Lake View Hotel Room
Stayed 3 nights in March 2023

Beautiful views, wonderful staff, fantastic rooms”

My wife and I spent 3 nights at the Rees recently and loved it. They have a free shuttle hourly into and back from town (a 7-minute trip) if one doesn't want to do the half-hour walk along the lakeside trail. We hired bikes right at the hotel for NZ$30/4hours (or NZ$50 per day). They were adequate but the seats were hard and the front brake on mine vibrated and sounded like an alien ship landing (which turned out to be convenient for letting pedestrians know we were coming!). The breakfast was NZ$32 for the full spread, delicious and bountiful buffet including fresh orange juice, coffee, cereals, etc., in a beautiful dining room overlooking the lake and breathtaking mountains. We also took advantage of room service to enjoy a dinner and a breakfast on our private balcony with awesome views. We enjoyed being outside of town for the quietness and peacefulness of the setting; just know its a bit of a walk or shuttle to shops and dining (other than at the hotel which does have a very nice restaurant). We will definitely stay here again when we return to Queenstown.

Facilities, Views, Location

Our stay at The Rees was excellent. If you are staying in Queenstown outside of skii season and are accustomed to other luxury destinations (and expect or hope Queenstown to be one as well), avoid staying in central Queenstown. It is relatively noisy and filled with hippy riff raff. If you want views, balconies, serenity and 5-star accomodation, go with The Rees. You can always hop on the hotel shuttle or $10 taxi or take a 30 minute walk along the lake into town. Activities: the hotel can organize everything. Ask Nils. Rooms: Booking through agoda or other third party providers may limit your ability to pre-select your room. I would be clear about what you want if you are looking fo something in particular and book diretly with the hotel, e.g., unobstructed views, spa baths, size of balcony, etc. The rooms are all fantastic, but they do come with their own character based on their location in the hotel.

good view, good service, good people

The Rees Hotel & Luxury Apartments is a good hotel, also apartment. The room we booked is villa for 4 people, our lake side view room faced lake wakatipu. It makes us feel relaxed and comfortable. Besides, the size of room is big with open kitchen. It is good for family and friends to gather together easily. We do feel extremely satisfied with staying in this excellent resort. We must tell our friends and family to stay here if they come to queenstown.
