This is the first time I use the trip advisor review. My husband and I stayed at Millbrook for 7 nights last week. We were there for Ski/Sightseeing. Arrowtown is 20 min away drive from Town Center – Queenstown, about 15 min away from Airport, but I have to say it’s the best place to stay!
The Check-in service was real fast and staff was friendly and professional. Even though it’s far from town center, the resort offered free shuttle bus service to and from hotel every hour. The scenic drive from Queenstown to the resort was spectacular, total relaxation and lots of photo opportunities.
Back in the hotel room, we stayed at Village Inn. Before I have decided to choose Millbrook I have read other reviews from people who stayed in Queenstown Center, a majority of them complained how the room was small , bathroom was small and no room for luggage space, also for ski equipment etc etc.. That’s why I have chosen to stay at Millbrook even it was a bit far away.
I am quite picky when it comes to accommodation. I normally try to stay in 5 stars world known hotel whenever I travel especially for more than a few days. At first, I didn’t have much expectation as Millbrook as it is not the world known chain like Westin or Conrad etc etc and I have also pick the basic accommodation there…At village Inn, we stayed upstairs with a balcony and view of snowy mountain and a lake. The room was big, heated floor , super king size bed, cottage like style of furnishing, big bathroom, amenities all provided and from my perspective, the most important thing to me is “CLEAN” the towels, bed sheet everything was clean!! House keeping also excellent!
The staff was very helpful, always gave us direction to places and also organised day tour for us.
The only thing we didn’t get to do was to try out their spa, as it was very busy, so I would advise to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
If I have name one bad thing about Millbrook is that their carpark is so far away from the villa especially the ones who stayed far away like us, difficult especially we have to carried skis in and out each day.
Overall, staying at Millbrook get the benefit away from the traffic the busy life and able to enjoy and relax.
