About Cheltenham House

With character and charm in abundance, Cheltenham House is a refined B&B that boasts a cosy billiards room and picturesque landscaped gardens. Enviably situated in the centre of town, the property is a leisurely three-minute stroll from the popular Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools & Spa.

With unique styling that takes inspiration from the house's history, the suites at Cheltenham House are all fitted with a fridge, lounge and dining furniture, tea/coffee making facilities, DVD player and TV. Private bathrooms contain bathrobes, towels and natural toiletries.

Despite its central location, the B&B benefits from the advantage of free private parking. Wi-Fi is also supplied at no additional cost.

Positive Reviews

Prime Hanmer Springs location

Guests mention the location as one of the B&B's best features. With a location that is right in the heart of Hanmer Springs, the property is a short walk from many of the shops, restaurants, bars and attractions the town contains, including being just a couple of minutes on foot from the Thermal Pools & Spa.

Excellent breakfast to begin the day

Visitors love the overall quality of the breakfast that is offered at the property. It is noted by guests that they get to choose from a varied menu the evening before, and the breakfast is then conveniently delivered directly to the rooms in the morning. Whether it's a cooked or continental option, the breakfast is described as delicious.

Impeccable service provided

The customer service at this B&B receives glowing feedback from guests. Along with the hosts providing a wonderfully friendly and accommodating service when interacting with travellers, the property is also said to be kept immaculately clean and maintained by the housekeeping staff.

Negative Reviews

Bathroom not always en-suite

Although it is something that reportedly only affects one room, visitors are a little disappointed that not every option at the B&B has an en-suite bathroom. While the room has access to its own private bathroom, it is situated across the hall, which is seen as something of an inconvenience.
