The good stuff: Large bedroom and a huge bathroom. Basics are all good. View is great. Breakfast is their point of difference and they do it very well. Owners are friendly and and nice people. The other stuff: The grounds need a good tidy. There were wine glasses but no plates for nibbles. The bathroom was big but the shelf... More

My partner and I came here after spending a somewhat heart-wrenching and stressful time in Chch itself dealing with family issues and a family member suffering from cancer. We had flown down specifically for family but had treated ourselves to a stay out here in Hamner Springs as I personally had never been there before. It was AMAZING!!! We stayed... More

Set in immaculate grounds looking out over stunning scenery, the accommodation is spacious, luxurious and artistically decorated.

We were here just for one night and we were graciously welcomed by our hosts. Our booking did have a computer hic up but was handled in the most professional manner. A very quiet location, very clean rooms and a breakfast to die for! I recommended this location to our travel agent to be put on her A list

Managed to find this at short notice and was very impressed by the set up. Away from the main street, you'll love lying in the spa, watching the sun set, and then the night sky over a glass. Kids really liked walking around the open space too... and then came breakfast. Long story short: breakfast was fantastic and amazed that... More

(One Bread and jam)? 2)No mention that it was only a B.B. 3)A dog in the bedroom leaving hair behind after having a hair cut. Dog roaming the kitchen where the food was being made. Also while we...

We are sorry this customer had a bad experience. We are sorry she chose to not read things correctly. The deal brought was for Albergo B&B!!! The upgrade was to another room which was not part of the deal. The guests still received $100.00 discount on this room! in order to stay the night she wanted. Our breakfasts are 3... More

You can be sure of a warm, welcome when you stay with Linz and Jo at this superb location set beneath the spectacular mountains of Hanmer Springs.
