The Rees CEO Mark Rose shares his must-do activities for travellers to Queenstown this season.

A local’s guide to Queenstown in winter

What do you love most about Queenstown?

I love the variety of outdoor activities available in all seasons in some of the most beautiful terrain in the world, the extraordinary produce, wine and dining available here and that despite the small size of the town and its delightful remoteness it is connected so easily to the rest of the world.

What’s a must-do activity for first time visitors to Queenstown?

I would say to take a walk / climb, helicopter tour or drive to one of the surrounding peaks to fully take in and appreciate the scenic beauty that the town, the lake and surrounding area offers.

What are you most excited about this winter at The Rees Hotel Queenstown?

Being able to welcome Australians back to the hotel as well as New Zealanders from around the country. But also getting closer to being able to operate in top gear again and showcasing Queenstown with the wonderful creative winter packages and experiences we can offer to visitors.

What makes The Rees unique?

Several important features: we are an individual property, not part of a chain which makes our offering uniquely our own style.

We are also very much about showcasing a sense of place – a true taste of Southland and New Zealand to our guests.

Our long-standing reputation for excellence, service and exceeding our guests expectations which comes down to the way we have been able to keep, support and develop our people – they are the backbone of what we do. It shows time and again in reviews and awards and feedback that our guests recognise and appreciate that extra level of service.

Finally we offer not only world-class accommodation across the hotel, apartments and residences (so something for everyone), but our dining, cellar and in fact all our facilities and experiences are of a similar quality – so guests can relax and understand that we want their whole experience of staying with us to be at that superlative level.

Queenstown is one of New Zealand's most-visited destinations - and its most photographed. ISTOCK

Why is The Rees a perfect offering for Australian travellers?

Australians are one of our most important markets and repeat visitors – they like the variety of accommodation we offer and our location (and that we are only 3 hours away) but again more importantly, our relaxed but efficient service and the unique experience of New Zealand that we give them.
