To make it even easier for Peppers guests, a charge-back facility has been organised with selected venues along with preferred seating wherever possible.

The Queenstown Food Trail map is offered with the Peppers Gourmet Food Trail package which starts from $249 per night in a studio room and includes buffet breakfast for two people. And so the culinary journey can begin on arrival, guests will also enjoy freshly baked bread and a tasting platter featuring the flavours and foods of the Otago region including some of the world’s most desired indulgences; chocolate and cheese.
