This is a self contained apartment resort right near Mt Hutt. Everyhting in the room was well done and we didnt need anything . Things for kids to do as well as easy access to mountains. The real standout was the service from the reception staff and also the restaurant staff who sometimes were the same person on different shifts...

Excellent spot and facilities, people were extremely friendly and helpful!. Walking distance to town and to all the drinking spots. Bus stop at reception for the bus up to Mt.Hutt. Would recommend this place to anyone staying in Methven. I'll be staying there again for sure.

Great location and really friendly staff, easy reach to ski fields and pubs/restuarants. Only a few gripes, as a 4 star resort I would have expected our room to be serviced at least once during our stay, as it was I had to ask for basic supplies such as sugar. The bed could do with a comfort cover and as...

Brinkley's manage owner apartments with many that look out onto the mountains. After a day skiing, you can come down the mountain and straight into the hot pools, with a drink, to relax your muscles. After that its only a short walk or drive into Methven for a meal. The units vary according to how the separate owners set them...

Recently had a pleasant experience while residing at the Brinkley Resort in Methven. During our stay the resort managers were very professional and provided extensive information on activities and experiences to be had around town. The rooms are very well equipped and our room provided numerous cooking utensils allowing us to save more $$ for the snow. Our main reason...

Really warm comfortable apartments well equipped for families in a great spot . The Alps are right in front of your room. Tons of things for the kids and the service is great. Spa pools look straight at the mountain and we highly recommend.

This was the last stopover before leaving New Zealand. We couldn’t stay in Christchurch due to all the hotels being booked and AA recommended Brinkley which is in a little quaint village called Mt Hutt. Really happy we stayed as this village wasn’t in our travel plans and its only 1 hour from Christchurch Airport. Lovely hosts and extremely friendly...

Apartments are well appointed with really nice views of the mountains. Our room had everything we required including a modern kitchen, comfortable couches,seperate bathroom and toilet, a laundry and also very importantly good beds. We visited out of ski season so the town and complex were very quiet which suited our needs as we were on a much needed holiday...
