Cheltenham House
Ranked #1 of 15 Hanmer Springs B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 November 2009

We stayed at Cheltenham house for 1 night for our 1st year wedding anniversary and it was first class. The B&B is walking distance from the hamner springs and restaurants and shops. They offer towels to take to the springs. Breakfast is served in your room which was great. The rooms were spotless and had everything we needed. Our evening started with a glass of wine in the billiard room with the owners fo the B&B. It was great to get this chance to speak to the owners and meet the other guests. The owners are the friendliest B&B owners I have met.

All in all a great place and will highly recommend to anyone visiting Hamner Sprints.

This was our second stay at Cheltenham. This time we travelled with another couple. We occupied the two refurbished and delightfully comfortable adjoining garden cottages. It is peaceful, clean, convenient and friendly. Len's breakfasts have to be tried regardless of your diet! Len's and Maree's hosting of evening drinks in the snooker room by the open fire was dangerously enjoyable! If you miss your family pet whilst away from home then the family labrador will love you to bits. A really lovely place to base yourself in Hanmer.

My husband & I stayed here for two nights in a Queen bed garden studio/cottage. The guest house is situated on a quiet street, among beautifully manicured and private garden surrounds. The generously sized rooms are beautiful - immaculatey presented and tastefully decorated. Hosts Len & Maree are just great. They go to a great deal of trouble to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of guests. We particulalry enjoyed the evening glass of wine in the billiards room with Len & Maree and other guests - such a nice touch. You don't have to leave your room in the morning to savour a delicious breakfast - it is brought to your room ( I'd highly recommend Len's omlette by the way! ) This was a 10/10 for us - perfect! Looking forward to our next stay.

The accommodations were great and the breakfast in your own room is an outstanding touch, plus being very delicious. The evening cocktails were like a night out and we were lucky enough to be there when Len and Maree's Aussie friends blew in just for drinks. What a fun time every evening. You will not be disappointed in the location, as you can walk to everything including the hot springs spa and a great Indian Restaurant. Len gives great advise on what to do.

Absolutely beautiful house although we were staying in a separate 'cottage' in the landscaped garden which felt very secluded and special. The hosts were superb- Len and Maree were incredibly welcoming and friendly and brought us a superb cooked breakfast to our room every morning. They also hosted get-togethers for the guests in the evening with free wine in their billiard room. Also very central for getting to the thermal pools down the road and they recommended some great restaurants that were also easily in walking distance. Unfaultable - we thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would recommend it to everyone who is looking for a very special place to stay at a very fair price.

We stayed in one of the garden chalets, which was very spacious and fitted to a high standard, we walked to the springs and used the towels provided, a nice touch, there was a choice for breakfast all brought down to the chalet and set out for you on the table, there is a full size snooker table and books dvds etc for your use, but the nicest touch was the get together with the owners and fellow guests a great place to swap tips and experiences. very friendly place
