Delightful quiet and sunny unit, and afternoon tea cakes a nice touch. We chose this motel for 'Full kitchen' stated on website, but there was no oven which was a bit awkward Comment by another reviewer is valid re lack of lighting outside at night Great location as easy walking distance to pools and town. Would choose this place again

Excellent accomodation gorgeous unit with everything you need down to homemade baking on arrival. Spotlessly clean, bright and oh so very quiet and peaceful. Lovely hosts. Theres not one thing you could find fault with here. Definately will be a regular.

This little place is just off the centre of Hanmer, with easy walking access to everything in town. Our hostess was charming and friendly and our room was very nice (being male I don't see the reason for the 32 cushions on the bed, but I was told that they were a lovely touch). The room joined the main house,... More

What a great motel. The garden room was spacious, well appointed and even had a corner spa in the bathroom. The owners couldn't have been better hosts. As for the location, just a very short walk from the springs and all of the local restaurants. The gardens of the motel were beautiful as well. A great find!

Great hosts, clean room, sound sleep,. My only complaint is that the bathroom was very cold. The room was the right size for a quick overnight stay, the price was right and the location great. I would recommend the motel to others. Would recommend a summer stay...the garden looked inviting, even in winter.

We're regular visitors to Hanmer and have sampled lots of motels and holiday homes - this place is a wonderful find for an overnight stay. Lovely setting, large room with very comfortable king bed, couch, kitchenette and delightful bay window with comfy seating. The bathroom is superb and the spa bath a treat. We enjoyed the friendly welcome including sumptuous... More

We stayed here in the queen room for one night on our way through to Christchurch the next day. It's a very small establishment -- two suites with kitchen facilities and the queen room with ensuite that we stayed in -- and the owner was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Its position is excellent, being off the main street... More

This little hostel is perfect. It' very small, just a few rooms next to the owners' house. It is fully equipped with cooking equipment, stove, microwave, fridge TV, wifi and sattelite. The spa bath in the bathroom is extremely relaxing. The room is very comfy with a big bed and sofa. There's lots of information leaflets provided too. The location... More

For us to travel to this tranquil garden oasis in Hanmer not far from the town centre was great for soothing frayed Christchurch nerves. Thoroughly recommend it for people from Christchurch who might previously only do a day trip

This really was one our best accomodation choices! The room was huge, with a kitchen, bathroom with spa bath, living area with sofa and also a huge comfy bed. The hostess was excellent, baking us lovely cakes to try each day and generally being very helpful! Everything you could possibly need is in the room - menus of local restuarants,... More
