we had quite a long journey this particular day of our tour of New Zealand and this place is off the beaten track. You have to turn off the main road to Hanmer Springs and you could easily miss the sign. On arrival the lady on reception made you feel so welcome and booked us in with such ease and...

We booked over the Easter break to get away from Christchurch for the night. Stayed in Room No. 1 Spa suite. An amazingly luxurious room. The Spa treatments were also first-class. This is my third time visiting Hanmer. This is the absolute pick of the places I have stayed.

We decided we needed a couple of days away from the stress of work and made our second visit to Braemar. Last time was 7 years ago. Great decision as this is still a great place to get away. Yes it is getting a little tired, however being refurbed later this year. We chilled in our private outdoor spa with...

Our room was beautiful and spacious. The bed was incredibly comfortable and we took advantage of the outside spa and the privacy the outdoor area had to offer. Our view of the mountains was ruined by the tree line and us being on the ground floor. One of the shower heads in the bathroom wasn't working properly and we found...

The lodge is situated on the lower slopes overlooking the valley looking towards Hanmer Springs. Its about 15 minutes out of Hanmer township. Its surrounded by cattle farms and trees. Its very peaceful with lovely views. The rooms are enormous with huge and very comfortable beds. The spa baths are for two people with separate shower and twin basins in...

Great place. Huge rooms. Make sure you get a room with a spa, worth the extra money. Although big spa bath almost as good. You will have to drive to get to hanmer springs, but peace and quiet and beautiful setting makes it worth it

It's a very luxurious and relaxing place to stay. They have spacious rooms and bathrooms with panoramic views from the balcony. The staff are warm and friendly and the food in the restaurant is beautiful. The lodge is nicely located a short drive away from the Hanmer town making it a very quiet and peaceful haven for guests. The mattress...

Huge suite with all amenities and tastefully done . Big bathroom with boundless shower and spa bath. Hot tub on verandah. Five minutes drive from Hamner spa restaurants and shopping. Having been on our road trip from Auckland this huge space gave us the ability to spread out and chill.

On first impressions you think... 'wow', 5***** but it's just the little things that make it not so wow. This place just needs some love and attention. The welcoming area was poor, the carpet is old and stained, the bathroom ceiling needed attention, there was no help on checking in with luggage, no one to show us how things work...

The location and setting is in wonderful landscape. The suite was huge and the bed comfortable and the bathroom was large and mostly well equipped apart from a malfunctioning shower head. However for an accommodation in this bracket it really failed to hit the mark with annoying and disappointing details that make all the difference. In the Spa, neither the...
