I must say having travelled extensively this property has been one of the most difficult to rate. I travelled with my wife and another adult and hence took a two-bedroom unit. On check-in I advised Merv that I would be leaving early on Sunday morning and hence would prefer to deal with the formalities immediately. I was informed "I am... More

Being a regular visitor to Hanmer Springs, and many other motels, I just loved all the wee 'extra- touches'. Warm welcome by Host, room already heated and what a lovely view from windows and balcony of No3, overlooking golf course and hospital garden, favourite room. Extra-touches included, cold-water jug in fridge, town map nicely wrapped up, free ChCh Press, wee... More

We just stayed one night here, but we wish we could have stayed longer to explore the area. We had a one bedroom and it was a very comfortable room with a separate sitting area. The kitchen was well-stocked and the room had a lot of extra little touches. We just had time to enjoy the pools for a couple... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in an upstairs room. Not new but clean, spacious and comfortable. Little extras are a lovely touch. Homemade biscuits, boiled sweets, complimentary newspaper, plunger coffee, free wifi. On return from a day out you find homebaked muffins in your room. Toiletries better than other places I stayed on my travels, even had an emery board.... More

This is a lovely quiet motel with comfortable bed and excellent facilities. The owners are friendly and helpful and the home made daily muffins are a treat I've never experienced whilst staying in a motel. It is situated close to the pools, shops and restaurants.

This motel was clean and tidy with lots of little extra's like the heaters being on when you arrive and the home baking that you get everyday. Aspen is within short walking distance to not only the hot pools but all the cafe's and restaurants as well. Would definitely stay here again. We stayed in the two bedroom unit and... More

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.
