Beautiful views from our lake front room. Modern, well equipped units. Lots of parking. Great mini-bar. The staff are great, so friendly and helpful. Hired the hotel’s bicycles to ride around lakefront, definitely recommend this. The Rees was excellent value for money. We will definitely stay here again.

We first stayed at The Rees in August 2016 and were so impressed that we decided to return. This visit was just as impressive as the first one. Service levels are what you can expect from the very best hotels. I admit that I haven't stayed in many overseas 5-star hotels in the past, but I'm sure The Rees would be at the same level of service as some of the best. The room was very clean and serviced daily. Small details, like the little chocolate on the pillow, shows you this is an upmarket hotel. The service in the restaurant was at the same level. We had breakfast in the restaurant every morning of our stay, and the staff treated us like old friends. There's also lots of parking for customers in their own under-cover carpark. Then there's the convenience of the shuttle into town. I left my car at the hotel and simply took the shuttle into town. With parking always a problem in Queenstown, this service adds huge value! When I return to Queenstown, it would take a LOT of convincing for me to consider another place. Yes, it's not cheap, but in my opinion it's worth every cent.

Enjoyed staying at The Rees and would stay again. Would recommend Lakeview room. We were upgraded to executive Lakeview which was very nice. All staff were friendly and helpful and everything felt clean which we really valued in Covid-19 situation. All in all a very pleasant stay.

We enjoyed the beautiful lake views from the moment we walked in the door. This place is build for the views. Great staff and service. Easy to find on the main road. About a 30 min flat walk to the main shops and restaurants.
