We stayed here because they advertise a spa pool and a heated pool which were out of order, a simple email to us stating this would have been appreciated! After arriving we were abruptly taken to our rooms with no offer of help with our bags by a very grumpy guy called Steve he opened the door to our room and said "no smoking inside and dont take the towels to the hanmer springs pools, If you want a towel that will cost $2".. I tried to be polite and asked if he was busy in general and he snaps back "it is when youve got 8 rooms to clean, We were blown away all 3 of us really inappropriate unfriendly and made us feel so unwelcome. the room itself is great no complaints there and AJ who is Steves partner was so much more friendly, we had to toss a coin as to who would go to reception to enquire if there was any ice as none of us wanted to interact with Steve, as we all felt he thought we were just a nuisance, And thankfully AJ sorted this out for us. Really bizzare behaviour thought it would be nice to stay at a gay managed apartment as 2 of us are also gay but how wrong we were it really made for a dissapointing stay. Steve if your having a bad day dont take it out on your guests!!! very unprofessional

We spent two nights here and wanted to stay longer but .... well there is always next time. View from our two bedroom apartment was awesome - snow covered mountains that went forever. Location was close to and very handy to the main shops and eateries and activities. Our hosts A.J and Steve were friendly, helpful and quick to respond to any requests. A small negative was the bed which was hard, but I do suffer from a bad back. My husband found the bed okay. Furnishings and fixtures excellent and well laid out for short or extended stays. A nice large deck with outdoor furniture to while away the afternoon feasting on one of Steve's homemade platters and a good wine and the views.

Not much to look at from the outside but inside is to a very high standard. Contemporary design and furnishings. Lounge has huge screen TV (flat screens also in the bedroom(s), two large sofas, nice heavy curtains. We stayed here for one night but everything is provided to stay a week, washing machine, drier, kitchen. Walking distance to the Thermal pools and restaurants. There is a small gymnasium and outdoor pool and spa. If you have a laptop then Internet connection is available in your room/apartment. Ask to see the room, you'll want to stay here!

From the moment my mother and I first arrived at Clear Ridge Apartments in Hanmer Springs we were made to feel completely welcome. Nothing was a problem to our hosts Steve and AJ. Our room was incredible, it had everything you could want and more, so many little extras you would never imagine getting (TV in each bedroom, stunning (really amazing) decor, having a laundry in-room, dishwasher) on top of all of this we even got scones bought to us baked by Steve as yet another extra bonus. Breakfast delivered to our room was delicious, the table was set up in our room with cutlery and salt and pepper all ready for us to sit down and enjoy (not a tray dropped off at the door like the usual). Our wonderful hosts called us by name any time we saw them showing professionalism and a general love for what they do which shows in every area of this fantastic 'home away from home' for us and we will definatley be returning and recommending Clear Ridge to friends and family.
