Thank you to all the staff for a thoroughly enjoyable stay - all exemplary, fun, good for a laugh, and very happy to please. The only thing that would have made this stay better would have been to stay longer. We tried the onsite 5 Stags Restaurant this visit and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. You might want to use the...

We stayed for one night in a one bedroom unit, which was really great value for money. It had a kitchenette with microwave and tea/coffee (they put out a plunger coffee too which was very tasty and just what I needed in the morning), two person spa bath, separate shower with fabulous pressure, all very modern. There was plenty of... More

Only spent the one night here as a flying visit. The room was spotless, spacious and had everything we needed including a kitchenette. The bed was comfortable and large. The bathroom was also spotless and the only complaint we have there was the extractor was not powerful enough to clear the steam from the shower. The room really steamed up... More

Stayed for one night at Hot Springs Lodge - first time there. First impression was cleanliness of room and size of it - king bed plus single. All the normal amenities you would expect. Ten minute walk to the pools / village. Overall a comfy stay is a clean room at a reasonable price.

A handy place to stay, in Hamner. Stayed one night here on a visit to Hamner, and was impressed. The rooms are large, and well laid out, with excellent bathroom facilities.I had a King size bed, which was comfortable, with good blankets. Found the room to be above average size for a motel room. Very clean, and quiet. This Motel... More

Really nice stay, room was big and had a beautiful view of the mountains. Was lovely to get shown to the room on arrival. Would happily recommend it to anyone however the room did say spa bath but only regular bath and next time I visit I may take my own hairdryer as the one provided had little power. Overall... More

I booked the 'Superior Unit' as named on the website as being a step up from a studio unit. My mistake, I stupidly expected more for paying more. The difference now appears to be in the superior, you get 'two soft chairs and a coffee table'. Coffee table, yes, two soft chairs, no. Instead we got a fold away bed,... More

Stayed here for two nights and could not fault it at all. Extremely reasonable price, free wifi, full kitchen and bathroom. Would absolutely stay here again if we return to Hanmer Springs. The people in reception (I assume the owners) were brilliant. Very helpful and down to earth. Comfortable beds with electric blankets, large tv's, spa bath, very spacious. Didn't... More

We had a Superior King upstairs studio overlooking the mountains. It was a lovely big room with great view, sunny too with very comfortable facilities including a wide bath. We dined for lunch and dinner at the restaurant on site (Five Stags). The food was very good but the only complaint was the service was slow. We waited 90 minutes... More
