Perfect, peaceful place to honeymoon

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 7 Mar 2023
We stayed here for our March honeymoon in Queenstown, and we are so grateful we choose the Rees after doing a lot of research!

The location was perfect. It's exactly ten minutes from downtown Queenstown and ten minutes from the airport right off the main road. The location on the cliffs of Lake Wakatipu give you one of the best views in all of New Zealand of both the lake AND the Remarkables mountain range. We loved being able to enjoy the view from our room, the breakfast/dinner dining room, and the lobby wine bar from sunrise to sunset!

The medium size of the hotel gives it a quieter, intimate vibe with all of the perks/amenities of a large chain. The staff cares here, and it shows with the spotless daily room service and the impeccable breakfast buffet. At night, the dining room transforms to a world-class, five-star restaurant... definitely make a booking to get one of the tables near the window! If a casual meal is more your style, try one of the small bites at the wine bar in the lobby... so good, and so cozy, and the sommelier Jessika is the best.

Another perk to the location is that it's far enough away from Queenstown (10 mins) that you avoid the horrible traffic/tourist insanity of downtown. The hotel offers both a free shuttle service and free parking for guests brave enough to drive in Queenstown, and we were happy to discover that our helicopter tour (Glacier Southern) also picks up from the hotel.

The hotel also knows its international guests well: there's complimentary washer/dryer self-laundry services for world travelers running low on clean clothes!

Overall: this hotel mixes convenience with world class service. They know you are here for great views, great food while on the go... the excellent location and amentities help you explore all that Queenstown has to offer.

Beautiful property on the water with remarkable Mountain View’s. The entire staff was extremely friendly and willing to assist. Located 10 minutes from downtown Queenstown and 15 minutes from the airport. Our room was spacious, sparkling clean and several amenities including washer and dryer. Special shout out to Lauren for her assistance.

A spacious well appointed room with a balcony and amazing views.
Easy parking and access to QT for all the amenities on offer.

The best value for money from the four places that we stayed in QT by far.

Thank you for all who served and made our stay exceptional.

Room tip: Seek rooms within the main complex with direct access by lift and if you can get a lake view better off

After arriving it became clear that it is all about the view in Queenstown and we had a fantastic, breath taking ultra-clear view across the sound from the room, the Restaurant True South and the lobby. Sadly due to an incoming flight cancellation, we only spent one night here, but it was truly memorable. Of note, and not taking away from staying here, is though that the airport is down the road and hence all aircraft are noticeable in all properties along the end of the lake. Other than that it was very quiet and out of the more touristy areas of busy Queenstown. We would recommend and definitely stay again - for longer.

Room tip: Make sure you have a reservation for the restaurant.

This suited us very well. it is siutated about 1.5 km outside Queenstown but you can walk along the Frankton trail by the lake to the town rather than head down the road. The views are fabulous and the rooms extremely well appointed. We were upgraded to a one-bedroom apartment which had a very well equipped kitche (including washing machine and tumble dryer), a lovely sitting room and sepatate bedroom. The blacony extended outside the bedroom and lounge with an additional dining table and chairs. The garage is between the rooms and reception (reached via a lift) which seems bizarre but works extremely well. We ate in the restaurant one night (The South Dining Room) which was excellent with a very extensive wine list. This is a fabulous alternative to a branded city centre hotel.

Best stay ever. We stayed here for 4 nights in this stunning apartment with the most incredible view to the lake. Service is flawless, you have access to the lake on a private jetty, quality of the food and wine is superb and the staff efficient is incredible.
