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.

We travelled an hour and a half to Terrace Downs for lunch. Table service from the waiter and waitress was good when we first arrived and we were... More

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

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
