lovely B&B in central Hanmer, three of the unites are self contained suits in the beautiful garden. Excellent breakfasts cooked by Len and served by Maree in our suite. Evening drinks on theTerrace in the sunshine. The only suggestion would be to improve the wifi signal but this is minor compared to the quality of the accommodation and service.

We stayed here for 1 night on our Motorcycle tour of New Zealand. The hosts were so welcoming and invited all the guests for pre-dinner drinks in their billiard room. It was interesting to be introduced to other guests staying here and have the opportunity to chat with them. The room was very spacious and breakfast was served in our... More

The family hosting this B&B is extremely friendly and truely interested to make every guest's stay a memorable one. I would recommend this location to everyone who is not too price sensitive. The in-room breakfast is wonderful as well

We stayed at Cheltenham House for our Wedding Anniversary. Len & Maree were so welcoming. Nothing is a problem. Thoroughly enjoyed a tour of the house. Evening drinks were a highlight chatting to other guests while enjoying fine NZ wine. Can't wait to stay again.

We stayed at a beautiful holiday home run by Cheltenham house called 17 on Rutherford Crescent. This house was so lovely, very comfortable and warm. Lots of room for couples wanting the perfect time away, with a short walk to town. This was a girls trip and suited us perfectly, would stay there again. Beds were very comfortable, would recommend... More

This was my third time at Cheltenham House with Len and Maree, I don't bother booking anywhere else when I'm in Hanmer Springs. After being greeted warmly by Maree we were taken up to the twin room upstairs which we had booked. The room was tastefully decorated, warm and there was milk in the fridge for your tea. Maree makes... More

We have stayed at Cheltenham several times over the past few years and have never been disappointed by the hospitality shown by Maree and Len, from the evening gathering with wine at 1830 to the beautifully prepared breakfast, we have always felt welcomed and pampered. We also seem to always sleep late when staying here, something that we are not... More

We felt welcomed and spoilt by Len at Cheltenham House. This is a character filled property in a quiet spot but right in the heart of Hanmer Springs. Everything is walking distance from here, so you can enjoy it all. We stayed in the Rutherford room, a lovely room with breakfast table overlooking the garden. The breakfast was lovely and... More
