The Spire Hotel recognised in global awards

The Spire Hotel has been nominated once more for the  World Luxury Hotel Awards across a number of categories as New Zealand’s Best; Luxury Boutique Hotel, Luxury Romantic Hotel, Luxury Small Hotel.

We are honoured to be recognised again as a leading operator and grateful for the support of the industry in nominating The Spire again in 2018.

Award recognition for The Spire Hotel is a regular occurrence over the years via the World  Luxury Hotel Awards as well as the World Travel Awards.  Alongside these, The Spire is consistently acknowledged as New Zealand’s leading boutique urban property.

Known for providing a modern yet classic haven from the hustle and bustle of central Queenstown, No5 Church Lane our cosy cocktail bar and restaurant has recently revamped it’s menu to offer a focus on light, fresh local ingredients.  A more vegetarian friendly selection  was a regular request to the hotel team and the kitchen have certainly delivered!

Keeping it local on the Wine front, the move is afoot to focus on the local wine region of Central Otago and highlight the wonderful range we have right at our doorstep.  We will have more to come on that this season so keep checking back for details.

The Spire Hotel is joined in the awards field by our sister property Eichardt’s Private Hotel  also no stranger to international recognition!

Luxury accommodation awards are a great way of maintaining our standards and we are thrilled to be part of the process again.
