A Boutique B&B in the Heart of Hanmer Springs

A thoughtful mix of comfort and traditional elegance in a warm atmosphere of generous but unobtrusive hospitality.

Luxury Boutique Accommodation

We refurbished this wonderful 1930’s heritage home with our guests’ comfort paramount.
In the evening you are invited to join us and other guests in sharing great complimentary wines from local vineyards. Look forward to a gourmet breakfast in the morning, served at your leisure and in the privacy of your own suite.

Spacious and Sunny Suites

We have four spacious suites in the house and two cottages in the garden. Each suite has been designed to combine the charm of old-world elegance with all the modern-day conveniences. Be sure to allow yourself time to unwind with a game of billiards or a twilight hot-tub as well.

Generous NZ Hospitality

We are fourth generation New Zealanders from the local area. Over the past 12 years, we have been fortunate to share Cheltenham House B&B with wonderful people from across New Zealand and around the globe. Lonely Planet and The Rough Guide praise our generous hospitality, and we are very proud that our guests choose to  return time and time again.

Excellent Central Location

We are ideally located on a quiet street in the centre of Hanmer Springs. Hanmer Springs is just 90 minutes drive from Christchurch city & 2 hours drive from Kaikoura. Park your car when you arrive because the thermal pools, restaurants, shops, and forest park activities are all within 200-metres of Cheltenham House.
