We stayed one night through a Grab One Special Beautiful large room, amazing bathroom, and really enjoyed our own private hot tub, at night and then again in the morning before we departed. Had dinner in the restaurant, food was really nice, but thought the service was a bit hit and miss. Great breakfast , overall a really great experience.... More

We were recommended to Braemar Lodge and Spa by our Son and Daughter in Law whilst staying with them in Rolleston for an extended holiday. In NZ from the UK. They arranged for us to stay for one night. We were so impressed that we stayed for a second night. If our scheduled had allowed we would have stayed longer.... More

We spent Christmas at Braemar in one of the most comfortable rooms of anywhere we've stayed. So spacious, great view, and the spa on our patio was well used by us. The service was great and the antipasto platter the best we've had anywhere in the world. The only drawbacks are the unsealed approach road and we would have liked... More

We stayed in the Medway Spa Suite & all I can say is WOW this is by far my favourite hotel so far. The room was huge and the bathroom was amazing! The staff were super friendly. The room we had also had our own private spa outside which just topped it off & the view really is amazing, I... More

Had my nieces wedding at the Braemar Lodge in Hanmer early in December. The wedding itself was just amazing and the location and weather were just as great but the friendly vibe that should come with a country lodge was missing (even a friendly smile on arrival wasn't there) The rooms at the Braemar are just beautiful and spacious and...

I was super impressed with the Select Braemar Lodge & Spa! The only let down was the service provided by a young asian woman, as we checked in she failed to mention that we had been given a free room upgrade! Not a big deal of course, but we would have been really excited with that news and it was... More

Thank you Rochelle for your positive comments on your recent stay and I'm sorry you felt we let you / ourselves down on a couple of points. I so glad you enjoyed the upgrade to one of our super 80m2 Medway Spa Suites - it certainly makes a difference on a longer stay such as yours. We do have three... More

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...
