We stayed at Millbrook Resort from 12th October to 21st October 2013 in Villa 110. It is a great resort, the staff are really fantastic, the accommodation is World Best. I can not recommend this Resort enough. We had a wonderful time. At night it is so quite, the view is to die for and absolutely nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast was also of world standard and the ambience is great. Loved it, loved it, loved it.

We spent 10 days at Millbrook. We used this as our base to visit Queenstown and surrounding areas, which was absolutely beautiful with plenty to do.

We had a two bedroom villa which was outstanding. Housekeeping was efficient and responded quickly to any requests. ALL the staff were super friendly, helpful and efficient.

We used the facilities - gym, indoor pool, outdoor heated spa, and Health Spa - all were great. We used the golf course several times (maybe a little pricey to use everyday).

There is a complimentary transfer service to and from Arrowtown, which was convenient for additional eating options - which was easy and efficient (except for once, when I think they forgot our pick up call, so had to call again).

The only area I had some issues with was the complimentary shuttle service into Queenstown. This sounds good in theory, but it has limited shuttle times, and if the shuttle is full, the only option is a taxi service which cost about $60-70. Maybe something to be considered by management, as it can get a bit hard to work your plans in around the shuttle times.

I had a whole week here, not a golfer but had great access to mountain biking, running and walking options. Really appreciated the peaceful tranquil surroundings, ate and drank at all the various places on resort and they were all pretty good. Not budget but not outrageous either. I had what seems to be an older studio unit in 'The Village", it was showing it's age in places but was clean and spacious. Only complaint was the underfloor heating, couldnt seem to turn it off so kept a window open to let the excess heat out which is a bit wasteful. Staff were all very helpful and delightfully low key. Take good walking shoes and a jacket, this is a very expansive property and it's a good walk between facilities, given the environment and scenery, very enjoyable. One of the better hotel gyms I've used.

Dear Highlander65,
Thank you for your review of your recent stay at our resort. We’re delighted that you enjoyed our local food and wine while you stayed with us. Dining alfresco as you get to soak up the surrounding scenery is a great way to enjoy Millbrook. As Millbrook was a wheat farm back 150 years ago, we like to ensure the resort retains this history and all our rooms have been designed by a New Zealand interior designer, Virginia Fisher. For any future trips to Millbrook you may have, our team here would be more than happy to help you with setting the heating to the correct level for you while you were here. We hope to see you back and Millbrook in the future.
Kind regards,

We visited Millbrook for the day and it was delightful. The free shuttle picked us up from our apartment. We had breakfast at the Hole in One cafe. Then I went off to the spa for a treatment. Bliss. Best I have ever had. Superb facility. Complete luxury, with a typical friendly NZ welcome. My husband went for walks around the resort, which is spectacular. We then met up and after lunch the shuttle delivered us to Arrowtown. Nothing seems too much trouble for the staff.

Perfect for a long weekend away to celebrate a special birthday. The staff really do treat you as though you are rich and famous, I could get used to that very easily! Beautiful grounds, pool, spa, outside hot pools, everything just perfect. Dinner in the Millhouse was a wild experience. Like being at an art gallery only the art was on our plates. Do not depart this earth until you have eaten the Millhouse Baked Alaska........sublime.
Thankyou to everyone for making our special weekend truly special!

Room Tip: Relax, all the rooms are perfect!

i just love this place. it has beautiful view from the rooms and excellent location among mountains.very friendly and caring staff. value for money. excellent food in the hole in one cafe. their fine dining restaurant is also good (millhouse). It is bit far away from queenstown city centre but who cares. they have awesome complimentary shuttle service to queenstown n arrowtown for every hour. i will definitely choose this place if i ever come to queenstown again. 1 small suggestion would be to have microwave oven and a clean water heating jug in the room. everything else was perfect.

Room Tip: Almost all rooms have good view.

We're missing Millbrook resort already! The staff treat you like you're the most important person in the world; when greeted upon arrival, a golf cart whisks up your bags and delivers both you and your luggage to your gorgeous room. We stayed in a villa, which we adored. The bed was like sleeping in heaven. Bathroom and kitchen facilities, everything you could want. Look out your balcony upon the spectacular view! We dined really late the first night we arrived, at the hole in one cafe (wait staff we so kind to accept us right before close!) and it was lovely. The spa and pool were perfection, we enjoyed the facilities late into the afternoon. Breakfast was included in our package, and was like everything else at the Millbrook, spot on.
Thank you Millbrook for having us, we loved your surroundings and everything on offer. We hope to return soon and will recommend you to all our friends and family!
