It was 2 nights of warm and comforting stay at Brinkley Resort during winter in mid August 2012 for my family first visit to New Zealand. The view of the snow peaked Mt Hutt was breathtaking especially sunset just behind the resort. The resort's Shackleton Restaurant serves the best seafood chowder in the world! It was far better than the ones I had near coastal areas in USA, Canada and Australia. The chef was excellent serving our favourite pork belly with scallops, lamb shank, juicy Angus steaks, fresh chunky seafood pizza and even their bread & butter pudding was so yummy! They have a lovely lists of carefully selected wines and the friendly waitress , Ally recommended Dog Point's sav blanc was excellent with fruity taste. It was a great pairing with the seafood.The short drive to Mt Hutt for skiing was just perfect as well. Methven is a great place for a family holiday!
