My wife and I stayed for a long weekend and chose Millbrook for its location and resort style accommodation. We had heard that it was an exceptional place to stay and were not disappointed. On arrival we were greeted by a lovely Russian girl at reception who although a trainee at the time was very helpful and polite. The porters were excellent and took us on a golf cart to our villa suite, taking our bags for us as you would expect. The unexpected was the fact that our porter told us we could call reception and have a golf cart pick us up for breakfast or take advantage of the free shuttle service into and back from Queenstown or Arrowtown at ANYTIME!
The accommodation itself was very well done with high quality fittings, linen etc and kept up to a well maintained standard, as well as being very clean. Lovely spacious room in our Villa Suite, which comprised of a large bathroom with double bath, his and her basins and separate shower. The bed was enormous super king. The living room had a gas fireplace which created a lovely ambience and a flat screen TV cleverly hidden behind a painting on gas cylinder hinges. The kitchenette was of a good size and had everything need to be self contained; it could also be closed off when not in use.
We ate breakfast in the Clubhouse each morning and were greeted by friendly and accommodating staff. The clubhouse itself is stunning with views to match. The food was fairly standard fare in terms of cooked breakfast, i.e. bacon, sausages, eggs etc, but always tasty. There was a good selection of pastries, and cereals and fruit also. The Banana and berry smoothie is a must!
The mill house restaurant is a must if you decide to dine on premises. It is a fairly high quality affair for onsite dining, with great staff and of course good wine list also.
Overall we enjoyed Millbrook very much and would love to go back during summer, as I am sure it is even more spectacular then!
