Summertime Caution

Beautiful location, though in the hottest part of summer without air conditioning it was uncomfortable.

Best place in Queenstown just out of town

Love this place staff always great and helpful.. coffee good ! Room are great always get a two bedroom lake view ... level 6 is I think the best .. It’s about a $15 buck can into town but that’s easy and they also have a free ride into town every 1 hour so you can do that ... view is amazing.. it’s that place to stay .. not cheap but it is what it is for Queenstown.. enjoy

Lake view hotel room

Unfortunately my first experience of the hotel was being greeted by a very sick Receptionist who coughed and sniffed whilst checking us in. She also didn’t provide any instructions on how to find our room, which proved a challenge in this labyrinth of a hotel. Aside from that, the views were great and rooms nice, albeit on the small side. Note that you have to walk 20mins or get the hourly shuttle bus to get into central Queenstown.

So luxurious!

We had a great stay in our 2bed apartment. So luxurious!! All rooms face the lake so you are guaranteed an amazing view. The facilities are great and staff are always around and super helpful. We didn't even realize when we booked that the Rees offer a complementary shuttle into downtown Queenstown (5min drive) but it was great, we used it every day and saved so much in taxi fares which are quite expensive in Queenstown ($25 from the airport to the hotel, again a 5min drive) we will be back!

Great Views

Pros: Decor - comfortable - upmarket - new - very clean - latest appliances
Cons: Restaurant was aimed at a Very upmarket clientele - definitely not a family friendly menu and in room dining also very expensive - no other options
Location: No nearby activities available - need to travel to Q'town or Frankton for options - shuttle to Q'town from hotel but 25-$30 cab ride to Frankton
Cleaners were a little noisy - builders were also noisy - booked into motel for R&R after six days travelling south island in motor home with 2 x 17 yr old daughters - long sleep-ins were difficult
