We stayed here for 2 nights, a family of four in a 2 bed chalet. We loved the fact that each chalet was separate from the others. The chalet was spacious, well fitted out and warm on what was a wet weekend. The walk into town was easy and flat for the most part and only a few minutes. Wifi... More

We stayed as a couple for two nights based on the positive reviews given. We weren't disappointed; the chalet we stayed in (10) had a spa bath, several heaters and a spacious and homely feel. It's an easy 10 minute walk from the town centre, which was perfect for us. Unlimited free wifi (very slow) and a morning newspaper were... More

We five on five motorbikes checked into the very comfortable and well thought out first unit. My husband and I had the large room and the bed was so comfortable, the best sleep during out three weeks away. The unit was modern and well thought out right down to providing a torch. The bathroom was a wet room with shower... More

We stayed in cottage 5 and it was great! The views over the mountains are exceptional, the verandah view sipping wine at the end of the day is lovely, it's only a short walk into town along a nice tree-lined footpath, the cottage is fully decked out with cooking facilities, the free internet access is really helpful, the delivery of...

Simple, fully equipped, friendly and rustic, these cabins seem the perfect complement to Hamner Springs extraordinary natural beauty and therapeutic hot springs. Tucked away from the town centre, they offer bucolic comfort in a wooded setting.

This motel, on the edge of Hanmer Springs and with fine mountain views, consists of a number of separate, detached chalets. Ours was bigger than the two of us really needed, but we enjoyed the space and the adapted bathroom for my disabled wife. Our chalet had two bedrooms as well as a large living room/kitchen. There was a terrace... More

I very much enjoyed staying in 'Chalets' (two nights) and I certainly intend to repeat that. After a quiet walk downtown of less than 10 minutes, I discovered the excellent kitchen at Robbie's Bar and Bistro (outside was cosey too).

Wow o wow, we had chalet number 1. It was really comfortable and secluded and it seemed a lot bigger than the pictures show. We had a really friendly welcome and you are able to hire towels out for $2 each for use at the thermal pools. Although we checked out at 10am we were able to leave our car... More
