Queenstown’s newest hotel has opened its doors to guests, providing much-needed accommodation for visitors to the town, in time for the start of the Queenstown Winter Festival.
Ramada Hotel and Suites Queenstown Remarkables Park located in the Town Centre is the newest addition to Wyndham Hotel Group’s rapidly expanding portfolio and marks the seventh hotel for the company in New Zealand.
Ramada Queenstown Remarkables Park is a franchise agreement with New Zealand developer Robert Neil’s Safari Group (NZ) Limited and is managed by BT Group.
“The introduction of the world’s largest hotel company here in Queenstown is a huge milestone for the town and we look forward to providing guests with the quality accommodation and exceptional service associated with the Ramada brand,” said Benjamin Trotter, Managing Director of BT Group.
The four-star hotel has added another 54 rooms to the popular tourist town and has breathtaking views of the surrounding Remarkables Mountains and Coronet Peak. It is the first new hotel to open in Queenstown in the last five years.
President and Managing Director Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and Pacific Rim Barry Robinson said: “Ramada Queenstown Remarkables Park could not come at a better time considering the growing need for more hotel rooms in Queenstown, and we look forward to providing another accommodation option for visitors to one of New Zealand’s best ski and summer destinations.”
Guests can choose between a mix of well-appointed studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, all with ensuite bathrooms, full kitchens and laundry facilities. The hotel features a restaurant/café, 24-hour gym, free Wi-Fi, ski gear storage room, complimentary parking, LCD TV with SKY channels and a ground floor retail precinct.
It is within close proximity to Queenstown’s major attractions and is located adjacent to the planned Remarkable Park’s multimillion dollar convention centre, making it ideal for both leisure and business travellers.
The Queenstown Winter Festival, held between 24 June and 3 July, attracts a crowd of about 45,000 each year and Ramada Queenstown Remarkables Park is set to be close to full capacity during the 10-day event.
