Staying at Cheltenham House is homely luxury. Not the clinical show off type, but is the pamper deep sigh relax B&B that doesn't disappoint even with multiple visits. Gracious residence and hosts, Len and Mariee. Yummy breakfast choices all included. Only a couple of minutes walk to the hot pools, shops & dining in one direction and stunning walks in...

The hosts are amazing, contacting us prior to arrival with the room prepared, personal recommendations on places to eat. The room was smart and good size. Breakfast is very good with a good choice. We decided to take part in the drinks in the evening and this provided a great opportunity to chat with hosts and fellow holidayers. Very close...

The room we had was very spacious, yet warm and cozy and beautifully refurbished. Just a very short stroll to the restaurants and pools it couldn't have been a better location yet it was quiet down a side street.

A much more pleasant way to enjoy a stay in Hanmer than a motel. Maree and Len are excellent hosts and have restored and maintained an original homestead to an excellent standard. Pre-dinner drinks sampling local Waipara wines and a traditional cooked breakfast were the icing on cake.We will be back!

Cheltenham House is beautifully refurbished, the rooms are warm, spacious and very comfortable and Maree and Len are gracious and generous hosts. The Hanmer Springs thermal pools are just across the road and the property is within easy walking distance of restaurants, cafes and shops. Thank you both for a very enjoyable stay.

I had a wonderful stay here. They provide the most amazing breakfast options, delivered to your room, served and layed out elegantly. There was just too much food: my cooked breakfast of pancakes (8 of them!), as well as toast, jams, fruit, tea and anything else I could have wanted. The room was beautifully appointed and the high-end quality shmapoo,...

This is a delightful hotel in an excellent location. It is personally run by a lovely couple called Len & Maree who are charming and so helpful.
