They will be built on top of the existing Remarkables Rooms.
The new rooms will increase the total number of rooms available to 23.The expansion represents an investment of $2 million.
The hotel will temporarily close from 23 April to allow construction work to proceed without any risk of guest disruption.
After the majority of the building work has been completed, the hotel will partially re-open to guests in early July for guests staying in the Gondola rooms, on the other side of the hotel. The added rooms, which will be known at Remarkables Junior Suites, are expected to open late August and the existing ‘Remarkables’ rooms will re-open at the same time.
To coincide with this expansion one of the Patterson Brothers (owners) – Ken – will relocate to Queenstown to become more actively involved in managing both the Queenstown Park Boutique Hotel and the family’s other Queenstown business, Touchdown Car Rentals.
Current Queenstown Park Boutique Hotel general manager, Karen Henry will depart after five and a half years at the hotel.
