“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2013

What a wonderful place to stay and highly recommended! Bindy is a great hostess and the rooms are so welcoming - spacious, cosy, comfy, quiet, and furnished with care. And to top it all off we were able to have our dog with us as well which was very nice indeed! Can't imagine there would be a better place to stay in Hanmer! Leslie & Steve, Marlborough, NZ

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We felt there are so few places you can have your pets stay with you and I must say it has opened a new market for us, all dogs have been well behaved.

Fabulous one night stop with Bindy. Only wished we had booked longer. Our room was beautifully decorated and Bindy was an excellent host. Completely agree with previous comment, Bindy has tried to cover all eventualities and we would recommend staying here to other travellers. We also enjoyed a couple of hours in thermal pools and were very pleased we had chosen to spend a night in Hanmer.

Stayed February 2013, travelled with family

Terrific one night stay at Marchmont recently on our motorcycle tour of the South Island and what a treat it was. Concur with the other guests that Bindy is an excellent host (didn't meet Peter) and the modern accomodation is beautifully presented in wonderful grounds.

Thoughtful touches like the chocolate brownies waiting for us when we returned from our late evening in the springs were not missed.

Lavish home cooked breakfast served in the garden was another treat.

We adopted Bindy's habit of grabbing lavender and rubbing our hands together on our travels as it grows everywhere in NZ.

A lovely stay, would not hesitate to return.

We stayed for one night and would have loved to stay longer. High quality furnishings, decor and nothing was overlooked, down to the torch to help with night time walks back from the village (only a 15mn walk to the pools), towel for the pools and a beach bag. Bindy was lovely and friendly, yet very discreet. Complete silence at night and a wonderful Superking bed. Divine home-made continental breakfast on the patio overlooking the gorgeous private garden. This did not feel like a commercial establishment, more like staying in someone's own home.

Room Tip: We stayed in 'Mt Isobel' which gets some of the morning sun (we had breakfast at 9am). The o...

We stayed here for 2 nights in January and found it to be a delightful place, We had a lovely, comfortable studio with a view of the beautiful garden and mountains. It is spacious and well-equipped with a very comfortable king bed and lots of toiletries provided. there is a small kitchenette with a small fridge and a microwave. We did our own breakfast but you can pay extra and have this provided. The hosts are friendly and delightful, full of information about the town and restaurants. they have a good collection of DVDs in the room, which is great, as NZ TV is terrible! The thermal pools in town are a great place to visit and there are many walks in the surrounding area.

Room Tip: they only have two rooms and they are both lovely.

What an amazing treat! Best place we stayed at in all our travels on the South Island. We loved our stay at Marchmont Gardens and would not hesitate to go back. The friendly Owners Bindy and Peter, the accommodations, the gardens, the breakfasts and even the bikes were perfect. As B & B owners in Hawaii, we garnered a few tips from our stay on how to take it "over the top".
Thank you Bindy and Peter for your hospitality and an outstanding 2 day stay!! Aloha, Tamy & Rick
