Scout tips

  • There are no views from the rooms (most face other buildings).
  • Rooms can get a bit of noise from the Queenstown party crowd.


The Spire is the type of place where an ultra modern, ultra hip skier will feel right at home. It’s perfect for anyone whose preferred choice of après footwear is stilettos over snow boots.

Thanks to a recent change in ownership there's been a significant reduction in the price. Fortunately nothing but the price has changed - for a much more reasonable rate you still get the same designer rooms and plenty of inclusions, such as a daily breakfast and evening cocktail bar. After checking in at the hotel’s small lobby (complete with a cute library area), you’ll be free to settle into your designer digs.

The rooms themselves are modern and spacious, with many designer pieces of furniture. And the bathrooms are simply divine, with bath tubs big enough for two.

Meanwhile, the highly attentive staff will quietly cater to your every need – in fact, housekeeping should be renamed the ‘secret service’ due to their uncanny ability to restore order to your room, twice daily, without you ever noticing.

Sadly the only thing missing from The Spire is a view. Some rooms do offer glimpses of mountaintops rising up behind the town’s buildings (including a church rooftop – hence the hotel’s name). But considering the fact that the hotel rooms are so nicely decorated, the lack of outside views shouldn’t pose much of a problem.

Downstairs there’s the No. 5 Restaurant and Bar, which is open from 4:30pm until late. There are no other facilities on-site, however guests do get complimentary access to an offsite gym. 

Who should stay here

This hotel is for people who like to keep up with the trends, and who are more comfortable in a designer Eames chair than a country-style sofa.
