Unfortunately we only had one night here which was a great shame. The accommodation is beautiful and spacious with lovely views over the gardens. The little kitchenette is great and the choices of teas were pretty extensive. There is a lovely dining table for breakfast and a little sitting area near the tv so you can enjoy the extensive range...

The service was great with nibbles and wine as well as two scrumptious breakfasts. We were able to have our little bichon dog with us and it was...

Lovely, comfortable B&B with a delicious breakfast and wonderful views of the mountains. Lovely peaceful garden setting. Short, easy walk into Hanmer township. Couldn't ask for anything more - would definitely recommend and stay again. Perfect.

Our stay at the Marchmont was fantastic. Our host Bindy was on hand to provide a welcoming reception and tour of the lovely gardens. The mountain views and the gardens provided a relaxing background to our visit. Its proximity to the golf course (150m away) was an added bonus. The accommodation unit was luxurious and well appointed. The kitchen was...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review they are most important for us. Yes the kitchenette is small it was all we could do to squeeze that passed the council so as not to make it another dwelling(full kitchen) Of course we are principally a Bed and Breakfast

What a beautifully place to spent 2 days at the end of 10 travelling around the South Island. The garden and mountain views were so relaxing. Bindy was so helpful with useful tips about the Hanmer Springs. Will definitely be back.

Recently had a great stay at Marchmont gardens. The room was large and nicely furnished, the view of the gardens and the surrounding mountains was perfect. When we first arrived we were greeted by Bindy, the owner/operator. She had arranged a bottle of bubbly and a great platter of food and helped us with selection of a restaurant for dinner....
