Hanmer motel best in NZ
Hanmer Springs moteliers Paul and Rae Baigent are celebrating the news that they own the best motel in the country, at least according to the industry. The St James Hanmer Springs, in the heart of the Hanmer village, was named New Zealand’s best motel at the New Zealand Hospitality Awards 2018. It beat strong competition to take top honours at a gala dinner of hospitality leaders held in Queenstown. The Baigents said they were over the moon and felt really privileged to have won.
