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!

We both totally enjoy staying at the St James. It's completely comfortable, so very warm in winter, totally clean and tidy and so convenient to all that Hanmer has to offer. We have been before and we will be back again.

Due to a change of plans we ended up having 2 nights here after our original one night stay booking - SO pleased we had the 2 nights as it really is a very special place. Great room, clean, warm, and so conveniently located. Only negative was not getting to enjoy the dumpling restaurant as it was booked out both nights, so tip is to book this before you arrive.

So pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. It's a shame you couldn't get into MK the dumpling restaurant, it is very popular and advance bookings are definitely advised as per your advice.
