Guest reviews for Springs Escape

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed May 2022

A wonderfully warm and very large property that is perfectly located. We had 2 families and 2 small dogs and there was still oodles of space. The fully fenced garden was a delight.

Stayed April 2022

This property is in an excellent location, and well suited for 2 families. Kitchen had everything we needed, and the outdoor area was lovely but the garden could do with a little bit of maintenance.

Stayed March 2022

We had a lovely stay. Beautiful fully fenced garden which was enjoyed by us and our 2 dogs, and great location easy way to central hanmer and lovely forest walks best of both worlds

Stayed March 2022

It was a great house for a group of adults and 2 dogs. So handy to town centre. A very comfortable, relaxing house. We would all recommend it for similar groups and families.

Stayed December 2021

This is an excellently located family home with a beautiful garden. Well situated for sun with generally good fencing. Great for a relaxed and happy stay. Recommended.

Stayed November 2021

It's a fabulous home for a big group at any season. There is heaps of room inside and out with every thing you need.

Stayed October 2021

We had a wonderful time in Hanmer Springs. The house was really great for our kids and Dog and close to everything! Super house for families. We will definitely return thanks so much team!

Stayed August 2021

Great place to stay with family or friends. Very central close to all amenities

Stayed July 2021

Lovely central house, space for all the family.

Stayed April 2021

A return visit, love this house as it is so close to the pools & yet feels very private & secluded in the garden. Toasty warm with the efficient log burner & great having the dog able to stay. So easy to check-in & out with Bachcare. Highly recommended this accomodation for families.

Stayed March 2021

We come to this house every year! Always a pleasure and prime location! Love it!

Stayed January 2021

The house is in a lovely quiet location in the Hanmer village. Only a few minutes walk to the pools, shops and to forest walks. We found the garden lovely and being fully fenced was very safe for our dogs. The living/lounge is great to relax in especially with large sofa!! We will definitely be back !!

Stayed December 2020

Great location and good house :) was brilliant to be able to have the dogs stay.

Stayed November 2020

We have been staying at this property for three consecutive years and we loved staying here. I would recommend this property to anyone. Great home, close to the town and pools. Thanks and see you next year

Stayed November 2020

Enjoyed staying in this architecturally designed house that is close to all the Hanmer Spring amenities. A very comfortable house with a well established garden to relax in. Lovely being able to bring our dog as well to this fully fenced property. Will stay again

Stayed October 2020

Enjoyed our stay in Hanmer but would not rent this a accommodation again.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your review Deb. We're sorry to hear you wouldn't rent this property again. We've looked into the feedback you sent through in detail and improvements are being made including maintenance work and replacing items to ensure a great guest experience.

Stayed September 2020

Fantastic location. Very comfy and clean

Stayed September 2020

Nice property conveniently close to the village & pools also close to super dog exercise area.

Stayed August 2020

We used Springs Escape & Charming on Cheltenham ( a neighboring property) for an extended family weekend which proved to be ideal for our 4 families. They are an easy walking distance to the village, pools & walking/biking tracks. Both houses were warm & spacious, important for a winter stay.. Bachcare provided a excellent service when we had an issue with the dishwasher in one of the houses & were short of barbecue gas. These were attended to immediately. We hope to use these houses again. Thanks for a great Hanmer experience.

Stayed June 2020

Great location, walking distance to restaurants and the spa, at the same time in a quiet side street close to Dogstream Reserve. We enjoyed the living area with the fireplace and the kitchen/dining area, which felt quite cosy. All in all a good stay for us, who travelled as a couple with a dog.

Stayed March 2020

This is a great property. It's really close to shops and pool. The home is very comfortable and has plenty of room for a family. We had 6 adults and 1 child and there was plenty of room for us all. The garden is lovely and well fenced and very safe.

Stayed December 2019

House is getting a little bit tired and requires some simple maintenance and a good spring clean. Some additional crockery and glassware would be of benefit. Given the rate charged we were a bit disappointed.

