The Spire Hotel is located in the centre of the city, a 15-20 minute drive to Queenstown International Airport (ZQN) in nearby Frankton. Guests arriving by plane are invited to utilise our transportation services and choose from a transfer via our fleet of private luxury vehicles or an incredible experience aboard the Pacific Jemm yacht. This option is ideal for guests arriving early or departing late as it includes a cruise around Lake Wakatipu and vehicle transfer to or from the hotel or airport.
