“Soak away a days drive”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

We were surprised by how popular the springs were and were glad that we weren't there on a busier night. Staff told us they get quite a crowd there sometimes which would take away from the experience. We found all the staff very friendly. I had a voucher from AA for a free upgrade to a private pool. What a bonus that was. We were given a private family room for half an hour to enjoy. Our only disappointment was that we only worked out we could have had piped in music about five minutes before we left the room. We wondered what that button was for! we were there on a Sunday night which is meant to be a good time to go to avoid crowds.

“Can't wait to visit again”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

We have been to Hanmer Springs twice in the last year and it is a great family experience. Our daughters love the big bucket dumping water on them and the great choice of pools means you can keep on the go or hold up in one place for a while.

“Great pools but expensive”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

We visited Hnmer Springs with friends having been there a number of times before. The pools and slides are still very good, very clean and well maintained and we especially enjoyed the new slide however it has become expensive for what it is especially charging an extra $10 just to use the slides. A good day out however and especially nice when it is raining or snowing.

“A wonderful experience”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

A very relaxing experience -- so many different pools to try and a full size swimming pool as well.
We just had to do them all -- difficult to choose our favourite.
My wife also treated herself to a spa treatment which she thoroughly enjoyed.
This is a must do if you are in Hanmer Springs.
