There are no adequate words to describe how fabulous this place is! Beautiful rooms throughout, nice thoughtful touches everywhere, wonderful views, sumptuous meals, and -- the best part -- the kindest and most unforgettable hosts, Lisa and Chris. They made our stay the most memorable. I would return in a heartbeat!

We loved Amuri Estate, from the warmest of welcomes from our hosts to the gorgeous cottage set amongst olive groves. So much love and attention has gone into this fabulous retreat. The only place to stay in Hamner. I highly recommend .

My wife and I enjoyed three great days in Hanmer Springs staying at Chris & Lisa's wonderful retreat. We were made to feel welcome from the start, and found we had a lot in common, and as is typical in New Zealand, there are only one or two degrees of separation before you find you have friends and places in...

What a wonderful view from Wallace Cottage! Such a peaceful location to spend the last couple of days of our holiday unwinding & relaxing before our trip home & the made rush before Christmas. Very comfortable bed & pillows and lovely pampering bathroom products. Breakfast provisions were amazing. Lisa is a great host and made lots of fantastic suggestions about... More

This was the first B and B we stayed in during our holiday in New Zealand: it was really fantastic. We had a very warm reception by Lisa and Chris: we felt at home immediately. The room was impeccable, the view stunning. We liked a lot having a wonderful breakfast together with them and having very pleasant and interesting talks.... More

Beautifully appointed resort style accomodation. Complimentary towels for the thermal pools and pre-heated, exceptionally clean room. Would stay here again for a couple of nights to enjoy it more as we only stayed one night.

We stayed in Wallace Cottage which had spectacular views. Lisa and Chris are the perfect hosts to this beautiful home away from home. Sensational breakfast was supplied , we loved the log burner and stunning views from the dining table. Highly recommend and will be back again.

It was great meeting you both and so glad that you enjoyed yourselves in the cottage. The weather offered you a sunny day for getting in a walk up Dunblane ridge & a soak in the pools afterwards. Perfect time of year for a cosy night in by the log fire too! We look forward to having you come back!... More

Lisa and Chris are fantastic hosts. While we only stayed one night we relished in their relaxing environment. Provided with unbelievable views, first-rate amenities, a delicious breakfast, and expert advice on New Zealand, we were blown away. Would highly recommend this.

This is so well named as a "Retreat" - absolute five star luxury. The warmth of the welcome, the exquisite décor of Wallace Cottage, the totally quiet and private accommodation and the just scrummy breakfast all contributed to a really delightful stay. We will be back again thank you to Chris and Lisa

Gosh where do i start, i will say the most memorable things are the Quiet, peace, tranquillity, view, olive tree groves, with the room being impeccably clean and well looked after. Service is notable for being flawless and i can happily say my time of three nights there was way to short as i did not want to leave. Highly... More
