“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you are looking for a luxury hotel, this is it. Everyone is so nice and accommodating. They really know how to treat a guest right. The rooms were perfectly clean, and the hotel offers a free shuttle into downtown about every hour. Just one piece of advice, if you would like to get a couples massage, make sure you get an invoice ahead of time to prevent any confusion.

Stayed November 2012, traveled as a couple

The Rees hotel s only a few years old and is therefore very modern in its fitout. The rooms are spread over seven levels overlooking the lake, any closer and it would be in the lake!
The staff were fantastic. The hotel is about 5 mins from central Queenstown and a very convenient shuttle bus is run by the hotel on the hour until about 10pm at night.
We had a very good view of the mountains (The Remarkables) across the lake.
Overall an excellent three nights stay.

It was staying in the lap of real luxury , the children loved it .
If u r a family of 4/5 take the rooms on level 7 , they have 3 toilets / 2 storyed / 2 bedrooms .
Jacuzzi was really nice , balcony has best possible view of the lake.
One can't ask for anything better !

We had an amazing experience at the Rees. The hotel room was very well designed. We were upgraded to a one bedroom apartment. We spent 4 days here and it felt like home. Our room was facing the lake and we had a beautiful lake view to wake up to every morning. We loved the fire place in the living room. The breakfast was the best we've had especially the salmon scrambled eggs. The service at breakfast was excellent. There was a lovely girl serving us. The concierge, Doug gave us the best tips for in and around queenstown and was very accommodating to our ever changing minds.

Room Tip: If you stay longer you might get upgraded.

We just love this place. Facilities and service are outstanding. Amazing location with breathtaking lakeside views. The meals in the restaurant are incredible and a true culinary experience using fresh local products. Waitstaff carefully detail the contents of the meal and the associated flavours. Staffers Luba and Hayley are fantastic and so helpful. Concierge are the best that we have ever experienced. Can't wait to come back as it is the perfect holiday destination.

Room Tip: Choose the lakeside rooms on the higher levels (levels 5 and above) for the best views.
