Luxury Holidays At Hulbert House

As one of Queenstown’s original residences, Hulbert House is a beautifully restored 19th century villa, offering opulent comfort with contemporary service. Brimming with style, each room is an exciting colour explosion, perfectly complementing the vibrant atmosphere of Queenstown. The delicately restored interior preserves period details - antique furnishings, chandeliers and custom milled carpet - establishing this boutique hotel as the height of Southern Alps luxury. Just moments from the shores of Lake Wakatipu and the extraordinary mountain ranges, the bay windows in every room offer outstanding views of the region.

After a day making the most of all the adventure capital of New Zealand can offer, Hulbert House is a glamorous retreat in which to wind down. The salon and lounge bar offer an elegant place to relax with a good book or a fine Central Otago wine, whilst the patio - with views of the lake and bustling town - offer stunning views of the sun setting over this gorgeous location.
