We stayed 4 nights at The St James and can’t rate it highly enough. We had a ground floor apartment that was spacious and warm. West facing so the afternoon sun poured in. A great location in easy walking distance of the village and the hot pools. Would definitely stay here again.

Having just been to Hanmer with two other couple for three nights we would like to recommend St James. From the time we arrived we were made very welcome, and especially during the power cut we were looked after exceptionally well for five hours during the evening. The motel is very handy to restaurants, shops, hot pools etc. All within walking distance. We will be back again soon it is a lovely place to relax and unwind. Well done. Thanks Jan.
