Villa 15 was a great studio unit with king size bed, kitchen and shower and washing machine etc, modern, quiet. Use of the lap pool and spa pool was brilliant after a long day out in the sun in Wanaka or Queenstown

Recently stayed at Benbrae Resort with my friend. I thought the rooms were great and spacious and kitchenette had everything you needed. Location was brilliant and was nice to be away from the busy wanaka during the holiday break . Thanks Jamie and Lee-Anne

Lovely high quality accomodation in a stunning location. Great relaxing atmosphere, and friendly staff. You definitely feel on holiday. The pizzas were probably the nicest pizzas I have had in a very long time 😄

Thank you to the wonderful hosts Lee-Anne & Jamie for making our stay at Benbrae so comfortable. The location is lovely close to Queenstown and Wanaka but far enough away for the peace and quiet of the Cardrona Valley. The villa was clean, warm, tidy and just what we needed to relax and had everything that you could need. We... More

Firstly, grumpy owners after 8 hours of driving and a last minute booking wasn't the best way to kick off the stay. The rooms look great, its new but its the care and consideration that is lacking here. The room was cold when we arrived. All of the cutlery and dishes were still in the dishwasher from the previous guests.... More

I left Queenstown terribly disappointed with the horde of large hordes of tourists in big buses, as well as the young backpackers all over the places seating at the beach and water front walls screaming and being loud all nigh till 3-4 am (meters away from my deluxe hotel). The checking-in and-out of loud foreign Asian travelers, including at my... More

Great service, comfortable beds, well proportioned rooms, very reasonably priced. There's not much else to say, they are good and simple rooms. The hostess is accommodating and generally this is nice, good quality, basic accommodation.

We recently stayed in the Cardrona Valley and chose Benbrae as our accommodation, the reason we chose Benbrae is because it was highly recommended by friends, It is a beautiful spot, the individual lodges are superb, (luxury) at very reasonable prices. There is a very well tended pool and hot tub which was great and the staff were very friendly... More
