We really enjoyed our short stay at Hanmer Apartments in April. The loft bedroom upstairs has a great view out over the mountains and when the clouds cleared we were amazed - especially fun to lay in bed and enjoy the view. The apartment was wonderful - clean, new, with all the amenities. Would definitely encourage people to stay there, thanks!

We stayed at Hanmer Apartments for 5 nights and had a great break. The apartments are around two kilometres away from the village.

Things we really enjoyed during our holiday:
- As noted in previous reviews, Shane and Amy are very helpful, obliging hosts.
- We loved the fact that as a result of the location of the apartments we had some wonderful walks around the countryside to get to the village.
- The apartments are modern and clean, and free Wi-Fi was provided.
- Our son joined us for a few nights as the apartment had a bedroom and a bed space on a mezzanine above the living area (extra charge for this).
- Given that it was the Easter weekend, the cost of the apartment was good value

Things to be aware of:
- Given the location, the car is necessary for night visits to the pools or to dine out. At peak periods parking becomes a problem.
- The apartment has a skylight above the living area without a blind. This can affect the person sleeping on the mezzanine (the emergency light on the stair is also bright)
- We found the Wi-Fi intermittent (but it was good to have it)
- The downstairs bedroom faces the walkway and car park - for any privacy you need to keep the curtains closed

All in all a most enjoyable and relaxing stay. Recommended

Such a shame that we were here only for one night. Shane and Amy should be very proud of their Apartments and the service they provide. Each apartment is very comfortable and clean with everything you need for your stay. The mezzanine room upstairs is simply fantastic with amazing views of the scenery. Shane is the perfect friendly host - making sure we knew where everything is, where to go in town and the best way to go when moving on to your next destination. Can't wait to be back again for longer than one night!

Hanmer Springs is a beautiful place and well worth the visit for its public baths and breathtaking setting amongst the mountains. The drive to get there is one of the most enjoyable i have ever had, too.
Great accommodation compliments a great destination, and our stay in Hanmer Springs in Autumn was made all the more enjoyable by our choice of Hanmer Apartments. Comfortable, well appointed and close to town, by the time we had to leave we were wishing for snow so we could stay a little longer! With our friends in the adjoining two apartments, we enjoyed both privacy and close contact with our travelling companions.
We are looking forward to returning in a couple of years to see how their beautiful gardens have grown. Next time we'll plan our visit for the snow season!

Just stayed for one night but was impressed with the overall standard of the apartments in terms of fitout. Plenty of space and the apartment opened up into a great outdoor patio area that had great views. Would definitely stay there again.

We were greeted very warmly by Shane upon our arrival who showed us our apartment and described the local activities and scenery. Apartment lovely, very cosy and we felt right at home. Unfortunately only there for one night and Shane was helpful with his advice as to which way to go the following morning - we took the long drive to Nelson via Picton much to his amazement, but he was very encouraging. Would certainly recommend Hanmer apartments to others and would definitely stay there again if heading that way.
