We stayed at The Rees apartments for four days in July and thoroughly enjoyed our stay (apart from our meal at the restaurant). The apartments are tastefully decorated to the highest standards and were kitted out with everything you could possible need. We particularly loved having a washing machine and dryer and the living flame fire was lovely on a Winter's evening. The concierge (British) was very helpful and assisted us with activities, the check in and check out very efficient. The shuttle bus was a nice to have option, but the stroll down the riverside to the centre of Queenstown wasn't a problem. The only downside was the hotel's restaurant which was absolutely dreadful. The service was pathetic and the food awful. Having pre-booked our table, we were shown a seat in a tiny, atmosphere less room and given water, we had to ask (some 20 minutes later) for a 'proper' drink, another 20 minutes later we asked to order. After another 20 minutes we were given an amuse bouche from the Chef which was just plopped down on the table. I called the waiter back to ask what it was, and was told it was a deep fried pigs ear- not great for a vegetarian. When I told him this, he simply giggled and walked away leaving it in front of me. The next two courses followed the same pattern. The food was over salted and over priced. We left prior to the desert arriving. If you want a good meal, go into town to the Botswana Butchery!
