From its modern decor to its relaxing atmosphere, we enjoyed every moment of our stay. We loved absolutely everything. We loved the food, the room, the bed, the view. The staff were very welcoming, with a tour on arrival. Staying here genuinely felt like home which was a great end to our holiday.

Stayed at the Braemar Suite, surprised my partner with it and we were both blown away by the quality, views and outstanding service. The room was flawless, although you expect that for the price we paid for it. No complaints at all. Restaurant was very good too

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in a spa suite and had a meal at the Altitude restaurant onsite which was delightful. The staff couldn't do enough for us and the room was pure luxury. We enjoyed our private outdoor spa overlooking the gorgeous scenery. The bed was very comfortable and the room had a instant gas log... More

My wife's birthday happened to be midweek this year and with our busy lives, this was the perfect place to come and relax. We had a spa suite with outdoor tub, which is a fantastic place to spend the evening, even on a cold winter night. I agree with others that bringing some snacks & a bottle of wine helps... More

This is the absolutely ideal spot to relax and unwind. All of the rooms are suites with amazing views and every amenity. You even have a gas fire in your room to relax in front of. We had an outside spa pool overlooking the great views as well as a double spa bath inside. The bed was luxurious and warm... More

On a clear, sunny but not freezing winter day, we effortlessly completed the 90 minutes scenic drive from Christchurch to Hanmer Springs. Situated across the valley from the town, the Lodge is up on a ledge ensuring great views across to the hills. Following a speedy check-in, we were personally shown to our spacious and tastefully decadent rooms and given... More

A beautiful location. Stayed there 3 times now. Only ever in the Hot Tub suites with the spa on the balcony. $440 for the room is a on the pricy side. Also since it is a bit out of Hanmer if your drinking you only have the resturant to eat in (unless you brought your own food). It is luxurious... More

Braemar Lodge & Spa is a little out of Hanmer Springs but it's worth it for the luxury rooms, the ambience and the views. The rooms are all over 60M2 with King Bed, lounge suite, lounge chairs and table & chairs. The bathroom had a spa bath, double basins, double shower and marble everywhere. The rooms are all very private... More

A treat from my husband, we stayed here just one night taking advantage of the special rates they occasionally advertise. These rooms are spacious with a cosy nook by the gas fire. Huge wall to ceiling windows make the most of the lovely views to Hanmer and open to a small private balcony. Although this facility is high end we... More

Thank you Sharon D for your glowing review of our Lodge and thanks to your husband for arranging this special treat for you. You didn't miss the switch for our underfloor heating - it takes a couple of days for the concrete to heat up and as this was the first really cold snap, we were a little slow in... More
