My husband and I spent two nights in this lovely motel over Easter. The double bedroom with ensuite (attached to the house) was small, but comfortable and relaxing with a small garden outside our door. Sue is very friendly, informative and available and the home baking she leaves each day is a lovely touch. It is a short walk to... More

This was one of the most pleasant stays we have ever had. Our unit was tucked at the back of the owners family home, beside one other unit with a shared verandah. The spacious living/ sleeping area was spotless, with comfortable furniture and a well equipped kitchen. There is a washing machine, complete with washing powder in the room. The... More

This accommodation is more of a Homestay than a motel. There are two self contained studios in the lovely English garden setting and one double bedroom with ensuite and tea making facilities in the main house. We had Studio #1 which is beautifully decorated and furnished and the piece de resistance is the window seat, with plump cushions, where you... More

Stumbled upon the Harrogate Gardens Motel through I-Site in Hanmer. What a find. Lovely character room/own villa with everything we needed set in a beautiful garden. Wonderful hosts - very friendly and helpful, and Sue was a wonderful cook who presented us with something delicious to have with a cup of tea in the afternoon. Great location in downtown Hanmer....

We stopped here for one night and found the place very pleasant, quite and cosy. An easy walk into town, a beautiful setting and thoughtful host who provided towels to visit the spa and some home baking to welcome us. Well worth a stay if you are in Hanmer.

We stayed two nights in the compact room within the house and because the weather was lovely appreciated the outdoor sitting area outside our room. Small negatives: no mirror near a powerpoint for drying my hair. The mirror in bathroom positioned for a short person. Minor criticsms in a lovely place that is much better than a motel. My brother... More

The accommodation is in luxurious garden rooms. The room was very well equipped with a kitchenette and washing machine. The view from the Room 1 is a flower garden with mountains in the background. The motel is located on a quiet side street very close to the centre on the town. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We stayed... More

The accommodation was separate from the house ,spacious and clean...everything worked inc wifi. Top tip....take a decent torch as it's a bit... More

It's not a traditional motel, far better than a motel. A lovely little gem with only 3 accommodation units each with a lovely garden aspect and garden to use. A nice welcoming and relaxing atmospher. Each day, there is a little delicious freshly baked treat. Will stay here again and will definitely recommend to others. Had a very pleasant say.
