Close to all amenities and great local knowledge of places to eat and of course the Spa and Thermal Pools. Towels in a bag provided for Pools which is an excellent service. Really appreciate it. The room was very warm with lovely underfloor heating and a spa bath which was very comfortable for two people

We have stayed here several times & will go back. Paul & Rae are great hosts, the rooms are lovely and spacious. You can self cater if you will but also plenty of restaurants & cafes on your door step. Most rooms have a view of the reserve & ranges. I can highly recommend this property .

The St James has got to be the cleanest place we have ever stayed. The service was exceptional and the local advice was invaluable. We were told the places to book for dinner and they were incredible! It is in a great location close to everything, yet quiet. We loved the eco partnership they are involved with to plant native trees in exchange for room servicing. Definitely the place to stay in Hanmer Springs

This was our second visit to the St James and it was just as perfect as the previous time. Lovely warm greeting by Rae. The room was immaculately clean. Everything you could need was provided. Super comfy bed and so quiet! We will certainly be back again!
