“very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

Stayed here 2 nights with my wife in feb 2012 and met the new owners ( they bought the B&B from Rosie but kept the name ) and were delighted. Although we were disappointed by Hanmer Springs itself which doest deserve the trip to visit we had to sleep somewhere ! And Rosie was the good thing of our stay. It's quiet, the mattress was new ( the new owners made some adjustments ) the hosts very nice and the breakfast good. Definitely worth a try.

Rosie is a lovely and friendly lady but this place should not be called a B&B and is really just an overpriced and glorified backpackers. The rooms are very dated and bathrooms are backpacker style. Breakfast is nothing special just toast, cereal and fruit. The place is in a great location in Hanmer springs but you can do ALOT better for the rates being charged.

Effervescent owner, friendly afternoon glass of wine. Lovely clean rooms
and great pillows.
Nice and quiet location but just a short walk to Hot Springs and main street eating places.
We stayed in "honeymoon cottage" with own ensuite.
Breakfast basic cereal coffee and toast but plenty to eat.

An overpriced hostel like the other reviewers say. We stayed here for our second night and were greatly disappointed by the poor beds (probably the worst of our month long trip) the sparse rooms (no TV for $120?!) and the cheapo breakfast - white toast, "jam" that must be 1% fruit and tinned fruits. We paid a painful $120 for a room here when the Cheltenham House next door (literally) was only $60 more (standby) and on another planet for quality rooms, and full proper breakfast. Go there, splurge and have one of the best B&Bs of your life. You made are making a mistake if you go here.

Rosie herself was pleasant and helpful (hence 2 stars) but really Rosie - please spend a little money on your B&B, new beds, better breakfasts and TV's in the room

Rosies B&B was more like a hostel than a bed and breakfast. For $90, it was overpriced. The rooms were old, the floors creeked and the room was freezing cold. The room had an old wall heater that had a 45min timer on it. We had to get up multiple times during the night to restart the heater as the room was freezing. The bed was quite squishy and my feet hung off the end (Im only 5'8). We both slept terribly. The breakfast was alright, it was continental (which is advertised) with cereal, toast, yogurt and mixed fruit but for a bed and breakfast I have definately had better. We ended up checking out a day early and would not recommend this B&B. It reminded me too much of a hostel at a much higher price. It is in need of an update- new beds and heaters are a must.
