5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

We spent 4 extremely happy nights at this wonderful accommodation. The facilities are excellent and immaculate, the views amazing and the owners very helpful and friendly. The location is wonderfully quiet and the gardens are beautiful. We found it to be a perfect base for exploring Hanmer and the surrounding area. We felt very much at home and were sad to leave. We live near York in England but hope to return health and wealth permitting! Many thanks to Amy and Shane for their superb hospitality.

We had travelled through the Molesworth with our American visitors, and were delighted to find the accommodation I had booked was even nicer than we had expected. It was a spacious unit, which was extremely well appointed. We had intended going out for a meal at night, but decided to bring back Thai food after we had soaked in the pools so we could make the most of our beautiful outdoor seating over a glass of wine and our meal. Owner was very helpful and we would most definitely stay again - have already recommended you

We had the pleasure of staying here for 3 nights and were really pleased with our choice of accommodation. The apartments are in a peaceful location just out of town and have lovely views to the mountains. Each apartment has a lovely private patio area with a pleasant garden outlook, however, due to the atrocious and unseasonally cold wet weather we experienced during out stay, we didn't have the opportunity to use the patio. However, we did appreciate the warmth and cosiness of the apartment! The owners were very friendly and helpful and the free DVDs, bikes, and pool towels were a bonus - as was the bottle of wine as part of the mid-week special. Although we were here as a couple this time, it is a great location for families as well and it is highly likely we'll return here with our children!

thanks for your kind words - we do offer great value with all the facilities here, it was a shame about the weather, apartments help with the space inside and warmth but you did get to bike ride on last morning in sunshine! thanks again

My husband and I booked a romantic getaway for 2 nights and could not have picked a nicer venue. Beautifully appointed and with a lovely courtyard and views to the mountains, I would thoroughly recommend it. We slept in the downstairs bedroom, although an upstairs mezzanine provided a second option, and would have been great if we were here with our children. We took advantage of the midweek special which came with complimentory bottle of wine and a late check out. The hosts were friendly and helpful and the rooms clean and spacious. Would definitely stay here again

We stayed in Hamner for unfortunately just one night in January. The Apartments are beautiful, perfect for families and we even took a few tips home for our own motel 'Arista' here in Rotorua.
Its a really pleasant and short walk into town, my only regret? I would have liked to have stayed Much longer!!!! Of 7 accommodation providers we stayed with on our trip down south, these guys were, by a country mile, the best.

Very clean, modern property just out of town in a quiet location. Easy access to centre by either free shuttle bus, 20 minute walk (very scenic as you go along a footpath into the back of the village) or borrow a free mountain bike outside Reception.

Unlike many small, privately owned entities, Shane and Amy (the owners) were very relaxed about things. For example our kids regularly went to Reception to root through the loads of free DVD's to borrow, my wife needed to use the laundry on numerous occasions (small fee) and said there were none of these 'anal' do's and don'ts signs everywhere. We've toured Australia and New Zealand and stayed in many similar places where the owners had rules plastered everywhere. The Hanmer Apts are nothing like that.

Apartment was absolutely spotlessly clean, and we also found the quality of everything from the bedding to the TV top class. There were 5 of us, so we had the end apartment which was also suitable for Disabled if required.

Outside, the gardens are lovely, and the back drop of mountains/forests breathtaking. The back lawn has a trampoline and swings for the tiddlers.

One final point, and a personal thank you to Shane and Amy, we regularly found ourselves bombarding them with questions about things like the best route to Picton to catch the ferry, best place to get fuel at 7.30am (beware there's not many pump stations around). Nothing was too much trouble, and the advice we got, upon arrival and when required was top class.

Very nice, modern and clean apartment. As a family of five this accommodation was spacious enough for us all, Beautiful garden to relax in. Short walk to town (10 mins), far enough out to be quiet. Lots of information given to us about Hamner Springs, where to eat and about the pools by Amy. Felt welcome from the time we arrived by both Amy and Shane. Definitely recommend Hamner Apartments and will stay here next time we visit Hamner Springs.

Room Tip: Any apartment would be suitable, as all have access to private garden.
