Short stop over in Hanmer Springs was made much more enjoyable by the stay at the excellent Marchmont Gardens. Bindi was a superb host and the breakfast was absolutely amazing. Lovely room and beautiful surroundings - highly recommended!

What a fantastic place to stay. The room was just gorgeous - spacious, spotless and sunny - and the garden setting is beautiful. Breakfast was delicious, complete with homemade preserves and a fabulous rhubarb & berry compote. So good I came home inspired to make my own!

Bindi & Peter were very welcoming. The highlight for us was that we could take our wee Miniature Schnauzer (we rang ahead and checked, he travels with his own crate to sleep in). Bindi made a real fuss over him, even bringing out a wee toy for him to play with. Lovely, lovely place - will definitely stay there again. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: There are only two units, next to each other & looking out over the garden.

Thanks for your hospitality Bindi. The room was beautiful and breakfast was so awesome that I took a photo. The room had everything you could possibly ask for including a huge range of DVD's. I totally recommend Marchmont if you are lucky enough to get a booking.

We had a wonderful stay at the Marchmont Gardens. The room was immaculately presented, a very good size and was extremely clean. The host was very nice and the attention to detail is the best I have seen. The breakfast the next day was extremely good. I have stayed in hundreds of hotels and B&Bs all over the world and this would be one of the best. In fact it is the first time I have bothered to put a comment on trip advisor. Definitely worth a visit. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Bindi and Peter were excellent hosts and we had a brilliant time. Luxuriously appointed accommodation in beautiful surroundings. Bindi is a lovely cook with home made preserves and the nibbles and breakfast were sensational.
Very quiet location but only a short (10 - 15 mins) stroll into the centre of town and the hot springs.
Very highly recommended.

Modern, private, comfortable...a perfect relaxing retreat.
The gardens were so beautiful we didn't even want to go out and about and the breakfast was amazing, I would fully recommend anyone to stay here.

Thank you for your review. Value for money is always better if you book for breakfast instead of deciding to have breakfast on the last day as you get wine and nibbles for a two day stay as well as bedside goodies!

Our friends treated us to an overnight stay in this beautifully maintained oasis of tranquility. We were made to feel most welcome by Bindy. The lovelly touches such as a piece of cake by the bed, jug of fresh milk to go with your tea and coffee rather than tiny plastic contains suggest much thought has gone into the welcome. Breakfast, what can I say it was elegantly presented and extremely tasty. It didn't hurt that all this was situated with views ti die for.
