Super clean and tidy. Can not fault one thing. Clean towels, tea, coffee and milk in the fridge on arrival. All the equipment you need like iron, hair dryer and cooking utensils, everything looked new! The owner was very friendly and welcoming. Thanks soo much for making our stay a good one. Will definitely use again if in hanmer.

We stayed for only one night in Hanmer Springs. The host, Graeme, was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was spacious and well appointed with a kitchen and spa bath. It was in a good walking distance to the Thermal Pools and also to the restaurants in town. We went for eating to Malabar, which was... More

We had 2 nights at this lodge recently and were very impressed! The rooms are well laid out and spacious and the hosts have tried to think of everything a traveller might need with toiletries in the bathroom, a spa bath and plenty of 'pool towels' for our visits to the thermal springs, just a short distance away! The rooms... More

We had a brief but enjoyable 1 night stay here. Nice and quiet place and awesome spa bath. Very comfortable bed too. We walked around to the Hermitage for breakfast and that was a great choice. Thanks Graeme we will return.

No worries with wonderful weather, bike rides and dining at the local Corianders Indian restaurant. Our hosts Graeme and Karima were unobtrusive and helpful in charming way. Our room had a peaceful indoor outdoor flow. Spacious and clean with good attention to detail. The bed was comfortable and firm. The electric blanket was a treat as we always turn off... More

A boutique style accommodation, very well located within easy walking distance of town but far away enough to be quiet, on the edge of the forrest. There are two spacious rooms, a large and clean comfy bed and the apartment is fitted with everything we needed for a short stay in Hanmer. The host is really welcoming, and gave us... More

Me and my partner stayed here in January 2012 for the night and it was just lovely. A nice quick walk to the pools made it close to town yet still it was still far enough away to feel secluded from the busy area. Lovely big room with kitchen, dining area and outdoor area made it much nicer than any... More

The Scarborough lodge is more than "just a room", and we could have easily extended our stay if we had not made other plans. We felt that the room was decently priced as it included free Wifi and separate spa towels. What really impressed was the size of the room, with cooking facilities, massive bed and all the necessities. Also... More

A short walk from the most amazing Hanmer hot pools, the best thing about this nice place was the hosts who were wonderful. We followed their recommendation to go up the nearby hill and to visit the hot pools (we'd have driven on and missed them otherwise) and had a brilliant time.

As per a previous review, at first glance Scarborough Lodge does not look anything special but as the old adage goes, "You can't judge a book by it's cover" it certainly applies here. We were greeted by a neighbour who was standing in for the absentee owners for the afternoon. I am so sorry I can't remember her name but... More
