“Excellent family B & B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

We were greeted by a very warm and friendly lady and shown to an extremely comfortable room which had everything we could want. The internet connection was excellent. We were recommended a restaurant for dinner which was superb and within walking distance. The hot pools are within walking distance. Our room was quiet, which my husband really appreciated. The next morning we were treated to a delicious breakfast, which set us up for the day.
Not only is the service fantastic, the surroundings beautiful, the shower was top notch, the atmosphere inviting, but it was very affordable for a family of 4.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013

Can highly recommend staying here with Len & Marie, they are fabulous hosts. Superb location, immaculate house, everything laid on, very comfortable. Nice touches are the drinks in the billiards room in the evening to allow guests to meet one another, also lovely was having a beautiful breakfast served in the morning in your room. Very good location close to restaurants & the hot pools, they also have a hot pool of their own in the back yard which makes for a lovely treat in the evenings! Will definitely return here for more star treatment!!

We have previously stayed with Maree & Len in their beautiful B&B Villa. This time a group of us stayed in their recently acquired property in Rutherford Street. An expansive fabulous home away from home, beautifully furnished, exceptionally well appointed and equipped with alot more than the kitchen sink! Many thanks to our hosts for making this house available and we hope to get back very soon.

If you would enjoy a touch of gracious living, then arrange to stay with Len & Marie in their lovely, beautifully appointed home. Rooms and beds are generously large, everything well thought out and scrupulously clean. We enjoyed a complimentary glass of wine with them in their fabulous Billiards Room before taking their recommendation for an evening meal at a local restaurant. Breakfast next morning, served in our room, was simply fantastic. Go on, book a night or two with them and let Len and Marie spoil you as well!

We first stayed at Cheltenham House a few years ago and promised ourselves the pleasure of staying there again if the opportunity arose. Marie and Len are lovely hosts, and the breakfasts are the best we've had in any B&B. The rooms are large, comfortable and well-appointed, the location is excellent, and the welcome is warm. Two visits aren't enough to appreciate it all. We'll be going back again.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely, and the downstairs rooms with the sunny window seats are great for fully a...

We nipped up from Christchurch for a night and had the pleasure of staying with Len & Marie. Lovely big rooms to stay in, a very friendly wine in the billiards room before you head off into town for dinner and then a super cooked breakfast in the morning. Definitely recommend this place. Enjoy your European holiday guys - make surer you email Claire :-)

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

My daughter and I spent two wonderful nights here. We had a twin room upstairs with a queen bed each with an ensuite. The room was clean, spacious and very welcoming. It is a short 2 min stroll to the main street and Spring Bathes. They provided us with towels for the springs and an amazing home cooked hot breaky which we still rave about. The highlight for me was a nice wine in front of a beautiful open fire prior to heading out to dinner. The house is very inviting and warm. Would definately say it is the pick of Hanmer.

Room Tip: I think any room here would be beautiful.
