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

My wife and I stayed one night here in mid March. Everything was excellent and the hosts could not have been better. The room was gorgeous with a fireplace. It was the room right as you entered the house (can't remember the name). The "private bathroom" was down the hall so not ensuite. Two highlights were wine in the billiards... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in february. Enjoyed the heritage charm of the house and the peace of the garden, great breakfasts, and especially the very enjoyable and social evening drinks on the patio with the hosts and other guests. Walking on the nearby trails- and soaking in the thermal pools was great too.

We enjoyed just one night at Cheltenham House while on a motorcycle tour, and found it to be completely comfortable. The Hosts, Maree and Len, are fantastic, and we enjoyed their nightly cocktail party for their guests immensely. Easy walk to the springs and restaurants, and breakfast arrives in your room! We only regret we didn't have time to stay... More

After being away nearly a month our final stay was Cheltenham House which was such a treat we stayed another night. From the hot tub, to the annex in our room with armchairs and a table for our breakfast, to the billiard room which on one chilly night had the fire going. To our delightful hosts Len & Marie who...
