I spent a week conducting seminars at Brackenridge. The location is very convenient for Wellington. The setting is just beautiful. The people could not be nicer. When I checked in, the receptionist said she knew I would be busy that week so, if I had any laundry to be done, she would get one of their employees to do it... More

This is a lovely venue and the accommodation is very nice with nice touches which make it very welcoming. We felt the prices were too high raising our expectations for a little more than we got. Breakfast was included but it was food in the fridge so very basic. The one comment we both made was an expectation of nice... More

We, a family of four, decided to go on a last minute day/night trip to Martinborough, on something of an impulse in the school holidays. First plus: we were offered a generous last-minute discount over the phone without asking for one! Second plus: each cottage is immaculate and very welcoming with heaters as well as a pre-stocked wood fire, which... More

I found this accommodation after they advertised a special on the day spa they have onsite online. I booked a two bedroom cottage. We were delighted with our little standalone cottage, amongst the features it had two bathrooms and an open woodfire. A continental breakfast is provided daily, eggs, toast, spreads, cereal coffee beans, and juice. There is a day... More

My husband and I got married here this weekend and we could not praise this venue enough. From the first time we met Cathie at Brackenridge we knew we were in good hands. Weddings and functions is what Brackenridge does all the time and they certainly know what they were doing. If you want a foolproof wedding then I would... More

My family and I returned to Brackenridge as we had enjoyed it so much on our first stay last year. The tranquil surroundings, well-designed and equipped villas meant each member of the family could enjoy a break away. The villas are spacious and everything has been thought of to make the stay enjoyable. A short drive from Martinborough, we were... More

We originally booked for one night but we saw online that we could add an extra night for $10 which we did. We had a single room studio with a fireplace which was lovely. The studio was quiet, very clean and cosy. There was a lovely view over the fields. The fire place was ready to light with a supply... More

My daughter had her wedding at Brackenridge on Valentines Day 2015. Everything was perfect. Gorgeous villas, lovely setting, fantastic wedding venue, brilliant staff, I can't recommend this place enough. I will return for a winter get away. This is a beautiful place to stay, for just a couples retreat, or a family. Certainly one of the nicest wedding venues I... More

We tripped off to Brackenbridge early November for a two day work team building session. Brakenbridge was a short train and car ride away from Wellington city. The estate was populated by studio apartments and chalets which surrounded the main lodge. I loved the spacious rooms and the comfortable sofas that populated the main dining- lounge and foyer. The fireplaces... More

We stayed at Brackenridge for one night in mid-October 2014. The staff were absolutely wonderful, full of good chat and recommendations for places to go and things to do, despite it being late in the afternoon by the time we checked in. The studio room we stayed in was absolutely beautiful and charming, and the surrounds were absolutely idyllic. We... More
