Luxury Queenstown resort takes out top prize

A multi-award winning luxury resort located in the South Island alpine town of Queenstown has been named one of TripAdviser's Top Hotel’s for the second consecutive year.

Luxurious Millbrook Resort

Queenstown’s luxurious Millbrook Resort has won the accolade for the Top Hotel in New Zealand in the influential travel website’s annual Travellers’ Choice awards. Along with being the world’s largest travel site, TripAdvisor is also notable for recognising some of the most outstanding properties in the world.

In addition to the award Millbrook was also named in the top 15 hotels in the South Pacific.

Set amongst 500 acres of lush green land, adorned with wild lavender and bright lupins, the private and tranquil Millbrook Resort offers one of the most memorable hotel experiences.

Award-winning golf course

Millbrook boasts one of the most scenic (and award-winning) golf course in the world. Each of the resort's three nine hole courses - traversed by some of the world’s best golfers as the resort co-hosts the New Zealand Open - are named after famous Queenstown landmarks.

Millbrook’s award-winning day spa offers the ultimate in pampering and relaxation. Four exquisite dining options leave guests spoilt for choice.

Millbrook Resort head of operations Brian Howie says it was a "huge privilege" to receive the Top Hotel in New Zealand award which is determined based on the reviews and opinions of TripAdvisor travellers around the globe.

"We’re delighted to be named top hotel in the country once again. The thousands of valuable guests and TripAdvisor users who stay with us every year have helped us achieve this fantastic status once again."

Further accolades

Millbrook Resort is no stranger to award wins taking out the titles of New Zealand’s Best Golf Resort and Best Luxury Wellness Spa Australasia and Oceania at the World Travel Awards in October 2013, as well as regularly winning numerous industry, spa and golf awards and nominations.

The resort is riding a huge wave of success following multiple recent award wins in 2013, 20th birthday celebrations and continued development of the resort and its realty offering.
