There are a number of interconnected hot springs of differing temperatures, adequate change rooms and suit, towel rentals. If you love hot springs, you will probably enjoy this.

Great location of pools with varying temperatures from 36 to 41 degrees in the pools. Plenty of space. Everyone very friendly. Spent two hours relaxing and then had massages which were wonderful and very soothing at the spa. Receptionists were very helpful and looked after us both. Great feeling having this done before leaving to return back home to Auckland... More

Spend a day or more here and wallow in the springs it's thoroughly recommended. Good for all, plenty of things to do for children and adults alike. Take an evening soak and sleep the night away.

Great time always when I come here, great for couples or group. Always busy. Nice, relaxed atmosphere. Pools are so good, especially getting in to them in the winter. But tough getting out!! Always really clean and tidy which is great. The cleanliness of the bathroom and pools are always top notch. Cheap and cheerful and you can spend how... More

I spent a very pleasant hour here. The change rooms are clean and large. The pools are also clean and there are plenty of options to swim. I only used the thermal pool and am very satisfied. $24 single entry but there are all sorts of other options available and discounts for families, 60+ and bigger groups. Cafe on the... More

This is a must do if you are in Hanmer Springs weather you have kids or not. The thermal pools are fantastic and the slides are even better! We were fairly lucky and had no lines so we could continue going up and down each time. Thanks for such a great time the pirate spa was great too.

We had not planned to visit Hanmer Springs, but I like to think that fate took us there. These pools are certainly worth a visit. They are very popular and we happened to visit when it was raining. That wasn't a problem because the temperature of the pools ranged from 36-42 degrees. Once you got used to the smell of... More
