We were very pleased that we chose this home. The facilities were excellent, the hostess was most helpful, and the garden setting was beautiful. We were close to the village and yet felt very secluded when we returned to our unit.

Thank you for writing a lovely review, we are firstly a bed and breakfast but thought a kitchenette would be a good idea. We were not allowed to put in a full kitchen when we built them, but I will tell the new owners to put in more microwave containers

Sensational location for a B&B, away from the main part of town, peace and tranquility to relax and enjoy the beautiful garden and view. Superbly appointed suite - we stayed in Mt Isobel and there was every comfort needed, including under floor bathroom heating, towels for attending the thermal pools, dvds, fresh flowers in the bathroom and the most comfortable...

Thank you for your lovely review, the garden is coming into its own as we have had no late frosts fingers crossed! My golf has been sadly neglected as been very busy.

Lovely room, exceptionally tidy, beautiful setting (especially in the snow), loved the underfloor heating in the bathroom. Only slight down was the heat source (heat pump), not quite enough with snow outside when we are used to the radiant heat of a fire.

Glad that you enjoyed the white stuff luckily it did not settle. Heat pump heat is different being more of a constant heat than a fire but should have been plenty warm enough as that is all we use in the main house. Thank you for writing a review though.

Two relaxing nights and a wonderful place to stay. The attention to detail is outstanding. Our very spacious studio was super clean and warm and the breakfasts were scrumptuous, Towels for the springs were provided for us and changed every day. A spa tip - go after dinner in the dark - misty and romantic.

Couldn't fault anything with the accommodation. Bindy was helpful, but not intrusive, and the room was perfectly provisioned and wonderfully comfortable. Would love to stay again! Was also a real treat to wake up to a view over the beautiful hills around Hanmer Springs.

Unfortunately my husband and I only stayed for one night, as it was a last minute get away weekend.

The host was very welcoming and showed us to our B & B accommodation. The unit was tastefully decorated and comfortable. The unit had the necessary kitchen equipment (microwave and toaster) to prepare our own breakfast (cereal, scrambled eggs and toast). Even though our time there was brief we enjoyed our stay.
