Police say a man was taken to hospital after being repeatedly beaten by two assailants in Queenstown yesterday.

Police released CCTV footage of two men in central Queenstown at 3.50am. The pair allegedly repeatedly beat the victim and police want to speak to a witness named "Alex" who helped the victim.

The victim's girlfriend thought the alleged offenders were Australian.

Police called for visitors staying in hotels, motels and hostels to get in touch if they recognise the men, who wore winter jackets and jeans.

One of the men was wearing a green jacket and had dark hair; the other was wearing a dark-coloured jacket and a beanie.

The incident happened on Lake Esplanade.
