The Ree's was overall a pleasant hotel to stay in. The only negative feedback we have was that bed was way too soft for our liking and the shower design was terrible impractical, the bathroom floor always ended up flooded with water after every shower.

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
