My wife and I eventually managed to stay at the St James, after lockdowns scuppered our plans in 2020.
The staff were very pleasant, and the accommodation was modern and well appointed. It is right in the centre of town, so just a stroll to cafés, restaurants and of course the hot pools.
We hope to return soon!

Paul & Rae were very friendly. We were shown to our accommodation which was impressive as in large rooms lounge and kitchen.
Nice modern facilities, perfectly located.

We had a ground floor which opened up onto park like grounds. 2 minute walk to the pools and all the shops.

I would definitely stay at The St James again.

The room was a nice surprise with a lovely balcony and sun streaming in.
When we booked we were advised there was a two night minimum but they did allow us a one night stay.
A stone throw from MK restaurant which is absolutely worth a visit.

We stayed one night booking in last minute as hubby had hurt his back and we wanted somewhere with a spa in the room and a comfy bed. The St James delivered both. Jan on reception was so friendly when I phoned to book direct and even friendlier when we arrived, if that was possible. Fantastic customer service! Beautifully appointed and very clean room. We will definitely stay there again when we visit Hanmer Springs.

We had the most amazing stay in a very comfortable room with a spa bath, the bed was super comfy and the room was spotless.
The staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcomed.
The best thing about the St James is how close it is to everything, with shops, restaurants and pools within walking distance.

Room tip: We had room 206 right in the middle so had amazing views
