One of my all-time favourites ... the room was spacious and clean, and had a lovely view in the back (baby sheep jumping around is a delightful way to start the day). The location was amazing ... so close to everything. Thank you to Kitty for arranging our night out at the Maori dinner - even giving us a coupon...

Hi Michelle , yes we are very spoilt with having a farm on one side with the deer and baby lambs at this time of year, and the trout stream on the other side of the property. It was my pleasure to help you with your plans on your stay.Look forward to seeing you again Kitty

Had a lovely room with spa pool overlooking the trout stream. Evening bird song was beautiful. The room was immaculate and the bathroom spotlessly clean. The location is very handy to the cable car and luge, ideal for families. Owners are very friendly. We would highly recommend this resort .

Thanks Annie for your review, and yes I enjoy the tui's song during the day, it is lovely being just out of town so that we can enjoy the fresh air and nature but close enough if you want to go in to see the museum and other tourist attractions. Thanks for staying with us

Our room was picture perfect! Spacious room and bathroom with the best shower ever! And the 'cherry on the top'...a private deck with hot tub that was so relaxing after a long day of travelling, which overlooked a gorgeous babbling trout stream. Huge choice of TV channels, free wifi and comfy retro lounge chairs. The only downer would be a...

We stayed 1 night in one of the rooms overlooking the stream with a hot tub. We were greeted by a very cheerful receptionist which gave us a great impression of the place. The room was spacious, had everything we needed. We ran out of time to use the hot tub unfortunately. Excellent location being about 100m from the Skyline,...

We are overall very pleased with our stay, we had plenty of space for the kids (3 under 5 yrs old) to sleep and play in the rooms as well as the playground and mini golf facilities on site. The private spa is recommended and warm outdoor pool also great for the kids. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Walking...

Our motel rooms were spacious, with the second room being self contained also! The kitchen was large with a good cooker. The spa, although not used, was very clean. The rooms were serviced daily and bed was very comfortable.

We loved staying here. Our unit was spotless, comfortable and well equipped, with its own spa on the back deck. It was the lovely gardens ( enhanced by a stream with watercress and trout right below our window!) and facilities that impressed me the most but it was also very quiet. The food in the restaurant there was excellent and...

We held a 21st Teacher training reunion here and it was fabulous. It took a while to find everyone, and set a date, but the staff at the "Brook Bar and Bistro" and the Motel the Braeside Best Western alongside it, were very patient. They were most welcoming, being able to book accommodation at the venue meant that locals and...

This is a very nice little hotel. We stayed in a room overlooking the trout stream. It was spacious and well equipped, and the beds were very comfortable. The receptionist was extremly helpful.
