Thank you so much for your message.
My stay at the Rees was absolutely perfect. What a wonderful hotel in a stunning location.
The restaurant dinner was also out of this world - the deer milk creme brulee is unforgettable.
Thank you to everyone involved for making my stay so wonderful.
Dear Mark and Team!
Thank you so much for two fabulous nights at The Rees. It was wonderful to have a first hand experience of both your dining and accommodation after many long years. The meal was outstanding – such an innovative chef and I loved his interaction with us all. Clearly very passionate and well deserved accolades he’s received wining the Australasia award. The accommodation was great too – the rooms are looking spic and span and it is amazing how well the quality craftsmanship of the woodwork really elevates the apartments. Love the touches of fresh milk in a glass bottle, the amenity treats on arrival and outstanding service from the staff at every turn. Thanks Alex – all ticks from my side!
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and here’s to a much brighter 2021 for us all!

You beat me to it, I was going to email you this morning and say thank you so much for a wonderful stay at the Rees!
What a beautiful hotel. Both nights were great, but my room on the Friday night was even more stunning (7112) - I loved it so much I ended up just getting room service, relaxing and enjoying the views, and that fantastic spa bath. The staff were all exceptional too.
I had such a special time on the Hollyford, it's absolutely magical and I feel truly privileged to have experienced it.
Thanks again for having me. Have a great Christmas break (if you manage to get one!)
Just touching base to see how you are going and to wish you a Merry Christmas and definitely a better 2021!! We are pleased to see that Jacinta is thinking of opening up to Australia and would hope to include NZ on our travels next year.
Every one of our friends still talks about the amazing 60th I had – I don’t know how we can ever top that!!!!!!
Hopefully you may remember who we are and the wonderful effort you went to for us.
Keep safe and keep your borders open – job well done NZ

We had a wonderful stay at The Rees and will definitely recommend it to others.
I was wondering if a pair of glasses was found in the room we stayed in. We seemed to have missed placed them and thought we might have left them in the room. We stayed in room 6102. Has anything been handed in?
Thanks for your help.
Hi Fiona and Roman
Jeremy and I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to both of us for helping us make our wedding day so very special. We couldn't have done it without all your help and advice over the last few months.
Roman - thanks for being the one to introduce us to this vision of having our wedding here at The Rees. We loved how welcome you made us feel when talking to us. And the fact that Shantel's your cousin and you also knew my BFF Renate made it feel like there was a very special connection for me with this place from the start. Sorry we didn't really see you around much during the week, but I hope to someday run into you at some other happy occasion again.
Fiona - it truly felt like nothing was impossible for us with the wedding while we were in your hands. We couldn't have asked for a more lovely, cheerful and warm helper - and there were so many times you went above and beyond the call of duty. We also do apologise if a couple of the guests got a bit obnoxious after a few wines on the night though...I could see you were very patient with them. Personally I would love to one day be as physically strong as you and be able to lift heavy boxes of wine like they were nothing...!
All in all, we had a wonderful time and would be happy to recommend The Rees as a great wedding (and other event) venue in future.
All our thanks

P/S: We also just wanted to pass on that so many of our guests complimented the food very highly. They particularly loved the scallop dish, saying the flavours were perfect. The mains and dessert also received high praise. And of course, all the wait staff were lovely.
Thank for your email. We enjoyed our stay and stunning location. On our last day after our morning walk we sat on your jetty. Are you allowed to serve food and drinks there as I thought it might be something you could offer your guests at a price
Please pass on our thanks to Lauren for her hospitality and service. I have stayed at a number of properties throughout New Zealand over the past 12 months, for both business and pleasure. Her service was definitely the best I have received over this time and possibly the best I have every received.
This type of service needs to be celebrated and highlighted as the main reason why will will most probably look to stay with The Rees again when we next return to Queenstown.
Many thanks again for a memorable experience to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
Kyle McElwain 11/20
Just like to thank the staff at The Rees for making our stay very pleasant enjoyed every moment. On our arrival we were impressed with front of house staff. The room we had came up to our expectations, it was great to have a private balcony with a view. Our dinner and breakfast were amazing and the service from staff was excellent and of a high standard. Would like to make a special mention of Kathrine and Bea, who were so friendly and accommodating.
Should we come to Queenstown again, would definitely stay and The Rees.
Would recommend The Rees without hesitation.
Karen & Colin Tomlin 11/20
We have nothing but praise for our experience at The Rees. After abandoning our original hotel after only one night, we popped in to The Rees to see
what was on offer. From the very start, Fenna took over. She took the time to show us several options, offered us free breakfasts and made sure our stay would be a peaceful and relaxing one, after our previous hotel. She had the knack of making us feel we were her only guests - obviously not the case! We also found out over the course of our stay, this is a team dynamic prevalent throughout the entire staff. Not easy to achieve!!
The next day, Fenna was responsible for organising complementary drinks at our vineyard lunch through a friend. Above and beyond!
We travel a lot and widely, and have family in Queenstown so have experienced a wide range of hotels. Through Fenna and the team we have never felt more looked after.
It is people on the team like her, that will not only ensure we are assured repeat clients, but also Rees advocates to our associates and friends.
Hi Rees team, Mine and Jenny’s recent trip to Queenstown and our stay at your hotel was very nice. Your whole team made us feel very special and important for the time we spent with you. For that I thank you very much.
Regards Charles Law. 10/20
We stayed recently. I have never been inspired to email a review about a hotel before. Our experience at the Rees was really truly lovely. Our Executive two bedroom two bathroom apartment was beautiful and spacious with such wide views it had us all saying “wow” when
we arrived. But it was the genuinely friendly employees at the Rees that I loved the most.
Everyone took time to say hello. Jimmy was a standout. His personal attention to details made our stay truly memorable. I can’t wait to come back.

