“Great Location in Hanmer!”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

I had a lovely stay here, I was also pleasantly suprised at how close it was to everything. Literally a 2min walk - it was great!
I really enjoyed the garden setting and listening to the birds - it was very peaceful.
Also lovely room, very comfortable and friendly owners :)

Nice quiet place on the street just opposite the hot springs. Close enough but yet still quiet and peaceful. We stayed there on our first night in NZ and the homely feeling was just fantastic. It was a good place to relax and unwind after a long flight. Kerry was really friendly and even Millie(the dog) made us feel well come with an impromptu game of fetch early in the morning. We will stay here again if we ever visit Hanmer Springs again.

Hi there .
It was great to have you stay with us earlier this month. We hope the rest of your honeymoon went well and you took away some great memories of New Zealand - as well as Hanmer. Hope you enjoyed the rugby while you were here!! If you are ever back this way again we hope you will look us up...

We stayed here for a night in 2009 and vowed we would come back. Our three nights in early November 2011 reaffirmed our view that this is very comfortable and great value accommodation. Only 2 studio units in a garden setting, very comfy bed, fully equipped kitchen including your own washing machine, wide flat screen tv with a large range of Sky channels, very quick free wireless, and if that's not enough a great spa bath in the bathroom.

A screen door for the shower would be a useful addition. Otherwise perfect and amazingly good value. Nice hosts....and yummy home baked cake in your unit. What more could you ask for.

We will be back.

Room Tip: Best tip. Book early for the best rate and remember there are only two units

We have stayed at the Harrogate Gardens many times now and always find it excellent in every way. Phillipa is lovely, friendly and always happy to have a chat. She bakes gorgeous cakes and slices and pops then in your room each day of your stay, stores our bikes for us and is so welcoming. The unit is always immaculate and comfy. We love the place.

My friend and I stayed here for the weekend for a mini break and loved it here. The owners were lovely there was even a yummy slice for us. DVD collection wasn't too bad either. Will definitely be back again.

Could hardly recommend this place more: comfortable, warm, and with home made cookies on arrival. What more could you need?
