16 APAC / Issue 4 2018 , Wonderful Service Delivered With a Personal Touch Annerleigh Luxury B&B is an award-winning B&B in the Thermal Alpine town of Hanmer Springs. We got an insight into the excellence of the venue fromLynn Brownlee, who runs the B&B alongside her husband Ian. Located in the North Canterbury area, and just a 90 minute drive from Christchurch Airport, Annerleigh Luxury B&B is set in half an acre of attractive gardens and specimen trees, all with lovely mountain views, and this is an ideal setting for the property. Lynn, alongside her husband Ian, runs the business with no external help, and therefore is delighted to have the ability to make the changes that they want to make, and provide a service which is truly unique and in their own style. So far, this method has been incredibly successful for the couple and shows no signs of changing. Around eight years ago, Lynn and Ian embarked on building their own home and have now been running the B&B years for seven years.

Alongside the excellent customer service delivered at the B&B, the venue is also situated just a 10 minute walk away from the picturesque Crawford Walkway, and guests can visit the townships and thermal hot pools, as well as a variety of restaurants.
