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...

We booked Braemar Lodge for a 2 night get away... I booked because it was 5 star! However upon arrival we had a quick look around & it felt like a very stuffy "Old Mans Country Club"... Tony Balch summonds us to the check in area & was extremely pretentious. ..My Husband was told that he must wear a collared... More

The adage "you can please some of the people some of the time, etc." really rings true on this occassion. We advertise we are a no smoking Lodge on our web site, in our booking confirmation and in the rooms. We are this because a) our non smoking guests do not wish to go into a room smelling of smoke,...

Had the most amazing weekend in a Spa Suite here - beautiful attention to detail and so many options to make your stay perfection. For example, early check in, late check out, bubbles in the room on arrival, the most amazing food brought to our room and the breakfast was so pretty I had to take a photo of it.... More

The room was outstanding and large but the total package is below par after spending over $750 for the night (including room) We couldnt get a booking for dinner so had to take a 5-30 slot.thinking it would be full but find they can only cater for a few guests at a time????

Thank you Darryn for your comments and I am sorry you felt your experience was below par. We do encourage our guest to book their dining time in advance by mentioning this in our booking confirmation sent to you as everyone wants the 7 and 730pm slots and we book a maximum of 3 tables at these times to ensure...

Stayed here for 2 nights for a wedding, in one of the ground floor rooms with a hot-tub. As one would hope for the price, the room was great, service was high, food was excellent. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Internet access was decent. The hotel arranged a great babysitter for us (Robyn) while we attended the wedding.... More

Thanks Mike for taking the time to write in and I'm glad you enjoyed the wedding and our facilities and service. The bridal couple and everyone I spoke to during and after the wedding felt the same. Regarding your room 3, yes it does look over the garden and has glimpses through the trees of the mountains beyond. We do... More

Something of a surprise to find that Hamner Springs is booked out during weekends in the winter, but we ended up, three of us together, having a spa treatment at Braemar Lodge, who kindly organised for another treatment person to be on hand on a Sunday afternoon. The location is superb, we had the lounge to ourselves with endless tea... More

A friend and I booked here recently for Spa treatments and then we had lunch at the restaurant. While it was nice we agreed that it could have been much better as we felt there wasn't the attention to detail that you should receive at the price that you pay. We had spa treatments that were quite pricey, we didn't... More

Thank you kyekyenz for taking the time to provide feedback on your day spa experience and I/m sorry we didn't make you feel special. Saturday is our busiest day and we always prioritize our in house guests over outside bookings but as this was a special occasion and you wanted simultaneous treatments we brought in an outside spa therapist to...

SENSATIONAL is what my husband and I would say about our recent luxurious 3 night stay at this fabulous peaceful resort. We were very fortunate to be staying in the mega-sized Braemar suite with its own private outdoor spa and beautiful outlook over snowcapped mountains. The huge room was very well appointed with tasteful furnishings including gas fire, and importantly... More

I had arranged our night away for our 16 wedding anniversary without my husband knowing. When we arrived we were very impressed with the room, as I had booked one with private spa on balcony. We have done a lot of traveling and this would have to be one of the best rooms we have stayed in. I had organised... More

The rooms are beautifully appointed with central heating and a gas fire. All rooms have great views out over to the mountains. The dinner menu is excellent and a good wine list. The choice of spirits for predinner drinks was a bit limited.
