Stayed three nights at the Rees on our first stop in NZ. Relaxed, comfortable and fabulous location - couldn't have asked for more. Didn't have a car so parking wasn't a problem - if you've got a car you may struggle to get a parking space. Staff were helpful and informative

Kia Ora Son_of_Moses Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We are pleased that you found the team amazing and, that the food and service was 11/10 in our True South Dining Room. Our team will be delighted to read your review. The bank charges credit card fees for all credit card transactions. This is a standard practice across hotels in Australasia. This is openly publicised at time of booking with the hotel, in our hotel confirmations and at Point of Sale. Payments with EFTPOS or CASH does not attract any fees. We look forward to being of service in future. Please do not hesitate to contact us direct for any future bookings to ensure you receive our best available rate, best room guaranteed. Ngā mihi nui, Roman Lee-Lo Director of Operations
