Quite a while since we stayed here and should have reviewed before. A real treat for that extra special getaway. Recommended to us and have recommend to others. Life's short, enjoy those special moments which Cheltenham House definitely offers!

Lovely Victorian house set in pleasing grounds. Maree and Len were first-rate hosts, with a warm welcome and a glass of wine in the billiard room before dinner. Full breakfasts were served to us in our rooms. Strongly recommended.

We had been going to Cheltenham house regularly but time has got away on us. We decided to go and stay on our way to Nelson. Seeing Len and Marie was just a pleasure. They remembered us but down to fine detail. How our family was and asking about our house as a result of the Christchurch earthquakes. We had...

This spot was booked for us by our tour guide, John Fitzwater of GoTourNZ, and what a find. Maree and Len are just wonderful people and they've been doing this forever so are very professional. It is close, about one block, from downtown Hanmer Springs and the hot baths. But maybe best is that they serve breakfast for you IN...

We came here a few years ago and made a point of returning because it was so lovely last time, and that hasn't changed. I'll be back, though it may be a few more years sadly. The house is I think a quality restoration with very comfortable facilities, very civilised in the best sense, pampered even. Excellent bed, I slept...

I m very impressed with my first experience at the B & B. Hosts are very friendly and make you feel like home away from home. We get to meet many people from different countries too. This place is perfect for family holiday, it is very kids friendly too. We will definitely be back.

We stayed at Cheltenham House for one night and wanted to stay longer. Maree and Len are wonderful and gracious hosts. They really did make us feel welcome and as if we had been friends for awhile :) The house and rooms in the house are decorated and furnished beautifully. Our very comfortable room had a lovely sunroom attached to...
