Our rooms were comfortable and warm, once we got the heaters going, with dated kitchen and bathroom facilities. These did the trick, mostly, but were old. Also we're used to having our room serviced to a higher level than having the mints replaced. Maybe an off day for the household staff?

Great value for Hanmer! Clean, tidy and very comfy beds. Older style rooms with all you need for a short stay. Undercover "carport" parking, very handy in winter. Good in room heating & electric blankets & hair dryer. Our room had a modern flatscreen tv with SKY channels.

It would be hard to find a better loctaion in Hanmer Springs Village than Spa Lodge - mere minutes walk from the Thermal Pools, shops & restaurants and yet totally quiet. Decor & layout is dated but everyhing was spotlessly clean. Our 1bdr unit had minimal cooking equipment - hot plates & microwave, but we weren't planning to cook. TV... More

Good reception but the owners do the majority of cleaning so have a slightly later book in time than most places. Beds are very comfy, units very clean, complex not new but tidy, plenty of heating if visiting in winter.... Very much great value for money if on a budget. Seems very safe and in good environment..
