Recommend day/night pass into the thermal spa pools which is more economical than one entry. I spend several hours during the day there, then go and rest at accommodation have something to eat early and then go for walk up the hill into the forest, and then return to the pools in the evening I find it is best to go into the thermal pool/spa at the end of the day before bed for a good nights sleep.
We always have a pamper package when we arrive which includes a massage, sauna or steam, and use of the pools. We go there for rest and relaxation mainly.
A small mountain town which caters for people visiting the hot pools. Some great forest walks, mountain bike tracks and limited skiing coupled with great restaurants and very varied accommodation.
Lovely resort town, with lots of exciting attractions all year round. Hot pools and spa, bike and horse riding, walks, beautiful scenery,jet boating, shopping and nice food places.
Theres a golf course, ski field and many other attractions. Travelling from Christchurch is 2hrs north heading towards the Lewis Pass.Highly recommend.
quiet town that gets busy during the weekends. Lack of proper cafes and restaurants, also not many shopping options considering its one of the tourist attractions.
although its very nice spring, just not nature enough, doesnt have good privacy either. not the best spa i have been to
the main attraction of the Hanmer Springs adventure centre is a must for all who wonder into this town.
There is a variety of eateries to choose from and all within the town centre area.
