We were walk-ins and greeted and welcomed with great warmth. Advising us how The St James could accommodate our needs for the weekend came naturally to Rae. Quality of service and the motel room 'at it's best'. This is a new establishment and we wish everyone at The St James all the very best. On our return visit (hope not in the too distant future) to Hanmer Springs, my husband and I will certainly return to The St James.

A weekend away without the children was going to be relaxing anyway - and the St James in Hanmer was clearly the place to do it!! The view from the balcony was postcard perfect. The room was luxuroius and a great place to spend a rainy afternoon. The room was well appointed - we could have cooked a meal in, but opted to eat out following the advice from the wonderful Rae! A late check out was no problem. The service and welcome provided by Rae and Paul was exceptional - everything was exceptional. Even as we drove away we got a huge wave and a "Thank you for staying". I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. You've just got to check it out!!

This hotel has just recently opened, everything is new. The room decor is very tasteful and the fittings, furniture, bathroom etc is all of a high standard. We really enjoyed our stay, the room was a good size with a private balcony. Hotel owner was very friendly, situated really centrally in Hanmer as well. We will definately stay there again, if you pay a bit more you expect a bit more from the suite/hotel and they delivered.

My husband and i took a long weekend away to visit Hanmer Springs and settled on accommodation at the newly opened St James. Understanding that it had only been open a few weeks we were expecting a few hiccups but were pleasantly surprised that not only was the venue itself perfectly presented and the rooms beautifully kitted out but everything that we required was ready and available for the asking. Every item in the rooms had been carefully thought out to give the sense of a luxury - from the under floor heated tiling and heat pump, to the decandently made up bed with huge soft pillows to the robert harris coffee complete with Zip plunger. My highlight was waking up to the sound of birdsong from the park that the hotel overlooks, a very relaxing start to the day. Everything

The St James is so new & clean that I didn't want to touch anything for fear of messing it up! It is exceptionally tidy and modern, and I was surprised at how many features you get for your travel dollar. We stayed in an upstairs unit, which was very large and had a queen bed. The large windows let in lots of sunlight (but with thick curtains, easily able to block it out if required) and the door slid open to step out onto a pleasent balcony with table & chairs. There are too many features to possibly list: All the usuals like a self-contained kitchen, wardrobe, bedside tables, and desk. But it's the extras that really set it apart... For instance, I've never seen a filtered water tap at any hotel/motel I've stayed in. The LCD television had digital reception on all
