Positive Reviews

Magnificent lakeside view

Some of the rooms have amazing views of the lake; others face different directions or have partially obstructed views. When booking the hotel, request a room on the floors one through five with a lake view, guests recommend.

It's centrally located in Queenstown

Shops and cafes in Queenstown are within a quick, scenic walk from the hotel. Also, the hotel places you within adventure sports like ski resorts, water sports and golf courses.

Nice, personal touches

Guests say the service is helpful and warm, especially among people who stayed in suites. The hotel has nice, personal touches like previous guests being surprised by staff bringing fresh bread in a breadmaker to their rooms.

Negative Reviews

They charge for Wi-Fi access

While most customers enjoyed their stay at Peppers Beacon, a common question emerged amongst visitors: Why do they charge for Wi-Fi? Many called the fee unacceptable and exorbitant, and pointed out that even backpackers have free Wi-Fi. Even those who paid for it complained that the Internet was slow.

Lots of walking to get to higher floors

To get to the higher floors of the hotel, guests say that you have to first take a lift, then walk across a large courtyard before you get into another lift. Guests reported that having to walk outdoors just to get to your room can get cold and tiring.

Hotel needs more soundproofing

Rowdy hotel neighbors can disrupt sleep. The hotel needs better sound proofing as some guests complained that they could hear everything their next-door neighbors were doing.
