“Nice Quiet Location,”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2010

I loved this place, it was the start of our journey, we went to Hamner to relax for a copy of days prior to travelling, easy to achieve here, as the location is a couple minutes drive out of town, and very quiet location. The apartments were clean and comfortable and lived up to our idea of a 4 star rating. (We stayed at a few and this was on par with Peppers Beacon, while most other places were disappointing). Only complaint would be the eating area is tight for more than two inside. However, an outside table is right outside the door with views of the mountain, which we utilized. Would definitely recommend & stay again.

We absolutely loved our short stay at Hanmer Apartments. I have stayed aat several different places in Hanmer over the years but this place is top of my list by a mile! Shane and his wife are lovely hosts and couldnt have been more helpful to make our stay perfect.
The apartment was superbly clean and cosy I could live in there long-term, the outside area would be awesome in summer.
Very comfy bed and thanks for making up the cot for our baby which unfortunately she didn't end up using as she slept in our bed all night!
Sorry about the broken wine glass:(
We will definately be back and stay a bit longer next time when our daughter is a bit older.

Perfect spot with lovely views, lots to do for the kids and good indoor/outdoor flow of the apartments. The rooms were stylish, clean and spacious for a family. Very good value and lovely service!

We couldn't have picked a more perfect place for a retreat from the earthquake! Amy and Shane are amazing hosts, and even awesome babysitters!! Our daughter loved playing with their kids - so much so, that Amy even let her help bake some muffins!
The accommodation met our every need, not a single thing they could improve on. can't wait to go back for another stay - would be a great place to stay in the winter and travel to the local ski fields!
We had our 5 year old with us, so was just out of walking distance to the hot pools etc, but when she's a bit older we would use the mountain bikes available to guests.

So, so looking forward to our next stay there, and will be telling eveyone we know to go and stay there!

This place is great. Quietness and warmth is ensured with double glazing, a heat pump and private outdoor dining areas off each room. Our two children (3 and 5 years) loved being able to play with the hosts' ball and the swings in the back garden while we enjoyed watching, sitting outside drinking in the gorgeous view of the snow-capped mountains.

Amy and Shane are very welcoming and they go the extra mile to provide a comfortable environment. The rooms are very clean and provide everything you could need for a short stay. The kitchenette has a hotplate, microwave, fridge and a big plug in frypan which was fine for us for a couple of days. However, if there was something else you needed I'm sure Shane and Amy would try and supply it for you as they are extremely helpful without being in your face.

We love Hanmer and think of it as Queenstown's friendly smaller sister. However many accommodation options here tend to be either very expensive or looking tired. For us, Hanmer Apartments provided high-quality, new accommodation for a good price. I would highly recommend this apartment to families with two children, or four adults traveling together.

We first stayed at Hanmer Apartments a couple of weeks after it was opened in 2009. We liked it so much that it was our first choice for accommodation when we returned to Hanmer Springs a year later and we weren't disappointed.

Amy and Shane continue to provide a friendly and welcoming environment, with well presented accommodation that suits both families and friends alike. The apartments (a short drive or easy walk into the town centre) remain scrupulously clean and well appointed, including kitchen facilities that would allow for easy self-catering. The beautiful outlook from the apartments is also a plus.

I would recommend Hanmer Apartments to anyone wishing to visit Hanmer Springs (which you definitely should!)
