We loved our stay here. The Chalets are tucked away on a hillside and each one is very private. Our hosts were welcoming and happy to help with any queries. Our chalet was self contained, a full sized stove, seperate bedroom, and lots of room in the lounge. It was in immaculate condition. We had our own little lawn and...

We stayed in Cabin 5 for two nights. Every amenity was provided yet the tranquility of a back country hut was also provided. 3 minute drive into the main town centre or a leisurely 10 minute walk. The cabin was clean and spacious with a comfortable bed and pillows. Wi Fi was good. Loved sitting on the balcony and taking...

lovely peaceful cabin, clean and comfortable, and exceptional care received at a time when mother nature gave us a wake up call! The hosts were wonderful, calm and caring. The cabin shook but took it beautifully, I can't wait to come back and finish our holiday. Hamner Springs itself was a fantastic location for anyone in love with the outdoors....

Perfect for our trip. Clean, comfy, had everything we needed, handy to town centre and pools. A great venue, definitely worth returning here. The chalet was nice and warm which was good as the weather was horrible. A great selection of DVDs to borrow free from office too if you get stuck. Free WiFi was good. Really enjoyed it here.

We stayed here for our first family holiday. The chalets are lovely, clean, quiet and warm. When inside they feel quite spacious considering their size. It has everything you need with full kitchen which makes it great for staying in and cooking a meal. The staff were friendly and helpful and supplied us with a portacot and high chair as...

Perfectly suited to a couples night away. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Self contained units were well appointed, providing a little home away from home. The mountain views were stunning. Location made for an easy stroll around the township, while still being private and tucked away from the main road. We will definitely be back.

Lovely self-contained units with well appointed kitchen will suit the traveler looking to have some 'home time' while away travelling. We purchased some NZ lamb and were able to enjoy a home cooked food in full view of the mountains. Hosts were cheerful and accommodating.

We are coming back time to time almost every year to same place (house), and we have always a very great time with Andrew and his crew. The lovely 2 bdr chalets are extremely tidy and clean, the place has fantastic view over Hanmer Springs and view to mountains around it. Who really need to relax after the busy days,...
