“Amazing place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

I very much doubt that there would be a better place to stay in Hanmer Springs. Our room was spectacular. Beautiful view and the location is perfect. Only 2 mins stroll to the hot springs and lots of great cafes. I've never bothered to write a review of a hotel before, but I really felt compelled to do so for Clear Ridge Apartments. We will be back, guaranteed! PS the spa in the room was the icing on the cake!

I have stayed in quite a few places in Hanmer and both my daughter and I were extremely pleased with our two bedroom accomodation at Clear Ridge. The beds were sooooo comfortable and cosy. The double spa bath was so indulgent, especially for my daughter. The decor was very tasteful and cosy. The management had thought of so many little things to include in the apartment , that made our stay wonderful. The view of the snow capped mountains from our apartment was absolutely breathtaking and will stay with us until we return.

Steve you have the best place in Hanmer. We have stayed at all of them. You are the best. You looked after my partner and parents on the weekend. they loved it as much as we did 2 years ago. 5 star and beyond. Nothing compares in Hanmer. Always great service. Super clean rooms. 3 minutes from village. You should be proud. Very happy.

Room Tip: just go there and enjoy your time in hanmerand not worry about if there is anything better, Clear Ri...

It was a pleasant stay with pleasant surrounding but not what I would call luxury or even close to 5* Reception stunk of cigerette smoke from the staff. He was complaining he was the only one working etc. He shuffled us into our room and gave us a quick briefing explaining there would be no choices for breakfast as he was the only one on and we were too late to order a paper. Oh and if we wanted sleep in tne other bed for any particular reason there would be a $40 charge.

Room Tip: Ask about the level of heating and whether is underfoor heating some of these cheaply built places h...
