My husband and I decided on the spur of the moment to go to Hanmer for the night. We booked a deal with two passes for the hot pools and full breakfast. It was excellent value for money. We dined at the restaurant that night and although there were only two staff on (it was a Sunday night) and the restaurant was quite busy, we were well looked after by the waiter who could not have done enough for us. Due to it being busy, we said we would be happy to wait by the fire and have a drink, the waiter said we could order our food there and when our table and entree were ready he would let us know. The waiter replaced my husbands drink (free of charge) and brought us a bowl of nuts as he perceived we had been so patient - for us it was a lovely touch because the ambience while sitting by the fire was no hard ship by any stretch of the imagination and we certainly didn't think we had been waiting very long. We could not fault the food - it was delicious and so well presented. The breakfast was great and the dining room is stunning. The only down side would be there is no lift for luggage - but that was a small price to pay for the overall experience we had. All the staff we came in contact with were so helpful and friendly.
