Queenstown’s five-star Millbrook Resort has been named the number one hotel in New Zealand in the 2013 Trip Advisor Travellers’ Choice Awards.

The annual Travellers’ Choice Hotel Awards recognise the world’s top properties for remarkable service, quality and value. The results come from millions of user-generated reviews and opinions, and this year’s awards were the biggest yet with entries from 82 countries.

Millbrook’s head of operations, Brian Howie, said the award was a wonderful surprise.

“[It’s a] testimony to the continued hard work of the entire Millbrook team to ensure we provide all our guests with world-class, five-star service every time,” Mr Howie said.

“Millbrook will celebrate its 20th birthday in March and this award, which is voted for by our guests, is the perfect way to celebrate this milestone. We are extremely grateful to all our members and guests for their continued support over the last 20 years.”
