This resort hotel gave us a very homey feel. Waking up each morning with views of snow-capped mountains is priceless. Kitchen is well equipped with clean utensils. Just head on to supermarkets in Methven, grab a bottle of olive oil (the room has salt and pepper) and some perishables and you're good to go with some basic meals. Everything is... More

We made a quick decision to come to Canterbury for a skiing trip as a result of a recent storm guaranteeing lots of the white stuff. Our expectations of this resort were high based on their own promises and on reviews mostly on this site. Suffice it to say we weren't disappointed! Our first pleasant surprise was that we were...

We booked a one bedroom apartment while skiing at Mt Hutt. The room was very spacious, with large lounge, full kitchen and great sized bedroom and ensuite. It was great that there were laundry facilities also. This resort is great if you want to get away from it all, as it is literally in the middle of nowhere! It's about... More

The 2 bedroom villa I stayed in was modern and very well equipped including complimentary wi-fi, a washer/dryer and fully equipped kitchen. The resort is located in a beautiful location with stunning views. The service was also very good. The resort offers a number of optional outdoor activities though a number of them are off-site. The only thing that should... More

My wife and I spent a weekend here as part of her birthday celebration. Although golfing is the centerpiece attraction, we chose to simply relax. We stayed in one of the one-bedroom villas and the view was awesome. We dined each night in the restaurant and found the food to be very nice. Our only concern was that the spa... More

Terrace downs is only an hour from the airport, very handy if you are here for a few days or if you live in Christchurch - it's a great getaway. We headed down there with another couple on Friday night, they had the gas fire on in the room and the air conditioners on - a great idea for a... More

Our experience of this resort was to dine at the restaurant only. We enjoyed the best meal of our month long holiday - steak the most tender and flavorsome and delicious desserts. The service was also excellent. Lovely open fire.

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
