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

Have been here 5 times now and it's my favorite place to stay when in Hanmer Springs New Zealand, if you're visiting Hanmer springs and would like to stay at the best place around I would definitely recommend the Select Braemar lodge

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...

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...
