“Needs refurb, but good size and location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

Walking in, it was like stepping into my grandma's 70's styled home. We booked on price, location and size as we wanted a self contained apartment. It is all those things, though the property needs some love. The lawns and gardens are unkept and the apartment is a bit grubby. The bed smelt a little musty and pillows (personal preference yes) were hard.

It does have nice views over hanmer and is a nice walk into town. Everything you need is there in the kitchen and the host was very accommodating even when we arrived at 10am - which we appreciated very much.

I'd only stay again if it was the only similar kind of accommodation available in this price range, but it did do the job for us this time.

Stayed January 2014, traveled as a couple

We enjoyed our overnight stay at Greenacres Chalets and apartment! Our host was very friendly and accomodating, most gracious! Comfortable bed but pillows very hard! Awesome shower with great pressure. We really valued the high standard of cleanliness and will stay again! Decor little dated but we did not spend a lot of time there anyway. May we suggest that perhaps for added security a burglar chain could be fitted on door as lock did not appear to be that strong! Excellent location to town centre!

Has visited Greenacres in Hanmer Springs for 5th time. This location is perfect for us and the view is golden seal. Accommodation is little bit outdated but comfortable, tidy, friendly, you can cook your own meals and park your car a front of your hut.......Will come back next year

Room Tip: Top row is the best view

We enjoyed our stay here, awesome that we could bring our dog on holiday! Very clean and rooms have everything we needed. Would recommend a shower shelf of some sort, and a couple of cracks in lounge walls may need addressing but other than that very good and will look to return in the future as excellent service!

We stayed in a 3-bedroom villa for 2 nights. Cosy, tidy and clean accommodation conveniently located just a few minutes from the town centre. Great views and comfortable beds. Friendly hosts.

The only (minor) drawback - a bit squeaky floors, but in all other ways the accommodation was excellent. Great choice for families. Would definitely stay there again. Thanks!

Very friendly and helpful welcome. Owners go out of their way to be helpful. Although the units are older they are kept very clean and tidy with everything in them that is needed. Ideally situated and within walking distance to all amenities in Hanmer. Ideal setup for family holiday.

Extremely happy with our accommodation & service. Every aspect was good. This was the only accommodation we could find in Hanmer that could accommodate for 2 families (4 adults & 3 children) staying in the same chalet.
Beds were really comfortable. Chalet was very clean & tidy & everything we needed was there. Service was fantastic. Even had a BBQ available for 2 nights. If we were to travel back to Hanmer we would defiantly stay there again without a doubt.
