This is an amazing place which we had not planned to visit, but owing to the recent earthquake in Kaikoura, relocated to. Didn't regret it. Beautiful views and the biggest bedroom I have ever slept in. The bathroom, with its Jacuzzi, was also enormous. The staff were great and we were very well looked after. Breakfast was probably one of...

Our visit to this hotel was almost faultless, but the price level was excessive in our opinion. Specifically the experience of the restaurant was 2nd to none with excellent service, great views from the picture windows, and superb food. The hotel rooms were five star, well-equipped, oversized, and could not be faulted. The gym facilities where quite poor, but this...

Isolated location, fantastic room, view, food and staff. The new manager upgraded us so that our room would have a better view, which we found hard to imagine, as it appeared everywhere you looked had amazing views, so to room 22 we went...and my word what an outlook, fantastic room too. In the dining and bar area, Mary Joy Boy...

I stayed at Braemar in January and had an incredible experience. From the moment you walk into the beautiful hotel, the staff go out of their way to make you feel at home. From Carol and Janine on reception, to Rich, Mary, and Nina in the restaurant. Was very impressed with the spa tub on the balcony and the beautiful...

I loved this place but there is something not quite right about it and I cannot put my finger on it! Let's get the negatives out of the way first .... no concierge , a weak offer to help get the bags from the car after they were half out and no guidance to the room or adequate explanation of...

We ended up staying here when our itinerary was changed due to the earthquake in Kaikora. The lodge situated outside of Hamner Springs (a big plus for us) within beautiful grounds with stunning scenery. The drive to the hotel is up a dirt track and our car was absolutely covered in dust (luckily it was a hire car). Upon arrival...

Sorry to say that Braemar Lodge & Spa didn't meet my expectations. The room had a nice interior, especially the bathroom. Unfortunatelly the wonderful spa-bath didn't work properly and the bathroom door didn't close in one of our rooms. The gym could need a major upgrade. After a long drive we looked forward to eat at the restaurant. But we...

After a rocky start the lodge lived up to our expectations. Huge room, large balcony, great marble bathroom, double spa bath and shower. California king sized bed. Bathrobe and slippers to wear. Complimentary breakfast
