We stayed in Braemar on the first night of our A2O ride. Fabulous location , couldn't take enough photos of the mountains and lake. Julia supplies a lovely meal with the best steaks plus salads and excellent apple crumble . All you need the following day for breakfast plus a nice packed lunch to take on our journey.

After a day of mountain biking in the area our group of 10 rode up to Braemar Station Shearers Lodge and we thought we had died and gone to heaven. The views from this place are incredible and the various rooms more than suited our large group. I spent the night on the enclosed porch in a twin bed with...

After cycling the first section of the Alps2Ocean trail, the Station Cottage was absolute luxury. This is the newest building with lots of privacy and amazing views of Mount Cook. The beds were comfortable, the cottage was clean, the kitchen was fully equipped and the owner very accommodating! We couldn't ask for more. Fresh salmon for dinner and fresh eggs...

We stayed (2 couples) at Station Cottage after having biked from Mt Cook/Aoraki that day. The cottage was delightful with 2 double bedrooms and 2 bedrooms with twin beds. Also 2 bathrooms. The living/kitchen area was delightful going out onto a large deck which looked out to Lake Pukaki and up to Mt Cook. Absolutely stunning views! Our dinner (salmon)...

We stayed at the Shearer's quarters as part of an Active Adventure trip. The weather and the views on the first stay were simply spectacular. You are away from any civilization and feel like Mt Aoraki and the beautiful lake are all yours. The rooms are quite nice, but the amenities are very rustic in keeping with the Shearer's quarter...

Our tour group occupied the entire main rooms and the separate cabin. We were treated to a stampede of sheep while checking in. The sky cleared after our arrival so we had wonderful views of the lake and the Mt cook ranges. The cabin had plenty of room. We shared a communal toilet and shower that had multiple stalls which...

My wife and I spent 2 nites at the Shearing Shed as part of an Active Adventures tour of New Zealand. The setting is amazing with incredible views of Mt Cook and the Southern Alps. The accommodation is rustic and set in the middle of a cow pasture. The cows were a bit shy, but provided some good entertainment and...

Thank you for your review. The Shearers lodge is located on a working High Country farm, we could fence it off but have chosen not to as that would impact the expansive view, so occasionally we do need to graze that paddock. When you stayed it was with cows and calves which can be quite inquisitive. There are 2 bedrooms...

This has to be one of the best locations in the world for a B & B. We stayed in the newest cottage - Station Cottage - beautifully but simply furnished with panoramic views of Mount Cook. With nothing between us and the stunning blue Lake and with the backdrop of the pink mountain in the setting sun, it was...

Stayed in the Shearer's Quarters (Lodge?) On our first night of the Alps to Ocean Cycle Trail. Amazing place to stay, warm and comfortable. All food was provided to us and they were amazingly accommodating to difficult dietary requirements. 10/10
