Really comfortable big studio-like room. Nicely equipped kitchen. Really comfortable bed. Very quiet. Walking distance to everything in the town. Didn't use the spa facilities due to time constraints but will if we come back. Highly recommended.

Scarborough Lodge located in a quiet street, one block from the main thoroughfare was an easy walk to the shops, eating establishments and the Mineral Springs Centre. The host was very friendly and helpful. There was attention to detail in meeting all our needs in the kitchen, the bathroom and the living/bed area. The unit was clean and spacious, the...

This was our second stay at Scarborough Lodge. The facilities are very keen and the staff were very helpful.Phillipa graciously volunteered to launder and dry our dirty clothes. The lodge is close to hiking paths, the thermal baths, restaurants, etc.

The room we had was very cosy and bright and had a big bathroom with shower and whirlpool. The cottage is situated at the end of a very quiet street, no noise at all. It is also very close to the Thermal Spa. There is also a possibility to sit outside in a small garden. Philippa (?) is a very...

Stayed here one night with my boyfriend back in 2014, was a great place for couples. Has a spa bath. Was very close to the Hanmer Springs town, we just walked everywhere. It is a very quiet motel. Nicely decorated. The latest date I could put for the when did you travel was April 2016, however it was November 2014.

It was an excellent stay for me and my daughter. Very good location just a few minutes by foot from the Springs. Clean, comfortable and a lovely Day Spa where we had facial and massages. Will definitely go back.

Awesome location, close enough to the pools and town to walk but lovely and quiet. Had everything you needed and the spa bath was really lovely. Nice little patio area outside for morning coffee too. Would have liked to have longer.

Very close to spa, restaurants etc. Quiet setting. Very comfortable. No negatives. Use of the word "luxury " is perhaps a bit of a stretch. However, compared to some other accommodations, perhaps not. Standard of accommodation is high. Very clean. All amenities. Comfortable bed. Welcoming host and standard late checkout of 12 which is very useful. Thank you for a...

We arrived late and moved on the next day so we were only in the room for a few hours. However, our room was very spacious, comfortable and clean. The location was very quiet but only a short stroll form bars and restaurants.
