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.

We stayed her with our two young children, upon arrival found that we had been upgraded from a 2 room villa to the 4 bed, 3 bath chalet which had 280degree views. It was pure luxury and we had such a fantastic stay. We ate dinner and breakfast in the cafe and we also indulged in a massage at the... More

Having just recently stayed at this top of the line resort, whilst skiing at Mt Hutt, only a stones throw drive south (45 mins) you are captivated by awe inspiring mountainous views and extreme comfort villas. Welcome to Terrace Downs, more than a great golf resort, an oasis in such scenic surroundings that captures your attention constantly. My sons and... More

We stopped at Terrace Downs Resort hoping for a quiet drink with amazing views. We got the quiet drink and the amazing views...quiet surprised us because it was Saturday afternoon and the weather had been fantastic so we would have thought the golf course would have been full. Unfortunately the price of the drinks left a wee bit of a... More

Was looking forward to the trip to Terrace Downs Resort, as we had heard so much about it! So disappointed it did not meet any of our expectations. The rooms were NOT clean - the carpets desperately needed a good vacuum, the bathroom a good dust and the spider webs removed from the walls/ceilings. The bed had a big depression... More

After riding our Harkey-Davidson for a good part of the day we decided with the guidance of our friends that we should do a total random stop and this is were we came. Just the ride off the main road then up the long drive drive was the start of an awesome night. The main lodge was fabulous, the views... More

This was a business trip and I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to stay at this awesome location. The villas are contemporary with everything you need, stunning views and great facilities. The restaurant was excellent with some fantastic meals on the menu. Unfortunately didn't get to play a round but I think I might just be back... More

We stayed here for only one night in January. The resort is superbly maintained and has a real air of class about it. This stems from the fantastic mountain backdrop and the top quality golf course. The villas are some of the best that we've seen. They had huge rooms, a great kitchen, fantastic views and spa baths. We got... More
