We recently visited Queenstown in New Zealand for a 'father and son' week of adrenalin fueled activities including skiing, paintball, bungy jumping and more.
We stayed at 'The Rees' a 2 minute drive from Queenstown central. We took the serviced apartment option and got 2 bedrooms (one queen size and one king size bed), a living room, dining table, laundry, kitchen with all the kit, lounge area with TV, iPod music speakers and a fireplace.
The apartment was spacious, very clean (cleaned every day), warm and dry, important after a day on the icy cold slopes (and being shot by your child in competitive paintball situations).
Bathrooms were immaculate, the water pressure in the shower superb and the hot water seemingly endless. No bath in our apartment but each of the 2 bathrooms had a towel heater rack - nice.
High quality bathrobes were provided, clean towels are available every day if needed and the beds were made each afternoon. The bed linen was crisp, clean and white and there were plenty of blankets available.
The front counter staff were helpful and courteous, although the breakfast room team were not quite up to the mark. We did not eat dinner at the restaurant but did try the breakfast options a few times. The buffet was ok, the hot ordered breakfast patchy - good one day, average the next. So after a couple of days we just ate out in Queenstown - see my review of Captains.
There is a nice bar with large fireplace you can get a late night drink and look out across the lake to the snow covered mountains... really nice way to finish off the day.
Overall, a really great serviced apartment option.
