“Lovely stay”
Reviewed October 25, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We love staying at this home. So relaxing and peaceful. Great to be able to self cater but have lots of restaurants in Hanmer village. We stayed before the new owners took over and missed the TV/DVD player and clock radio in the bedroom. These should be in the bedroom as other 5star properties do. Apart from that this is a wonderful property.

Dear Maggie. Thank you for your response. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The decision to remove the technology from the bedroom obviously happened prior to our taking over. However, we value your feedback, and will consider it closely as we continue to upgrade the retreat. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

“Truly relaxing”
Reviewed November 16, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We had three nights at this lovely retreat. Perfectly situated for privacy. Fully equipped right down to towels for the hot pools. Decking expansive and well furnished with seats, tables and the bath in the corner totally made our holiday break, especially with the rain and cooler temps we had during our break. Used it every day..... and the lovely log fire well stocked with firewood/cones.
Easy walk to the village shops. Have already booked for our next stay in 2016.

“fantastic weekend”
Reviewed August 2, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

What a delightful set up for a get-away weekend. The living room was a great size with a cosy log burner to take away the winter chills. An excellent kitchen with gas cooker made us change our plans for eating out. If we had been better prepared we would have brought our own supplies as the local store was limited. The bedroom was very comfortable and well furnished. It was amazing lying in the bath outside in the dark gazing up at the stars. When its not dark the views to the mountain are great too. Highly recommended

This is totally designed for couples but was perfect for a getaway just for me. I stayed 2 nights. Loved the outside bath even in the rain. Its all the little touches that make this place brillant. I will be back.

This place had everything you wanted to have a relaxing and romantic time, the view is so pretty out the back on the deck and very peaceful.There are walks close by and an easy walk down to the village and to the hot pools Well equipped kitchen and had a cosy feel about the house, I would recommend Love Hanmer to any couple who wants to have a romantic few days.

“Perfect Accommodation in Hanmer”
Reviewed April 10, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed three nights and wished it could have been for longer. The house/chalet was very clean and tastefully furnished with a large lounge/dining room, full kitchen including oven & dishwasher, laundry (the drier is under the house), bedroom and en-suite. The large deck is sensational being private and surrounded by tree-clad hills - and the two-person outdoor bath adds further interest. The back gate provides access to the walkways to Conical Hill and the beautiful Woodland walk. As a couple this was a perfect choice.
