We are a family with two teenage kids so space is important. Loved our stay here. Our accommodation was very spacious, clean and modern. Could happily live in it full time. The facilities were great and was a perfect base for exploring the local area. The young couple who run it could not be more helpful, offering help and advice and being understanding when we arrived much later than planned after a long drive up the West Coast. Book here. You will enjoy your stay.

A fantastic place to stay. Very clean apartment, well equipped and great value for money. We only stayed for one night, but will definitely stay for longer next time. Shane and Amy were incredibly helpful. A large earthquake occurred at the top of the South Island not long before our arrival, also affecting our hometown of Wellington. They regularly updated us with the news regarding the closing/reopening of the main highway north so we could get home. The kids also loved the apartment. A great place to take a family, nice and quiet, yet only 2 minutes to the hot pools. Looking forward to our next trip to Hanmer.

Amazing place to stay. These apartments are spacious and modern but also very comfortable.We arrived on a very cold day and the apartment was toasty warm. Shane our host was brilliant showed us to our room totally explained everything and was very helpful. We also booked a massage from the in house massage therapist and have to say she is the BEST! therapist ever. Well worth every cent. Also the shower was amazing! We will be back for sure.

Arrived after dark because of a delay on the ferry. Staff very helpful on check-in, and accommodation really clean. Could not believe the view of the mountains when we woke up. Such a lovely location and a nice place to stay - would love to come back!

thanks for review - we pride ourselves on being helpful and giving good service as well as a very clean unit. Agree the alpine view from our place is spectacular as you are outside the village and get all day sun.

thanks for the review - we pride ourselves on hospitality which we can genuinely offer as we only have 4 units in total to look after! We are "out of the mainstream" meaning we are 1.5km from village - so very quiet and a lovely walk / bike ride into village with unique alpine views out here. All our units are 2brm so families and "double couples" enjoy here but we also get just one couple stays as our prices are affordable! thanks again.

We were travelling with friends and the two bedroom apartment was perfect for two couples. The hosts made our stay very enjoyable and even drove us the short distance to a resturant for our dinner reservation. The apartments are nicely furnished, well equipped and comfortable. We will stay here again.

I stayed with a friend for 3 nights at Hanmer Apartments, in unit 2. Although we thought the place looked a bit small from the outside, when we went inside we realised how roomy it was. I haven't uploaded pictures to this review because all the existing pictures show exactly what it looks like.

The apartments are roomy, comfortable and (thankfully for those like me who really feel the cold) they have great heating! A split system air-conditioner, electric blankets on the beds and extra blankets in the wardrobes kept me warm the whole stay, even when it was snowing outside. The beds were comfortable and there was little noise from outside, leading to a very good night's sleep.

There's clearly been a great deal of thought put into the accommodation by the hosts. Little extras like special towels to take to the thermal pools, free DVD rentals and free WiFi (up to a very reasonable limit, which we never reached!) were very much appreciated. And although the hosts gave us some great restaurant recommendations (and we can attest to the quality of those recommendations, as we tried most of them out, and the food was delicious!) it was also nice having cooking facilities in the apartments, and we did eat in and cook our own meals a few times.

The views of the mountains surrounding the town were amazing, and it was particularly pleasant to wake in the mornings in the loft bedroom and see the mountains out of the windows set into the roof.

In terms of location, it is very close to town, but especially in cold temperatures you wouldn't want to walk into the village. We drove everywhere, but it only took a couple of minutes, so really easy and convenient.

And last but not least, the hosts Amy and Shane were lovely and friendly, and as they live on-site, are always close by if you have any questions. The day we checked out, they gave us advice about the weather and road conditions for our drive back to Christchurch, and warned us about certain parts of the drive where the roads tend to get icy, which was really thoughtful and helpful.

All in all, the Hanmer Apartments were a great place to stay and we would gladly stay there again.
