We spent one night at Hanmer and it was fine. The staff are really nice and friendly and the hotel is fine. We were there mid week so it was pretty quite. Our room was nice, clean and warm. The only problem was were were close to reception and at the change of staff we could hear them talking and laughing. Great that staff were happy to come to work. Usually not a problem as we wake early, but as we were still on Aussie time, 7am was 5 am for us. Just request a room away from reception.
Breakfast was included in our tariff and as it was pretty quite breakfast was al la carte, which we prefer, better than the pre cooked variety sitting in buffet style.
My wife had the most delicious vegetarian breakfast whilst i went for the eggs benedict with salmon. It was nice except instead of smoked salmon it was tinned red salmon, not as good.
If these are our only complaints it's not too bad and we would stay there again. Happy hour was pretty good, beer and wine cheaper than in the local pubs.
Spend a few hours in the hot thermal pools nearby, lovely and relaxing. The hotel will supply towels, no need to hire at the centre. Don't forget to pack your cossies (bathers, swimming trunks etc.) and save on the $5 hire.
