Reviewed July 1, 2013

We stayed two night mid winter for an 3 year anniversary. The hosts are lovely, very helpful.
We liked being out of town , and in a more rural setting but I did walk into the centre in 15mins so not too far away! Or you can do a 2min trip in the car!
Very pleasant stay and will be back in spring to stay here again.

thank you for your kind words - yes we are 1.5km from village so it does seem like a proper rural setting - peace and quiet except for the occasional cow moo! remember also - repeat visitors get a free bottle of wine!

Recently stayed at Hanmer Apartments for two nights with the family. The apartment was exceptional! Very clean and modern. Very spacious and the kids absolutely loved staying there. The owners are very friendly and would go out of their way to make your experience a wonderful one. Nice touch to have free Wifi and DVD's. Next time in Hanmer, I will deferentially stay at Hanmer Apartments. Would recommend to everyone.

thanks for review - yes we try to "go the extra mile" to ensure you enjoy your stay and the FREE WIFI and FREE DVD's certainly help! Also we offer free pool towels and free shuttle into town in evening for meals.

My husband and I stayed three nights with two of our children in Hanmer Springs. These units were absolutely perfect with everything we needed for a cosy break away from the city. The rooms were modern and clean. Faultless really (and I have got very picky). We appreciated the little touches such as the free DVD hire and bike hire and towels for the hot springs in town. We had a rental car so the short drive into the village was not a problem. The views out to the mountains from our mezzanine bedroom were spectacular. The hosts were friendly and helpful. This was a really good value accomodation choice for our family.

This motel is a just fantastic....It was a delight to stay there from start to finish. The knowledge of the owner was great ...he knew exactly what we were after and help with everything. Especially on when to go to the pools when it wasnt packed! The room was great...clean..roomy and was wonderful to have the back doors open to a lovely garden area. I certainly wont be staying in a cramped motel again after staying here. It was perfect for the children and it really is not far out of town perfect for a lovely stroll or bike ride. We can certainly recommend this as one of the best places to stay in Hanmer! We are already planning our next visit back! So THANK YOU!

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed to be fantastic!

thank you - yes knowing local knowledge is important for travellers so we try to keep abreast of what suits. Our garden setting is a must for families with kids who need to burn some energy on trampoline or swings!

We have just stayed here for three nights. It was our first visit to Hanmer Springs and what a stunning place. The apartment had twin beds in a downstairs bedroom and a queen bed in a loft style room upstairs. Great lying in bed looking at the beautiful mountains through the skylights above the lounge. Free wifi, lots of free DVDs to select from, free pool towels. Easy walk into town.

We were late to book for the weekend and were so so lucky to get 2 nights at the Hanmer Appatments.
The design is clever, well thought out and the build quality really finnishes the room well. The views are lovely and the prices were very reasonible and certainly makes "a certain large chain hotel in hanmer" seem like an overpriced, old ghetto building in comparrison.
The service was second to none, with friendly owners, plenty of free DVD's for rainy days/nights, free extra towels for the hot pools and free transfers to and from hanmer if you needed them. They even gave us plenty of free internet which was not expected.

It was refreshing to be staying with a real family opperated business and nice to see the owners hard at work the following morning preparing the rooms for the next people.

Having stayed in many motels/hotels throughout hanmer I can happly report that Hanmer Appartments is the best by far in my experience and I look forward to returning next time with some friends.

Room Tip: All units look good, the family one at the end of the building looked really nice. They also have re...

thanks for your kind words - as a small family run business we can afford to take time out to satisfy guests reasonable requests, our "freebies" of unlimited DVDs, free WIFI, free shuttle, free pool towels and free bike hire (road only) do make a difference! thanks again

We loved this accomodation and were sorry we'd only booked for one night! It's beautifully done, spotlessly clean and although it's not in central Hanmer Springs, it's not far on foot or by car. I'd happily recommend and keen to visit if we're ever in the area again!

thanks - we pride ourselves on cleaniness and do recommend people stay longer than 1 night as there is so much to do in Hanmer Springs. The walk to village centre is about 15 minutes from us so we are far enough away to get peace yet close enough to walk!
