Holiday Inn Queenstown Frankton Road opens expanding IHG’s presence in New Zealand’s adventure capital
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), together with franchise partnersUSAR Queenstown Limited, has opened its first Holiday Inn hotel in Queenstown following the conversion of the former Goldridge Resort.
The hotel is a convenient choice for families looking to keep active on holiday, with easy access to The Remarkables and Coronet Peak ski fields. The fully-furnished deck with BBQ facilities and tennis court are ideal for families wanting to spend quality time together. Families can also take advantage of the Holiday Inn signature ‘Kids Eat & Stay Free’ programme, providing young travellers with all-inclusive meals during their stay, including dishes from the new and improved nutritious Kids Menu developed in partnership with Nutrition Australia.
For business travellers, the hotel is located in the Queenstown CBD, with beautiful views over the Frankton Arm inlet of Lake Wakatipu, making it a convenient choice for guests to experience all this great city has to offer during their stay.
The current multi-million dollar refurbishment will see an upgrade to all 75 rooms with potential for an additional 50 rooms to be added in 2017. Other amenities include a fully-furnished deck with BBQ facilities; a bar and restaurant with lake and mountain views; tennis courts and a sauna.

At Holiday Inn, we want to help our guests to do more of what they love when they travel, and that’s just what this hotel will enable. We are enormously proud to offer guests a comfortable and convenient stay during their time in one of New Zealand’s most-loved destinations.”
