I was actually visiting with family with no children.....but this doesn't seem to be an option on tripadvisor? Had a good day at the springs. Had studied studiously previous reviews so fully knew what to expect. Wasn't super clean, but wasn't massively busy either, a bonus I gather. Locker system is interesting and didn't quite recognise our code on return....had... More

We visited the hot pools recently on a family gathering. Overall the hot pools were great, the kids and the rest of the family really enjoyed the pools. A couple of small things that let it down would be the cost to gain entry for a family or even an adult is expensive and theres is also an additional charge... More

Dear Bronnie3, Thank you for your feedback. Regarding the cost, we regularly monitor our entry costs against other complexes and Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools & Spa is one of the cheaper thermal pools / water park complexes in New Zealand. We also believe that if someone isn't going to use something, they shouldn't have to pay for it. If we... More

We loved Hanmer Springs, we took our 3 month old baby and she loved it! It was quite crowded as we went on a public holiday, but it was still a lovely place to relax and enjoy!

The hot pools were a really great spot, offering something for everyone. We were there with a 2 year old and baby and they loved it, and we loved it too. There were water slides, kids areas, adult only areas as well as a cafe and spa if you wanted to fork out for some treatments. The cost was quite... More

The main reason my partner and I wanted to visit Hanmer Springs was to come to these hot pools and we weren't disappointed. This place is huge and there are so many different pools to choose from. My favorite pool was definitely the adults only hydrotherapy pool. This was the ideal temperature for me and was not too hot. The... More

You really can't go past the hot pools, a perfect spot for a couple getaway. The selection of pools and atmosphere is great. Pretty good value to for a double pass. They were in the process of doing up the changing facilities which will help the before and after experience also. A must do if you can for a weekend.

This hot pool complex has pools to suit everyone. The staff are bright and bubbly and made us really welcome. This is a very clean, well run facility at very reasonable prices. The layout and design are creative and appealing. Lifeguards are polite, friendly and very alert. They seem to be visible everywhere in the complex. What a great place... More

From the moment you walk into the spa you feel special. We had a pamper package which included a steam bath, a private pool and a massage and all were very enjoyable. The facilities were clean and modern and the masseuses were very experienced and professional. It was bliss! With this package you also have entry to the main hot... More
