Due to a change of plans we ended up having 2 nights here after our original one night stay booking - SO pleased we had the 2 nights as it really is a very special place. Great room, clean, warm, and so conveniently located. Only negative was not getting to enjoy the dumpling restaurant as it was booked out both nights, so tip is to book this before you arrive.

So pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. It's a shame you couldn't get into MK the dumpling restaurant, it is very popular and advance bookings are definitely advised as per your advice.

We loved our weekend at St. James. The staff was awesome from check in to tcheck out. Spacious rooms with great mountain views. Very handy location in Hanmer Springs for walking to the pools and restaurants. Will be here again.

Awesome stay at The St James. Jan was very friendly and attentive. Upon check-in, she made sure that the room was pristine and even offered us some towels to use at the pools! We only stayed overnight but will definitely come back soon!
