We stayed in serviced apartments throughout a 10-day New Zealand trip. The Rees was our 2nd favorite. (Our favorite being the quirky Earthstead Villas in Cambridge on the North Island.) View from our Rees lake-side room was breathtaking. One of the primary attractions of Queenstown is the mountain views so why not give yourself the treat of waking up to... More

A great view from your bedroom? Yes. A spacious bedroom and bathroom? Yes. A lift? Yes. A restaurant? Yes. But I still didn't like the Rees. The outside looked like a prison. The corridors looked like prison corridors. The architect's design was bizarre - to say the least. The staff was not particularly friendly. The restaurant was a bit of... More

We stayed for two nights in a 2 bedroom apartment on the second level. We loved the cosy gas fireplace and underfloor heating in the bathroom. As other reviewers have commented, the communal entry door can be annoying in regards to noise. We solved this problem by leaving it ajar and the people in the neighbouring room seemed happy to...

A great place to stay, attentive staff, excellent dining. True 5 star service and great views of the lake and the Remarkables. The architecture is interesting and the facilities are in excellent condition as it is fairly new.

We stayed 4 nights in a 2 bedroom lakeview apartment and as the other reviews state, the view is spectacular. The apartment was huge, clean, modern and had everything you could think of. The service was also top notch. Well worth the price given the size. luxury and location.

We have stayed in several hotels in Queenstown and consider this to be one of the best. The hotel is situated overlooking the lake and the layout is such that most rooms have a lake view. The room was nicely appointed with quality custom furnishings and had a comfortable warm feel. The room was modern and spotlessly clean. The hotel... More
