We adored our stay at Brinkley Resort! The hospitality from Paul and his team was second to none. From the very first friendly greeting on arrival, we were made to feel like family at Brinkly! The magnificent apartments with glorious snow capped mountain views were even better than we could have imagined! But I must say, the absolute highlight for... More

We were happy with Brinkley. Easy walk to town, ski bus at door, spa with views to mt Hutt, apartment spacious for our family of 4, restaurant nice. It was not a cheap rate though and it did seem off peak? Thanks for books and game in the unit. Clean, kids had fun with tennis and a the little chip... More

I'm not sure that "resort" is really an appropriate or accurate descriptor for this place. Nice location with some good facilities, but the studio room was disappointing for the price The room was cold (and you knew what time we were arriving). The bed was most uncomfortable No view and not even a picture on the wall The pictures made... More

Hi...we are more than happy with the impression we leave with guests about NZ Hospitality after their stay as most of the 120 + reviews here endorse. Unfortunately not all of the 5000 + guests we host annually post a review but they do return for a reason. What we are not happy about is the factual content of your... More

I don’t write as many reviews as I should and after actually reading a couple of the reviews on here I thought I would try to give an honest and balanced account of my short stay at Brinkley Resort.I try to stay in the town of Methven for a few days every winter to Heli Board in the Back Country....

Stayed in a two bedroom apartment. The apartment was small but had everything we needed. Clean and tidy. Management was very friendly and helpful. The only negative (and it is fairly minor) was that the bed mattresses were very firm, almost too hard, and could do with a pillow topper or something like that. Overall very happy with our stay.

We didn't have the view however our ground floor apartment was well furnished and provided good facilities including a laundry with no coins needed. Good layout and in a good location - walking distance to town/restaurants and good... More

Stayed here as a family for 6 nights during winter. Nice walk into town for dinner. Kids loved the sheep and horses next door. Room was small but adequate. Very handy having a laundry. Internet access was expensive and slow to log on, also only having one access at a time was difficult. Had to purchase toilet paper from the... More
