I'll start with an 'unfortunately'; we only had 1 night here. This was the best hotel during our 4+ week trip to the NZ, Ausralia & Fiji. Check in for our group was swift and efficient, with a welcome chat from the owner. Everything about the place speaks of quality. I hope my photographs show this. The public rooms are... More

Absolute luxury, fantastic service. We had one of the spa and spa bath units, which was large and romantic. Perfect for a weekend away. Service was excellent and personal, and things like the in room gas fire was just lovely. The bathroom has to be seen to be believed - very very nice. The beauty spa was also excellent -... More

We thank NZ_snowboarder for their 5 star review. and I'm obviously sorry they didn't find our food flavorsome enough. Our chef couple are now back from their annual vacation and I'm sure you will find their new winter menu will offer the best of local produce and flavours. More

Excellent staff and very friendly. Rooms were very spacious and the bed was very comfy and large. We had plans already made in Hanmer for dinner so we did not eat at the restaurant although we will make plans to eat there next time we stay. The lodge is about 5-10 mins drive to Hanmer. The spa's in the room... More

Very enjoyable stay for our second visit to Braemar Lodge. Beautiful location not too faraway from Christchurch and a very short distance by car to the thermal pool of Hamner Spring. For us is another way of relaxing in peaceful place not too far from home. Great people and service. (must say we are tye low key type people who... More

We have stayed here twice in the Medway rooms in the last 3 years. There is no doubt that it is a lovely place to stay. The rooms are enormous, a spa bath in a big bathroom, an outdoor spa on the verandah, and a relaxing couch next to the cosy gas fire. Really inviting and very luxurious. Our first... More

I was so excited to stay here however I was so let down. I didn't feel like the staff even wanted to know you. The food we ate was terrible the meat was over cooked. The best thing was the spa bath. I felt that for a room of this price it needs the luxury feel. The pillows were very... More
