We have stayed several times at this hotel and it is excellent. If you want somewhere nice and quiet with a nice view, beautiful garden, excellent service then this is the place. Bindy and Peter make you feel like part of their family. Bindy shows every attention to detail and explains everything about the amenities and what is available in... More

The rooms are modern, clean and very warm. Friendly hosts who provide a delicious breakfast! The room has lovely garden and mountain views yet is very private. This was our third time here on a kid free weekend away - and will definitely be back again!

We stayed at Marchmont Gardens over a weekend in Hanmer, unfortunately I was sick with the flu so was not able to go out mountain biking as planned. But that didn't matter because we had such a nice place to stay in - perfect for whiling away the afternoon and evening reading, watching the generous library of DVDs, enjoying a... More

Wow ! thank you for a fantastic review, I had to go and check to see if you could see the TV from the bath might have to do it myself one of these cold winter nights. All our snow has gone but has clouded over and more due tomorrow. More

Marchmont exceeded my expectations by far! The place is beautifully decorated with modern touches in the fixtures, spotlessly clean and so very homey. Bindy is an excellent hostess and her kiwi style breakfast was out of this world delicious!!! She is also very thoughtful. She has brochures and area maps for the tourists to guide the way, a beach towel... More

Great room, beautiful gardens, excellent host. We booked one night and stayed for two, it's that good. The host is friendly & accomodating. The environment is serene. It's close to town, which has many eateries, and an excellent hot pool complex.

We have been to Hanmer many times and Marchmont Gardens has been the best accommodation we have stayed in. We loved our room(Isobel Suite) and the bathroom was amazing. The peace and quiet of the location was relaxing especially looking out to the gardens. Bindy was very friendly and helpful. We are looking forward to the next time.

This is the place to stay as a couple, gorgeous and very accommodating. We were greeted with a smile and shown to our stunning suite which was far more beautiful than the photos can capture. The host was very helpful providing recommendations for food and activities but allowed us all the privacy you would expect in a hotel. She was... More
