Bindy made us very welcome when we came to stay in April this year. My partner and I were very impressed with our luxurious room overlooking stunning gardens and a view of the mountains. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone considering it. We will definitely be going back.

Marchmont Gardens was the perfect way to end our NZ holiday. The surroundings were relaxing and the service was outstanding. It was everything we needed to complete the perfect holiday experience.

Room Tip: Either room will be ideal.

The rooms are more like individual town houses (called self-contained units here) so we had a complete sense of privacy. The room is very clean and modern but with lots of comfortable places to sit (inside and out). A lot of B&B's only have a bed but this place had a small kitchenette, a living room, a table and an outside table and chairs. The location is right on the golf course and an easy walk to the Pitch and Putt which was lots of fun and surprisingly challenging. I don't think there's a better place to stay in Hanmer than here.

Arriving from Western Australia, we began a 3 week holiday to Southland with a weekend in Hanmer Springs to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. When a previous B&B booking in town cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, the owner recommended Marchmont Gardens saying "Bindy will look after you" and she certainly did! Our stay exceeded all our expectations - a private luxuriously appointed suite overlooking a tranquil garden with views to the mountains; homemade biscuits to have with tea on arrival; drinks and nibbles with Bindy and Peter in their home on the first evening; a-m-a-z-i-n-g breakfasts each morning, towels provided for visits to the thermal springs; a bottle of wine and nibbles platter on our last evening; small treats left with turndown service. Thank you so much Bindy and Peter for your wonderful hospitality. The bar has been set very high for our future B&B experiences! Nola and Peter Watt

We just came back from two nights at Marchmont, staying with friends who were traveling from Chicago. I can't imagine anything Bindy could do to make this B and B better! Her attention to detail is just amazing. The rooms are lovely with high quality furnishings, comfortable beds with sheets with a clearly high thread count and everything you would need. Bindy's Kiwi breakfast is amazing, and other touches like leaving a homemade cookie (delicious) during her turn down service in the evening, are so thoughtful! It is nice to be a bit off the beaten track in Hanmer although no worries - it's a 13 minute walk across a nice path to get to town, and of course you can always drive if you'd rather. The gardens around this B and B are just exquisite. We've stayed in a lot of B and B's in NZ and this is absolutely top notch!
