the hotel’s inventory to 220 rooms, are 42 one- and two-bedroom suites with apartment-style facilities.

The residences offer the independence and flexibility of self-contained accommodation, with the style and services of Hilton Queenstown.

“Hilton Lakeside Residences are stunning rooms that will attract discerning guests who seek greater freedom,” said Hilton Queenstown’s General Manager, Andrew Nisbet.

“The residences complement the existing Hilton Queenstown facilities beautifully and allow us to offer even more options to visitors of Kawarau Village.”

Most residences have panoramic views overlooking Lake Wakatipu and guests can unwind in a separate living room, bathed in natural light from the floor to ceiling windows.

The elegant décor takes inspiration from Hilton Queenstown’s lakefront position and the alpine character of the resort.

A classic lounge suite provides guests with a welcoming sense of home and the gas feature fire place adds instant ambience and warmth. Living room facilities include a large flat screen television, iPod dock and DVD and CD player. Some residences have an additional television in the master bedroom.

The stylish, fully-equipped kitchen includes a full size fridge-freezer, microwave and oven and most include a dishwasher. Guests can entertain at the dining room table, enjoying a meal prepared in their own kitchen, or delivered from in-room dining or one of the several restaurants onsite.
