We had a large room with a conservatory off it in which our breakfast was served. The bathroom was compact but all the facilities were good and the water was hot. After a walk through one of the local woods we returned to change before we met other guests and the hosts in the billiard room for drinks. (Normally this...

My husband and I stayed in the Clarence Suite, which was very spacious. The ensuite is across the hall, but this didn't bother us. The hosts were very friendly and flexible. We had a lovely time getting to know the hosts and guests over the fireplace in the billiard room. Breakfast was served in our room (very delicious), with quite...

Maree and Len really made our stay in Hanmer Springs outstanding. Their house will not disappoint and they are very happy to accommodate any request you may have - including our very early morning breakfast order. The rooms are historic and charming and make your stay in the town one to remember. Be sure not to miss the wine gathering...

Large rooms surrounding elongated courtyard with nice amenities. Breakfast served in room for added touch. Spacious common area with billiard table for added bonus. Easy walk to springs and main shopping area of the town.

What a beautiful little town topped off with the amazing Hospitality of Marie & Len at Cheltenham House. The Windsor room was gorgeous, soft, cosy beds and a relaxed nothing is too much trouble attitude. Breakfast was the bomb. Your stay here will come with no level of dissatisfaction.

The rooms were very comfortable and the cooked breakfast delivered to our room was a delight.

Maree and Len are wonderful to stay with. They are the perfect combination of welcoming and friendly as well as professional in their service. We have stayed with them several times over the years and will always return to stay. Their rooms are warm and inviting stylishly presented. We particularly enjoy the chance to catch up with other guests and...

We arrived here very late exhausted after a 9 hour drive from Picton - due to bush fires - our hosts opened a couple of bottles of wine and cooked a pizza for us which was a great gesture. Our welcome was thus great and our room very comfortable with good en-suite . Well furnished we slept really well. This...

We only stayed for one night but we had a great stay in a fabulous location. The owners are a delight and the social wine gathering before going out for dinner was lovely. Breakfast was excellent and nice that it is served to the room so we were able to enjoy it outside our room. Would definitely stay again
