We stayed at the Rees for our honeymoon. Absolutely beautiful place. Everything was immaculate, great friendly and professional staff. Restaurant was excellent with great views of the lake and mountains. Our room had the same view. They also have a shuttle into Queenstown and back every hour. Definitely made our stay a joy. Thank you again. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Organising and facilitating a workshop is not without its challenges but when it comes to a venue, the Events team at The Rees make it a pleasurable and stressfree experience for all involved. In the planning, all my queries were responded to promptly and comprehensivel; when COVID " intervened", the team were flexible with re-arrangements and on the day, I was welcomed by various members of staff, the room set up was as specified, last minute requests were accommodated, service was attentive and the workshop participants were impressed by the quality and range of catering. The jaw dropping views over the lake plus convenience of on site parking added a " cherry on the top". I thoroughly recommend The Rees and its team !

I recently had the opportunity to stay at The Rees while taking a WSET 3 wine course being hosted on site. Mark, Fiona and the rest of the team were absolutely fantastic! The Rees knows and understands the essence of hospitality. Very courteous and thoughtful. The view from the lobby and lounge is absolutely stunning! Yes, the Remarkables are in sight almost every corner you round, but the design of this space frames the lake and mountains so perfectly - a real WOW factor on arrival. We stayed in a 2-bdrm Lakeview Apt, very clean, comfortable, convenient and spacious. The balcony was a nice setting for coffee in the morning, and wine by night! We dined out most nights but will return to have dinner at True South in the future. We did enjoy the lunch menu, particularly the truffle fries and the soup! Thank you to The Rees for a perfect stay, Morgan

We stayed as a small group for a birthday weekend in a 3 bedroom apartment with a lovely big balcony and stunning views across the lake to the Remarkables. We booked a late check-out so we could enjoy the morning, chilling on the balcony, watching the jetboats cruise by and soaking up the ambience. The staff were very accommodating with all our requests and the shuttle to town a great bonus. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Our stay was exceptional and exceeded expectations. From Shane meeting us at the jetty with umbrellas and towels to dry off after getting soaked on the jet boat transfer to the hotel- while our bags were taken directly from the airport and placed into our rooms; to the amazing welcome at reception thank you Heidi and Ariana; being personally shown to our rooms; Jimmy on concierge who provided helpful information and for whom, nothing was ever too much trouble; Mu and Eugene on breakfast who were so attentive; the amazing meal we enjoyed in the evening at the True South Dining Room; the spacious room with amazing views; spa bath with views to the mountains and the relaxing salts to add to the bath. It's the little details that count and you certainly took care of the details. We will be back!
