Braemar Lodge & Spa

283 Medway Rd., Hanmer Springs, Canterbury, 7395, New Zealand

Part lodge, part boutique hotel, these new accommodations were built around all that remains of the original Braemar Lodge—an impressive two-story-high river stone fireplace. Rooms are big and have expansive views across the river plain to Hanmer and its snowy backdrop (in winter). The warm sunny aspect is sheltered from the cold southerly winds that sweep through this area so you'll get real value from your own deck. Interior is neutrally contemporary; the rooms all have gas fires, swiveling TVs and marble bathrooms.

PROS

  • spa units have a hot tub on the deck
  • all units have a whirlpool bath in the bathroom
  • on-site day spa
  • packages available with outdoor activities included

CONS

  • a 10-minute drive from Hanmer
  • access is by several kilometers of gravel road, with a steep but sealed driveway