Hi Fiona and Roman!
A very big THANK YOU to you both and the wider Rees Team for all of your work behind the scenes to accommodate our group booking last week. We absolutely loved coming back to The Rees, it really does feel like coming home!
Thanks for sending that invoice through – we have sent it onto accounts to be paid so please do let me know if there are any delays.
Again, please pass on my thanks to the wider team (Lauren, Alex etc) for their outstanding service and hospitality.
Hopefully we see you all again sooner rather than later!
We had a lovely stay thank you! Had really hoped to have the complimentary room upgrade but our room was still lovely and clean.
I would like to say how lovely and friendly your staff were! They were absolutely faultless!!!
In particular Austin, Jimmi and Danielle and the house keeping staff.
The shuttle service is great.
The only negatives were the bed itself wasn’t the most comfortable and not good at limiting partner disturbance, if one rolled over the whole bed felt like it was rocking. We stayed in room 307-2 and every morning at around 5 or 6 am there would be a series of beeping that would last 5-10 minutes and woke me. The first morning I got up to try and find the source but wasn’t able to – I didn’t try the remaining three mornings as Daryll managed to sleep
through it and me hunting around was likely to wake him so I let him sleep. It sounded as though it was perhaps in the foyer area but I’m not sure.
Thanks again for a lovely stay, you really do have exceptional, helpful staff.
Casey Walker 10/20
Can I just thank you all for a wonderful weekend in Queenstown!
Dave and I had the most enjoyable stay - totally blown over by the quality of service received from the Rees staff, and an amazing dinner with you both.
The wines were just delicious and a wonderful match with the food menu. And of course, your company was most enjoyable - it’s lovely to be around such passionate, driven people.
Thank you all so much again and wish you all the best with your future endeavours. If you’re ever up our way again, please get in touch so we can at least return the favour in some way!
Hope you enjoyed your Sunday on the Earnslaw.
Susie & Dave 10/20
A Fantastic team that you have at the hotel.
Yesterdays lunch was excellent with everything running smoothly. Food & wine match - well what can we say but “Sensational”
The Rees has been the perfect place to kick off "bespokenz first long weekend away.All round Mark I would certainly rate our experience the best that we have enjoyed in New Zealand for many years…world class.

Hi there, just wanted to say thank you again for such a wonderful stay. Our group of 18 couldn’t speak highly enough of the hotel and service that we were provided with during our time in Queenstown. It made for a very memorable and much enjoyed birthday get-together.
The special touches during our stay were hugely appreciated and we will definitely recommend The Rees to family and friends visiting Queenstown in the future.

Great experience with super friendly and professional staff in every step of the process.
Your team could not do enough for us in our short one night unexpected, flight cancelled, stay.
We will spread the word.
It was our first time staying at The Rees and we were impressed. Our room was very nice and clean. All staff we encountered were helpful and friendly.
We will stay again sometime and recommend to friends and family.

Hi team at The Rees, just wanted to say thank you so much for providing such a warm welcome to our family group this weekend. Arriving in Queenstown and seeing the lovely gift of the children’s book, donation, sweets and card in our room really made the start of our trip so special, and we are looking forward a great stay. We are all having a wonderful time so far.
Thank you again
Haley and Grant Coe 9/20
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Rees and would definitely stay with you again. From the moment we arrived to our departure the staff were 100% accommodating, nothing was too much trouble and very friendly. Jimmy, Austin just delightful, to name but a couple.
The dining room staff more than obligation. Our only small hiccup overcome very quickly when we discovered we had twin beds. The whole establishment impeccably clean and an absolute pleasure and treat to experience The Rees hospitality.
Many thanks to you all and keep up the great work.

