A modern, large complex with a great range of facilities available. Warm, very spacious living area, laundry right outside the door. Free wifi. The whole town was extremely quiet the night we were there though so lacked any atmosphere.

We really enjoyed our week at Brinkley. Facilities were great, enjoyed the hot tub with a drink after a day on the mountain. Food in restaurant, was very good standard, and the loveliest of staff. Girls in the bar were great to chat, as were the other guest and locals that popped in for happy hour. Great location, easy walk... More

Very helpful staff. This is the third visit for us and it does not disappoint if you want well valued ski accommodation. The only gripe we had was the outside lights need to be on timers as they can be left on all night as were the tennis court lights. Restaurant is great as is the spa and plenty of... More

Perfect place for a weekend visit to Mount Hutt. Good sized 2 bedroom apartment with a well equipped kitchen, dining table, heating, bathroom with a spa bath and a shared laundry with the room next door, just outside your doorway. The food at the restaurant was fantastic! Very tasty and well presented. The mountain burger is a challenge but both... More

Rooms were very small for the price, the 300mb wifi did not even last 2 hrs as we were searching online for ski fields, wife uploading to Instagram etc. We were originally only going to stay the one night but asked to extend and they charged us an extra $30. No turn down service either. For the price i would've... More

So I went with my family as a surprise bday for my dad and stayed here. The room was great with nice beds. There was a playground out the back and a hole for golf. It was the wrong season for the restaurant but I would have liked it to be all year round. There were two spas and I... More

One night after a lot of travelling makes one tired and the long walk to the rooms with luggage and no porterage added to our woes . That said ... The rooms were comfortable had little kitchenettes attached, warm beds, awesome scenery....Perhaps these resorts are meant for longer stays. Breakfast was average....with servings from the previous nights fare!!
