My wife and I stayed in the Mt Isobel unit for our 10th wedding anniversary. Host, Bindi, was very welcoming and full of great advice about things to do in and around Hanmer Springs.

The unit was very clean and tidy with a much better ambience than a traditional hotel. The gardens of course were wonderful. We were sitting in the garden and were visited by a friendly hedgehog who obviously lived in the garden along with all the birds and delightful plants.

Service was impecable. The cooked breakfast was scrummy and the 5pm drinks with cheeses etc was great.

Only suggested improvement we would have is to add a small rubbish tin in the bathroom. Other than that, everything was spot on.

Pete and Bindy Moore have brought great style and energy to their delightful 2 unit Bed&Breakfast. The breakfast option should not be missed. Bindy's high energy and love of the land is to be seen in her garden. You join this world for too short a time but you will come back if life allows! Make time! What a perfect holiday break with our friends Hans and Dorothy from Germany.
Wonderfuly hospitable hosts.
Sadly, Henry (the Dog) was away at his other home.

The apartment was beautifully designed and spacious. The breakfast was fantastic and the surroundings and view of the mountains was spectacular! To stay here one or two nights is a great experience.

Absolutely perfect - Pete and Bindy know how to do B&B! Elegant, modern, and comfortable rooms (separate from the house) that overlook the beautiful gardens and the mountains. Fantastic service from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Delicious breakfast with both a hot and a cold option. Bikes are available to use - to get into town or to the themal pools. Great location off the main road but still very close to town, the pools, and the walking paths. Lots of little extras that make Marchmont Gardens stand out - fresh flowers in the bathroom, homemade cookies in the room, a drawer full of DVDs and games, a beach bag in the closet to take to the pools, and overall fantastic, warm, and inviting service. If possible I would have extended my stay!

I highly recommend staying at Marchmont Gardens. The whole experience was pure indulgence.

The rooms were very nicely furnished and the garden was just beautiful. There was also some very nice personal touches...homemade cookies awaited us, our washing was done free of charge and there was a range of dvds to choose from to watch! The best part was eating a home cooked breakfast in the garden.

Bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. It was an easy 10/15 minute walk into town.

Just returned from a week at Marchmont Gardens, staying in the Mt Isobel suite. I completely concur with the previous reviews. The room was superb, with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. The fitting and fixtures were of the highest quality and the views and the gardens were wonderful. The hosts were an excellent source of information on the area, especially the walking/hiking trail which we made the most of. Whether for a short or longer stay in Hanmer Springs I would recommend Marchmont to everyone

Stayed here for two nights in October, having prebooked before leaving Australia. All the amazing reviews are absolutely true, what a wonderful stay we had here. Bindy such a perfect host, has thought of everything, as mentioned beach bag with towels for mineral springs, home made cookies and the best bed I have ever slept in. Such a large room, beautifully decorated. So peaceful & quiet and the gardens are amazing. Loved the complimentary wine & platter each night. Breakfast well that was wonderful too, we had the cooked breakfast & delivered to our room at a pre arranged time, & wonderfully scrumptious and beautifully presented, even muffins to eat later. Thankyou Peter & Bindi for a wonderful end to our holiday in NZ a truly memorable stay for us.
