Whether you want to just relax in the cosy units and use the well equipped kitchens or the fantastic restaurant on site, all the ingredients are here for a great holiday summer or winter. The town has heaps to offer with awesome...

The host and hostess/owners are so nice and accommodating that you will not want to leave. Good food, a well-stocked bar and even an honor-system laundry. A delightful pool and a heated spa with views of the nearby mountains.

We prebooked our apartment at least a month out from arrival and were looking forward to our stay. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 infants. Unfortunately we were given an upstairs room, so had to lug all our bags and 2 small children up very steep external stairs. The rooms were basic, nothing flash to reflect the...

Stayed at this resort while on an epic snow boarding trip through New Zealand! Had an awesome stay in a clean and comfortable room. This town is like a sleepy, relaxed and very chilled version of most Australian towns. It's super close to Mt Hutt (which was awesome for boarding) and it is super cheap with two pubs in the...

Handy to Blue and Brown Pubs, and good value for money. Service was prompt and polite. Didn't check out the spa, tennis court or restaurant. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Hopefully that is 200 characters Tripadvisor .

We stayed at Brinkley Resort for 3 nights in early September 2012 and had a great time. The hotel is close walking distance to the main pubs, information hut, car rental and supermarkets.

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.
