Guest reviews for St James Manor

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed April 2022

The property was great. It's well suited for adults and children. The games room is amazing. I would definitely recommend this property.

Stayed January 2022

Great for an extended family getaway. Comfortable and private. Indoor outdoor flow to BBQ area. Fantastic. Children’s playhouse a definite plus for us. Add in the game room and it’s the full package.

Stayed December 2021

the property was very well set up for a families with young children aged below ten

Stayed November 2021

House is great for large or extended families so close to everything very clean and well supplied with kitchen things. we all loved being seated around very large table and plenty of room for teenagers to have their own space.I would highly recommend.

Stayed October 2021

Our stay was awesome, all three of our families had a great time. The home is spacious and really functional for large groups. The backyard isn’t fully fenced, which was the only negative, otherwise a perfect home away from home. We have already booked it again for the same time again next year!

Stayed October 2021

Very tidy house and ample of room for two families of 5. Great location to walk into the town. Weather got cold but house was easy to heat.

Stayed October 2021

This house has to be the best house we have ever stayed in, we came with a group of friends abs the games room was well used , the house had everything we needed from wifi to Netflix and space , definitely be back again .

Stayed September 2021

Very lovely modern home with all you need for an excellent family holiday

Stayed September 2021

Great home definitely reccomend

Stayed August 2021

Absolute amazing property. So well set up for kids, and lots of great things for the adults too including poker table, pool table & arcade game! Easy walk into town. Very clean. Great variety of pots etc for cooking. Would definitely stay again

Stayed July 2021

Great location! So much to do on the property that I even said no to ice skating with the squad because...well...I was already happy just relaxing on site! Big house with lots of options for hanging out and cooking and having a good time. Very close to town which is handy too!

Stayed May 2021

It was wintery and wet when we stayed. The house is well insulated and retains the warmth created by the large log fire. The games room is a boon for indoor entertainment, and ideal for families, and so no need to worry if stuck indoors.

Stayed May 2021

Fantastic place for our family of 9 to stay. We loved the warmth of the fire and the fun to be had in the games room. Excellent set up in the kitchen, dining and living area. Panel heaters and electric blankets in the bedrooms were also appreciated. Highly recommend this place.

Stayed April 2021

A very enjoyable stay enjoyed by our family group of eleven. There is plenty of space in this house and the five bedrooms allowed us all to have our own rooms. The games room is great and also toys for the children is a bonus. The property was well presented on our arrival, just had to request for the gas bottle to be filled so the BBQ would work. This was attended to as soon as we requested by the Bachcare managers.

Stayed March 2021

Beautiful place to stay and well worth it entertained us all weekend and very close to town.

Stayed February 2021

Great property. Loads of room and packed with entertainment, Highly recommend

Stayed January 2021

A practical residence for our stay comprised of ten adults plus two children,easy walking access to the pools,shops.BBQ plus outdoor eating area added that desirable summer X factor.Visits from Simba,neighbours cat,was a hit with all.

Stayed January 2021

I think this is the best holiday home I've ever stayed in. It was so we'll equipped, beyond our expectations. Especially being a family with young children - it had everything you need from a playhouse, to a pram and highchair, to kid friendly cups and plates etc, to an arcade machine in the games room! Was nice to have a smart tv. Good walking distance to the village. Very comfortable, spacious home. Thank you!

Stayed January 2021

Brilliant place. Owners have obviously listened to past feedback. Very short walk to town and hot pools. Attention to details including games, playhouse and children's toys and bedtime books placed upstairs and downstairs. Kids and adults alike gave a resounding verdict that "We want to come back!"

Stayed November 2020

A well presented house that is great for children. Lots of toys for children young and old!

Stayed July 2020

A great place to stay for our extended family. Really good facilities, close to town centre and the games room was a definite hit for everyone.

Stayed June 2020

The house is very spacious and roomy and in a great location. It had a great fireplace and facilities. It was a bit tired and some areas need an upgrade for the price charged.

Stayed February 2020

The house is fine if a little dated. I feel for the cost it’s on the expensive side. The games room is good for the kids. Probably best for 2 large families who can share the cost. Bachcare are very strict on their booking policy and didn’t allow changes well in advance of the booking date. This is not good business, and very disappointing considering the circumstances explained clearly to them. 2 emails not responded to, it took a call and even then the girl who took the call wasn’t sure of the policy. Lesson learnt read the small print carefully and be aware that not all businesses operate with integrity or empathy.

Bachcare replied

Thanks for your review Regina. We're sorry that St James Manor did not meet your expectations on this occasion. All our bookings are subject to our Guest Terms & Conditions, which are easily accessed on our website and presented during the booking process. We're sorry if there was any misunderstanding regarding our policies around booking amendments. We hope you had an enjoyable time in Hanmer Springs.

