“Wonderful stay in Hanmer Springs”
Reviewed March 5, 2011

We stayed with Pete and Bindy at Marchmont Gardens for five nights. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at their lovely home. The guest room we stayed in opens to their gorgeous gardens and views of the mountains. The room was very well appointed and comfortable. Our hosts invited us over for drinks multiple times and we thoroughly enjoyed conversing with them. Overall I would stay here again and would highly recommend others to stay at Marchmont Gardens.

My wife and I stayed at Marchmont Gardens for 1 night on 19 January. We stayed in 13 B&B's during our holiday on South Island in January 2011. Most were excellent, but only one had the WOW factor - Marchmont Gardens. It was booked on 4 December from home in the UK using the tripadvisor reviews at that time. I have now read the recent reviews and all I can do is to endorse all that has been stated. Everything was so perfect - the initial welcome, the accomodation, the lovely garden, the pre-dinner "welcome " , the evening fruit cake and the delicious breakfast served very promptly in our "suite".

My wife and I stayed at this excellent B&B for 2 nights. We have been travelling in NZ for 5 weeks and stayed > 20 B&B but Marchmont Gardens is the no ONE from all aspects. The hostpitality and care was great. The room had top quality from all aspects and we really appreciated that the hosts helped us to get the most out from our stay.
We highly recomend a stay here. We will definitely come back if we visit NZ and South Island again

My wife and I stayed in the Mt Isobel unit for our 10th wedding anniversary. Host, Bindi, was very welcoming and full of great advice about things to do in and around Hanmer Springs.

The unit was very clean and tidy with a much better ambience than a traditional hotel. The gardens of course were wonderful. We were sitting in the garden and were visited by a friendly hedgehog who obviously lived in the garden along with all the birds and delightful plants.

Service was impecable. The cooked breakfast was scrummy and the 5pm drinks with cheeses etc was great.

Only suggested improvement we would have is to add a small rubbish tin in the bathroom. Other than that, everything was spot on.

Pete and Bindy Moore have brought great style and energy to their delightful 2 unit Bed&Breakfast. The breakfast option should not be missed. Bindy's high energy and love of the land is to be seen in her garden. You join this world for too short a time but you will come back if life allows! Make time! What a perfect holiday break with our friends Hans and Dorothy from Germany.
Wonderfuly hospitable hosts.

The apartment was beautifully designed and spacious. The breakfast was fantastic and the surroundings and view of the mountains was spectacular! To stay here one or two nights is a great experience.

Absolutely perfect - Pete and Bindy know how to do B&B! Elegant, modern, and comfortable rooms (separate from the house) that overlook the beautiful gardens and the mountains. Fantastic service from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Delicious breakfast with both a hot and a cold option. Bikes are available to use - to get into town or to the themal pools. Great location off the main road but still very close to town, the pools, and the walking paths. Lots of little extras that make Marchmont Gardens stand out - fresh flowers in the bathroom, homemade cookies in the room, a drawer full of DVDs and games, a beach bag in the closet to take to the pools, and overall fantastic, warm, and inviting service. If possible I would have extended my stay!
