Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Well, two tiny criticisms only. Our room (a deluxe one bedroom) was delightfully situated looking straight at the mountains. It could have done with a lick of paint and the carpets needed replaced or at least the slight fraying repaired. I emphasize that this did not impact on the experience. Disappointed by the continental breakfast delivered to the room. There seemed to be some confusion at the Clubhouse as to whether they even offered this although it seemed clear enough on the website that this was an option for in room dining. Otherwise - a lovely place with excellent golf, and the onsite restaurants were very good indeed. They were pricey (see other reviews), but the room rate at $560 or something compared very favourably with other venues we stayed at that were nothing like as pleasant.

Dear Miniman, What a fabulously perfect title for your review and Millbrook Resort. We are currently in the midst of a rotational painting plan for the deluxe studio rooms, it is something we continuously go through to ensure the accommodation is kept at a 5 star standard. Thankfully we have a wonderful maintenance and painting team to keep the resort looking fresh. We would love if you could provide further information on the specific deluxe studio you stayed in as the carpets are quite new in that area and we would like to address the fraying you mentioned in your review. I will pass on your feedback regarding your experience with the continental breakfast and the communication regarding delivery. Whilst you still had a fabulous stay and spoke highly of the golf, restaurants, and venues we still have an opportunity here to ensure your next stay is a bit more seamless.

An Exceptional Golfing Resort, a real gem. Set amongst beautiful mountains and lush greenery, it is every golfers dream. A quality championship course offering a wonderful challenge, the added bonus of quality restaurants, bars and accommodation makes it a must visit.

Dear Tony, Our Remarkables and Coronet golf courses are truly one of a kind. We are lucky to be set amongst beautiful mountains and lush greenery as you mentioned which give the courses that extra majestic atmosphere. Host to the NZ Open, who wouldn't want to enjoy playing on such spectacular and challenging courses and take advantage of having a selection of individually unique and tasty restaurants at your fingertips. Thankyou for taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your stay and golf at the resort, we look forward to seeing you back on the greens in the near future.

Wow! The grounds here are absolutely stunning! I just couldn't believe how pretty it was. Felt like we had stepped into a storybook. Check-in was seamless and we arrived to our room which was very nice and comfortable. Staff was very friendly! Great bedding! I think my husband thought we were booking our own little cottage, but it was more like a true hotel room. Lots of restaurants options on site and a shuttle is offered into Arrowtown on request if you want to venture off the property, which was so nice! The only complaint was that the doors really slammed from other rooms and it was quite loud, but luckily it wasn't a problem late at night. We have stayed in Queenstown before on a previous trip, but wanted something a little more relaxed! This was definitely it!

The paths and nature around Millbrook are truly enchanting, exploring the resort reveals so many opportunities for postcard photos and picturesque ambiance. I can imagine it has been the inspiration of a storybook or two, the main characters possibly being the entertaining ducklings at the resort. We are glad you chose our resort upon your return to Millbrook and happy it allowed you to have a more relaxing and seamless experience in Queenstown. We hope to welcome you back to our slice of paradise in the future!

We stayed here one night and wish it could have been more! Nice sized comfortable room with very comfy bed. The ground are beautiful and the rooms are just a short walk away. They will pick you up if needed. Dinner was great as was breakfast! Wished we could have played golf but on a schedule!

Thankyou for your kind words and thoughts of Millbrook Resort, it is certainly a shame you could not stay longer but gives you more to enjoy and explore the next time you visit. We hope we get the opportunity to take care of you again and the future and you get to experience one, if not both, of our spectacular golf courses.

We ended our 2 week trip with 3 nights in this idyllic setting. All the restaurants had great food and wonderful staff. The myriad of ducks kept us company and the mountains and rainbows surrounded us. Our 3 rounds of golf were terrific. Transportation was at hand for trips to Arrowtown, Queenstown or the airport. Request a view suite to maximize your experience and don't forget to sit in the hot tubs or swim in the pool.

Dear Maudem, Everyone always raves about the amazing people at Millbrook in which I could not agree more, however I too am very fond of the ducks and their playful nature especially around the spring with all the ducklings marching around. The wildlife around the resort brings this place alive and it is amazing to watch so many different characters playing around the resort. Thankyou for taking the time to highlight your favourite parts of the resort - we truly believe we have something for everyone to enjoy. We look forward to welcoming you back hopefully in the near future.

Spacious rooms with comfy beds. Lovely golf course and manicured grounds. More formal than most NZ hotels. Bit it misses out on simple things like complimentary water and biscuits in your room. Breakfasts are expensive and disappointing compared to other lesser rated resorts.

