Luxurious Hulbert House returns to Brooke Serene portfolio

Brook Serene Boutique Hotels has announced the return of Hulbert House to its luxury hotel portfolio.

Brook Serene Boutique Hotels opened and managed the Qualmark-rated 5-star Enviro Gold luxury hotel from 2016 to 2020 and has resumed management of the property from 1 April this year.

Hulbert House is nestled in the heart of Queenstown and is a beautifully restored Victorian villa that offers six luxurious rooms, each uniquely designed with modern amenities and breathtaking views of Lake Wakatipu and the surrounding mountains.

The hotel’s commitment to sustainability is reflected in its Enviro Gold rating, which recognizes its efforts in reducing its environmental impact and promoting eco-friendly practices.

“We are delighted to have Hulbert House return to our portfolio of boutique hotels,” says Bruce Garrett, Managing Director of Brook Serene Boutique Hotels.

“This iconic property perfectly aligns with our philosophy of providing highly personalised service, a tranquil ambience and rich local flavour to our guests in unique and stunning destinations.

“We are confident that the management transition will be seamless, and we look forward to once again working closely with the dedicated team at Hulbert House to maintain the hotel’s reputation as a premier luxury destination,” added Mr Garrett.
