Bit if a muck up with our booking which flustered the staff member but all sorted in the end. I did think the reception area/office area was a little off putting - A small stable type door looking in to a very untidy and disorganised looking office. The studio room itself was lovely and the cheese platter was great. The...

Adult family of 4, and our first time staying. Very clean and spacious with a well equipped kitchen. Lovely touch having fresh eggs to cook for breakfast. Highly recommend cabin 5 at the end of the row, feels like you have your own Bach in the middle of the country. WiFi could be better, only 2 hours free, for the...

The cottages at Brackenridge are very beautiful and serene. It's got a rustic and cosy feel with a beautiful fireplace. We were warmly welcomed and check in was very easy and quick. We stayed in a 2 bed cottage for a friend's wedding in cold cold September so had a fire going the entire stay! There were 3 couples staying...

We stayed at Brackenridge because we had a voucher for a night in a studio unit (part of a package bought at a charity auction some months prior). We stayed 2 nights and paid cash for one. At $159 per night it is very reasonable. It does represent good value for money which is why I have given it a...

Very happy with the facilities and the challenges we had, the venue was excellent and the staff went to a considerable effort to meet out needs and the team building exercises. We shared a cottage with another team member and the facilities and furniture in each of the cottages were of a very high standard. Although looking old and rural,...

We had a voucher for a studio stay that had expired, but Brackenridge were very happy to accommodate us. Nice comfortable studio room, very well equipped. We didn't use any of the other facilities - spa, gym and pool. Maybe next time, as we are sure to be back.

We visited Martinborough for 2 nights late September. Tried to book on line but could not book the last "bungalow" as there was an error in the price so turned up on spec and they honoured the price. Located half a mile from the centre where there many shops, small supermarkets, butchers and places to eat. The place has 8...

We had a ladies weekend away staying in a 4 bedroom cottage and it was wonderful. The cottage was very well equipped and a lot of attention had gone into the smaller details from leaving the fire all set and ready to be lighted, to the provision of yummy breakfast foods. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the beds and...

A great location. It felt like we had the whole place to ourselves in the middle if the countryside. All the cottages are nicely laid out. Really comfortable and warm. The open fire added to the ambience. Everything we needed for a weekend away. Great staff and facilities/services. Loved the lap pool and hot spa and great range of treatments...
