“A very high quality b & b”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

This is an excellent b & b. Set in a peaceful and beautiful garden, with stunning mountain views, slightly out of the town centre and next to the golf course. The large bedroom has tasteful, high quality furnishings and is very comfortable, opening on to a private terrace and the flower filled garden. En suite bathroom also large and very high quality. Excellent breakfast served on our terrace. Bindy is a very welcoming and helpful host. We'll certainly return.

Loved our stay at Marchmont Gardens. Our suite was spacious, clean and well equipped. The garden view immediately outside was stunning. This is the prefect place for relaxing. And the location is within a 5 minute walk into town and the thermal pools.

Room Tip: Only two suites, both superior.

Just passing through really - but staying here was a real pleasure.

A tranquil and well cared for place. Great attention to detail, lots of extras - chocolate cake, bags and take out bath towels ready for visiting Hanmer Springs, a lovely breakfast in the garden. We wish we'd stayed longer to enjoy the room, the garden, use the BBQ, bikes, golf clubs etc.

Bindy was an excellent host who takes great care to make sure you are well looked after.

Room Tip: Both rooms are excellent

Short stop over in Hanmer Springs was made much more enjoyable by the stay at the excellent Marchmont Gardens. Bindi was a superb host and the breakfast was absolutely amazing. Lovely room and beautiful surroundings - highly recommended!

What a fantastic place to stay. The room was just gorgeous - spacious, spotless and sunny - and the garden setting is beautiful. Breakfast was delicious, complete with homemade preserves and a fabulous rhubarb & berry compote. So good I came home inspired to make my own!

Bindi & Peter were very welcoming. The highlight for us was that we could take our wee Miniature Schnauzer (we rang ahead and checked, he travels with his own crate to sleep in). Bindi made a real fuss over him, even bringing out a wee toy for him to play with. Lovely, lovely place - will definitely stay there again. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: There are only two units, next to each other & looking out over the garden.

Thanks for your hospitality Bindi. The room was beautiful and breakfast was so awesome that I took a photo. The room had everything you could possibly ask for including a huge range of DVD's. I totally recommend Marchmont if you are lucky enough to get a booking.
