We spent 2 nights here but could easily have stayed much longer. The apartment was spotless. It was very spacious for a family of 5, and opened up to an outdoor area which was great for the kids. Arriving close to midnight was not a problem, the extra bed was set up and whole place toasty warm. Plenty of towels, plus extra for the hot springs were already provided. The small kitchen has everything you need (note no element/hotplate as stated on website), and the shower was great - seemed to have plenty of hot water for all! Lovely toiletries were included. We did initially book through booking.com but my understanding is they would prefer booking directly, which we would do next time. The hosts were very friendly, helpful and welcoming - absolutely recommend this place to others.

A small group of us spent a truly wonderful couple of days at Hamner Springs, New Zealand.

Hanmer Apartments were absolutely faultless, we couldn't of asked for more. Just a beautiful 10 minute walk from the famous hot springs and spa.
Our hosts were excellent kindly picked us up after an excellent dinner at one of the local restaurants.

We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: All rooms have ground floor access and a garden area behind. Very well equipped kitchens.

thank you for mentioning 10 minute walk into village - this puts us out in the quiet, peaceful surrounds of Hanmer. And yes shuttle pick up is convenient if wanting a drink or two with evening meal at restaurant, thanks again.

We were welcomed by Shane and his wife after a long drive with a warm apartment and a friendly smile.
The apartment was clean and well appointed-a bit of a walk into town, but we had a car. i understand that the owners will drive you in if needed.
I would recommend staying at Hamner apartments if you are staying at the springs!

This place is a gem. Well situated slightly out of town. Quite with spectacular country/mountain views. The apartment is spacious, comfortable and nice private outdoor space. We were so impressed we wanted to stay longer but sadly found it was fully booked (not surprising). We are already planning a return trip. The unit has a good sized bathroom, kingsized bedroom and open plan living downstairs and stairs to a Mezzanine floor with queen bed in a large room. This was a great room as you could lay in bed and gaze at the stars. Shane and his wife are great hosts (nothing was a problem). Thanks for a great stay.

Definitely recommend Hanmer Apartments for a relaxing stay. A pleasant walk to town and just far enough away to give you a rural sense with view back to the mountain range. Very hospitable hosts with good info about walking tracks and things to see.
The apartment was great for a couple, with an upstairs loft we didn't use but would be good for a second couple or children. Much better than a straight hotel room. Hanmer Springs is a lovely place to visit.

We had a lovely few nights staying at the Hanmer Apartments. We travelled with our 15 month old son and it was really hot there in the middle of February, so the air conditioning unit that blasted out lovely cool air was super welcome. When booking, we were helpfully given the end apartment that is just on one level, to make it easier for loading and unloading all the gear that comes when travelling with a small child!
We would highly recommend Hanmer Apartments to anyone else. Its location is lovely and quiet with a beautiful view towards the mountains to enjoy from your private terrace in the morning and evening.
