Our Commitment

The Rees Hotel Queenstown is committed to policies and practices that support the goals of a triple-bottom-line approach to the environment, people/social protection, and economy.

The Rees Hotel has implemented a company-wide stewardship program to pursue and develop operational practices that minimise waste and promote positive interaction between the operations of our business and the broader community in which we live.

Advice to and from Guests

The compendium we provide to guests in each room and suite contains further advice on how you can assist us in meeting our goals for social and environmental sustainability.

We positively welcome your suggestions on how we can improve the environmental and social sustainability of our operations. Every suggestion will be submitted for consideration by our Sustainability Stewardship Group consisting of our team and board.
