“Beautiful honeymoon destination :)”
Reviewed 31 March 2013 via mobile

This was the first of many surprises for the beginning of our honeymoon.. Such a serene peaceful setting, with the gorgeous cedar cottage fully equipped, you couldn't possibly want for anything else! Away from the hustle n bustle of busy everyday life... Mike, Liz & lettie ( cute little dog) :) are fantastic hosts... Spent 4 beautiful sunny days here last week, looking forward to going back in the winter time so we can enjoy looking out at the snow capped hills while warm n cosy by the fire inside!!! This place is a must!

We had the pleasure of staying at Woodbank for just the 1 night. A beautiful contemporary and spacious cottage in a very peaceful setting. We would definitely recommend it for a relaxed getaway. Mike and Lizzy have provided Hanmer a 5 star experience with great service and we hope to return again in the near future - this time for a little longer.

My wife and I have just spent 2 memorable weeks at Woodbank Park cottages and cannot recommend them more highly. We were both is need of a long rest with nothing to do but escape from the world and recharge the batteries. Our cottage was beautifully equipped with everything we needed and our hosts, Mike and Lizzy saw to it that we wanted for nothing ! Their attention to detail was faultless and the fittings are of the highest quality. We loved the log fire at night, the new born lambs outside the windows and views of snow capped mountains. We could have stayed for ever !
I played twilight golf at the nearby club with Mike and Lizzy while my wife soaked away her aches and pains in the thermal hot pools. There were books to read, games to play, towels for the pools and DVD's for the insomniacs ! I went quad biking for the first time in my life and have asked Santa for one for Christmas !! Why would anyone stay in a motel, when luxury like this is so readily available ? If you really want to spoil yourselves, there is no better way to do it !
We have already planned a return for next winter when the snow will be deep and we will be alone in a world of our own ! This is the perfect couples retreat - and maybe, we will share it with you !!

Room Tip: The King Size beds will ensure that you never wake up before you want to !

We recently stayed two nights at Woodbank Park Cottages and were highly impressed. Michael and Liz are amazing hosts who have created a very special accommodation experience just five minutes drive outside the (relative) bustle of Hanmer Springs.

The cottage we stayed in was absolutely and completely immaculate in every respect, including very high quality furnishings and fittings. It was spotlessly clean and the bed and bed linen were outstanding. The galley kitchen has an amazing range of crockery and cooking utensils and the complimentary cheese platter was a lovely touch. There are many other thoughtful touches throughout, including towels for the hot springs and umbrellas. The fire was set and ready to be lit upon our arrival.

The cottages sit in a lovely little pine forest with glimpses of the mountains beyond and each has a great little veranda (and BBQs to boot!). We also really enjoyed the generous proportions of the cottage we stayed in. In summary, this is one of those accommodation experiences where, from the moment you walk in, you know you are in good hands! Highly recommended.

My partner and I stayed at the Woodbank Park Cottages at the end of August for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer.

The 2 cottages are tucked away 5 minutes from the centre of town, however it feels like you are miles away. They are surrounded by trees and have amazing panoramic views of the snow capped mountains.

The self contained cottage itself was perfect - immaculately and modernly styled, with a fully stocked kitchen and a fireplace (with firewood and kindling all chopped and ready to go). Mike and Liz really have thought of everything, with beach towels and a bag just for use in the thermal springs provided, as well as books, magazines, DVDs and Scrabble! We were also surprised with a really lovely cheese platter on our first night, as well as lots of affection from their gorgeous Jack Russell Molly.

If you're after a peaceful, luxurious, romantic getaway, Woodbank Park Cottages have it all. Mike and Liz really are the perfect hosts and have outdone themselves with their generous hospitality. We will be back!

Recently spent two nights in one of these delightful fully self-contained cottages. There was TV, DVD, books, picnic basket and all sorts of little extras that made these two nights quite special. All of this just a few minutes from the tourist town of Hanmer Springs but private and so comfortable. The hosts Mike and Liz were extremely gracious but discreet and Molly the dog a delight though well mannered. There are many houses in NZ with fires (which we love) but in the past we have had to clean or pay about $100 extra so to find accomodation with a fire and wood supplied without this added work or expense was quite exciting plus all the luxury - wow.
Thank you Liz and Mike, what you are offering is quite special.

If you're after luxury, privacy and comfort, Woodbank cottage has it all.. Tucked away off the road just 5 mins out of the bustling town surrounded by trees you will find yourself in a peaceful, immaculate cottage with everything you could possible need and a very comfy bed.
We were gifted this from a girlfriend and it was a perfect 2 night escape in Jan 2012. The hosts are just lovely, friendly without out being invasive. We kicked back and enjoyed the DVD'd provided and I read the great selection of mags provided. We were treated to not only a cheese platter on arrival but also home grown raspberries and cream – yummy. We loved the sheep and Molly the Jack Russell is just so adorable. Thank you Mike and Liz, we look forward to returning
