Hanmer Springs, New Zealand

A Very Lucky find in North Canterbury

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 29 Dec 2023via mobile
Very Pleasantly greeted upon arrival and made to feel most welcome.
A way more comprehensive menu than expected but then we had very recently heard great reviews of the restaurant food and lovely decor.
He chose Ribs and really enjoyed them and Salads served with.I did the Stone Grill as I love a Steak!
Our small dining partner said her Burger was great and enjoyed the mini donuts and ice cream.
All our meals were served promptly and on well thought out Crockery.
My Steak was spectacular and trust me I know my Steaks!
So good to be able to eat a hot Steak very Rare!
We are lucky to have The Hurunui in our area and will certainly be back.
Date of stay: December 2023

Stopped in after leaving Hanma Springs for a little look but ended up staying because the staff were beautiful and friendly. We ended up sitting down for a meal and it was 10/10 food! Beautiful scenery and an all round great vibe. Loved it so much, will definitely stop in in the future when we’re in the area

This Hotel has an amazing camping ground attached. It is in a fantastic location. Powered sites with a reasonable ablution block and kitchen area. The bar and restaurant are fabulous and the staff are wonderful.

Room tip: First in first served for the camping ground. The hotel rooms are lovely as is the general surroundings. The food is really great.

We stopped in at the Hurunui Hotel on the way north from Christchurch, and stayed in their beautiful Jesse's Cottage. A delightful mix of old world stone cottage charm with well appointed modern fixtures in the kitchen and bathroom.
The historic hotel bar and restaurant has a warm cosy pub atmosphere, and I can highly recommend the home smoked stonegrill ribeye for dinner! Wonderful people, great hospitality, and awesome NZ find!

We stayed in Jesse's Cottage, which was clean and comfortable and nicely combined old-world charm and modern convenience. Lovely peaceful location surrounded by fields and grapevines - the only sounds were from the cattle and the birds. We chose to have dinner at the hotel both nights of our stay because the stone grilled pork and lamb meals were so tasty. Quality meat and fun to cook it ourselves on the hot stone at our table. Accompanied by good sides and drink selection - with very decadent desserts! The service was friendly and efficient, even though the staff were clearly very busy on one night. Couldn't have asked for more.

Room tip: Jesse's Cottage is wonderful

Popped in on way to hanmer, and so pleased we did. The food was so good and the owners really friendly and welcoming. Shared the half ribs and schnitzel. Both awesome. Well priced and tasty food, nice setting and good drinks selection. Definitely be back. Chips were the best had in a long time.
