My wife and I stayed at "Vibrant Living Retreat" (formerly Albergo Hanmer) for the first 2 nights of our honeymoon. We stayed in the beautiful Alpine Lodge (well worth the extra spend). The lodge was clean, neat and homely. The hot tub is definitely a huge bonus! Plenty of sparkling wine and cheese can be enjoyed there! Breakfast was delicious... More

My partner and I stayed in the Alpine Villa and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The villa was spacious and homely and the hot tub was definetly a treat! Quaint breakfast setting with a view of the mountains. The hosts were very welcoming and we would love to come back.

A wonderful place to stay, with a warm welcome, a large well-set room, and a delicious breakfast in the morning. We arrived after dark, and the view we discovered in the morning was a delight, with no-one overlooking us. Truly beautiful and private. Thanks.

We originally found Albergo on Grab one and looked at booking for the weekend of my birthday however there wasn't a room available. The hosts very kindly agreed to give us the 3 bed stand alone unit for the same price. The unit is spacious, immaculately clean and well furnished. The views are stunning. Our only improvement would be to... More

We planned our visit to this idyllic village for relaxation after a busy month touring the two Islands, we were not disappointed, as soon as we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome, that continued throughout our three night stay, we were made to feel at home and that was truly the case as we relaxed in the garden...

Very nice locate, beautiful garden, Spa in the room and a wonderful breakfast (one of te best in New Zealand). We planned to stay only one night but extended it to two nights, since it was possible and we liked Hammer Spring very much. The Albergo B&B was really value for money! The host was friendly and helpful.

My partner and I staying in the luxury alpine villa. It was fantastic! The room was perfect and very generously proportioned, it also has a view to die for!!! We had our own spa too! I'll certainly be back - it was the perfect romantic getaway :)

My partner and I stayed at Albergo for a second time recently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lindsay and Joanne are most hospitable and so is there lovely Spaniel, Molly. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spacious. The view from your room is lovely. The 3 course breakfast was delicious and there was a good choice on the menu.

My partner and I stayed a couple nights for her birthday, everything was top notch including the breakfast which was to die for, we stayed in the Alpine Villa which was warm and cozy with great views. Really friendly service and their hospitality was more than 100% which is something that is rare these days. Thanks for the stay Linz... More
