“pure luxury and relaxing place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

Highly recommend this beautiful hotel, great service, the staff are friendly and helpful. The views from the balcony of the lake and surrounding snow covered mountains are spectacular. Worth paying extra for lake view and very private balcony. Have a splurge on the Rees hotel restaurant, fine dining, the food is delicious, very attentive service, great local wines. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: lake view room

We stayed at The Rees during our visit to Queenstown, NZ which was our Honeymoon. The architecture is beautiful and even better is the view from the hotel. The spa in your room is worth every penny spent on the room.
However the hotel staff did not care that we were on our honeymoon, they did not give us any upgrade even when they had rooms available. Nor did they greet us well. I did not even find a box of chocolate or a note or even flowers in our room. Our tour operator had notified them about the same. For the hotel of this level, this was the least amount of hospitality expected from them.
Very Poor Hospitality.. So people if you going there on your honeymoon do not expect any freebies or even greetings from them.

The Rees Hotel is a few minutes outside of town but the rest of the news is all good. The clever architecture gives a lovely view of the lake from rooms, dining areas and the lounge. The service is great and the facilities good. We highly recommend it.

I stayed here when it had recently opened. Loved this apartment style accommodation. The room was very modern, great architecture and design. The room had a gas fireplace, nice views of the river. I definitely would stay here again. Amazing lobby area for a drink. Couldn't fault the place. 15 minute walk to town along the water which was very nice.

We visited New Zealand in Dec 2013 for our honeymoon ... and we deceided to stay in Queenstown for 4 nights and we picked The Rees Hotel & Luxury Apartments.
The rooms were very spacious, beautiful and I think it was worth spending. “Simply the best hotel we have ever stayed in.” I Wish we were still there ...

We stayed The Rees for nine nights for the second part of our honeymoon. The hotel is expensive but well worth the experience. We had a lovely room, very spacious and regularly cleaned and replenished. The view from the room was breathtaking and waking up to this every morning was amazing! Service was top quality, the staff so very friendly and accommodating. In particular Mel the concierge was extremely helpful in advising us on activities and booking them for us. The hotel is located just outside the centre of Queenstown, this means either a beautiful half an hour lake side walk into town or catching one of the hotels handy shuttle buses which drop off and pick up in town regularly. We used this facility often and found it very useful. However, the walk is worth doing, even if it's just once! The Rees was another fantastic and memorable part of our dream honeymoon!

An amazing hotel with great view and awesome apartments and rooms. The wine collection was that I have never seen before. A bit away from the city but runs free shuttle service every hour. Situated on the lake there is no better hotel. MUST STAY!!!!

Room Tip: go for the apartments
