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

Four of us stayed for two nights in cold August weather in one of the chalets in the grounds of this resort - our daughter, 5-year-old grandson, and the two of us. The chalet had two bedrooms, one with a double bed, one with two singles, and a spacious living room with a good-sized kitchen and dining area. There were... More

We got married at Brackenridge on 1st July 2014. Cathie and the staff make you feel like you are family and nothing is too much trouble, no matter how big or small we felt our requests were leading up to the wedding, they made us feel like it was an honour to do it for us. This was a gay... More

My mother booked me and six girlfriends in to spend my 40th birthday as a surprise. We spent most of the day on Friday at the spa; the staff were fabulous and very accommodating, not to mention entertaining. Mum had booked a two bedroom cottage and a four bedroom cottage; the cottages were really spacious and each one had a... More

We last visited in 2010. The cottages are well appointed with great facilities, friendly staff and very comfortable. It's located around 7 mins drive to Martinborough so a bit of a walk for dinner if you don't want to drive. But thoroughly recommended. We also visited the Spa...staff were lovely and the treatments were very good. Would definitely return.

Stayed for one night with the husband to extend our Martinborough trip by an extra day - we loved Brackenridge, rooms, heated floors, spa and the fireplace was fantastic! We will definitely be back and in the cottages to stay with our pooch next time!

Stayed 1 night in studio and really enjoyed my stay. Modern unit in very nice countryside setting. Didn't use other facilities as didn't have time during short stay but the indoor pool did look nice and inviting. Nothing to complain about during my stay wouldn't hesitate in recommending this place to everyone.

My partner and I stayed in a two bedroom cottage and it was perfect. Id go back in a second. The cottage was spacious, the beds were comfortably - loved the featherdown duvet. Our favourite was the fireplace with unlimited firewood which warmed the place up. A very romantic place to visit.
