★★★★★ | Peaceful, beautiful setting. Warm and comfortable. Close to Arrowtown, but a lovely country house. Well appointed. Loved the spa pool too. Would definitely stay here again.

★★★★★ | [No comments]

★★★★★ | Very nice accomodation. Good place if you like the quiet away from the city. The Barn is a bit small but the Queen Apartment is very spacious and well equipped. The owner was very accommodating and helpful as well.

★★★★Fantastic find  

An absolute hidden gem. Discovering this place was certainly one of the highlights of our trip. Roy and Tamaki were super friendly And efficient hosts and they made sure everything worked for us. We had the Queen suite which was very spacious comprising living room, kitchen, and bedroom, and an equally massive bathroom. Everything was perfectly clean and organised, and with lots of nice touches. Lots of ground to stroll around, spa, tennis courts, great views. We absolutely loved this place.

★★★★Just Wonderful!! 

We stayed 4 nights in Hideaway North and this has been by far, the best self contained accommodation on our trip in South Island. Location is just off the main highway and there is just some noise if sitting outside. Otherwise it is a LOVELY rural location with country gardens and lots of birds. We really enjoyed sitting on our patio at night and had our own private gas bbq. The apartment itself is immaculately clean and well equipped for cooking. Table mats, coasters etc, modern, bright and comfortable. Lovely views across the tennis court. Very comfortable bed. We had use of a laundry for free with drying airers and ironing board and that was a real bonus. We were very sad to leave and will recommend to our friends.

★★★★Brilliant place to stay

My wife, daughters, partner & myself stayed at the Willowbrook apartments in The Barn, what an awesome place, lovely surroundings, quick commute to Queenstown or the airport, Roy was fantastic to deal with & the accommodation was clean & modern along with being very affordable. We based ourselves there for 5 nights while seeing the sights of the South Island. Can’t recommend this place enough & will definitely be back.

 Friendly staff! great setting! we stayed in the barn and it was perfect for us! The setting was peaceful and the kids loved the space and wildlife…thank you so much.

 Willowbrook Country Apartments is the perfect place to stay while you are visiting Queenstown, fantastic location, peaceful and quiet. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Queenstown to stay here. great service too. beautiful scenery to wake up to in the morning too.

 What a beautiful place. So relaxing. We had a King studio, apt.1, for 4 nights. Willowbrook was better than we expected, the apartment was pristine and stocked with everything you would need. Hot tub is fantastic and just what’s needed after a day touring/sight-seeing. Roy was there to welcome us and show us around, then left us to enjoy our stay but was never more than a phone call away if we needed him. Tim was an excellent host, making us feel very welcome and providing local knowledge if needed. We had our adult kids plus two dogs and were very comfortable. Location is very central for Queenstown, Arrowtown, airport, shopping centres, vineyards, etc only a short drive away although a car is required. Thoroughly recommend!

 The photos on the website don’t do it justice. We are staying in the main house, 5 of us in 1 open plan apartment. Very nice & comfortable. The views are spectacular