Dear Faith, The Millbrook team prides itself on its one of a kind guest experience, we thoroughly enjoy the small touches and finer details that make a guest stay memorable. We apologize we have fallen short on this occasion - we do put complimentary biscuits in the room and are always happy to provide guests with still and sparkling water. The team also enjoys getting creative and thinking outside the box on how we can meet special requests or create unique experiences for all types of guests. We often get praised for our unique amenities and surprise and delight initiatives so it is a shame our mistake has not left the best lasting impression of your stay. Rest assured we have taken your feedback seriously and will continue to strive to ensure every guest is made to feel special during their stay. We will also follow up with your breakfast chefs as they place great emphasis on quality produce and delicious meals, breakfast is what starts the day and we wish to ensure we are getting it right.

It was placed in beautiful setting. The food, I found was more for decoration, it was flavoursome but really small portion sizes. We were extremely disappointed, we went to a fast food place after spending a good amount of money on this.

Dear Fearless, Our Millbrook Kitchen and Food & Beverage team pride themselves on providing unique delicious meals whilst ensuring we have something special and fulfilling to offer for everyone. Our restaurants are normally fully booked given their popularity and how well our team look after their guests, I must apologize this is not the experience you received and that you left hungry. We would greatly appreciate if you could e-mail the hotel manager with further feedback and the specific restaurant you dined with so we can rectify this with the appropriate restaurant manager. We grow most and strive to get from any constructive feedback.

I have been to this resort for the second time. The rooms are very large and spacious with a well equipped kitchen. Is perfect for those who love golf and relax only 20 minutes from the busiest Queenstown. You can play golf on alternate days becouse there are two very beautiful 18-hole golf courses. Staff very kind and warm.The Japanese restaurant is very good. Only negative note is that the check in is always very long and you have to wait for the rooms to be free, but the golf bar offer a amazing French fries!

Thankyou for taking the time to tell us about your second stay at Millbrook, it is always the biggest compliment to the team when a guest decides to return to the resort. Whilst we are a world renowned golf resort we do believe we have something for all types of travelers, we are pleased the highlight for you and your family was golf, our Kobe our Japanese restaurant, and the first in the Hole In One Cafe. We do understand your desire to get into your accommodation sooner, our check-in time of 3pm is to allow our housekeeping team to turn over an operationally very busy resort. That being said please always let us know your arrival time to the resort and we will endeavour to get your room ready for your arrival, as you said our staff is very kind and warm and they will do their best to meet any requests or requirements to ensure all guests have a memorable stay at Millbrook. We look forward to welcoming you back for your third stay in the near future.

We had a huge bedroom with easy chairs, desk and chair, walk-in closet, and a mini-fridge rather full of stuff for which you are charged. There was no A/C. The windows open but there were no screens. There was a balcony with a small table and two chairs to enjoy the great view. The bathroom was off the bedroom and had a sink, shower, and separate bathtub but no toilet. The toilet was in a separate tiny room off the entranceway hallway. The toilet room has no sink. This is unacceptable. I do not trust all the other resort guests to go from the toilet room, down the hall into the bedroom then into the bathroom to wash their hands after every time they use the toilet. This is unsanitary and an unacceptable room layout. I made sure to use a napkin to hold the serving utensils at breakfast. The resort has lovely grounds and is quiet.

Dear Elle, Thankyou for taking the time to provide honest feedback on your stay at Millbrook. You provided a perfect description of our large Deluxe Studio rooms, which have lounge chairs, desk, walk-in closet, and an extensive mini-bar to ensure our guests are well stocked with anything they may need throughout their stay. The balcony or patio of our deluxe studio rooms allow our guests to enjoy stunning views of the golf-course or streamside. It is quite common to have the toilet separate to the shower and bathtub in New Zealand. This ensures those having a shower can remain private without stopping another individual from using the toilet. That being said I do understand your concern for hygiene especially considering the world-wide health issues we have experienced the past few years. We have Villas, Resort Homes, and Luxury Retreats with different bathroom layouts that you may find more suitable on future stays. I do apologize as this was not brought to our attention during your stay, our team would have been more than happy to help move you to a different room type you felt more comfortable in. We hope you give us the opportunity to welcome you back in the future and create the perfect stay for you.

This is a beautiful golf resort but it could be a beautiful golf resort anywhere in the world. The room, with its view of the golf course, was first class. To get anywhere (without a long walk) you need to call for a golf cart with driver. A minor but important inconvenience. Did not make use of any of the facilities (of which there are many) with the exception of the outdoor bar area and the on-site Japanese Restaurant. If you are looking for quaint or small this resort is not for you. But if you are a golfer, it is the place.

Dear James, It had been a pleasure to welcome back more and more of our guests from overseas. North America in particular is home to some of the most spectacular golf courses so it is great to be compared and stand up against the best. As noted we have a variety of facilities and offerings that ensure everyone has something to enjoy on the resort. We apologize you found by our golf carts to be an inconvenience, we have a large team eager to assist all guests and we appreciate the opportunity this gives us to connect with our guests during their stay. The grounds are a pleasure to walk around, but we agree for those on holiday looking to relax the team is at hand to make their stay as comfortable as possible.
