We were sorely disappointing after taking the time to drive off SH7 in search of some much needed respite from driving. This is not a place to go for relaxation. It was swarming with people, including lots of kids. There are water slides and rides here, for Christ's sake. I guess it'd be a nice place to go where the... More

We did a spa package for my wife and myself. The massages were ok, the spa side of the facility was well maintained, clean and well looked after, the staff are courteous and helpful. The private pools i didn't enjoy, they felt like small prisons and probably would be better if the window section opened up so it doesn't feel... More

We went to Hanmer Springs as we met a nice couple on our fishing tour in Kaikoura and they recommended this little town to us. They were amazed by the hot springs so we decided to stay there for a night and do a bit of wellness. I booked a massage in advance and the lady was really friendly. She... More

The thermal pools in Hanmer are a great way to spend a couple of hours relaxing. There are pools of varying size, temperature, and mineral content. It's very easy to hop from one pool to the next. There are also private pools; we hired one for half an hour, which was more than enough, as it got pretty hot in... More

Our two toddlers loved the pool. So much to see and do. We spent an hour and half there which was the longest they have spent in any pool. Very tired and hungry when they left. The kids pool was great, warm with a fountain in the middle, water fall and bucket drop to one side. Also a lovely little... More

Huge option of pool types. Sulphur pools to kids fun slides. Something for everyone and well set up and tidy. Well recommended. Wheelchair access was good. There is a couple of wheelchair changing rooms and showers. Two of the hot pools had chair hoists and they also had a wet chair that could roll into a couple of the other... More

The pools themselves are lovely and clean and well looked after with gardens etc and good changing rooms. However as we went on a weekend it was very crowded! Unfortunately the staff are a bit grumpy... Then they kicked us out of the adults only spa as our thirteen year old family member was "underage" she was sitting between us... More

We arrived about 4.00 pm and were initially a little unsure as it was busy but there are 15 open air thermal pools of varying temperatures to choose from so we were quickly able to find a quiet corner. This is an awesome way to spend a few hours, simply relaxing in freshwater pools, sulphur pools, rock pools and aqua... More
