Stayed here for the last two nights. Sue is very accomodating. Got to our room and there were fresh eggs laid from the chickens that day and brownies! The room was comfortable and perfect for what we needed. Only a short walk to the town which is perfect. Would definitely stay again!

Pretty gardens but not quite 'Affordable Luxury', as advertised. Friendly hosts, comfy bed and spacious room, but it was pretty tired overall and needed a good vacuum. The bathroom was badly designed and flooded when you used the shower. Nice spa bath though. There was a shelf above the handbasin that caught your head when you cleaned your teeth. More... More

Our family of 5 took 2 adjoining rooms here. Spacious, spotless, the hosts clearly paid attention to detail. Freestanding cottages are surrounded by a lovely, well-manicured garden. So refreshing to get free wifi! Very short walk to thermal pools & town shops.

We had the best motel experience in NZ yet! arrived to freshly baked chocolate brownies, the motel is literally 3 minutes walk from the pools and shops and a huge bathroom with both spa bath and walk-in shower. I had the most fantastic sleep on gorgeous beds and a very quiet room. Sky sport for the rugby, free dvds and... More

The room was lovely, super clean, spacious and pretty! The bathroom was great as well, it was spotless. The complimentary towels to use at Hanmer Springs (just a short walk away) were very welcome as we only had minny travel towels. The lady who welcomed us were super nice and helpful, and the brownies that she left for us were... More

Firstly, the motel is a little difficult to find as the sign is a little small and looks like a house from the roadside but once we found it and were welcomed it was excellent. The hosts were extremely accommodating and friendly. The room is of excellent quality with a spa bath for two. Only couple things that weren't ideal... More

We stayed at this hotel as a part of a pamper package with the hot pools. It actually was a lovely place and close to everything in town. The room was self contained with a small kitchen and table and chairs. The bathroom was also big with shower and spa bath. Super clean, tidy, comfortable and warm. The baking from... More

We checked in at 2pm as part of a pamper package. Our host Sue showed us to our room and she even did baking for us which was amazing, there was a small issue with an electric blanket while we were out at the spa this was very impressive. The room is very spacious and clean and we did not... More