Bachcare replied

Thanks for your review Stephanie. We're sorry you were disappointed with Springs Escape and we have passed your feedback on to the owner of the property for review. At Bachcare we pride ourselves on our properties being sparkling clean and we apologise that your experience didn't meet our usual high standards. We hope we can welcome you back so you can enjoy the true Bachcare experience, which we are very proud of.

Stayed November 2019

A great property -we really enjoyed our stay.

Stayed October 2019

Awesome house with everything we needed. Such a lovely garden. So close to the village. Shame we couldn’t stay longer

Stayed September 2019

Excellent location, well fenced for dogs

Stayed September 2019

Very comfortable house which would easily accommodate 8. Plenty of seating inside and out. Sunny with a private garden and fenced for the family dog. We also loved its position 1 min walk to entrance to dog stream walkway and 3 mins walk to hotpools. Wi-Fi seemed to be oversubscribed...near impossible to get internet in the evenings though before 9am was good! Would book again if going with a large family group.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your feedback, and we're sorry to hear the wifi was overloaded in the evenings! We agree that it's a perfect spot to take the pup - and what a wonderful walk nearby!

Stayed September 2019

Big warm and comfortable house. Plenty of space for family and the dog. Master bed very comfortable thank you.

Stayed August 2019

My family and I stayed in this lovely home for two nights. It was well equipped, beautiful and warm, and in a brilliant location in Hanmer! I’d highly recommend Springs Retreat to others. Our host,Eva, was also excellent, communicative and made our stay very easy.

Stayed August 2019

Second time staying at this fab house, and we will be back again. Location is perfect, it's warm and comfortable. The beds are good and the sofa is the best!

Stayed August 2019

The completely fenced yard is ideal, for young children and if travelling with pet dogs. The property is on the flat, and very close to the town centre and hot pools.

Stayed June 2019

We had a fabulous stay. The fire had been lit that afternoon so the place was cosy and warm on our arrival. There was plenty of space for all of us. Great sitting space which I found lacking when viewing other places. Very close to main area but very quiet. I would say that the place felt like a home, not a holiday place, it was so comfortable.

Stayed June 2019

Our stay at this property was wonderful. The house was warm and provided everything needed for a comfortable stay. The easy walk to town and the hot pools was a real bonus with so many wonderful walks close by. We will definitely return to this property.

Stayed May 2019

The house is very well equipped and very comfortable especially the beds.

Stayed March 2019

Good house in a great location. Spacious, calm, warm. Good beds, the fire is really effective, we enjoyed it very much.

Stayed January 2019

Great property, beautiful grounds obviously well cared for from previous owners. Communication from the local Bachcare manager was difficult, she ignored calls and texts - which did spoil the stay. Service from the head office hotline was great but they could not solve minor issues (such as rubbish) on the ground.

Bachcare replied

Hi Daniel, thank you so much for your feedback and we are glad you loved the property as much as we do. We apologise for the communication difficulties with the local holiday manager on the ground and hope that we can make this up to you on a future stay.

Stayed January 2019

Nice spacious property that is in a great location just 3 mins walk to the pools. Unfortunately the property manager was unresponsive to requests.

Bachcare replied

Hi Adam, thank you so much for your feedback and we're so happy that you enjoyed the location. We're so sorry that there was a communication issue with your local Holiday Manager and hope that we have the chance to host you again soon.

Stayed January 2019

Great location, spacious lounge.

Stayed December 2018

The property is not worth the nightly rate in its current state. If you're booking for a special occasion - don't as you will be extremely disappointed. Only positive about this property is it's location.

Bachcare replied

Hi Heidi, We are so sorry for the issues which arose during your stay. As per your emails with the feedback team, I hope it was an acceptable resolution and that we can see you again for a future stay at one of our properties. Thanks!

Stayed December 2018

The location is excellent. Loved the private and beautiful garden/outside area. Great to be able to bring pets to a fully fenced section.

Stayed September 2018

This was a lovely well set up, comfortable home. Excellent location and well equipped with nice comfortable furniture. Very light and warm house.

Stayed April 2018

Beautiful location and comfy home and gardens
