A Swedish tourist got a free night's accommodation when she passed out in the toilets of a central Queenstown bar last night.

The 19-year-old woman woke at 7am to find she had been locked inside the Skybar in Camp St after passing out earlier in the night.

She used her mobile phone to call police for help.

Senior constable Chris Blackford, of Queenstown, said the bar manager was happy to assist police in letting the woman out of the bar.