Hi Fiona and Roman,
it was a pleasure staying at The Rees, we felt very much spoiled and we thank you for your great hospitality.
I will gladly keep your contact handy for possible future events.
Yes we had a pleasant stay.
Only thing in disappointment was the dinner & desert portions sizes at the restaurant were very under whelming,
Im happy to stay again but eat else where.
Chris Dinan 9/20
We had a wonderful stay, thanks.
I dealt with Austin before arriving as we wanted an Executive Lake View One Bedroom Apartment with a bathtub. He was great. We had room 601, which was lovely. The service we received from everyone was terrific. The shuttle service was on time and very
comfortable. And for my birthday, I was grateful for the chocolate. All in all, a great stay.
Please pass on our thanks to all the staff.

Kim Lynch 9/20
We had a fantastic stay at your property, and will certainly return and recommend to our friends. Your shuttle service was a great asset and all the staff were so very helpful.
After leaving to go to Wanaka for a few days we wish we had stayed longer to be honest.
We absolutely loved our stay your staff are extremely accommodating.
Every part of the hotel we went to was extremely clean this would be the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed at and staff that are so helpful.
Sorry I don’t have Facebook or Instagram.
The only negative was the bed once they where together one was slightly higher than the other and mattress where different in softness.
We will definitely be back to stay at The Rees next time we are in Queenstown and will also recommend freinds and family.
Thank you very much for an awesome stay with amazing views.
Janina & Tony Wootton 9/20
Thanks for the lovely room with a bathtub and for the chocolate for my birthday. We’re really enjoying our stay.
Thank you for your email. We absolutely loved our time in Queenstown celebrating my daughter’s birthday. Your facility is beautiful and your staff are friendly and helpful.
There is only one small ‘whinge’ from me – and that is I felt I could have been upgraded to the suite with bath without additional charge, as the hotel was not full. Having said that I appreciate how tough it has been in Queenstown during all the Covid nonsense, so I guess
every little bit helps.
We have sons in Australia counting down the days until they can come home to visit. We will definitely be back to stay with you again in the future ��
Sue Kuiti 9/20
My family and I wanted to say a very big thank you to all the lovely staff at the Rees Hotel.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the hospitality of all the staff to make this a special trip .
We were wowed from the moment we walked into the Hotel and then again when we got to our room and saw the view.
Thank you for the lovely birthday card and sweets, a lovely touch. Everyone was so genuinely friendly and helpful.
I had a lot of special moments over the 5 days and feel this birthday celebration was one of my best yet. Ill especially remember the lovely glass of Pinot Gris recommended to me as I sat reading The Whakatipians, admiring the view.
Wishing you and your staff all the best and hope we get to see you again soon
It was great!
Thanks your team has been great and very helpful especially Lauren. She had given us a guided tour of the place and room set up and tips about the area. We will love to stay again in the future.
I will let you know if we have any friends or family coming down to stay with you.
Your hotel is a lovely venue.
The best thing would absolutely be the person who checked me in and took me to my room.
He was so helpful.
But your ‘star’ staff member is the wonderful young English (blonde) lass who is just the warmest hotel employees I’ve met for some time.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Rees and we look forward to returning

I would particularly like to commend Mu who provided excellent services in your restaurant.
Lisa Jacobs 10/20
Our stay at the Rees Queenstown was fabulous. Your apartment was as I expected it to be.
Location is great and not to mention staff were super friendly and very welcoming.
Your 5 star rating lived up to your name. I will write a trip advisor review as well.
One improvement I would suggest is housekeeping just needs a good overall clean as desks and side table were a little dusty when we arrived.
Concierge service from before we arrived was excellent it was so easy to use hotel concierge service to book activities for our family to do.
Thank you we hope to see you again.
Thanks again to you and the team for another outstanding stay with great service! We really do love coming to The Rees, it feels like we are coming home!
Hope the rest of the stay went well for the team – anything else you need do let me know.
Just a quick note to say our accountant (John Nana) and family who stayed at The Rees recently contacted me to say they thoroughly enjoyed their stay and could not fault The Rees.
Loved the location, complex, attentive and polite staff and the shuttle bus as a bonus. John made special mention of you Roman helping make their special birthday weekend celebration most enjoyable.
Jill Jones 10/20
We really enjoyed our stay at The Rees in Queenstown, the apartment was amazing and the service excellent. Will definitely recommend it to friends

Thanks so much for our wonderful stay at the Rees, everything was just superb.
We already recommended the Rees to some very close friends whom I understand have made
a confirmed booking.
Chris and Victoria Penney with their lovely daughters Lottie and Lauren are staying with you (some dates) between Xmas and New Year I understand.
A welcome bottle of the Rippon Riesling in their room would be a lovely touch much appreciated, thank you

I had friends staying at the Rees last week and felt I had to let you know they had nothing but praise to say.
These friends are quite well travelled and did not know we have an interest in the Rees.
Their comment was...they couldn’t fault the place.So a pat on the back to you and your staff.
Appreciate it’s still difficult times for you all but here’s hoping the worst is behind you all.
