“"Shangrila"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

What a perfect location towards the end of a sweet little town that is the host for the Thermal
Pools. We stayed there at the end of our holiday to soak up and rejuvenate for our long flights back to the US. I arrived with an aching back and the management discussed which of their available Units would be most beneficial for my recovery. We were placed in a wonderful unit; full kitchen, living room, dining room and it was a totally separate cabin with a front porch and car port.

Room Tip: All units looked attractive.

I have now stayed at Aspen Lodge on three occasions and I was not disappointed on this third visit. The location is excellent, just a short walk to the Thermal Pools, shops and other attractions but just far enough away to not be noisy in the evenings. Everything has been thought of for visitor comfort and, on each occasion I have visited, I have received a warm welcome. The beds are comfortable and if I am returning to Hanmer Springs in the foreseeable future, then this is where I would choose to stay.

Room Tip: If you don't want to take your luggage upstairs to the upper units, request a downstairs unit cl...

King size bed, good size room, excellent courtesy DVD collection and close to the central part of Hanmer springs. Has little kitchenette and average size bathroom. Clean and reasonably new interior. We got a good night sleep there. Service was good except for the morning of checkout when the (male) manager was surly to us for some reason...otherwise would have been five stars. Others have commented that the managers were good so maybe it was a bad day? We paid $125 for the room which we felt was pretty good value.

Thank you for your review of your stay with us. In response to your remark about management (male), we would ask that you try to understand Merv had open heart surgery on 29 February 2012, a quadruple bypass and is most apologetic of your impression on check out.

Kind regards

Very clean and tidy units, central to the village. Serviced each day, and a basket of muffins dropped off after the service. Free DVD library

Bed huge, mini balcony, everything you need for a short stay. After leaving some wet clothes in front of the heater I came home to them all hung up and my shoes stuffed with newspaper to dry them out. Great service!!!!
