My wife and I stayed at the Millbrook for 4 nights. I had seen the website and being a 5 star resort I expected the place to be pretty amazing but it was so much better than what I expected. When you arrive at the resort it has that real wow factor, so peaceful and beautiful and the most amazing views of the mountains and golf courses.
The door lock to our room in the Village Inn was not working so we were given a nice bottle of Pinot Noir and upgraded to the Village Suite. We were pretty stoked with our Village Inn room and weren't too worried about the lock but the Village Suite was amazing and we really appreciated the offer. The staff were super friendly and nothing was ever too much for them.
The gym was very good and caters for everyone doing whether it be cardio or lifting weights. The hot pools outside, which are surrounded by tussock bushes were amazing and we used them every night after a day of exploring Central Otago.
We had one meal at the Hole in One Bar and Cafe, which is one of four restaurants Millbrook. I had the Fiordland Pizza and without doubt its the best I have ever tried. The pizza contained Lamb, Venison and Wild Boar sausage.
In summary what the Millbrook has to offer you simply can't get anywhere else and it was worth every cent we paid. We will definitely stay there again when we visit Queenstown.
