My husband and I stayed here for one night in December. The staff were very friendly on arrival and gave us milk. The units were a good size, clean and had everything you needed, although they were dated. It was quite close to town and had lovely views. The shower pressure was poor. I would recommend this if you are... More

Our group of adults and young children stayed only one night but were sorry to go. Our log cabins were nestled up among trees and bush- with the birds chirping right next to our cabins. Very peaceful surroundings. In front were trees and gardens that made these back units private and nearby was a handy children's play area so we... More

The one bed chalet was lovely. Very clean. A lovely place to stay for a relaxing break. And the owner was very friendly. It is slightly further from the hot pools but that didn't bother us at all. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed here for two nights in August - a couple of cold winters days. The motel is fairly dated but it is warm, clean and comfortable and for Hamner Springs the price was OK. It is 10 minutes walk into town and to the thermal pools. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. The only negative is the common... More

Stayed for one night only and was pleased to leave. The location in Hanmer is fine however the interior and furnishings of the rooms desperately needs updating. The tired and dated appearance was quite depressing.

GFour of us stayed here in April in Chalet 3 & 4, this accommodation is so inviting, very clean and well equipped, so relaxing, the customer service is outstanding, Just a short walk to the town centre and hot springs. We all highly recommend this quaint accommodation, would love to see it when there is snow around.

Super cosy chalet! Good position, very clean room, nice view, All the facilities inside, kind owners! We hope to visit the place again (maybe during the winter with the snow outside)! Valeria and Giovanni

If you are looking for a "downtown" place to stay this is not for you. But if you want space for three adults with kitchen facilities then this is great. It is only 5 minute drive into town. It is quiet and the view from the kitchen window is spectacular. Wonderful, friendly hosts.

We had to change our dates last minute and the staff were very accommodating. We experienced excellent service from the staff and a marvelously prepared room. Very warm rooms and all the amenities were provided. Cant wait to stay there again!
