The Spire Hotel in Queenstown has proved itself to be top of the list from the bottom of the world by being named Oceania and Australasia's best luxury boutique hotel at a gala dinner held on October 24 for the 2015 World Luxury Hotel Awards. 

Each year the awards are voted on by hotel guests from around the world, meeting strict criteria on all levels of service, location and amenity against hotels both multi-national and boutique.

Nestled in the heart of Church Lane, the winning The Spire Hotel offers premium accommodation with a focus on comfort and attention to detail. Each of its 10 suites is crafted with spacious balconies, designer furniture, roaring gas fires, large comfortable beds and stunning finishes including deep spa bath ensuites. Despite its alpine surroundings, its feeling is distinctly inner city New York.

Hotel owner Andrew Cox says he is thrilled that his team can celebrate the service improvements they have employed since his Imperium Group took over ownership in 2014.

"The staff have worked to appeal to discerning travellers looking for expert advice, as well as hosting the best in couples retreats, group stays and conferences," Mr Cox said.
