Had lunch in the restaurant before a round of golf. Great menu choice for lunch and excellent quality food and really good service. Stunning views with great seating inside and out. A real country lodge feel. Golf course was not quite up to he usual standard mainly due to drought, some of the greens suffering and lakes all very low... More

Although primarily a resort supporting a golf course, there are other activities available within a few minutes drive. Very good walking options with great scenery. Staff pleasant, helpful and prompt, especially arranging our next stay later this year. Suites along side 18th hole are spacious with all necessary supplies. An extremely dry summer, which followed a moderate winter meant that... More

Went as a business Christmas overnighter Highlights and pluses were....We really enjoyed the day spa couples massage and the rooms were really nice. The golfing was excellent....:) however we were unable to do some of the activities due to weather (rafting) and there was no exchangeable option apart from golf to do. The restaurant was nice enough and some of... More

We finished off a trip to New Zealand with two nights at Terrace Downs mainly so my husband could play golf. Our apartment was fabulous, a five minute walk from the clubhouse. It was well equipped with a full kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The balcony was amazing, although we had poor weather when we were there so the... More

There is no doubt this is a place one ends up only after researching accommodation offers in the area. The Resort is also home to a golf course and Club and it shows in everything that surrounds you, or is included in the room (magazines...). We stayed in a one bedroom appartment overlooking the lake and the course which, whem... More

Terrace Downs is primarily a golfing destination & resort catering probably for International markets. And skiing during the Winter. Room rates are certainly North of $350 per night. I have played golf and eaten here on numerous occasions and really like the location. The bar has a fantastic outside area looking out over the steep lake-ridden 10th. It can get... More

We stayed here with another couple. Fantastic unit very clean and tidy. We walked from our unit to the restaurant for dinner and found on the way back that there was no lighting on the track which made it very dangerous.

This is an amazing place, with views from every window. It was peaceful and tranquil but plenty to do....golf tennis walks a spa great food and service. We recommend this to everyone. The staff made sure we were well looked after, which added to the enjoyment. It is my idea of a resort.
