QUEENSTOWN, New Zealand - Hilton Queenstown has opened the doors to a suite of stunning residences; just in time for the summer holiday period.

Hilton Lakeside Residences are 42 one and two bedroom hotel residences with apartment style facilities. The elegant, open-plan spaces have a versatile design catering to the needs of both leisure and corporate visitors.

The residences offer the independence and flexibility of self-contained accommodation, with the style and services of Hilton Queenstown.

Andrew Nisbet, general manager, Hilton Queenstown, said "Hilton Lakeside Residences are stunning rooms that will attract discerning guests who seek greater freedom.

The residences complement the existing Hilton Queenstown facilities beautifully and allow us to offer even more options to visitors of Kawarau Village.

I am thrilled that we are able to release these to the market in time for Christmas, and look forward to welcoming our first residence holiday makers this December."

The residence's incredible location, positioned right on the lakefront, facing north for longer sunshine hours, is maximised by a generous sun-drenched balcony or terrace from each residence, furnished with comfortable outdoor furniture. Most residences have panoramic views overlooking Lake Wakatipu.

Guests can unwind in a separate living room, bathed in natural light from the floor to ceiling windows. The elegant décor takes inspiration from Hilton Queenstown's lakefront position and the alpine character of the resort.

A classic lounge suite provides guests with a welcoming sense of home and the gas feature fire place adds instant ambience and warmth. Living room facilities include a large flat screen television, i-pod dock and DVD and CD player. Some residences have an additional television in the master bedroom.

The stylish, fully-equipped kitchen includes a full size fridge-freezer, microwave and oven and most include a dishwasher. Guests can entertain at the dining room table, enjoying a beautiful meal prepared in their own kitchen, or delivered from in-room dining or one of the several restaurants onsite.

The designer bathroom includes modern laundry facilities and many offer a separate bath. The 24 Two Bedroom Deluxe Lakeview Residences feature a second bathroom.

The residence wing is accessible from the main Hilton Queenstown and offers its own fitness suite and direct access to covered car parking.

The new residences are perfectly suited to executive retreats, corporate groups, sports teams, and leisure travellers especially targeted at the family, golf and ski markets.

Hilton Lakeside Residences increase Hilton Queenstown's total inventory to 220 rooms, and further cements the hotel's position as being one of the leading leisure resorts in New Zealand.

The residences are available from 14 December 2012; visit Queenstown.hilton.com for more information and to view special opening rates.
