This was a top rate experience - from the warm greeting on arrival to the parking, studio room, beds, bathroom - and outside seating positioned to enjoy the late afternoon sun. The other feature was just how quiet the building is - while we knew from cars parked there were other guests in residence - not a bathroom or bedroom sound was heard!

Room tip: Highly recommended

This was our 4th stay here and it was as good as ever. Always a friendly welcome, and the rooms are very comfortable. Offering towels for the hot springs is a great extra service. An ideal location tops off the St James as the place to stay in Hanmer.

Yet again a fabulous stay at The St James. Room was spotless, we were early for check in and were rung as soon as our room was ready which was super helpful. Pool towels are such a bonus. Brilliant location for walking to the pools and restaurants.

Room tip: Upstairs rooms have more privacy, ground floor rooms need the sheer curtains pulled for privacy.

The room was perfect to come back to and warm up and unwind in after exploring the cold mountains, with only a short walk to get food and have a beer. The friendly staff were welcoming from the moment we entered reception to the day we checked out. 10/10 from us and will be back to stay again!

Room tip: all rooms had great views of snow capped mountains
