We stayed here in the queen room for one night on our way through to Christchurch the next day. It's a very small establishment -- two suites with kitchen facilities and the queen room with ensuite that we stayed in -- and the owner was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Its position is excellent, being off the main street...

This little hostel is perfect. It' very small, just a few rooms next to the owners' house. It is fully equipped with cooking equipment, stove, microwave, fridge TV, wifi and sattelite. The spa bath in the bathroom is extremely relaxing. The room is very comfy with a big bed and sofa. There's lots of information leaflets provided too. The location...

For us to travel to this tranquil garden oasis in Hanmer not far from the town centre was great for soothing frayed Christchurch nerves. Thoroughly recommend it for people from Christchurch who might previously only do a day trip

This really was one our best accomodation choices! The room was huge, with a kitchen, bathroom with spa bath, living area with sofa and also a huge comfy bed. The hostess was excellent, baking us lovely cakes to try each day and generally being very helpful! Everything you could possibly need is in the room - menus of local restuarants,...

Stayed 1 night at this delightful motel. Received a warm welcome on arrival and was more than satisfied with the accommodation. Motel perfectly located within walking distance of the thermal pools, which were awesome, and the centre of the resort. I would highly recommend this motel.

I read other reviews before booking here and can vouch for the positive comments. We arrived before the normal check in time but were able to book in which was wonderful as we had come straight from Christchurch airport having had an overnight flight with little or no sleep. The unit was very comfortable and was in a lovely garden...

What a lovely place to spend the night. We had the smaller of the three rooms and it was very cosy. Had all we needed + a lovely cake on arrival. Unit was clean with white towels etc and the bed is very comfy. We even got towels for the springs which saved us &10. Gorden the owner was great...

Arriving around 11.30am we did not expect to get in, but to just leave luggage. We were greeted promptly by Kerry and our room was already ready (YES!!). Shown to our room and everything was explained without needing to ask a single thing... The home baked brownie was AMAZING. Heading outside to give the two gorgeous choc labs a cuddle...

Received a very warm welcome upon arrival here. We were shown to our unit and given an overview of the pools and recommendations for dinner that night. Unit was clean and very spacious with extra towels to take to the pools, a washing machine and even fresh baking! Couldn't help feeling like we were at home. Wonderful view of gorgeous...

Harrogate Gardens is the perfect place to get away from it all!! Private, quiet room set in beautiful gardens with everything you need!! Very impressed that they had towels available to take to hot pools. Close to town and within walking distance of pools, restaurants, shops!! Highly recommend and hope to get back again soon!!!
