The multi-award-winning resort has picked up many accolades over the last 12 months including the title of Leading Golf Resort in Australasia for the third year running at the 2012 World Travel Awards in October.

Millbrook Head of Operations, Brian Howie, said: “Today’s award is a wonderful surprise and 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.”

“The Millbrook team are continuously looking at what we can offer our guests to ensure we meet and exceed their high expectations. This award reflects our dedication and investment in offering a world-class resort for all.”

Mr Howie went on to say: “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.”
