We especially love Room 6 for its pretty views of the church spire that gives the hotel its name, but king-size beds, luxe linens, stone-clad fireplaces, design classics and large private balconies feature in all suites.
The Spire doesn't have a pool, but nearby Lake Wakatipu beckons.
There's great mountain biking around Queenstown, so bring your cycling gear. A Swiss Army knife could prove handy out in the wilderness, too.
Smoking is permitted on your balcony.
Extra beds are $220 a night; cots are free of charge. Babysitting can be arranged with qualified nannies from NZ$15 an hour.
Welcome. Extra beds are NZD$220, cots are free of charge; can be added to all suites, and qualified nannies can be arranged to babysit for an evening or for your entire stay (from NZ$15 an hour).
Any age, but teens with a wild side will love sports-mad Queenstown.
All rooms are identical. Teens over 16 will require their own room; only one younger child can share an adult room.
Queenstown's many adventure activities and natural pursuits are great for children, with many of them offering options for younger folk. Skiing, swimming and white-water rafting are just three of the draws for kids in and around the area.
Children are allowed in The Spire's restaurant at all times, which can offer a special children's menu, high chairs and packed lunches for kids. Staff are happy to heat up baby food or milk for guests too.
Babysitting is available with a local nanny, from NZ$15 per hour, given two hours' notice.
No need to pack
The hotel can provide all necessary kids and baby kit, from buggies to changing mats, via local company Tots on Tour. It can also put a microwave in your room for children's food needs on request.
Just let the hotel know your requirements in advance, as some of its child-friendly services need to be booked ahead of time or paid for separately.
