                Location, ski shuttle stops on site, excellent management

                I was in Methven for a weekend of skiing at Mt Hutt and stated in a studio room. Whilst small, the room was perfectly functional with cooking and laundry facilities available if needed. The ski bus stops on site and the resort is a short walk to local pubs and restaurants.

                Big room, kitchenette and walking distance to shops

                Reception was closed when we arrived, but our key had been left for us to collect, which was great. The room was really big, with a table and chairs and kitchenette (with cooking utensils). We were also glad to discover a shared free laundry with washing machine and dryer between our room and the adjoining unit. Great place for a one night stay - and would be excellent for people using Methven as a base for going to Mt Hutt.

                I enjoyed my stay at Brinkley resort. Me and my wife found the room to be very comfortable, and had all the facilities that we needed. It was a quiet time of year, but we weren't disturbed by any unreasonable noise. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful, and- even though we arrived late- we had a hassle free check in.

                Disappointed that bar and restaurant were not open, and that this is not made known at the time of booking. Also no room service which is a bit of a problem as many of the restaurants close early on some nights in the village. Also hard to cook anything up when the kitchen only stocked two pots and you want to cook a steak. Never saw any staff, it was like staying in a ghost town. Have stayed before, I was very disappointed with this visit and will think twice about staying again.
