Stayed for the weekend and had a great experience. Owners were really helpful and accommodating, even providing bikes to get to and from town without charge.

Location was really good for access to hiking and biking (directly across the road).

Room Tip: Only recommendation is if you are a couple spend the extra $10 and go for the studio over the kitche...

Hanmer is a pretty, clean centre & can be busy, so it was nice to be just a couple of Km's out of the centre. A large area for the camp in a nice forested area containing many tracks for walking or mountain biking in. Our cabin was basic but had 3 bunk beds & a pull out Futon, fridge, stove, toaster, jug, etc. Covered parking, BBQ available. Family owned & husband suggested a walk to a nearby Waterfall. You need to be fit as it's uphill constantly & can take between 1 1/2 - 2 1/2hours return. But it is good exercise! (We then went for a soak at the Hot Springs) Cabin cost us $55.

Room Tip: Get a cabin not too far from facilities if you wander during the night

Upon arrival at hanmer springs, was looking for something a little quieter, stumbled across this treasure just out of town. Arriving in a camper van were finding most places you may as well stayed in a motel, not here Quiet , scenic, very affordable, clean and great hosts we decided to stay extra nights a great place to stay. Went on the waterfall walk then continued to climb Mt Isobel tough but worth the effort actually seen glow worms near the water fall, I'm told rare not actually in a cave. Stunning scenery one day, snow the next. Great place to stay for campers,nature lovers

Thank you for the lovely comments. It certainly brightens up our day when people say they enjoyed their stay with us. Hanmer springs area is so beautiful, it is hard not to want to soak up all it has to offer, and to know that people have a great stay makes it all the more pleasurable.

Having had no accommodation planned for our stay in Hanmer Springs we were very fortunate to stumble upon this little gem.
Not only was the little cottage "The Smithy" wonderfully kitted out but had a vey unique log cabin feel.
The owners however are definitely what made the stay most enjoyable. Not only are they knowledgeable about the surrounding area but were more than willing to help look online for snow reports etc. They were even nice enough to leave the log fire on while we visited the hot pools ensuring we returned to a warm cozy retreat. By far the nicest people and best customer service received in a long time! A home away from home. Will definitely stay again!

I have stayed in Hanmer Springs a few times now, but normally in the township, which has proven noisy. APAC was so peaceful and very pleased to find wheelchair access such an ease. Will stay again :).

Room Tip: All rooms are very accessible and private, and surround by beautiful woodlands
