Transport and gear hire is easily arranged and the closest ski field, Coronet Peak, is only 20 minutes from the hotel.

Milford Sound

Deep within Fiordland National Park lies Milford Sound, one of New Zealand’s top natural attractions. Milford Sound is shrouded in magic; a place where fiord cliffs rise vertically from dark waters, mountain peaks scrape the sky and waterfalls cascade from as high as 1000 metres. The Spire offers all-inclusive services to Milford Sound, including helicopter trips departing Queenstown. This is regarded as the ultimate way to experience this incredible terrain, promising enhanced visibility and unrivalled safety.
