Hanmer Springs is an alpine thermal resort village just 90 minutes drive north of Christchurch. It is here the North Canterbury icon Hanmer Lodge has been transformed into the delightful 5 star retreat, The Heritage Hanmer Springs. Set amongst mature trees 385 metres above sea level, and restored to its original Spanish design of the 1930s, the luxurious resort offers the best in service, facilities, peace and seclusion.

The Heritage has 38 hotel rooms and 27 garden suites and villas positioned for maximum privacy. All accommodation has private bathrooms with complimentary toiletries, bathrobes and hairdryers. Colour television with Sky channels, radio, a deluxe mini bar and refrigerator, direct-dial telephone and modem access are standard. The 2 or 3 bedroom villas also have a kitchen with hotplates and microwave oven, full laundry facilities, a private balcony and a single car garage.

The resort has a 5 star list of guest services including 24-hour room service and concierge, babysitting service, tour desk and currency exchange. Renowned for the steaming waters of the Hanmer Springs Thermal Reserve, the area abounds in opportunities for outdoor adventure from rafting and jet boating on the Hurunui River to fishing and a game of golf in stunning mountain surroundings. Hunting excursions can be arranged, and naturally there is skiing within an easy drive in winter. Guests who prefer to stay at the resort can enjoy a game of tennis or petanque, or laze around the heated outdoor swimming pool. There is also a pool for toddlers.

The elegant and beautifully furnished main buildings includes a guest lounge with an open fire in the cooler months, a tea lounge, the Piano Bar and the Dining Room with its vast ceiling and roaring log fire in winter.
