Because I was working in the mornings we stayed a full week and we truly enjoyed our stay. We were able to park our car when we checked in and never used it again until we left. We walked everywhere. We were close to the hot pools, shops, and the great collection of trails along the river.

stayed for one night after a busy day of activities in hanmer, studio was clean, spacious and well equipped for self catering, its ideally located for the spa pools and for everything that hanmer offers. parking and a safe place to keep push bikes is available which is great. the owners were also very friendly and helpful.

Stayed three nights, great location, just a short walk to the hot pools and shops. Tidy units, well serviced. Very clean. Comfortable bed. Towels supplied for use at the hot pools. Would definitely stay here again.

Tidy units, well serviced, hosts friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Grandchildren loved playing on swings and trampoline. Close to pools and we were given towels for pools. Next time we are in Hanmer we will be back to stay

Lovely high raked ceilings with clerestory windows giving an impression of even greater room, though the unit is very spacious indeed. Nicely decorated. Quality utensils in the kitchen, which is well-fitted out. Very hot water. Good outlook to the garden, mountains and pool and very handy to shops and restaurants. Owners super-helpful and friendly and we were reluctant to leave... More

Stayed two nights, a different unit each night, slept well in very comfortable beds. It was a very busy weekend with the No Vacancy sign out, (had booked ahead) No problem with noise from other units. Close and handy, a short walk around the corner to the hot pools, restaurants, shops, mini golf. Proprietors are doing a wonderful job, slowly,... More

Lovely quiet street, such a short stroll to the village and Hot Pools. Units are slightly dated in decor, but the cleanliness and friendliness of the owners/hosts far outweighs this. Would certainly stay at Spa Lodge in the future. Thank you Judy and Harry.

We got woken up at 6am on Sunday morning with the occupants next door and above us talking/flushing toliet/shower running. I would rather may an extra $20 and stay somewhere modern and quiet. Clean but very dated for the $$

We read the reviews before we booked but nothing quite prepares you for the 70's decor! The apartment was scrupulously clean and the owners very helpful and friendly. The big minus to this place was the fact that the walls are very thin and you can hear everything from next door. We had a two bedroom apartment upstairs and were... More
