Hotel St Moritz Queenstown, a member of the MGallery Collection has enjoyed a truly remarkable year of achievements - the latest an official five-star Qualmark rating.
The five-star classification is the 'cherry on top' of 2008's celebrations: the hotel's tenth birthday, a multi-million dollar refurbishment, its repositioning within the prestigious MGallery collection and being named New Zealand's best hotel at the 2008 New Zealand Tourism Awards, for the fourth time.
Hotel St Moritz's tenth anniversary marked a decade in which General Manager Lynne McVicar and her team have established the hotel as one of Queenstown's great success stories, gaining praise and recognition from guests and industry peers alike.
The hotel is one of only nine in the world to join Accor's prestigious new collection of boutique hotels called MGallery. A new upscale hotel experience, MGallery hotels are selected for being truly unique, embracing individuality and providing a distinctive travel experience.

MGallery has propelled the hotel to an upscale, five-star offering, while retaining the warm alpine-lodge character the hotel is renowned for.
"We are truly delighted that this year of successes and change within the property has resulted in our five-star classification", says McVicar.
