At home in the adventure capital
Are you one to take the less travelled route, delve a little deeper into your holiday destination and mingle with the Kiwi folks that make New Zealand so unique? Well, then Pinewood Lodge is the perfect accommodation for you. If we say so ourselves.
A village of houses big, small, shared and solo, Pinewood Lodge is your home away from home. Nestled into the mountain side, surrounded by stunning vistas, grand pines and open grassy areas, it’s your hideaway just seven-minutes’ walk from the hustle and bustle.
All of the houses and units have their own lounge, kitchen and bathroom, providing you with everything you need to put your feet up, have a dinner in or brew yourself a cuppa.
Our staff love Queenstown as much as you do and have plenty of local tips and tricks to help you make the most of your visit.
If you’re short on mates, our social areas, friendly staff and like-minded guests make it the perfect place to meet new people. If you’re here to relax or just not really a people-person, our private rooms and homes provide the seclusion you so desire. There’s truly room for everyone at Pinewood Lodge.
As well as being super friendly – but not so much that it’s kind of annoying – our reception is a full booking agency. Helpful staff with local tips and tricks, we’ll give you all the advice you need to have a local experience. We also offer discounts on some activities, so it’s always worth checking in before you check out Queenstown.
Explore by bike:
If you’re pretty good on two wheels or just keen to explore Queenstown by bike, Pinewood Lodge is located just a two-minute ride away from the Queenstown Bike Park. Assuming you’re not an Olympic speed racer, then it’s probably less.
We also have a full fleet of DX, XC and hard tail rental bikes available. If you don’t know what any of that means, we also have some helpful staff to fill you in on the models and trails.
For winter ski bunnies:
Pinewood Lodge is the perfect place to park your ski bum before heading up the mountain. We have two fully-equipped ski and snowboard tuning rooms, as well as a drying room for all your bits and bobs. After a big day on the slopes, our spa pool is also a great way to soothe your aching muscles and/or pride.
Bag and gear storage:
We’ve got safe storage space for all your gear and valuables, including ski storage outside most units, bike storage by The Hub, bag storage at reception and a safe for those extra precious items. Identification tags available on request.
The classic kiwi BBQ:
There’s nothing like standing around a burning grill with a cold brew in hand and a good mate by your side. In fact, some would say it’s a New Zealand rite of passage. We’ve got a shared ‘barbie’ area for groups – that’s BBQ in Kiwi. Each unit also has their own ‘barbie’, for those more intimate gatherings.
Ooo, a spa pool:
After a long day on the bike, slopes or trails, you’ll have earned yourself a soak in our spa. With wonderous views of the Remarkables, it’s a sight for sore eyes and sorer bodies. Open from 12pm to 8.30pm, NZ$10 for thirty minutes. Book with the friendly folks at reception.
We recommend spending as much time away from your phone and computer as possible, but when you need the internet we’ve got you covered. Internet facilities in The Hub and reception include email, web surfing, printing, Skype and wireless internet access. Wireless internet is available throughout the property.
If you’re missing folks back home or organising the next adventure, phones are located in the phone box outside reception and some of the unit’s lounges. E-phone cards can be purchased at the reception.
This is where you’ll find our communal lounge and groups restaurant. It is available for sole use for private functions with prior booking. Our Sky TV and DVD player are perfect for those movie nights in or big games, while our fireplace and indoor outdoor area provide mingling space for all.
Being the adventure capital of New Zealand, we thought we should probably have two laundries. They are both open twenty-four hours and contain automatic washing machines, dryers and irons. Powder and change available at reception.
All private rooms include bed linen and towels. Dorms include bed linen only, but towels can be hired from reception if you’re one of those ‘travel light’ folks.
You’ll be happy to know there is ample free off-street parking for vehicles and trailers. You’re welcome.
