Fantastic accommodation in a very central location. The room was very well equipped including a dishwasher! The hosts were very friendly. We would certainly recommend St James to anyone travelling to Hanmer Springs.

Hotel's Favourite
Excellent accommodation with extras such as spa bath and heated floors. Right in town but very quiet with lovely views of the hills - perfect for sunset wines on the balcony. Spotlessly clean and elegant decor. Would recommend an upstairs room.

We were warmly greeted by both Rae and Paul who were not only friendly but also full of great tips and advice for us which helped us during our stay. Nothing seemed too much for them and the guest compendium included a lot more information than we usually see in hotels. They seem to have thought of a lot of extra details which would be of value to travellers. We would have no hesitation in staying there again or in reccommending it to friends and family.

We were delighted when we were shown to our accommodation in the Mount Isobel Suite at the St. James. Beautiful, clean, comfortable rooms, well stocked with everything we wanted. Right in the heart of town with easy access to great walks. We look forward to returning some day.

The St James was a fantastic place to stay in Hanmer Springs. The hosts were really lovely and the room was spotless. Only a walk into town and not far to the pools. We would certainly not hesitate to stay again.
