Great accommodation will make or break any holiday, especially when you're traveling with teenagers. So with this in mind there are three very important words, 'know what you want!'
With two teenagers, one being a 15 year old girl who must wears a minimum of 9 outfits per day, we have endless washing so l need a washing machine/dryer.
Teenage brothers and sisters don't want to be too close to each other at any given time, so a hotel room with two double beds is out of the question. We need space! Last but not least, I love waking up to a beautiful view, it reminds me that l'm actually on holiday.
The Rees Hotel ticked all my boxes and more, it literally felt like a home away from home, without all the cleaning...winning!
From the moment we stepped into our incredible two bedroom apartment overlooking the stunning Remarkable Mountains and Lake Wakatipu, l knew we'd made a good call!
How The Rees Hotel did it for me: heated bathroom floors, outstanding views from massive windows, gas fire place, laundry, two bedrooms (one with a super comfy king, the other with two singles) and best of all the room was serviced every day! I'm not talking just making the beds, lm talking cleaning the kitchen and shining the bathrooms too, that is heaven right there that any mother will appreciate!
The Rees Hotel as a little bit out of town, which was actually something l came to appreciate. After a long day 'shredding the slopes' (as the boys said, not me) it was nice to come back and have some peace and quiet. It was also awesome that The Rees run a free shuttle bus to and from the town centre every hour, that meant a little bit of vino with dinner was well and truly on the menu.
Queenstown has a lot of accommodation and the choice is almost endless, but one place that absolutely gets my vote is The Rees! Would we come back? Definitely yes! Would we recommend? Without question!
Do yourself a favour if you're visiting Queenstown check it out, you won't be disappointed! Have you ever stayed in Queenstown? If so where did you stay and what did you think?
