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

Stayed 1 night at this delightful motel. Received a warm welcome on arrival and was more than satisfied with the accommodation. Motel perfectly located within walking distance of the thermal pools, which were awesome, and the centre of the resort. I would highly recommend this motel.

I read other reviews before booking here and can vouch for the positive comments. We arrived before the normal check in time but were able to book in which was wonderful as we had come straight from Christchurch airport having had an overnight flight with little or no sleep. The unit was very comfortable and was in a lovely garden... More

What a lovely place to spend the night. We had the smaller of the three rooms and it was very cosy. Had all we needed + a lovely cake on arrival. Unit was clean with white towels etc and the bed is very comfy. We even got towels for the springs which saved us &10. Gorden the owner was great... More
