What a magical stay we had at Braemar. A beautiful place to stay and relax in a fabulous setting. We were treated to a heavenly room with outdoor spa, massive bed, great bathroom with double shower, cosy couch and space galore to chill out in. The service was impeccable. The food and wine were incredible. I think we will become... More

The spa suite room was extremely spacious and cosy, equipped with excellent amenities such as the outdoor hot tub, spa tub in the bathroom, fire place, etc etc. Very luxurious and romantic place. The hot tub was really amazing. Almost immediately upon checking in we were in the hot tub. It's not like other tubs where you need to fill... More

This was everything I had hoped it would be and more. We arrived at about 7pm and were in the hot tub by 7.20! Our room was surprisingly spacious with a gas fireplace and a gorgeous bathroom complete with a shower that fires jets of water at you from all angles which I loved! Our room had a lovely outlook...

Amazing property. Bathroom was amazing with double vichy shower and double Spa bath. Gas wood fire in main area. Hot tub on balcony. Bed felt like clouds. Service was amazing both at the restaurant and Spa. The food was made with great produce and was cooked so well, absolutely delicious. Loved our stay!

My husband and I have just had a 3 night stay at this idyllic boutique Lodge which is located about 10 minutes from Hanmer Springs. There was no problem getting an early check in when we arrived earlier than expected. We were greeted by a wonderful reception from the staff, and we realised then that this hotel was a good...

What can I say except fantastic! We stayed here on the night of my husband’s 50th birthday. We were shown around the hotel complex and then shown to our room. I had arranged for bubbles to be in the room and they were. We had a fantastic time in the spa on the deck drinking bubbles and relaxing. The suite... More

A two night stay in deteriorating weather meant we mainly stayed in the extremely comfortable complex for a 'chilled out' break. Very attentive staff, great attention to detail, in a beautiful location just a few minutes from Hanmer Springs. Good to engage in personal interaction with the owner who seemed genuinely interested in our welfare and comfort. All meals were... More

This is a very nice place for the South Island NZ. This is the second time I stayed here I felt it was nice but wouldn't pay 700$ to stay here. My husband decided he wanted to go here for his birthday and had gotten a "grab one" and it including the same type of room I stayed in before... More

Our thanks to RobiUSA for their glowing review of their recent stay and I'm glad the weather was perfect to enjoy our fabulous outdoor balconies and hot tubs. I'm sorry our waitperson in training was not yet up to our usual standard of attentiveness - it was her first day and I'm sure that when you return she will be... More

We recently stayed in this awesome hotel and were totally satisfied with our stay. It felt like a long way down a dirt road and we wondered what it was going to be like and were astounded how beautiful this place is. The staff are very friendly and helpful and our suite was amazing. We loved the fire place and... More

We got a "grab one" deal for this amazing place. This included a huge spa room, with private balcony and outdoor spa, with continental breakfast and bucks fizz included. It was amazing. We booked in for dinner. The waiters were so attentive and their service impeccable. For entree, I chose an unusual dish of ravioli langoustines. It was topped with... More

Thank you Samson and Cleo for your 5 star review and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I am obviously sorry that there was a problem with the bubbler in your spa bath - sometimes the wires get loosened or disconnected due to the vibrations from the jacuzzi jets and we have to lift the whole bath out...
