This was our 4th stay here and it was as good as ever. Always a friendly welcome, and the rooms are very comfortable. Offering towels for the hot springs is a great extra service. An ideal location tops off the St James as the place to stay in Hanmer.

Yet again a fabulous stay at The St James. Room was spotless, we were early for check in and were rung as soon as our room was ready which was super helpful. Pool towels are such a bonus. Brilliant location for walking to the pools and restaurants.

We chanced upon the St James during one night stay and enjoyed the whole experience such that I suspect it will make us a regular to Hamner Springs in the future. We loved the sizable bathroom with under floor heating, the outlook, and superb location which will undoubtedly bring us back again.
