Braemar Lodge

Posted Aug 6, 2014
Pros: Fantastic location with lovely mountain views. Good bed.
Cons: Staff attitude (not all, but some). More towels. Better furniture. Bathroom heating. Ipod dock on stereo was broken.
We were not made to feel particularly welcome by the on-duty staff member, which was not a good start. The room was very large, which is nice - but was not finished/furnished to the standard you would expect for a 5-star hotel with a tariff much higher than most accommodation in the area. And only 1 towel per person - for $440/pn you would expect a little more generosity! There are other places in Hanmer Springs which are nicer and better value.
