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.

Lovely location, an easy walk to the springs and local restaurants. Off road parking, lovely gardens. Our room was within the main house but had its own outside access. This room is a little small, with little room if you have luggage. Bathroom a little gloomy and no shower screen, so tended to wet the toilet and floors. Ideal for... More

Very handy, quiet location. Loved the fresh baking on arrival. Nice spacious room and very private. Only down side was that it was quite dark, especially in the bathroom and outside walking back at night.

This was just what we needed for an overnight stop in Hanmer springs. It was very clean. The house is a short walk away from the hot thermal pools, and very good restaurants nearby. The hosts were helpful with advice on local shops and restaurants.
