“High quality great hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014 via mobile

Greeted with a warm welcome and delicious chocolate cake in the room, nothing seemed to much trouble even grinding fresh coffee for us. The rooms very high spec with very comfortable beds and high quality toiletries. Breakfast include fresh fruit and a choice of cooked meals.
A short distance from the centre of hanmer, and that gives great peace quiet and glorious views

Stayed December 2013, travelled with family

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

We visited to celebrate my birthday and were very impressed! Lovely to meet the Highland cows Cyndi, Dolly and ''Nameless?'' so cute! And the dogs Zappa and Panda were delightful! We felt very comfortable in room 3 and it was lovely and warm. We were made very welcome and felt very relaxed throughout our stay. Breakfast was amazing, we could pretty much choose what we wanted and Kimberly was very accommodating for my vegetarian diet, we were both stuffed ready for the rest of our day. It was a shame that my husband hit his head on the shower screen frame, it was much lower than his 6'2'' and he hit it after reaching for the towel-whoops! This is the only niggle we had really, will definitely return to this idyllic setting, thanks Kimberly! :)

Room Tip: Mind your head on the shower screen if you are tall :)

This was a lovely place to stay just out of the busy hanmer springs town and is perfect for a weekend getaway! The Hosts and the Breakfast were wonderful and the room was cozy and spacious. Had a lovely time and wish to be back again :)
