Nice weather, perfect buffet: a must to do in Queenstown


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

What a way to end our 3 weeks in this part of the world with a dinner in the sky. We were blessed with a double rainbow thanks to a light rain while we stood on the viewing deck. Wow! Dinner had lots of options and choices to satisfy most dinners but the view of Queenstown is exceptional. Worth the extra cost. It takes quite a hike to get to the gondola from our hotel Crown Plaza.

Making early reservations definite plus! Gondola ride is scenic. The view from the platform is amazing. Buffet food is good, not excellent. Loads of interesting options. Do a couple of Luge rides afterwards...very fun! Very polite staff throughout.

There was more to see here than we had originally expected. We enjoyed the magnificent views from the gondola and had lunch here. We were lucky enough to get a window seat. There was plenty of food make sure you try the chocolate mousse and the staff were welcoming and courteous. It was definitely worth the visit and we were pleased we decided to lunch here. A must do!

We were lucky with the weather and the views were great. The food was pretty good too. Definitely worth paying $20. To get a do did seat. You also have a drink included so not too bad a cost but makes it extra special

Absolutely terrifying and fabulous at the same time. The staff was extremely professional, calm, helpful and and considerate. The photos were only $45 New Zealand and we love the free t-shirt!
