“A splendid stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Stayed for three nights in studio in the village. - Staff very welcoming, accomodation bright , good size , very clean and comfortable, the environment beautiful and relaxing - surrounded by immaculate grounds and golf course ( dont play golf but that didnt matter) superb meal at the Millhouse - as well as lovely breakfast.
Second time stayed at Millbrook and just keeps getting better.

“family friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We have had the pleasure of dining at The Millhouse on our 3 stays at Millbrook. Food and service consistently good. One hiccup (broken ice cream machine) resulted in a personal visit from the chef on our next dinner with complimentary dessert. No complaint was made on our part. Spontaneous gesture from staff. Much appreciated. Paul is an excellent host and ensures a memorable occasion. Winter a special time with the massive fire. Stemware for wine excellent.
The staff, I suspect, are more than happy to cater for children if they have respect for the restaurant. We did threaten our kids with babysitting if they misbehaved. After the first dinner, they knew it was in their interest to toe the line. They still talk about the place. Highly recommended by all.

“Good food & service although .....!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

I wouldn't rave about this quite as much as some of the other commentators. However the food & service were good if not spectacular. Millbrook itself is wonderful & this is a very convenient & delighfully set restaurant, although I wouldn't want to eat here every night of my stay! There are equally good/better/more interetsing restaurants close by in Arrowtown.

Hello Chris C
Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at The Millhouse. Onsite at Millbrook, we have three restaurants to choose from and have recently opened a new Japanese Restaurant and Teppanyaki grill called ‘Kobe Cuisine’. Kobe is the only Teppanyaki restaurant in Queenstown and showcases the popular ‘Wagyu Beef’ – fast becoming very popular with our guests as an alternative dining option. Our team also love to visit the local Arrowtown restaurants… and we believe the portfolio of restaurants in and around the Millbrook/Arrowtown area are among the best in the region. Millbrook operates a complimentary return shuttle service for our guests who want to venture into Arrowtown to enjoy something different.
Kind regards on behalf of the team at Millbrook
