I had my wedding here and i would recommend anyone getting married do the same. The staff were more than happy to help with anything - and i was a bit of a bridezilla!! The location is great and having a day spa and pool on site was wonderful.

The facilities were good in the cottage but needs more heating options. We stayed in June on a very cold night - there is an open fire & one econoheat panel heater. The cottage is open plan & on the night we stayed even with the fire banked right up & the panel heater on it was still uncomfortably cold.... More

I booked a 2 night weekend package which included dinner and transport to/from Tirohana Estate and a spa voucher which turned out to be very good value. I requested a studio with fire place and bath which was allocated to us - the room itself was spacious and comfortable and the fireplace was great! We booked 2 hot stone massages... More

Lovely place to go for a girls weekend. Really enjoyed the quiet, countryside surroundings, nice and cozy lounge with fire, breakfast provided, and spa treatments. Short 10 minute walk into the town =) HIghly recommended

We stayed at Brackenridge as part of a yearly AGM with our car club. We shared a 4 bedroom (3 bathroom) cottage with 3 other couples and we couldn't fault the place. They provide everything you need for you to make your own breakfasts, which is great, as theres no time to stick too. You can also have a massage... More

We have stayed at Brackenridge twice now and will definitely return. Great value for money with all the amenities you need, pool, jacuzzi, spa treatments etc and located amongst Martinborough's vineyards and farms - very peaceful. Very dog friendly which is great, ample space to run around. We stayed in a two-bed cottage which was spacious and well equipped with... More

Stayed in the studio unit. Not as good as the cottages but there was only two of us so couldn't justify that expense. The spa treatment was great and the pool handy for a bit of lap swimming. A little far from town if you want to drink in the village but overall a nice quiet couple of days.

The two bedroom cottage was well equipped, spacious with a relaxing view of farm paddocks. Very quiet, well kept and we got a great deal from Wotif.com. Hope to come again soon.

We stayed two nights in one of the two bedroom cottages. They are brilliant, spacious and well presented with private garden, and great amenities. The whole place is well maintained and attractive. The first night was amazing, peaceful and quiet, but the second night they were hosting a wedding party in the main building which we had not been told... More

We stayed in one of the studio rooms. We checked in early which was no problem. The set up of the room is really cosy with a lot of though gone into the little things to make your stay personal. The rooms are spacious and tidy and have their own little patio. We loved our stay here and would definately... More
