Perfect romantic get away.Beautiful scenery, with unspoilt views and the best staff ever. Particular shout out to the wait staff in the restaurant, what a welcoming and attentive crew. Also the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Only minor negatives was the meal. While both my partner and I left the restaurant satisfied it wasn't the best meal we...

My partner and I took 3 days down from Wellington to relax and explore Hanmer. Braemar was everything we hoped for and more. The staff were so welcoming and helpful, and nothing was too difficult. The room was fantastic- the view of the mountains, fireplace, and luxurious shower were definitely highlights! We dined one night at the restaurant and both...

We stayed here 4 nights for some much needed relaxation and to just get away. On arrival the staff were welcoming and professional, even escorting us to our room and explained amenities. The room was gorgeous, the size was ample with lovely decor. The Californian bed was gigantic and super comfortable!! BUT....the view...oh my gosh the view was heaven! Beautiful...

We booked into Select Braemar for our first trip to Hanmer Springs as a bit of a treat. The accommodation was beautiful, with a large room including gas fire and a huge bathroom. The hot tub on the patio was a highlight - private with a great view of the valley and snow-capped mountains. We also had dinner at the...

Amazing luxury lodge that made us feel like we where in a home away from home. The room was spacious and the amenities were abundant. From the large fireplace to the personal hot tub under the moon and mountains. Had a wonderful dinner in the restaurant with spectacular service staff than managed to introduce me to my new favourite wine....

Fantastic luxury lodge. Take the fun little gravel road from the highway past the paddocks of Llamas to find this luxury lodge. You'll be impressed with the architecture as you climb up the driveway from the country road. We stayed here for one night while travelling between Wanaka and Wellington after our Wedding. The welcome was warm and helpful, and...

I say better than the website, as the ever changing views & tranquillity are things that a website just cannot replicate. The warm welcome was followed by a show around and even taken to my room which is so much nicer than the usual ‘take the lift, turn right etc’. The room was very spacious, and the spa overlooking the...

Weve stayed at Braemar lodge before and this time didnt disappoint. Large rooms, very comfortable, warm and lovely views over the valley to Hanmer Springs. We dined at the restaurant and the food was excellent. Staff very friendly and helpful. Didnt experience the spa this time but plan a return for a pamper trip.

We stayed in a Spa Suite with a private spa on the balcony, and were very impressed with the service and comfort of the suite. The hosts were excellent, and the setting perfect. The mini bar is not badly priced either. The wifi is very spotty, due to the location, but the spa took up most of our time anyway!
