“Calm setting, and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We had the pleasure of staying 4 nights in a hotel appartment at The Rees in November/December 2012.
We enjoyed the quiet setting, the nicely decorated appartment with own furnished balcony overlooking the lake and mountains.
The service from the front desk and the concierges was excellent.
We will go back to the Rees for our next trip to Queenstown/New Zealand.
Good parking facilities.

We stayed at the Rees Hotel for two nights just this past week. The property is amazing and the staff are more than helpful and well informed and the Concierge is available to recommend and book any activity you desire. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment overlooking the lake. he rooms are furnished beautifully and the kitchenette and laundry fitted out with modern, sleek appliances. The view from our balcony was stunning and it was a pleasure to wake up in such peaceful and beautiful surroundings. The Hotel itself is a way out of town but a free shuttle service is available. Only problem with the shuttle is you need to book, so going out or coming home spontaneously can be an issue. A water taxi is also provided but at a cost of $15.00 return per head - this can be an expensive option when there are a number of people in your travelling party. All in all, this property certainly lives up the to "Luxury" in it's name!

Room Tip: When booking, definitely ask for a lake view apartment.

Fantastic apartments with a breathtaking view of the snow capped mountains in the winter. Modern and clean luxury apartments with a fabulous fireplace and heated towel rails in the bathrooms.
A little bit further out of town but worth the experience.

Stayed at The Rees during our honeymoon in Nov. 2012. Upon check in we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment with an amazing view of the lake. The staff was always helpful and courteous, the room was extremely clean and had everything one could ever need including a full kitchen and a washer/dryer, did I mention the view? The only downside is that you have to drive to town as it would be a pretty long walk and the parking in Queenstown is a nightmare. We stayed in 5 different hotels during our honeymoon trip to NZ and the Rees was the only one that gave us a complimentary honeymoon amenity. Would definitely stay there again!

We had a fabulous stay at the Rees, facilities and staff are great. A little out of town, but the free shuttle compensates. We had a one bedroom lake view, and the view alone worth the stay. It's a real benefit to have your own kitchen and laundry. Probably one of the cleanest places we have stayed.

I booked a 2 bed 2 bathroom apt over new year. Later I checked to see if we had a lake view which it didn't so upgraded for an extra $80 per night. On arrival we find the apt only had 1 bathroom. We were offered for an extra $200 per night an apt 2 bed 2 bath. After speaking with the manager he gave us an upgrade complimentary.
Nice apartment, staff very helpful.
Complimentary shuttle to town as hotel is a little out of town which is good during the hectic period at Xmas and NY.

Room Tip: Lake view a must.

We cannot speak highly enough about the quality and overall wonderful experience we recently enjoyed at The Rees Hotel. A magnificent position on the shores of Lake Wakipitu, the ambience and comfort of the apartment was second to none. We experienced outstanding service from very friendly staff members and would most definitely recommend The Rees to any traveller to Queenstown.

Room Tip: Lakeview rooms are outstanding.
