While the borders are closed to New Zealand we are offering special deals for New Zealand residents.
Please refer to our special deals page:

Falcon Brae is now a “covid compliant” facility with all hospitality staff vaccinated and we have a covid protocol in place for both service and cleaning.  For this reason, and to keep our staff and our local community safe we do require all guests at Falcon Brae to provide a current vaccine pass.  This will be a requirement of visiting Falcon Brae so please advise if this is an issue for any of your guests.  We will have a scanner on site.
