“Amazing place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

Loved every second of our stay. The room was fantastic, both meals at the hole in one cafe & bar were great, breakfast was amazing, the staff were all helpful, even just wandering around the grounds was a pleasure. We will most definitely be back.

My wife and I stayed for a long weekend and chose Millbrook for its location and resort style accommodation. We had heard that it was an exceptional place to stay and were not disappointed. On arrival we were greeted by a lovely Russian girl at reception who although a trainee at the time was very helpful and polite. The porters were excellent and took us on a golf cart to our villa suite, taking our bags for us as you would expect. The unexpected was the fact that our porter told us we could call reception and have a golf cart pick us up for breakfast or take advantage of the free shuttle service into and back from Queenstown or Arrowtown at ANYTIME!

The accommodation itself was very well done with high quality fittings, linen etc and kept up to a well maintained standard, as well as being very clean. Lovely spacious room in our Villa Suite, which comprised of a large bathroom with double bath, his and her basins and separate shower. The bed was enormous super king. The living room had a gas fireplace which created a lovely ambience and a flat screen TV cleverly hidden behind a painting on gas cylinder hinges. The kitchenette was of a good size and had everything need to be self contained; it could also be closed off when not in use.

We ate breakfast in the Clubhouse each morning and were greeted by friendly and accommodating staff. The clubhouse itself is stunning with views to match. The food was fairly standard fare in terms of cooked breakfast, i.e. bacon, sausages, eggs etc, but always tasty. There was a good selection of pastries, and cereals and fruit also. The Banana and berry smoothie is a must!

The mill house restaurant is a must if you decide to dine on premises. It is a fairly high quality affair for onsite dining, with great staff and of course good wine list also.

Overall we enjoyed Millbrook very much and would love to go back during summer, as I am sure it is even more spectacular then!

Dear Jeremy J,
Thank you for taking the time to post a review regarding your recent stay at Millbrook resort. The team and I were pleased to hear that you enjoyed not only our accommodation and facilities, but also our service throughout the resort. The talented team at the Millhouse restaurant were especially pleased to hear you enjoyed their fare and appreciated their efforts. We do hope you choose to return to us in summer, as I would thoroughly recommend dinning alfresco at the Millhouse and enjoying a sunset over the Southern Alps, Pinot in hand.

Great place to stay if you are wanting a bit of R&R. The service you get is immculate. Your are very spoilt when it comes to service. You get carted around the facilities in a golf cart. Driven to and from town. Get to enjoy a facial, dine in different restaurants, play gold etc all in one place. I recommend this place to everyone who travels to Queenstown looking for accomodation.

Went here for a work conference back in March. Had an amazing time here. The scenery is beautiful, the service is very professional and the food is amazing.

I quite liked going for a ride on the golf cart even when my room was not that far away from the resturants and bar (I was at Village Inn). Can't wait to go again

This is a beautiful resort, meticulously maintained, and not stuffy in the way a lot of these kinds of places can be. The staff are lovely and the location couldn't be better if you prefer quiet and scenic to the people-watching of boisterous Queenstown.

We didn't stay in the hotel (we stayed across the street at Arrowfield - also lovely), but did go for some waxing at the spa and some playtime for our son. The spa is fairly ordinary and certainly clean and quiet. The staff were absolutely lovely and the prices affordable (which is saying a lot in New Zealand). The waxing, however, was some of the worst I've had. No attention to symmetry and left behind a chunk of wax the size of my finger. You can imagine how pleasant dealing with that on one's own might be...

Dear scully607,
Thank you for your review on Millbrook. We are sorry to hear that your experience at the spa was not up to your expectation. I have passed on your comments to our Spa Manager who will work with her team to ensure this doesn’t happen in the future. The Spa prides itself on delivering a world class experience and will ensure that future training is set up for the therapists. We do hope you will come back and stay with us sometime in the future. Hopefully you will have a chance to experience The Spa that we are very proud of here at Millbrook.
Kind regards on behalf of the team at Millbrook.
