Scout loves

  • The founder’s philosophy of providing “a lovely place for lovely people”.
  • The beautiful décor, which is in keeping with the building’s French heritage.
  • Rooms with views that stretch across the golf course fairways and to the mountains behind.
  • The facilities, which are the best out of any of Queenstown’s accommodation options. 

Scout tips

  • Millbrook is located about 20 minutes drive from Queenstown and less than 5 minutes from Arrowtown. Regular shuttles take you to those towns.
  • You will need a car if you want to get to the ski fields easily.
  • Except for the cottages, you can’t park directly next to your room, however a concierge will happily whisk you and your luggage to your door in a golf cart.
  • There is a surcharge for Wi-Fi.


Queenstown buzzes with energy all year round, but it’s in wintertime that it truly comes to life. During the ski season the town becomes flooded with revelers, which can make it difficult to find peace and quiet. Luckily, Scout has done the work for you and found Millbrook, which will provide a breath of fresh (mountain) air for anyone seeking something a little more serene.

Just 20 minutes from Queenstown’s hub, Millbrook is a beautiful golf and Country Club set on acres of land, nestled right under the snowcapped mountains. It has the sophisticated elegance of an American-style country club, providing a stately sense of tranquility away from the partying hordes.

It’s not like a big hotel – instead, various lodging options are scattered around the golf course, with many rooms providing sweeping views of the fairways and the mountains beyond.

Room types include hotel rooms (called ‘Vintage Inn’ rooms), one and two bedroom ‘Villa Suites’, as well as a collection of two and three bedroom cottages. They are all decorated in a French-Provincial-meets-Hamptons style, which is perfect for a more mature, discerning guest. However, young families and couples who are looking for a quiet and relaxed getaway will feel right at home, too.

Meanwhile, the facilities are some of the best Scout has seen. Along with two championship golf courses (not playable in winter), there are tennis courts, an indoor lap pool, a huge gym, hot tubs and a full-service spa. There are also several dining options, including the newly-renovated restaurant ‘Kobe Cuisine’, which is home to Queenstown’s only Teppanyaki grill.

And Arrowtown, a historic gold mining town located about a two minute drive away, is also home to some superb restaurants, including Saffron and La Rumbla (which serves up some truly fantastic tapas). 

Who should stay here

Millbrook would suit a more conservative traveller who is looking for a peaceful and relaxing escape away from the busyness of Queenstown.
