As a family with an 8 year old (1.2M + tall) we weren't sure what to expect. But I must say, this was one of the best days out in NZ. It was a weekday outside school holidays so much quieter than usual, I assume, so our 8 year old had the time of her life. There are three huge... More

Been to Hanmer Springs 4 times and it never gets boring. Alpine town in the middle of New Zealand. Wake up Conical Hill a must, followed buy Hanmer Hot Springs. Last time we visited, we booked accommodation with Hanmer Holiday Homes, if you book at the right times they do excellent deals (book 2 nights and get a 3rd free).

The pools are nice and relaxing, however there is only so much time you can sit in a hot pool for, there aren't many seating areas outside of these. All lockers are outside and are quite complicated to use. So consequently you spend time queuing to get access to yours while everyone tries to work the system out. Not great... More

We enjoyed our first experience at hammer springs, clean warm and well guarded. The water is warm and liked how separate the family area was, even though you could hear the noise it was hidden so more relaxing!

Dropped into Hanmer Springs on our second last day of our trip just to relax and certainly did. Great place for a family. Not that far off the major highway. All good.

What a great way to relax and cool off after a drive down from Blenheim in 30 deg C heat! We stayed at the Drifters Inn over road and they provided free pool towels so it was just a $2 coin for the locker and we were in business ($2 = 2 hours). To get a locker it couldn't be... More

On the plus side, there are quite a few different pools with different temperatures- most which are safe for pregnant women. Had a relaxing time with nice water jet massages in one of the pools. Just make sure you go towards the end of the day when it's quieter. Just felt it was quite expensive for what it was and... More

When we visited it was a holiday weekend so it was very busy however we really enjoyed the experience of the pools. Once we got used to the odour, the hot sulphur pools were very good as were the hydro massage pools, all very relaxing. Definitely worth a visit !
