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

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
