Positive Reviews

Convenient location in Hanmer Springs

Negative Reviews

Units need updating

It appears that the décor in some of the units is starting to show its age and guests would like to see the accommodation refreshed. They also mention that the sofas need to be replaced since they aren’t very comfortable either as seating or as fold-out beds.

Wi-Fi poor

Guests feel a bit let down by the Wi-Fi service here. They report that it can be quite difficult connecting to the service in some of the units and this is particularly irritating for those that want to get some work done or need to check emails.

Noisy at times

The units don’t seem to be very good at keeping out unwanted noise. Guests can sometimes hear sounds from guests staying in adjacent units and this can be quite disturbing, especially during the night. Some units are detached so possibly aren’t affected as much by this issue.