Stayed January 2020

Very comfortable large house....plenty of room for 12. Great having toys for the children and they loved the outdoor playhouse. It was good having a BBQ and comfortable outdoor seating area. The only issue was 2 of the upstairs bedrooms were extremely hot on very hot Hanmer days.

Stayed January 2020

Managers: Very professional, on time and very helpful, house in good order when we arrived. Property: Well appointed, looks new, great facilities, loved the stroller. Cleanliness: spotless Details: in a new-ish spotless house the little things that are not right stand out - like the absence of a pot or pan big enough to cook for more than 4 people - in a house that sleeps 12. Also a new metal scourer per new group of guests would look a lot better than what we found under the kitchen sink. Bachcare: lots of hidden fees, unlike any other company we have ever dealt with. We ended up paying almost twice the advertised price. Infants from 10 months onwards cost the same as a 15 year old. Usually it's 1 year. Linen is per person, not per bed. Cleaning fee is compulsory. In short - all up we paid about twice the advertised price for a goup of 6 adults and 2 children staying 2 ights. All up a great house within easy walking distance to the pools and to Conical Hill. We have been assured by the managers that the owners will be asked to provide a good sized pot for future guests.

Bachcare replied

Stayed January 2020

House was dirty, and had previous vacayers rubbish left for us, including a full dishwasher of dirty dishes and handprints all over the windows, cleaners don't clean but get paid big time to do nothing ...

Bachcare replied

Thanks for your feedback Lynda. We're sorry the property wasn't at our usual high standard. We're glad we were able to resolve the matter satisfactorily for you and we hope to welcome you back to one of our properties soon, so that you can enjoy the true Bachcare experience - which we are very proud of!

Stayed December 2019

We found Eva excellent to deal with. The location of St James Manor is superb. The house had everything we needed for a lovely family holiday. We would thoroughly recommend it to everyone!

Stayed November 2019

This was our second time renting this property, which speaks for itself. The house is a great size for two families with plenty of room to spread out. Love the central location. Highly recommended!

Stayed November 2019

Fantastic property for larger groups and families with an ideal location close to town and the Hot Pools

Stayed October 2019

What an amazing house for our large extended family to meet up for the school holidays. Plenty of space and so comfortable with a real homely feel. Weather a bit chilly but fab warm fire kept us toasty warm and the games room was excellent for keeping the kids occupied. Absolutely recommend bachcare and this house.

Stayed October 2019

Great property for families. Well equipped with everything you need.

Stayed October 2019

Awesome stay

Stayed October 2019

Lovely large house. The location is fantastic to easily walk everywhere. The views are lovely from the house too. The only disappointment was that the arcade machine was broken, which the kids were really looking forward to, but otherwise it was an ideal house for us in Hanmer Springs.

Bachcare replied

Hi Melissa! Thank you for your review! We're glad you had a lovely time! Yes, it was such a bummer that the arcade broke before your stay, and we're already working on its repair. We hope to see you and the family again!

Stayed September 2019

Great location with good arrangement of rooms. One of the few places that has dining and seating for as many as they sleep!

Stayed September 2019

This property was excellent to our needs. 3 families stayed in the house and the games room was well used by the children, leaving the adults to chill. Plenty of space in the house. Would definitely recommend James Manor and would love to stay again. Best property we have stayed in at Hanmer.

Stayed July 2019

Perfect house, amazing people to deal with

Stayed July 2019

This house was massive and perfect for our extended family get together. House was well equipped and can’t say anything bad or anything we were dissatisfied with

Stayed July 2019

It was a great place to stay for our family 'get together'. The size was perfect for 9 of us. Although it is a big place it was easily kept warm with use of the log fire and the heat pump. It was really good having essential items already there, such as toilet paper, dish washing liquid, and liquid hand wash.

Stayed July 2019

Love this house , have thought of everything

Stayed June 2019

A homely relaxing environment perfect for a larger group.

Stayed April 2019

An awesome house for 10 people. The games room was an asset especially when the weather wasn't so good. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay thank you :-)

Stayed March 2019

Great property! We enjoyed our stay, wish it had been longer. Easily accommodated 9 of us. Loved the games room!

Stayed January 2019

Good house, very comfortable for a party of 8. Would happily stay there again.

Stayed December 2018

What an amazing home to make memories in. So spacious! The games room was the best. A bonus playhouse is on this property, which was to our surprise, for our 3 year old Grandaughter. Easy walking distance to Hanmer town. This is a place to have the best weekend away, even better make it a very long weekend with extra days!

Stayed September 2018

Great position handy to shops, restaurants and hot pools

Stayed August 2018

Thank you for a wonderful stay. I only wish we stayed longer! It was a very comfortable house for 10 of us. The additional games room is wonderful and means that you all have space.

Stayed April 2018

A quiet location and beautifully presented home. The shared driveway meant being extra vigilant with the children but they enjoyed the easy descent down to the main road
