We were greeted very pleasantly by our host. Our room was an unexpected and very pleasant surprise. It was large, modern and nicely furnished. The bathroom was also large with a shower and spa bath. We had everything we needed and were only a 5 minute walk from the main street. All very comfortable and convenient. Many thanks!

Easy walk to Thermal Pools, visited at end of afternoon and into the evening, quieter time and lovely with the night sky. The hosts provide towels for the pool. Advise you take flip flops to wear at pool as cold on your feet ! The room at Scarborough Lodge was good size, including kitchenette, table and chairs. Milk and tea/coffee... More

Stayed here for one night whilst in Hanmer Springs and found it to be delightful. The studio is spacious and has everything you could possibly need for an overnight. The room and bathroom were spotless and little extras like complimentary toiletries and a small milk in the fridge are nice touches. The gardens and street are peaceful and the bars/restaurants...

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
