The units at Benbrae were very spacious and clean and tidy. The kitchen was well appointed and the hosts were happy to provide anything additional that we needed for the kitchen. Overall, the beds were very comfortable and we all got a great nights sleep. I was impressed with the extra skiing facilities like heated towel rails in the laundry...

Stayed for a week while skiing. The lodges are very pleasant and are kitted out to a reasonably high standard. The heated tub was welcome after a day on the slopes and is a great place to stretch tired muscles, but it would be a brave soul who ventured into the swimming pool in the middle of winter! Pizza was...

Our stay was worry free. From the lovely young gentlemen at the front desk to the modern and clean villa. We stay for three nights and considered staying longer after the first day. Even though it was below zero outside, the villa was always warm and the roads around the resort were not icy.

When we first stayed at Benbrae in Aug 2009 (I wrote a review back then) we absolutely loved our stay. Since then we have returned every year & it just keeps getting better! The managers of the resort have opened a fantastic pizza & wine bar on the premises. It is a perfect addition to the resort. The ambience is...

Stayed one night in a modern warm and extremely clean villa. Comfortable bed, spacious living and bathroom. Fire place and heater were ideal for a cold winters night!

Our stay at Benbrae was great. Amazing location, with luxurious facilities to match. The highlight of our two night stay was the spa and surrounding area which provided an entertaining evening under the stars. Would absolutely recommend, especially to keen skiers, as you couldn't be any closer to Cadrona and Snow Park.

Stayed as a couple for a getaway in a one bedroom villa and just loved it! The villas are modern, clean and spacious. Ours had a gorgeous sunny deck which was lovely to relax in. These are all beautifully appointed, loved the fireplace, and the peace and quiet! Didnt try the pool, but will be back with family to enjoy!

We stayed for two nights in early March. The unit was modern, well appointed, clean and tidy in a lovely spot half way between Wanaka and Queenstown. The only niggle for us was a very noisy gurgling fridge which is a problem for light sleepers.
