The hanmer springs Hot pools are the best going around. There is so much room for relaxation, fun and the paddle and the lazy river. There is a massive variety of hot pools to choose from. Amazing experience for everyone to try.

I love coming here in the summer or the winter.But it is probably best if you want to spend a lot of time on the hidroslides to go in the summer so you do not get cold while waiting in line. I have been here many times and each time i have had a great time. You can relax in... More

Definitely plan some time at the Thermal Pools in Hanmer. So relaxing....unless of course you go in the school holidays! We went twice (Thursday night there was hardly anyone around but Saturday is when the place comes to life and was a lot more crowded, but still room to explore the many different pools). My favourite pool was the pool... More

What an amazing place. It really caters for everyone. The pools are clean and inviting and there are so many options to choose from. They'd be great fun in summer and winter. Lovely to have a hot soak while looking at the snow on the mountains.

It can be a bit pricey for a family but what a great facility for the Canterbury region. There's a huge variety of pools. You can be actively enjoying your self or just sitting back and relaxing in the pool.

We always stop at the hot pools when in Hanmer Springs. The kids love the hydro-slide, the bowl ride and lazy river area and the lockers are handy and cheap to hire. There are plenty of hot pools of differing sizes and temperatures, including cool freshwater pools. This time around we had purchased a 'pamper pack' which included massages, steam... More

We hadn't visited since our children were small. This was fantastic, we stayed for 2 hours and only had time to sample two of the pools. We enjoyed it from the very friendly lady on the front desk to the immaculate facilities and the locals who shared conversation and information in the pools. Highly recommend this. Looked like great facilities... More

Our family group of 16 visited the hot pools last weekend and had an absolute blast! There is something for everyone, with hot pools of varying temperatures and sizes. Plus a big family-type pool suitable for the kids to put their head under and have a fun time.. whilst still warm enough for the adults to just mooch around in.... More

Hi 4emilygeorge, We are sorry your visit was not the experience you were looking for. We did send the email out stating quite clearly to purchase tickets online - they are not available over the counter. Our staff are all aware of the promotion and so it is strange that the staff member would not know what you were talking... More
