We met a group of friends from all over NZ here over the Easter Break. Stayed at the Heritage chalets, which were excellent. Went mountain biking on rented bikes over well documented trails. There are a range of routes for the experienced to the incompetent (put me in the latter group)! Great fun. The pools themselves were lovely but very,... More

No matter what the temperature outside, the hot springs are warm and relaxing treat. Surrounded by beautiful mountain peaks you can luxuriate in the hexagon pools as hot as a bath or soak in the more temperate and pristine rock pools. For the kids there are the slides and for the fitter amongst there is a lane pool. I made... More

The pools were very relaxing to soak in while it was very cold outside. The dressing rooms were clean and comfortable. Not too many people there during this time of year so that was nice.

Inexpensive and good fun. Some adult only pools. Even in cool weather the pools are hot so you can go all year round and enjoy the experience. Can get busy at peak times, so time your visit carefully.

We visited Hamner Springs in the afternoon and arrived at the baths about 6pm. Lovely and quiet at this time of day and we were able to relax in the lovely relaxing pools without having any problem with lots of other visitors around. Pools are well maintained and staff very friendly and helpful.

The springs were great to soak in after coming through snow. Amenities were clean and staff lovely. You can hire swimmers for $5 a pair very reasonable price.

It's a Great place to relax. We enjoyed the hot sulfor and water pools. We liked the private sauna and pool. They have family dress rooms (only two). The cafe is only for hot drinks and light food, it's not a restaurant.

The entry charge is quite high for what there is unless you intend to stay all day. There are several pools but a few are the same type. Even though we were there at a quiet time it was quite crowded. The slides and superbowl are good fun but you have to pay extra for these. There are several pools... More

Hi albiejnr and thanks for taking the time to post a review. We constantly monitor our pricing against similar complexes in New Zealand and we are generally one of the least expensive thermal pool complexes, especially considering the amount of pools and slides we have. We do charge extra for the slides as we believe that not everyone wants to... More

We spent 3 days at the pools in April. The kids had a blast on the water slides and pools, it kept them amused all day. We (the parents) had some nice relaxing time in the thermal pools. I had a private sauna which was a well needed, very tranquil experience. We also made use of the private family pools... More

First time I have ever been to Hanmer Springs and it did not disappoint. Pools are so well done and the place is clean, tidy and out of this world. Very well done
