We were given two nights by air children for my husbands 70th birthday. We loved it. The room was huge if a little dated. TV and free Wifi. Lovely view from the private balcony towards Hanmer Springs and the mountains with a sprinkling of snow. The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly and accomodating. We didn't try...

Such a luxurious stay. The bed was so comfortable, the spa bath and shower with jets were relaxing - as was the spa on the deck. My favourite part was the fireplace inside the room, which created the perfect atmosphere, especially with the beautiful Hanmer landscape covered with snow as our view. The room was a wonderful big size too....

This place is located off the beaten track in a beautiful secluded location. We got a Medway Spa Suite with Private Hot Tub on Balcony, the suite was amazing. There was a jacuzzi in the bathroom, gas fire in the suite and the balcony was very private with views to the mountains and the hot tub was already running 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...
