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

The best comment on this lovely place is that we have stayed here more times that we've stayed at any other motel. :) We usually camp in the back of our van, but every time in Hanmer we have to spoil ourselves with a couple of night here. It's always clean & tidy, is just the right combination of 'fancy'... More

I stayed one night and was not impressed-First of all,it was very hard to find at night and it is advertised as a luxury motel which is misleading.Sue the older women that owns the motel was not very accommodating. Harrogate is not worth the price and I would definitely go somewhere else!

You can easily walk to town and the pools. We liked the privacy of a separate cottage with our own kitchen and view of the garden. And it was quiet and spotlessly clean. But the owners advert mentioned Luxurious. It is not. This comment we found misleading and disappointing. Because the heating was inadequate the comfort was compromised in that... More

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....
