5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great stay in Cardrona
Had a wonderful stay at Benbrae, the room was great, very clean, comfortable bed with everything we could have needed. Spacious and well laid out. Was quiet and peaceful, loved the pool and hot pool, was a very comfortable stay and we would love to come back!

2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Disliked: Staff & service
Nice room with terrible service
Nice room, however the service was non existent. Free WiFi was promised but only a small amount was given and when we sought more, we were argued with - a very bad customer experience that left a bad taste in our mouth. The room do not get serviced daily- they only empty the bins! Never saw that anywhere else! Toiletries don't get replaced - one miniature shampoo for two of us for three days! Most of the 'welcome' letter has warnings in red! They threaten that if you don't leave the room in good enough condition that they'll charge you for cleaning! We very much got the impression that they don't care about customers and think that they'd have a great business if it wasn't for us pesky customers!

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great accomodation very central to many locations
Benbrae was an excellent hub for us during our trip to central otago, offering a short drive for us on outings to queenstown, arrowtown and wanaka. And arelaxing spot to comeback to at the end of each day. With fantastic facilities including a bar pool and hot tub. I would stay here again

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
First apartment had problems with the tv.. got moved to another apartment and the extraction fan and heater in the bathroom didn't work. Was gifted a bottle of wine for the inconvenience but overall not great but not bad. Spa wasn't very clean either a lot of leaves and surface dirt. It's 50 minutes to Queenstown and 20 to wanaka no supermarket and general stores otherwise in those two towns. come prepared
