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

What a fantastic B&B in the heart of stunning Hanmer. Len & Marie are wonderful special hosts that will make you feel welcome and at home from the very start. An easy walk to the hot pools, fantastic restaurants and many attractions. If you are even remotely considering a stay here, then click the reservation button and book your room... 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...

This is an excellent bed and breakfast. The location is close to both town and walking trails. At 6:30PM each day, the host and hostess gathered with many of the guests to enjoy before-dinner wine. They helped us make a last-minute dinner reservation on New Years Eve. A huge and delicious breakfast was served in our room. Everything was fabulous.

We were greeted by a very warm and friendly lady and shown to an extremely comfortable room which had everything we could want. The internet connection was excellent. We were recommended a restaurant for dinner which was superb and within walking distance. The hot pools are within walking distance. Our room was quiet, which my husband really appreciated.
