This is our second stay at Cheltenham House, and we found it as charming as the first. Maree and Len, our hosts, are gracious and attentive. The guest facilities are comfortable and tasteful, with antique furniture and original art. Our suite is amply resourced and warm, the garden well tended and charming in its autumn colours. The attractively cooked breakfast set us up beautifully for the day's adventures. The property is quiet, secluded, and yet less than a block from the village centre. Forest walks and cycling opportunities abound. Altogether, it made for a very satisfying two-day stay. We will be back!
We had a wonderful time at Cheltenham House. We stayed in one of the garden rooms, which was very nicely decorated, and had everything we needed (including a comfortable bed). Great to have the little extras like underfloor heating, robes, and towels for the hot pools. When we arrived, we were greeted by Marie (one of the owners) who is very friendly and welcoming. The location is excellent - so close to walk to local restaurants, hot pools and shops. We would definitely stay at Cheltenham House again if we return to Hanmer Springs.
Just a one night stopover and this place was superb. We stayed in one of the garden units. Nicely appointed and the service on arrival was fantastic. Nice and close to everything you could want in Hamner. Well worth staying.
We stayed here for the first time after going to Hamner for years. There is nowhere better to stay. The hosts were so welcoming, the room was warm and cozy. Faultless. See you again next year for our winter break.
We loved this place and wish we could have stayed longer. Marie, the owner, and her husband, take their roles very seriously. You can tell that their guests’ comfort is their top priority. We stayed in one of the two cottages. It was delightful. Tastefully furnished and very comfortable. Breakfast is brought to you in your room. The choices are amazing—pancakes, eggs, fruit, toast, juice, coffee/tea. It was such a treat to have that wonderful breakfast brought to us. Oh, and I shouldn’t forget to mention the happy hour with NZ wines. It’s a great chance to meet your fellow travelers.
