“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014 via mobile

Received a very warm welcome upon arrival here. We were shown to our unit and given an overview of the pools and recommendations for dinner that night. Unit was clean and very spacious with extra towels to take to the pools, a washing machine and even fresh baking! Couldn't help feeling like we were at home. Wonderful view of gorgeous gardens and hosts were so friendly. Within walking distance to everything. Thank you so much for an amazing end to our South Island tour, we have been recommending you and will be back!

Harrogate Gardens is the perfect place to get away from it all!! Private, quiet room set in beautiful gardens with everything you need!! Very impressed that they had towels available to take to hot pools. Close to town and within walking distance of pools, restaurants, shops!! Highly recommend and hope to get back again soon!!!

We are currently staying here for the night. Very pleased with the quality of this cosy unit. A perfect size for a couple wanting to get away for the weekend, or like us, traveling through Hanmer Springs on our NZ holiday.

This unit is well equipped with all the necessities. Microwave, kettle, small fridge, toaster and a two burner gas stove top! This unit is nestled away in a beautiful garden of colour. There are two units on this block, which means it would make for a perfect double couple's holiday. The bathroom is so lovely. A big spa bath great for warming up on one of Hanmers rainy days. We are enjoying this unit as we prefer to stay in private, self contained units rather than motels or hotel rooms. Another thing I need to mention is how polite and friendly the owner is! Kerry happily greeted us and welcomed us in even though we were two hours early for check in. Kerry also baked yummy chocolate brownies for our arrival!

All in all a very comfortable, clean and private unit that is well worth visiting.

Great place to stay. Excellent price. Friendly hosts (great home baking), everything provided that we needed, even towels to take to the thermal pools which were very close by. We stayed here one night on a road trip fro Dunedin to Nelson and it was perfect. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Has twin room option which I found hard to find when looking for accommodation in Hamner.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights as part of a Pamper Pack accommodation/pools/spa package offered through the local tourist office. We were given a short list to choose from and after checking reviews and websites nominated Harrogate as our first preference, and were very pleased when they were available. The units are quite spacious with a small dining table, couch, large TV, well equipped kitchenette, and a lovely window seat. Everything was clean and well kept. The bed was very comfortable with electric blankets and extra blankets provided, though I think the couch was a sofa-bed and wasn't terribly comfy for long periods (but the TV was easily viewable from the bed). The bathroom is large with a corner spa, though like a previous reviewer we had difficulty keeping the floor dry when showering with no door or curtain.

Fresh pool towels were provided each day, free wifi (though we had to sometimes stand by the door to get a connection) and lovely homemade brownies or slices were provided each day. We were welcome to borrow DVDs from their good collection, which we did. The hosts were extremely friendly and welcoming and it is in handy walking distance to the information office, pools, and shops. Recommend.

I stayed here for one night during my Road Trip in South Island. The owner met me when I arrived and could not have been more helpful pointing out all the facilities of the room, and describing where the pools were - really close, as they are just across the road. There were also towels that could be taken to the pools, plus some home made cake, which was a really nice touch. The bed was very comfortable, and I had a great sleep too.

I found quite a lot of places closed in Hanmer Springs itself. I know I was travelling in low season but as it is basically a resort I thought there would be more choice in terms of food options for the evening. Nevertheless, I loved the Harrogate Gardens and would recommend without hesitation.

We really enjoyed our stay, what a great location - so close to pools and resturants. Nice warm room, comfortable bed, fresh baking daily. Great selection of DVDs also. Friendly and welcoming owners too.

We will book with you again next time we are in Hanmer.

Many Thanks

Emma
