Been here before and not disappointed even though it was coffee only in the morning. Clean and tidy with good selection of food on display. Would have eaten there but needed to get going.

My husband & myself had breakfast as usual when visiting Hanmer Springs, we were both very disappointed with our meal, not only was it not the "original" breakfast this one was very highly seasoned with herbs,we found the meatball unpalatable,the potato was very squashy also highly herbed so much so neither of us could eat it. We are both sorry not to return to The Power house but we think it is time for a change.

This was the first place we ever ate at in Hanmer, and we've been back several times since. The food is reliably good and the menu is varied. It's in a handy central location near the thermal pools.

Enjoyed the highland fling if you want to liven up the taste buds this will do it. It definitely brought mine back to life not bad for a porridge with a rhubarb base and a tot on top highly recommended I have found service great even though at times it can get busy I have never waited long please try

Stopped in for breakfast before heading to the pool. The pancakes were very nice. The coffee was good. Other meals on the table looked good too!
