Here's how that worked out for us in New Zealand on our recent trip.
Firstly Christchurch. (They do have a good excuse though.)
Dunedin was next on our itinerary. (The red building with the smoke stack is the brewery)
In Queenstown, we checked in to the Scenic Suites. Not so much....
|You can see the lake!|
|From the balcony you could see the top of the cable car|
... and back to Christchurch; at a different hotel.
Maybe we'll do better next time we travel?
