We stayed at Brackenridge because we had a voucher for a night in a studio unit (part of a package bought at a charity auction some months prior). We stayed 2 nights and paid cash for one. At $159 per night it is very reasonable. It does represent good value for money which is why I have given it a...

Very happy with the facilities and the challenges we had, the venue was excellent and the staff went to a considerable effort to meet out needs and the team building exercises. We shared a cottage with another team member and the facilities and furniture in each of the cottages were of a very high standard. Although looking old and rural,...

We had a voucher for a studio stay that had expired, but Brackenridge were very happy to accommodate us. Nice comfortable studio room, very well equipped. We didn't use any of the other facilities - spa, gym and pool. Maybe next time, as we are sure to be back.

Located half a mile from the centre where there many shops, small supermarkets, butchers and places to eat. The place has 8...

The cottage was very well equipped and a lot of attention had gone into the smaller details from leaving the fire all set and ready to be lighted, to the provision of yummy breakfast foods. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the beds and...

The open fire added to the ambience. Everything we needed for a weekend away. Great staff and facilities/services. Loved the lap pool and hot spa and great range of treatments...

From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the more than welcoming staff the resort delivered much more than we expected. We stayed in a four bedroom cottage which had every amenity we required. The cottage was lovely and warm and as the day closed in the toasty fireplace added a lovely ambiance. The beds we very comfortable, breakfast...

Tastefully decorated room with extras (heated bathroom floor, small fireplace, coffee beans for grinding, linen bed cover, lap pool etc). Kitchen well equipped for a plentiful continental breakfast plus eggs if you want to cook them up....

We held a conference here and had a wonderful time! Firstly, the staff were so friendly and always happy to help, they booked activities for us and were always on hand to offer assistance which was lovely! The food I believe was catered and also very good - we are vegetarian so I thought that might have been a struggle...
