Emergency services are at the scene of a hotel fire in Queenstown.
A New Zealand Fire Service communications spokeswoman confirmed firefighters were attending a fire, but no further details were immediately available.
A witness said flames were coming out of the roof of the kitchen and lobby area of the hotel, and the place was a "bloody mess".
The hotel was the Discovery Sherwood Hotel, on Frankton Rd, the witness said.
