After going to Hanmer Springs for many years, this is the best motel I've stayed in. We arrived from sunny Nelson to the freezing cold and the owners had the heaters going in our unit which was a very welcoming!! There were some nice touches: little biscuits, sweets and chilled water in the fridge as well as a map of... More

Lovely comfortable motel in the heart of Hanmer for an excellent price! We had a 2 bedroom unit - both with king beds - and it was just perfect. Was warm when we walked in on a cold winters day, spacious and so close to everything! Hosts were super friendly and the cat was happy too.

We are regular visitors to Hanmer but haven't stayed here before. It is the perfect location, hidden away behind the township but walking distance to everywhere. We really enjoyed staying here, the small home comfort touches were really appreciated. Especially loved the nail care kit amongst the other freebies. You can tell this place is looked after by caring people.... More

My partner and I stayed here June 24th and we are so glad we did. Its the small things that make a difference to your trip and it certainly made a difference to ours. We recommend room number 3 with the spa what a treat and it has its own little balcony. Thank you for being wonderful hosts.

This is a neat little motel with everything you could wish for. It's so close to the town's amenities that you can leave the car behind and just walk, but if you want to stay 'at home' the motel has a DVD collection that rivals some video stores I've seen. As well as being escorted to your room and being... More

Amenities already mentioned by others are great location in a quiet neighborhood (vacant lot behind, park in front) yet within walking distance of the hot springs and the town center; large selection of free DVDs and extensive cable TV; reasonable prices; cozy but modern room with kitchenette and appliances. The owners were very friendly, helpful and accommodating, and gave extra... More

I was so pleased that we booked this place. When we arrived the greeting was warm and inviting with lots of information and even an escort to our room. The location is ideal, being a 2 minute walk to the pools. They offer free movies to borrow and the room was well appointed, large, and beautifully clean.

Aspen Lodge Motel was recommended to me by the hotel manager I am staying at in Christchurch. It's a nice little getaway for a weekend. I stayed in a studio, there's a simple kitchenette, the room is spacious and clean. I arrived before check in time, the manager's wife kindly offered to take my bag and pointed me to a... More

Aspen Lodge is well situated to walk into Hanmer Springs township and to the thermal pools which is a few minutes walk away. The units are comfortable and well equipped. The owners are very pleasant and there is an excellent, up to date choice of DVDs to borrow from the office as well. We will definitely stay again.
