We five on five motorbikes checked into the very comfortable and well thought out first unit. My husband and I had the large room and the bed was so comfortable, the best sleep during out three weeks away. The unit was modern and well thought out right down to providing a torch. The bathroom was a wet room with shower...

We stayed in cottage 5 and it was great! The views over the mountains are exceptional, the verandah view sipping wine at the end of the day is lovely, it's only a short walk into town along a nice tree-lined footpath, the cottage is fully decked out with cooking facilities, the free internet access is really helpful, the delivery of...

Simple, fully equipped, friendly and rustic, these cabins seem the perfect complement to Hamner Springs extraordinary natural beauty and therapeutic hot springs. Tucked away from the town centre, they offer bucolic comfort in a wooded setting.

This motel, on the edge of Hanmer Springs and with fine mountain views, consists of a number of separate, detached chalets. Ours was bigger than the two of us really needed, but we enjoyed the space and the adapted bathroom for my disabled wife. Our chalet had two bedrooms as well as a large living room/kitchen. There was a terrace...

I very much enjoyed staying in 'Chalets' (two nights) and I certainly intend to repeat that. After a quiet walk downtown of less than 10 minutes, I discovered the excellent kitchen at Robbie's Bar and Bistro (outside was cosey too).

Wow o wow, we had chalet number 1. It was really comfortable and secluded and it seemed a lot bigger than the pictures show. We had a really friendly welcome and you are able to hire towels out for $2 each for use at the thermal pools. Although we checked out at 10am we were able to leave our car...

The real reason for visiting Hanmer Springs is the thermal pools but then somewhere comfortable and convenient to stay is also a necessity. Having tried others we found The Chalets 4 years ago and have stayed there each year ever since. This year we were in New Zealand for only 23 days and 10 of them were at The Chalets....

Stayed overnight in a 2 bedroom chalet. Sensational views and lovely clean, peaceful and private surroundings. Happy to recommend to anyone. Decor a little tired but frankly who cares when you're in such a beautiful place - it's not really about the interior! Lovely helpful proprietors. Only a short walk to the town centre where we ate at Restaurant 31...

Only 1 night but a great night. The cabin we were in felt private and had the most amazing view over the area & Mountains. Basic fit out but the price reflects that. Very comfortable and clean and loved the idea of being in our own cabin in the mountains. Quiet, Close to the shops & Restaurants. Would stay here...
